Eagle – X10 Xeptor – Download X10 Literature
IDX’s X10 series of multi-coin Xeptors will accept a mixture of 6 different coins. This coin mixture can consist of any combination of currencies, tokens, and X-Mark® or Smart Mark® encoded security tokens. The X10 Xeptor has internal programming to allow the operator the ability to program new coins, change the number of coin pulses per coin and field self-diagnostic information. The Eagle offers a multi-color indicator LED for operational status & field diagnostics. Coin pulses are released through a shielded relay to offer the OEM an easier interface for multiple coin voltage requirements. Other coin outputs are available to meet the different demands of the OEMs. This smart thinking Xeptor continues updating its memory on each coin as the Xeptor ages.
Digging coin jams out is a thing of the past. The built-in coin release opens the chute to drop through bent and mutilated coins. Coin jams are also caused where bent faceplates are misaligned with the Xeptor’s faceplate to meter doors. This has been eliminated with the introduction of a new all stainless steel snap-in faceplate, Model MA19, which relieves the strain from bent doors. Diameter accuracy of .015″ at a rate of 20 coins per second* (see notes).
Optional are the “Old Style” MA20 2″ faceplate, credit sense optics for extra security, and programmable multi-denominational diverter controls direction for presorting coins.

Xeptor Chart Notes:
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.
Xeptor Common Features
IDX’s X10, MA800, MA812, & MA602
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.
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.
IDX coin acceptors do not hold a physical sample coin, but rather learn and hold the electronic coin signature for as many as 6 (12 for MA812) different coins or tokens. (Note: MA602 model only has US Quarter factory programmed and is not field programmable.)
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, excluding the MA602, 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.
All IDX coin acceptors, excluding the MA602, 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.
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. (Note: This feature is not available for the MA602 model.)
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.
