General information about these instructions<br />

To make it easier for you to navigate within these instructions, the following<br />

markings were used within the text:<br />

• Safety instructions, which have to be taken note of in order to protect<br />

operators and equipment, have been written in bold and been given the<br />

pictogram .<br />

• Special notes, which are to facilitate the use of the program, have been<br />

written in italics and also been given a pictogram .<br />

• Screen text have been written in ”Courier”.<br />

• MENU ITEMS and BUTTONS have been written in small capitals.<br />

For simple navigation through the program, the individual possible<br />

navigation steps in the software <strong>WinEMP</strong> have been listed in chapter<br />

”Menu structure”.<br />

To facilitate the programming of the coin validator with the software<br />

<strong>WinEMP</strong>, these instructions also refer to the separate operating<br />

instructions for the coin validator and the testing device:<br />

• General description<br />

– G-18.2900<br />

– G-18.3000<br />

– G-18.mft<br />

• Tester G-19.0594/4<br />

General information on software <strong>WinEMP</strong><br />

The software <strong>WinEMP</strong> is used to diagnose and program <strong>NRI</strong>-coin<br />

validators and to convert <strong>NRI</strong>-coin validators to the Euro.<br />

After every programming step performed on a device, please<br />

make sure that the label of the device is adapted to suit the new<br />

settings of the device.<br />

<strong>WinEMP</strong> has been designed for use with a device environment consisting<br />

of <strong>NRI</strong><br />

• Coin validator G-18<br />

• Test G-19.0594 (with adapter G-19.0640) and<br />

• Card reader “License Card Module” G-19.0647 (scope of delivery).<br />

National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude INTRODUCTION<br />

The program identifies the coin validator connected and its device specific<br />

data and presents them on the screen of your PC. The card reader<br />

connected between the coin validator and the PC to accept licence<br />

dependent programmed chip cards ensures that only the owner of the<br />

card can modify data at programming level. If the card is not inserted into<br />

the card reader, only the data of the diagnostics screen can be displayed.<br />

<strong>WinEMP</strong> has the following advantages:<br />

• integrated card reader ”License Card Module” for customer own chip<br />

cards as access authorization to the programming level and protection<br />

against incorrect operation<br />

• simple installation of CD-ROM and fast software update from the<br />

Internet via the <strong>NRI</strong> homepage (www.nri.de)<br />

• user friendly navigation features based on Windows navigation<br />

• backup file for every single setting of the coin validator saved on the<br />

hard disc<br />

• problem-free and time saving Euro conversion of different coin<br />

validators<br />

Licence and utilization agreement<br />

Scope of delivery<br />

The software <strong>WinEMP</strong> described in these instructions may only<br />

be used if the licence and utilization agreement has been<br />

accepted.<br />

In addition to the software <strong>WinEMP</strong> (CD-ROM) the following items are also<br />

included in delivery:<br />

• card reader ”<strong>WinEMP</strong> License Card Module” G-19.0647<br />

• customer specific chip card<br />

• connection cable (card reader – PC)<br />

COM2) using the enclosed connecting cable via the interface labelled<br />

”PC connector”.<br />

• Plug the connecting plug of the power pack into the socket ”9 V DC” of<br />

the card reader.<br />

Only use the 9 V power pack enclosed in delivery!<br />

• Now connect the tester and the power pack with the mains supply. The<br />

power LED on the card reader should be green.<br />

• Switch the tester on at the mains switch (for operation and function of the<br />

tester please refer to the operating instructions ”Tester G-19.0594/4“).<br />

To program the coin validator G-18 battery, it must be set to<br />

permanent wake-up mode using the tester (WE diode is on).<br />

• Please make sure that the DIL switches of the coin validator are in the<br />

required positions (see sticker on the rear of the coin validator and also<br />

refer to separate instructions for the coin validator).<br />

• Insert your chip card in the direction of the arrow into the slot on the<br />

card reader labelled ”Chip Card”.<br />

Install <strong>WinEMP</strong><br />

If you want <strong>WinEMP</strong> only to display the data of the diagnostics screen,<br />

the chip card does not have to be inserted in the card reader. The chip<br />

card does need to be inserted in the card reader to program the data.<br />

The <strong>NRI</strong> Euro, adjusting and diagnostics program <strong>WinEMP</strong> is supplied on<br />

a CD-ROM. Please proceed as follows to install the program from the<br />

CD-ROM:<br />

• Close all open programs on your PC.<br />

• Open Windows Explorer and start the installation file ”<strong>WinEMP</strong>.exe” in<br />

the CD-ROM drive by double-clicking on it.<br />

• To install the program, please follow the instructions on the screen.<br />

• After successfully installing the program, please re-start your computer.<br />

data) the main menu (diagnostics<br />

screen) is displayed – if the device<br />

environment has been correctly installed<br />

as described above.<br />

The card LED on the card reader is red as long as the software accesses the<br />

card which has been inserted in the device.<br />

As long as the card LED is red, the card must not be pulled out or<br />

pushed in. This can cause the card to be destroyed!<br />

If, after a short time, the error message ”Validator not found –<br />

please check connections” is displayed, either the device<br />

environment has not been connected or the connections/cables are<br />

faulty (see chapter 4 ”Error messages”).<br />

National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

3 Operation<br />

The diagnostics screen, which you will access automatically after starting<br />

up the program enables you to check the perfect working order of the<br />

device before programming the coin validator using the presented basic<br />

and I/O data.<br />

In the diagnostics screen, the type of the coin validator recognized by the<br />

program is displayed below the menu bar.<br />

The left column displays the so-called basic data for this coin validator:<br />

• Device/serial number (compare label of the coin validator), date all<br />

default values were programmed, date the last adjustment was made to<br />

the device data and EPROM number (software version) of the device<br />

• Status of the checksum (RAM or EEPROM) (OK/defective)<br />

If the checksum is defective, the coin validator will not accept any<br />

coins. The device must be repaired by a service technician.<br />

• Number of the active data block 0 or 1, depending on the position of the<br />

DIL switch (only for devices with two data blocks)<br />

10


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

The right column of the screen provides information about<br />

• Operating voltage (only G-18.mft)<br />

• Status/functionality of the inhibit line<br />

inactive (line in standby)/active (line activated)<br />

• Status/functionality of the string sensor (only devices with string sensor)<br />

inactive (sensor in standby)/active (sensor activated)<br />

• Status of the external individual coin inhibit lines (only G-18.3000 and G-18.mft)<br />

_ = not inhibited/digit = inhibited<br />

• Status/functionality of the accepted coin sensor (CP3 signal)<br />

inactive (sensor in standby)/active (sensor activated)<br />

• Amount of accumulated credit (totalizer credit, only G-18 battery in<br />

totalizer mode)<br />

• DIL switch position of the switch set on the rear of the coin validator<br />

_ = OFF/digit = ON<br />

(for the function of the DIL switches, please refer to the separate coin<br />

validator operating instructions).<br />

Changes to the data described above (e.g. by coin insertion, switching<br />

a DIL switch) when the program is open are immediately recognized by<br />

<strong>WinEMP</strong> and displayed.<br />

Using the menu bar at the upper edge of the screen, the functions explained<br />

in the following sections can be accessed (for operator guidance please<br />

refer to chapter ”Menu structure”).<br />

11


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Perform tests<br />

Two basic requirements for the functionality of the coin validator are intact<br />

coin signal lines between the vending machine (tester) and the coin<br />

validator as well as a perfectly functioning acceptance gate and sorting<br />

gate(s). <strong>WinEMP</strong> enables you to test these device parts.<br />

Test coin signal lines<br />

To test the coin signal lines between the vending machine (tester) and the<br />

coin validator, select the menu item LINE TEST in the sub-menu TESTS...<br />

in the diagnostic screen. Whilst the message Please wait is being<br />

displayed the function of the lines is being tested independently. The<br />

LEDs on the tester assigned to the six lines light up briefly. If an LED<br />

does not light up, either the connection between the coin validator and<br />

the vending machine (tester) is defective (cable, plug-in connections) or<br />

the outlet level in the coin validator is defective. In this case, please contact<br />

the service technician.<br />

Test gates<br />

In order to test the acceptance gate and the possibly existing sorting gates<br />

in the coin validator, select the menu item GATE TEST in the sub-menu<br />

TESTS... in the diagnostics screen. Whilst the message Please wait<br />

is being displayed, the function of the acceptance gate and sorting<br />

gates is being tested independently. You can hear the solenoid being<br />

attracted and being released again. If you can’t hear a noise, the<br />

module must be checked.<br />

12


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Compare coin values with stored channel values<br />

(Table screen)<br />

After inserting the coins, the coins pass inductive/optical sensors and<br />

generate individual measurements. Due to a special arrangement of the<br />

sensors, each coin is checked for its material properties and dimension. If<br />

a number of coins of the same type is inserted (e.g. 2 Euro), for one<br />

measurement, different measurement values are generated which are<br />

close together. For coin acceptance, the coin is assigned an upper and<br />

lower limiting value, which forms a so-called acceptance band. The<br />

acceptance band determined for a type of coin represents the coin<br />

channel.<br />

To optimize the rejection of false coins, it may be necessary to individually<br />

change the acceptance band (to set the acceptance bands refer to the<br />

section ”Adjust coin acceptance band” in this chapter).<br />

To compare individual coin values with the programmed limiting values of<br />

the channels by inserting the coins, you must proceed as follows:<br />

• In the diagnostics screen (see page 10), in the sub-menu, select<br />

SETTINGS and then select the menu item TABLE.<br />

The table screen is displayed.<br />

13


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

The left side of the screen displays the channel superordinate data and the<br />

right column displays the channel specific data (see following sections).<br />

• Insert one coin in the coin validator.<br />

The coin validator compares the values of a coin with the stored limiting<br />

values of each channel. The coin will only be accepted in this channel if the<br />

measured values are within these limits.<br />

On the table screen, the channels involved will be displayed in colour on<br />

the right next to the coin channel numbers:<br />

red – the channel has not accepted the coin, it has been programmed<br />

for a different type of coin.<br />

yellow – the channel has accepted the coin but the values are very close<br />

to the limiting values within the band; the channel may have to be<br />

re-adjusted.<br />

green – the channel has accepted the coin, the measured values are<br />

obviously within the acceptance band.<br />

Three grey fields behind a channel number means that the associated<br />

coin channel has not been programmed and therefore no coin value<br />

has been allocated to it.<br />

14


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Program channel specific data<br />

(Table screen)<br />

Using the table screen (see page 13) and the instructions in the following<br />

sections below, you can program channel superordinate data (left hand<br />

side of the screen) such as e.g. the smallest coin value or the acceptance<br />

limit and also allocate specific functions to individual channels (right hand<br />

side of the screen).<br />

Determine smallest coin value and decimal point position<br />

(only G-18 battery)<br />

All coins accepted by the coin validator with their coin value must be divisible<br />

by the smallest coin value. The left column of the table screen (see<br />

page 13) shows the smallest coin value coin offset.<br />

If you wish to change this value, call up a pull down menu using the<br />

arrow interface of the mouse or the white input field. The pull down<br />

menu shows the possible coin values and you can select the value<br />

required.<br />

When leaving this screen, you will be asked whether the data entered<br />

is to be saved in the device. By clicking on the button YES the new<br />

values would be saved in the coin validator.<br />

Your selection also determines the position of the decimal point on the<br />

vending machine display.<br />

Determine critical coin (only G-18 battery)<br />

The critical coin is that coin type for which false coins are most frequently<br />

used during the sales process. To exclude the use of false coins as much<br />

as possible, <strong>WinEMP</strong> can be used to specify the maximum number of<br />

critical coins which are to be accepted during one sales process. To do<br />

this specify the coin type which is to be regarded as the critical coin type<br />

and also specify the difference in the product price set in the coin validator<br />

minus the maximum number of critical coins inserted (see following<br />

section).<br />

15


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

The left column of the table screen (see page 13) shows the critical coin<br />

Limited coin. The factor with which the smallest coin value is multiplied<br />

in order to find the value of the critical coin, is changed.<br />

If you wish to change the factor to find the critical value, please use<br />

your mouse to mark the current factor shown in the white input field and<br />

then enter a new factor value using the keyboard.<br />

When leaving this screen, you will be asked whether the data entered<br />

is to be saved in the device. By clicking on the button YES the new<br />

values would be saved in the coin validator.<br />

Determine the difference to the set price (only G-18 battery)<br />

The value to be added is the difference between the product price set in<br />

the coin validator minus the maximum number of critical coins inserted<br />

(see previous section).<br />

Example<br />

(The product price is 3 €)<br />

Smallest coin: 00.50 (smallest coin accepted by the vending machine)<br />

Critical coin 1 (1 x 00.50 = 0.5 €)<br />

Addable value: 1 (3 € – 2 € = 1 €)<br />

With this setting, the vending machine will only accept four 50 cent coins for every<br />

sales process!<br />

The left hand column of the table screen (see page 13) shows the addable<br />

value Difference (difference to the price).<br />

If you wish to change this value, please use your mouse to mark the<br />

current value shown in the white input field and then enter a new value<br />

using the keyboard.<br />

When leaving this screen, you will be asked whether the data entered<br />

is to be saved in the device. By clicking on the button YES the new<br />

values would be saved in the coin validator.<br />

16


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Program channel specific data (Table screen)<br />

The two following sections describe how to assign a number of functions<br />

to a coin channel.<br />

To do this access the table screen (see page 13) as described in the<br />

section ”Compare coin values with stored channel values”.<br />

Assign a coin type to a coin channel (only G-18 battery)<br />

To improve the rejection of false coins, up to three coin channels have<br />

been allocated the same coin value.<br />

• Normal channel (low channel number) with wide acceptance band for<br />

the highest possible ascceptance of valid coins<br />

• If necessary narrow channel (higher/highest channel number) with<br />

narrower acceptance band for optimal rejection of false coins<br />

• If necessary very narrow channel (highest channel number) with greatly<br />

narrowed down acceptance band for highest rejection of false coins but<br />

with still acceptable acceptance of valid coins<br />

Most coin types are allocated two channels – one normal and one narrow<br />

channel. The label for the coin validator shows which coin type has been<br />

programmed for which coin channel (see appropriate instructions for the coin<br />

validator).<br />

If you wish to allocate a specific coin value to a coin channel, in the table<br />

screen (see page 13), in the right column under the heading Value call up<br />

a pull down menu showing the possible factors using the mouse by<br />

clicking on the arrow button or the white input field and select the required<br />

factor with which the smallest coin value is to be multiplied.<br />

If the smallest coin value is e.g. 5 p, the factor 40 would have to be<br />

selected for the allocation of 2 £.<br />

When leaving this screen, you will be asked whether the data entered<br />

is to be saved in the device. By clicking on the button YES the new<br />

values would be saved in the coin validator.<br />

17


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Allocate a coin signal line to a coin channel<br />

With the help of <strong>WinEMP</strong> you can specify which coin channel is to pass<br />

via which coin signal line of the connecting cable from the coin validator to<br />

the vending machine (for the function of this allocation please refer to the<br />

appropriate instructions for the coin validator).<br />

To select the coin signal line please proceed as described below starting<br />

at the table screen (see page 13):<br />

• on the table screen under the heading Coin outputs 1-6 tick the<br />

required coin signal line (output) with the mouse by clicking the box in<br />

the line of the respective coin channel and if necessary<br />

• remove the tick under another output by clicking the box.<br />

When leaving this screen, you will be asked whether the data entered<br />

is to be saved in the device. By clicking on the button YES the new<br />

values would be saved in the coin validator.<br />

Assign the coin impulse number to a coin channel<br />

(only G-18.mft)<br />

Every coin inserted into the coin validator passes on an impulse to the<br />

vending machine control via the appropriate coin signal line. An impulse<br />

tells the vending machine control that a coin has been inserted. On<br />

principle, 1–4 impulses per coin can be assigned to the coin channel<br />

allocated to a coin (see label of the coin validator). However, it only makes<br />

sense to assign more than 1 if the vending machine control does not have<br />

sufficient coin signal lines and in the case of the introduction of new coins<br />

(e.g. Euro coins) the greater value of these coins has to be simulated for<br />

the vending machine control by a number of coin impulses, i.e. when e.g. a<br />

2 £ coin is inserted, four coin impulses would be passed onto the vending<br />

machine control via the coin signal line allocated to the 50 p coin. The<br />

factory setting for each coin channel is 1 impulse.<br />

If you wish to allocate a different impulse number to a coin channel, you<br />

must call up a pull down menu with the possible coin impulse number 1–4<br />

and select the required number by calling up the table screen (see<br />

page 13) and then clicking the mouse in the right column under the<br />

heading Pulses in the row of the respective channel using the arrow<br />

button or the white input field.<br />

When leaving this screen, you will be asked whether the data entered<br />

is to be saved in the device. By clicking on the button YES the new<br />

values would be saved in the coin validator.<br />

18


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Assign an individual coin inhibit line to a coin channel<br />

(only G-18.3000)<br />

As an alternative to the individual coin inhibit using DIL switches (see<br />

separate instructions for the coin validator), with the help of <strong>WinEMP</strong>, up<br />

to six channels allocated to one coin type (see label of the coin validator)<br />

can be individually inhibited via six individual coin inhibit lines of the inhibit<br />

table.<br />

National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Adjust coin acceptance band<br />

<strong>WinEMP</strong> enables you to adjust the acceptance band of the individual<br />

channels after real and corresponding false coins have been inserted in<br />

order to optimize the relationship between relatively high acceptance of<br />

real coins and rejection of false coins. These settings are made in the real<br />

coin and false coin adjustment screen (for the meaning and function of the<br />

acceptance band see section ”Compare coin values with stored channel<br />

values” in this chapter):<br />

• On the diagnostics screen in the sub-menu<br />

SETTINGS select the menu item ADJUSTMENT.<br />

The screen message Please insert 20<br />

genuine coins (1 denomination) is<br />

displayed.<br />

Return to the diagnostics screen via ABORT, if you do not wish to make<br />

any adjustments or check any values.<br />

• Insert 20 real coins of one coin denomination into the coin validator<br />

(representative selection, not only old or only new coins). For validation<br />

purposes, the screen display indicates the coins inserted and counts<br />

down from 20 to 0. After the 20 th coin has been inserted the real coin<br />

adjustment screen is displayed.<br />

21


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

The software has compared the values of the inserted coins with the<br />

saved values of the acceptance bands and determined what percentage of<br />

the inserted coins are accepted in the respective channels.<br />

On the real coin adjustment screen, under the heading<br />

Rate %, the appropriate percentage (0-100%) is displayed<br />

behind the coin channels.<br />

As from a technical point of view it only makes sense to adjust<br />

coin channels with a percentage of at least 80%, the<br />

acceptance bands of the channels with lower values are<br />

displayed, but they cannot be corrected. These coin channels<br />

must be ”taught” again (please refer to the section ”Teach<br />

coin channels” in this chapter). Channels with percentages of<br />

80% and above can be adjusted as follows:<br />

At this point the coin acceptance to improve the<br />

rejection of false coins cannot be reduced as no false<br />

coins have been inserted yet and hence the coin validator has not been<br />

able to take into consideration any false coin values (see below).<br />

• Click on the sliding bar of the channel to be altered.<br />

A window with another sliding bar is opened<br />

which in this phase is to be moved as far<br />

right as possible (greater real coin<br />

acceptance) using the mouse. The right<br />

hand side of the window displays the<br />

adjusted percentage value under Genuine %.<br />

Percentage values recommended by <strong>NRI</strong>:<br />

normal coin channel 100%<br />

narrow coin channel 95%<br />

very narrow coin channel 90%<br />

• Accept changes by clicking the mouse on the OK button or<br />

click on ABORT to abort the process. The window is closed.<br />

The possibly changed value is displayed on the real coin<br />

adjustment screen.<br />

If necessary, repeat the processes described in this<br />

section for all coin channels assigned to one type of coin<br />

using as many real coins of this type as possible.<br />

When leaving this screen, you will be asked whether this data and the<br />

data set in the following is to be saved in the device. By clicking on<br />

the button YES the new values would be saved in the coin validator.<br />

22


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

In the next step, the values of the false coins assigned to the appropriate<br />

coin type are to be taken into consideration:<br />

• On the real coin adjustment screen (see<br />

page 22) select the menu item FALSE COINS.<br />

The screen message Please insert<br />

false coins (0 inserted) is displayed.<br />

Return without coin insertion to the real coin adjustment screen via<br />

OK, if you do not wish to make any adjustments or check any values.<br />

• Insert approximately 10 false coins of the appropriate coin type into the<br />

coin validator (if you do not have sufficient false coins, the same coin<br />

can also be inserted a number of times. (Inserting the coin the wrong<br />

way round in order to simulate a number of coins, generates different<br />

values). For validation purposes, the screen display indicates the coins<br />

inserted and counts upwards from 0.<br />

• Click on OK using the mouse. The false coin adjustment screen is<br />

displayed.<br />

After inserting the 20 th coin, the false coin adjustment screen is<br />

displayed automatically without clicking on OK.<br />

The layout of the false coin adjustment screen is identical to the real<br />

coin adjustment screen (see page 22).<br />

To set the optimum relationship between real coin acceptance and<br />

rejection of false coins, you must proceed as follows:<br />

• Click on the sliding bar of the channel to be altered.<br />

Another window with a sliding bar is opened<br />

which, after a short while, displays the real<br />

coin and false coin acceptance for the<br />

previously adjusted acceptance band in<br />

percent (Genuine %/False %). The slider<br />

should be moved to a position using the mouse which permits a high rejection of<br />

false coins with an acceptable real coin acceptance. The changes to the settings<br />

are displayed on the right hand side of the window (Genuine %/False %).<br />

• Accept changes by clicking the mouse on the OK button or click on<br />

ABORT to abort the process. The window is closed. The possibly<br />

changed value is displayed on the false coin adjustment screen.<br />

If necessary repeat the above process for all available false coins of the<br />

same coin type and the appropriate assigned coin channels.<br />

23


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Teach coin channels<br />

If you wish to allocate a new coin type or token to a coin channel, you do<br />

this using the real coin or false coin adjustment screen:<br />

• On the diagnostics screen in the sub-menu<br />

SETTINGS select the menu item ADJUSTMENT.<br />

The screen message Please insert 20<br />

genuine coins (1 denomination) is<br />

displayed.<br />

• Insert 20 coins of the new coin type into the coin validator.<br />

For validation purposes, the screen display indicates the coins inserted<br />

and counts down from 20 to 0. After the 20th coin has been inserted, the<br />

real coin adjustment screen is displayed (see page 22).<br />

If at least one coin channel is found to which the coin type inserted<br />

has been allocated (percentage under Rate %), no additional coin<br />

channel can be taught. The channel assigned to that coin type must<br />

be adjusted (see section ”Adjust coin acceptance band” in this<br />

chapter).<br />

The coin validator has saved the values of the inserted coins.<br />

• Click on the sliding bar of the coin channel to which the coin type is to<br />

be assigned.<br />

The saved values are assigned to the appropriate coin channel with<br />

100%.<br />

If the acceptance band of the coin channel is to be adjusted and the<br />

relationship between a high real coin acceptance and rejection of false<br />

coins is to be optimized, please follow the procedure from step 3 onwards<br />

in the section ”Adjust coin acceptance band” in this chapter.<br />

National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Undo entry<br />

Using the menu item RESTORE the <strong>WinEMP</strong> software enables program<br />

changes made to the coin validator to be reversed i.e. the coin validation<br />

data can be reset to any setting.<br />

To do this, the settings of the coin validator must always be made<br />

using the same PC as the back-up files have been saved on the<br />

computer’s hard disc and are also retrieved from the hard disc.<br />

When the software <strong>WinEMP</strong> recognizes the coin validator and when the<br />

data is saved in the coin validator after a security query has been made, it<br />

creates a backup file in the archive folder.<br />

If you wish to reverse the settings you have made, please proceed as<br />

follows:<br />

• On the diagnostics screen (see page 10) select the<br />

menu item RESTORE.<br />

The dialog window<br />

Loading backup<br />

data is displayed.<br />

This dialog window<br />

lists all backup files<br />

with settings for the<br />

connected coin<br />

validator saved on the<br />

hard disc of your PC<br />

and they can be<br />

identified above all by<br />

the first and last<br />

column:<br />

• Date and time of adjustment<br />

• Device type<br />

• Device number<br />

• Serial number<br />

• File name<br />

25


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

To reset the coin validator data to a specific stand of settings<br />

• highlight the appropriate file using the mouse.<br />

• Confirm this selection by clicking on OK.<br />

Whilst the data is being reset the message Please wait is displayed<br />

and then the diagnostics screen is displayed again. The data has now<br />

been reset to the required previous status.<br />

As the backup files which have been saved at a later date are not<br />

deleted if the coin validator data is reset, this information is also still<br />

available.<br />

Convert coin validator to Euro<br />

With the help of <strong>WinEMP</strong> the connected coin validator can easily and<br />

quickly be converted to accept Euro coins.<br />

Depending on the device type, the conversion to Euro coins can be<br />

undertaken in two different ways. The reference data required to generate<br />

the acceptance bands for Euro coins are included in the device memory of<br />

the new coin validator G-18.mft. All other older coin validators do not<br />

contain this reference data in their memory. For these devices, the<br />

reference data must be generated by inserting so-called calibration discs<br />

in the coin validator before the Euro conversion can take place.<br />

Calibration discs are specific, measured discs, the insertion of which into<br />

the coin validator generates reference values which are used to calculate<br />

acceptance bands for the Euro coins. They have been put together into a<br />

set of four different discs. After using a calibration set 300 times, the discs<br />

would generate false reference data due to the wear on the calibration<br />

discs. For this reason <strong>WinEMP</strong> registers every time the discs are used<br />

and requests the user to measure the calibration set again in order to be<br />

able to compensate for wear as and when required.<br />

A calibration set with a specific number must be allocated to a<br />

specific PC workplace due to the calibration set registration and<br />

may not be used on any other PC.<br />

To measure the calibration discs, a reference device<br />

programmed for Euro must only be used for the measurement of<br />

the calibration set for each coin validator series and also be<br />

assigned to a specific PC workplace. It may not be used with<br />

any other PC. If this is not complied with, the quality of the<br />

programming will suffer.<br />

26


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Measure calibration set (not for G-18.mft)<br />

After using a calibration set 300 times to convert coin validators to Euro,<br />

the individual discs would generate incorrect reference values due to wear<br />

on the discs (please also refer to the section ”Convert coin validator to<br />

Euro” in this chapter). For this reason <strong>WinEMP</strong> registers every time the set<br />

is used and before the 301 st conversion to Euro is to take place after the<br />

last time the set was measured, it requests the user to measure the<br />

calibration set during which the calibration values are adapted to their<br />

original data. For the wear to be measured, the calibration set must be<br />

measured before the first time it is used for Euro conversion purposes in<br />

order to have some reference data.<br />

To measure the calibration discs, a reference device<br />

programmed to Euro must be available only for calibration<br />

measurements for every coin validator series and also be<br />

allocated to a specific PC workplace. It may not be used with<br />

any other PC. If this is not complied with, the quality of the<br />

programming will suffer.<br />

To measure the calibration set, please follow the following procedure:<br />

• On the diagnostics screen (see page 10), select the menu item<br />

CALIBRATION COINS in the sub-menu WINEURO and then<br />

select MEASURE.<br />

First the security query Reference validator<br />

connected? is displayed.<br />

• If the reference validator to be used exclusively for<br />

measuring the calibration set has been connected,<br />

please confirm this query with YES.<br />

The dialog window Calibration<br />

coins is displayed.<br />

• Use the mouse to highlight the current<br />

calibration set in the white entry field<br />

and enter the new number with the<br />

keyboard.<br />

• Confirm entry with OK.<br />

If you have connected a reference device that<br />

has not been programmed for Euro, the error<br />

message Wrong validator (Serial<br />

No.) is displayed. Acknowledge the message<br />

with OK and measure the calibration set with a<br />

reference validator which has been programmed for Euro.<br />

27


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

The dialog window Calibration<br />

coins is displayed with the request<br />

to insert the different calibration discs<br />

listed into the coin validator. The two<br />

right hand columns display how many<br />

calibration discs have to be inserted<br />

and how many of each sort have<br />

already been inserted.<br />

• Insert the appropriate number of<br />

each calibration disc.<br />

So that the sticker on the calibration discs does not falsify the values,<br />

the calibration discs must be inserted with the sticker facing forwards<br />

and not faster than at a rate of one disc per second.<br />

The calibration set has been measured and the calibration discs provide<br />

the required reference values.<br />

Now measure the corresponding<br />

calibration set for all the other reference<br />

devices. The following message is<br />

displayed Please repeat for<br />

other reference validators.<br />

As the Euro conversion is performed in a different way for the older and<br />

newer coin validators, the procedure for Euro conversion has been<br />

described in two separate chapters.<br />

28


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

Euro conversion (not for G-18.mft)<br />

As <strong>WinEMP</strong> cannot compare the default values on the label with<br />

the programming of the connected coin validator, the user must<br />

ensure that the default values on the label have been<br />

programmed before the coin validator is converted to Euro. If<br />

this is not the case, the Euro conversion will not be correct.<br />

• Solder capacitor into the coin validator (only G-18.28 and G-18.29) (see<br />

appended Technical Informations G-18.2800 and G18.2900 „Hardware<br />

adaptation within the scope of adapting the devices to the Euro).<br />

The capacitor must be soldered into the coin validator in<br />

accordance with the technical instructions otherwise the<br />

measurements of the calibration coins are incorrect.<br />

If a coin validator of the G-18.2800 and G-18.2900 series that has<br />

already been adapted for Euro has to be reset to the national<br />

currency using the backup files, please ensure that the coin<br />

validator is also returned to its old hardware state for national<br />

currency in accordance with the technical instructions (remove<br />

capacitor) (see section „Undo entry“ in this chapter).<br />

• In the diagnostics screen, from the sub-menu WINEURO select the menu<br />

item DATA BLOCK UPDATE.<br />

The dialog window Euro data blocks opens.<br />

During the first Euro or block conversion, the message stating that the<br />

calibration set must be measured is displayed. If the calibration set<br />

has not been measured yet, this must be done now so that reference<br />

data is available for the evaluation of wear of the discs (see section<br />

”Measure calibration set” in this chapter).<br />

• Find the actual data block DBL-Act on<br />

the label of the coin validator (please<br />

refer to the appropriate instructions for<br />

the coin validator) and enter it using the<br />

keyboard (if necessary highlight the<br />

actual set in the white entry field using<br />

the mouse and overwrite).<br />

• Enter the same data block number (DBL-New = DBL-Act) behind DBL-New<br />

(if necessary highlight current set in the white entry field using the mouse and<br />

overwrite).<br />

To enter deviating actual and new data blocks for other configurations,<br />

select the appropriate data block numbers from the appended table<br />

”Reference list for data block selection”.<br />

29


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

• If necessary highlight the current calibration set number in the white<br />

entry field using the mouse and enter the new number using the<br />

keyboard.<br />

The calibration set number must only be entered for the first Euro or<br />

block conversion, afterwards the number has been saved for all<br />

further applications. This calibration set number is specific to one PC<br />

workplace.<br />

Behind the entry field for the calibration set number, the software indicates<br />

how often the calibration set has already been used.<br />

After having been used 300 times, the calibration set would falsify the<br />

reference values required for the Euro conversion due to wear and so<br />

they must be measured again. (see section ”Measure calibration set”<br />

in this chapter).<br />

• Confirm entry with OK.<br />

The dialog window Calibration<br />

National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude OPERATION<br />

After the Euro conversion ...<br />

After you have converted the coin validator to Euro we recommend that the<br />

values transferred to the device are checked.<br />

If your device is equipped with two data blocks, the coin validator must<br />

first be switched to the appropriate data block using the DIL switch<br />

(see appropriate instructions for the coin validator).<br />

If you only wish to check whether the Euro coins have been<br />

assigned to the correct coin channels, it is sufficient to compare<br />

the channel values saved and the coin measurements using the<br />

colour display on the table screen (see section ”Compare coin<br />

values with stored channel values” in this chapter).<br />

If you wish to determine how many percent<br />

of the coins of the new coin type you have<br />

inserted are accepted by the assigned<br />

channel and wish to possibly adjust this<br />

value, please proceed as described in the<br />

National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude GLOSSARY<br />

Glossary<br />

Acceptance band A range of acceptable values of a coin type defined<br />

by an upper and lower value and with specific →<br />

coin properties.<br />

Acceptance gate The acceptance gate diverts the inserted coins into<br />

the acceptance or rejection area.<br />

Acceptance limit There is an upper and lower limiting value. They<br />

define the → acceptance band.<br />

Addable value Product price minus the maximum number of →<br />

critical coins inserted for one sales process.<br />

Backup data Using the menu item ”Restore”, backup data can<br />

be called up which can be used to reset the coin<br />

validator settings as required.<br />

Block The coin validator G-18.mft can manage two<br />

individual configurations for coin measurements<br />

using so-called blocks. Each of these blocks have<br />

12 individual coin channels assigned to them with<br />

the appropriate → tables.<br />

Channel → Coin channel<br />

Coin acceptance band → Acceptance band<br />

Coin acceptance limit → Acceptance limit<br />

Coin channel Coin channels are used to describe → coin types<br />

using their different → coin properties (alloy, size,<br />

etc.). The coin properties of a type of coin required<br />

are defined in → acceptance bands which in turn<br />

are collected together as a coin channel.<br />

Coin properties Coin features which are measured when a coin is<br />

inserted into the coin validator. These are material,<br />

thickness, volume, minting, diameter, mass,<br />

hardness etc.<br />

Coin signal line Electrical coin signal lines transmit the values of a<br />

→ coin type to the vending machine.<br />

38


National Rejectors, Inc. GmbH, Buxtehude GLOSSARY<br />

Coin type All those coins are summarized under one coin<br />

type which have the same → coin properties.<br />

Critical coin Type of coin the recognition of which could be<br />

difficult due to immense amounts of false coins.<br />

Inhibit line Signal line from vending machine control to coin<br />

validator which can block coin acceptance<br />

completely.<br />

Line → Coin signal line<br />

Reference data Data required to generate acceptance bands for<br />

Euro coins.<br />

To convert the coin validators (not G-18.mft) to<br />

Euro, the reference data must be generated by<br />

inserting calibration discs.<br />

Reference device A device of a series which is exclusively used to<br />

measure calibration sets and is programmed for<br />

Euro. Reference data used to measure the<br />

calibration sets is stored here.<br />

Return line When operating the return lever of the coin<br />

validator, a return signal is transmitted along the<br />

return signal line.<br />

String sensor The coin validator’s sensor recognizes a coin<br />

inserted with a piece of string attached to it.<br />

String signal The → string sensor recognizes a piece of string<br />

and transmits the string signal to the control unit.<br />

Switch block The switch block is located on the rear of the coin<br />

validator and incorporates a number of DIL<br />

switches. Every switch is allocated to a → coin<br />

channel, via which the individual → coin types can<br />

be blocked or a function allocated.<br />

Table Programming table to save information in the coin<br />

validator e.g. about which coin channels are<br />

allocated to the sorting chutes of the coin validator.<br />

Dear <strong>WinEMP</strong> user,<br />

<strong>WinEMP</strong><br />

Reference list for data block selection<br />

to download the reference data or calibration data, data must be entered in the screen at<br />

the appropriate points in the program. We have provided the necessary information<br />

below.<br />

Usually, after Euro conversion, a coin validator keeps its data block number (see last four<br />

digits of the model number). However, there are exceptions to this in some countries or<br />

for some device types. These exceptions are listed in the reference lists in the next few<br />

pages and are continuously updated. The latest stand will be provided by the <strong>NRI</strong><br />

homepage.<br />

Therefore please check first whether the EMP connected is included in one of the<br />

categories mentioned in these lists. If not, the rule DBL-Act = DBL-New applies and<br />

both input fields are given identical data block numbers as specified on the rating plate<br />

of the EMP. If yes, please enter the number specified in the right hand column<br />

dependent on the exact coin validator designation.<br />

We hope that you successfully program your coin validator.<br />

With best wishes<br />
