Coin Acceptor Selection Chart
Single & Multiple Coins - Standard Coin & X-Mark

 

 

  Xeptor
Model
Product Description Diameter Range- in.

Clad Alloy

Optical Code Diameter Accuracy Coins Per Second
MA-600

Mechanical acceptor for a single coin. Basic diameter, weight, and magnetic alloy tests.

Fixed by choice of cradle --- --- .020" 5
MA-601

Single coin electronic coin comparator. A sample of the coin to accept is placed in a comparison cradle.

.70 - 1.47 --- --- ~.080" 7
MA-606

Obsolete: Electronic multi-coin acceptor configured with rotary switches for preset coin sets.

.90 - 1.15 --- --- .015" 10
MA-701

Obsolete: Accepted plastic optically encoded tokens.

.93 - 1.00 --- Prism --- 10
MA-711

Obsolete: Same as MA-701 but also accepted US Quarter.

.93 - 1.00 --- Prism .020" 10
MA-800

Highest performance multi-coin electronic coin acceptors. These units measure edge and center metal, diameter, and the X-10 reads the X-Mark code.

.70 - 1.47 --- --- .015" 20
MA-820 .70 - 1.47 Yes --- .015" 20
X-10 .70 - 1.47 --- X-Mark .015" 20


 

Xeptor Common Features
(X-10, MA-800, MA-820)

Physical Size IDX coin acceptors have the industry standard 3.5" wide and 4.0" tall dimensions with three shoulder screw locations on each side. See dimensional drawings for details. Note that the X-50 and X-70 units have a separate electronics control module not shown above.
Electrical Interface Each IDX coin acceptors has an 8 pin header which connects to one of many Personality Plugs which adapt it to all popular connector types used in the industry.
Coin Memory IDX coin acceptors do not hold a physical sample coin, but rather learn and hold the electronic coin signature for as many as 6 different coins or tokens.
Center & Edge Metal IDX coin acceptors have a unique coin centering coin chute and small metal alloy sensors which enable them to separately measure the alloy on both the edge and center of  bi-metal coins.
Credit Optics Option All IDX coin acceptors can be optionally ordered with or without built in credit optics used to verify that the coin has passed the gate relay in the proper direction and speed.
Coin Programming All IDX coin acceptors may be programmed by hand using a procedure for dropping sample coins through the unit. Xeptors with version 4.0 and later firmware can be programmed at the touch of a button using a hand held Coin Selector device.
Hinged Opening The hinged opening door-like construction of all IDX coin acceptors allows for easy release of bent or shingled coins without the worry that someone will do damage with a screwdriver.
Built In Diagnostics In order to quickly diagnose possible causes for operational trouble, one only needs to turn the built-in rotary switch and observe an LED to check the operation of each part of the unit.
Auto Tune Technology Long term stability of acceptance is assured via firmware that automatically compensates for component age, temperature effects, and other physical configuration changes.


 

 

Notes For Selection Table Information

Clad Coin Alloy Sense Clad coins have an inner alloy clad by a distinctly different outer alloy on some security tokens and some government issued currency. Some IDX Xeptors have advanced non-contact inductive sensing circuitry that can actually read the center layer separately from the outer layer.
Optical Code Read IDX holds patents covering the X-Mark and SmartMark "minted facet" technology and the new H-Mark "holographic facet" technology, each of which add security against cross play and counterfeiting. X-Mark and H-Mark tokens are produced under license by Osborne Coinage, and SmartMark tokens are produced under license by Roger Williams Mint.
Diameter Accuracy The diameter accuracy quoted is based on the statistical standard deviation in the measurement of a large number of coins. (This pretty much means the average error.) The cut-off point for acceptance/rejection is typically approximately 3 times the standard deviation value in the table.
Coins Per Second This is the rate for rejecting a bad coin among a stream of otherwise good coins. The rate for acceptance of a stream of 100% good coins is approximately 33% higher. The quoted rate is based on coins in the mid range of diameters the unit accepts. The rate is generally a bit higher for smaller coins and a bit lower for larger coins.
