Coin Acceptor - Programmable 1 Coin Type -

by interact on Fri Sep 21, 2012 2:08 pm

Hi,

I need to add a COIN acceptor to my project. But I need to be able to interface with it with USB and with .NET. I was not able to find if this has a API/SDK interface we can use to know when a COIN has been inserted?

Kind Regards
interact

These devices have a simple interface that sends a pulse on a wire to indicate coin insertion. To interface via USB, you would need a microprocessor with a USB interface to interpret the pulse from the coin acceptor and forward the event via USB. This would be fairly straightforward to do with an Arduino or a USB Boarduino.
