Just seeing if this coin mechanism, SKU.COM-11636, will work with $2 coins?

And if the mechanism has to be programmed for particular coins?



Hi Simon,

Yes, it will work with $2 coins. You program them by feeding it samples of the coins you want it to recognise, and then it outputs a signal you can hook into your projects when a coin is inserted.

Here’s the direct link to the guide for you:

Thanks Oliver
Just wanted to make sure before I purchased it.

Thanks again.

No worries, just let us know if you have any other queries :slight_smile:

This might sound silly but relatively new at This coin mech repair, wondering once you program the coins how do you get the machine or mech to recognise what equals a credit for gameplay so if it is $1 a play and you put 5 20c etc or a single coin so a credit is registered

It’ll depend on your machine. You might need a microcontroller in the middle - like an arduino - to covert whatever the coin acceptor outputs to something the machine recognises.

Thanks for the reply So does that mean the machine is already preprogrammed to a certain denomination in order to register a credit ? It’s second hand machine btw

Nah that’s: I don’t know - you’ll have to test it :wink:
