Coin mech wiring question
« on: March 20, 2017, 04:56:47 am »
Hi.

Quick question about connecting up this coin mech when I get that far in the future.

I see that There is 1 cable running from the main part of the device to a small pcb on the side, I do belive I have wired it correctly as There is Ony 3 options on the pcb. 12v, gnd and CR. Now what im wondering about is, is the CR the one that should be wired to the i-pac? Does it stand for Credit?

A 5v Zener diode (voltage regulator) is your friend . . . unless you want to fry your 5v IPac by applying 12v to it.  :scared

Check out the info at the bottom of this page on the Ultimarc site.

The "coin signal" wire in this diagram corresponds to the "CR" wire on your coin recognizer and you can see the Zener diode on the left.
