Multi-coin Coin Mech Accepts 8 different coins.
The setup procedure for this mech can be quite daunting so here is an example which helps to understand how it works:
To set coin mech to accept 10p = one credit and 20p = 2 credits:
Looking at each column in the table it can be seen that the first mode column (mode 1) gives the available correct choice of pulse combinations, in this case 1 and 2 pulses. The correct pulses appear on coin channels 3 and 4 (rows in the table) so we will set 10p as channel 3 and 20p as channel 4.
Step 1: Program Mech to accept 10p coins on channel 3:
Switch SW 4 and 5 ON
Select channel 3 by switch 1 OFF, 2 ON , 3 OFF
Insert 10 X 10p coins. After the tenth coin, the solenoid should click twice.
Step 2: Program Mech to accept 20p coins on channel 4:
Select channel 4 by switch 1, 2 ON, switch 3 OFF
Insert 10 X 20p coins. After the tenth coin, the solenoid should click twice.
Step 3: Set Mech to the correct multi-coin mode (column in the table)
From the table, it can be seen that mode 1 gives the correct pulse count for this setup.
With power OFF, set switch 4 and 5 OFF
Select mode 1 by switch 1, 2, 3 OFF
Power ON and test.
In the table fractions such as ½ mean 2 coins are needed for one pulse.
4 + 1 means an extra bonus pulse is sent after 4 coins
|Mag-Stik Switch Connections: Special Installation Information
There are three different types of switches used on the Mag-Stik. They all have differing connections. To ensure you use the correct wiring, remove one switch by unscrewing the single fixing screw. On the other side of the switch the connections are marked in the form of a diagram as below:
Mag-Stik Plus Dust Washer.
If your mounting method leaves the Mag-Stik Plus plastic dust washer resting directly on the joystick faceplate, the washer might become lodged under the chrome sleeve on the shaft if it is pulled fully outwards during the switch from 4 to 8 way. There are two possible quick fixes for this: Either bend the washer so that it is slightly convex, or position a thin piece of card, cut to roughly the size of the washer, under the washer, to hold it away from the faceplate.
If your mounting method required removal of the joystick knob, this is done by removing the entire shaft. The Nylock nut on the rear end of the shaft is removed first. On the Mag-Stik Plus note carefully the order of assembly of the parts, especially the location of the toothed lock-washer, under the U-bracket. Beware of the spring which is under pressure! In case you forgot how it fits together here is a diagram:

|Coin Mech Connections and setup.|
|Coin Mech setup steps:
Set the slot height plate to the correct coin size. Note that for larger coins, this plate is best removed to avoid bearing against the coin door.
Clip the correct sample coin into the spring-loaded clip, in place of the dummy plastic coin.
Leave the switches unchanged for most applications
Connections are as follows (see diagram above):
Pin 1 connects to a 12 volt supply. This can be from a JAMMA power supply or a PC disk drive connector (yellow wire).
Pin 2 connects to the I-PAC coin 1 input.
Pin 3 connects to GND on the I-PAC
The Zener diode connects between pins 2 and 3 on the coin mech plug. It is possible to push the wire ends of the diode into the plug connector housing.Note the "line" end of the diode must go to pin 2.
The coin signal is normally a 12 volt signal. If using with devices which expect a 5 volt signal it is VITAL to connect the supplied Zener Diode as shown otherwise the device you are connecting to will be damaged.
