Return Lever
DESIGN
Board (PCB) edge connector (See Figure 3-2 [11])
which allows connection of the Coin Validator to a
programming PC and a JCM Test Station.
The Return Lever (See Figure 3-1 [1]) on the top
of the Coin Validator is operated by using the
Vending Machine’s Return Button. Operating this
lever is necessary if inserted coins are awaiting
return, or a coin jam caused by stuck coins require
removal. When the return lever is operated, the
measurement and validation area of the Coin Validator opens so that all objects within the Coin
Validator are directed to the return area tray
(See Figure 3-1 ).
Keyboard
The front of the Coin Validator is equipped with a
five key touch-sensitive membrane Keyboard
(See Figure 3-1 [4]) which allows filling of the
Payout Unit's change tubes before the device is put
into operation or emptying them for inventory (See
section 4 "Functions" and section 7 "Operation" for
further information).
Figure 3-2 Coin Validator’s Rear Side
Pilot Lights
DIP Switch Block
There is a Pilot Light set of three Light-Emitting
Diode (LED) at the front of the Coin Validator
positioned beneath one another colored; Green,
Yellow, and Red respectively (See Figure 3-1 [9]).
Individual settings for inhibiting various coin types
can be easily made by selecting the proper switches
on the 10-position DIP Switch Block located on the
rear PCB of the device (See Figure 3-2 (13) as
well as section 7 "Operation" for detailed user
information).
These LED Pilot Lights are mainly used for quick
fault diagnosis, but can also indicate the units
current status in normal operation conditions
(See Figure 3-1 ).
If the top Green LED lights or flashes, no faults are
indicated and the device is working properly. If the
middle Yellow LED flashes there is a definite general fault indicated that usually can be easily remedied.
If the bottom Red LED flashes, a fault that must be
remedied by a service technician is indicated. (also
see the section 14 "Trouble Shooting" appendix).
Interfaces
There is a 40-Pin Dual Inline Header interface jack
on the middle rear of the Coin Validator’s circuit
board (See Figure 3-2 [12]). This interface allows
the device to be connected to the Coin Changer
using a pre-assembled flat ribbon cable assembly.
On the top right front of the Coin Validator there is
an 8-pin RJ-45 receptacle jack (See Figure 3-1
[2]). This connector allows the Coin Changer to be
connected to a Palm Pilot® handheld device for

The Tube Cassette (See Figure 3-1 [6] and Figure
3-6 [1]) incorporates four change tubes with
different diameters for collecting four user coin
types, available for vending to a customer. A
sticker located at the top of the Tube Cassette identifies which tube accepts a particular denomination
coin value.
The tube coin storage capacity depends on the
thickness of each coin type (example: approximately 87 U.S. 25¢ coins can fill a tube), See Table
3-3 for a listing of the U.S. coin values and quantities allowed per tube.
The Front Product Label (See Figure 3-1 [5] and
Figure 3-5) contains similar information as the side
label with additional content regarding safety and
relative country’s coin age denomination requirements listed in Table 3-2.

DESIGN
Filling Level Sensors
If at any time another combination of tube coins is
required, the appropriate cassette can be ordered
from the JCM and simply exchanged in the
assembly (See Figure 3-6 [1]).
The capacity of each tube is monitored by four
independent sensors viewing the number of it’s
related coins:
• An empty sensor is positioned at the height of
8 to 10 collected coins
• A 50% sensor approximately half way up
• A 75% sensor near the top, and
• A full sensor is positioned at the top rim of
each tube.
In order for the tube counters to function without
fault when the change tubes are filled by inserting
coins through the Coin Changer, or when the tubes
are filled by removing the four Tube Cassette, the
filling level sensors must check the tube counter’s
status after every coin acceptance and coin vend.
If the number of coins does not correspond with the
measured tube capacity level, the tube count will
be corrected depending on the respective tubes
coin thickness.
Figure 3-6 Tube Cassette Removal/Replacement
If a tubes "full" sensor displays the message "tube
full", all further coins for this tube will be automatically directed to the Cash Box. Only when
coins have been vended again from this tube, will
more coins be allowed into the tube.
Payout Module
Vending change is done by two motors installed at
the bottom of the Payout Set (See Figure 3-1 [6]),
which rotate in order to vend the desired coins.
MDB Vending Machine Cable
The left side motor is responsible for vending the
left “Tube L (5)” and middle left “Tube ML (4)”
tube coins, and the right side motor is responsible
for vending the right “Tube R (2)” and middle right
“Tube MR (3)” tube coins.
5900335
© 2005 JCM-American Corporation
The MDB Interface Connecting Cable (See Figure
3-1 [10]) to the Vending Machine is installed at
the top left corner of Coin Changer. For details of
how to install the Coin Changer into a Vending
Machine, see section 5 "Installation".

Optipay™ CC
A-66 Coin Changer
Section 4
4 FUNCTIONS
This section describes the main functions of the
Optipay™ CC A-66 Coin Changer with particular
emphasis on:
• Filling and emptying the change tubes
• Considering the maximum number of coins
configured for the change tube
• Considering the configured security stock of
tube coins
• Inhibiting certain coin types
• Disabling the inventory keys
• Configuring tokens
• Sending the telephone/currency code to the
Vending Machine control
• Correcting the tube counter automatically
• Resetting the tube counter
• Considering the individual wake-up time
• Accepting and converting a second currency
coinage (optional)
• Minimizing string manipulation (optional)
Only these functions will be described in this
section. If adjustable functions require changing,
see section 7 "Operation" for direct Coin Changer
adjustments, and section 11 "Configuration" for
using the configuration tools to reset them.
Figure 4-1 Tube Cassette Removal
Coins can vend individually, (e.g. for test purposes), consecutively for inventory purposes, or
before device transportation.
If the tubes must always be filled or emptied to a
certain capacity by service personal, a “float level”
can be configured (see section 11 "Configuration").
This filling capacity is irrelevant for normal use
and only guarantees that a known number of coins
is present for accounting purposes. If the “float
level” function is activated, Cash Box coins will
not be accepted. Consequently, the Cash Box must
not be emptied prior to refilling the tubes because
the unaccepted coins will not be counted during a
refill.
Filling and Emptying Change Tubes
The simplest and quickest way to fill and empty the
tube cassette is to remove the cassette (See Figure
4-1 ). This allows for coin sorting or the removal of
several coins at once.
Configuring Change Tube Coin
Maximum
The Coin Changer can be configured so each
change tube will accept a fixed number of coins.
When this fixed number is reached in a tube, all
subsequent coins destined for this tube will be
automatically directed to the Cash Box. Only when
coins have been vended from this tube, will more
coins be allowed to enter it. (See section 11 "Configuration").
If the correct number of tube coins is required to
simplify coin management, the change tubes can
be filled by inserting individual coins into the Coin
Changer one at a time. The tube counters register
every coin inserted or paid out when activated by
the keyboard (see section 6 "Energizing" and
section 7 "Operation").
The tube cassette can also be both filled and emptied in this manor with the help of the PC software
or the Palm Pilot® handheld software (see section
11 "Configuration").
5900335 © 2005 JCM-American Corporation
If this function is unused, the full sensor located at
the top of the tube determines when the coins will
be directed into the Cash Box and no longer into
the coin tube, irrespective of the number of coins
inserted.

Security Stock Considerations
However, a wide acceptance band should only be
set if a limited number of the tokens are available
for generating the token’s value measurement, or if
the tokens show very large tolerance values. Otherwise, there is the danger that a large number of
false coins will be accepted.
If a security stock is configured for the individual
tubes, the Coin Changer will not vend a minimum
number of tube coins. The security stock can be set
between 1 and 9 coins. It should be set higher for
coins which have stacking and edge standing problems rather than those that lay flat, as these coin
types do not fall easily when they land on a stack
higher than the coin (see section 11 "Configuration").
Tokens can either be configured so the customer
gets his selected product free of charge (free vend
tokens), or configured to assign a certain set
denomination (value tokens). The Coin Changer
can either direct the accepted tokens to the cashbox or send them back to the customer in the return
tray.
The Coin Changer can also be configured in such a
way that the security stock can be paid out of the
Vending Machine, or the security stock can be
delivered to the Vending Machine, when the
machine polls the capacity level (see section 11
"Configuration").
Chapter 11 "Configuration" reveals which configuration tool can be used to configure tokens.
Sending the Telephone/Currency
Code to the Vending Machine
Controller
Inhibiting Certain Coin Types
If certain coin types are no longer being accepted
as Vending Machine payment (e.g. because too
many false coins of a particular type are in circulation), these coins types can either be inhibited
directly on the device by setting specific DIP
switches on the rear DIP Switch block (see Chapter
7 "Operation"), or by applying the PC software or
the Palm Pilot® handheld software instructions (see
section 11 "Configuration").
Depending on which state or country the machine
is installed, a telephoned currency code can be
remotely sent to the Vending Machine control and
set into the Coin Changer (e.g. for setting menu
and display text).
For more details on how to change the pre-programmed telephone/currency code, please see section 11 "Configuration".
Disabling the Inventory Keys
Tube Counter Automatic Correction
The inventory keys constitute a part of the Coin
Changer’s front Keyboard: (e.g., keys , ,
and ).
Usually after every coin acceptance and pay out,
the Coin Changer compares the tube counter
status and the sensor’s measured fill level, and, if
necessary, corrects the tube counter data.
These keys allow the vending of one, several or all
coins from the corresponding Left, Middle Left,
Middle Right and Right change tube. Should operation of these keys no longer be desired, they can
be inhibited, or configured in such a way that they
can be enabled by Vending Machine control (see
section 11 "Configuration").
If the Vending Machine control is unable to process
the automatic tube counter correction, the Coin
Changer can be set so that the tube count will not
be automatically corrected (see section 11 "Configuration").
In this case, the change tubes should be
filled by inserting the coins through the
Coin Changer and not by directly placing
the coins into the tube cassettes (see
section 6 "Energizing" or section 7
"Operation").
Configuring Tokens
The Coin Changer contains three coin channel
memory locations for configuring a maximum of
three different type tokens. Therefore, a new
token’s measured value can be directly assigned to
a coin channel on the Vending Machine by inserting the corresponding tokens into it. The acceptance band generated will then accept these tokens
for payment within the Vending Machine.
Resetting the Tube Counter
After the change tubes have being emptied following repairs with tube counter correction switched
OFF, the Coin Changer’s tube counters should be
reset for start up. This is so the tube counter will
begin to count from zero again when the tubes are
In addition, you can choose between a normal and
wide acceptance band for the configured tokens.

by the main currency counter. Chapter 11 "Configuration" describes which configuration tool is used
to program a second currency.
Individual Wake-up Time Considerations
Minimizing String Manipulation
(optional)
For battery operated Coin Changers with an external wake-up line, a specific time period can be set
that specifies how long the Coin Changer remains
ON after the last Vending Machine poll (wake-up
time) (see section 11 "Configuration").
The Coin Changer can be optionally equipped with
a String Sensor. This device recognizes coins
inserted into the device connected to a string and
inhibits this type of coin from being accepted. By
recognizing this security condition these coin types
will not generate a credit value.
The sensitivity of the String Sensor can be individually set for each unit (see section 11 "Configuration").
When the wake-up time has elapsed, the Coin
Changer automatically switches itself OFF and
must be re-initialized again by the Vending
Machine control system activating the external
wake-up line.
Following a string manipulation attempt it is possible to reject the next 100 tube coins inserted by
directing them to the Cash Box instead of into the
coin tubes. Coins directed to the Cash Box are less
prone to manipulation, so further attempts at string
manipulation will obviously fail (see section 11
"Configuration").
Accepting and Converting a Second Currency Type (optional)
If the Coin Changer needs to accept two currency
types, the second currency value can be converted
to the main currency value using a set rate.
The second currency value is rounded up or down
respectively in such a way that it can be managed

11 CONFIGURATION
– Tester G-19.0641or G55.0338 for checking
the power supply.
This section explains how to configure the Optipay™ CC A-66 Coin Changer for use.
If the vending unit does not require
testing, it is unnecessary to dismantle the
entire Coin Changer. In this case it is just
sufficient to remove the Coin Validator
from the Coin Changer in order to
configure or test it.
In order to test the A-66 Coin Changer, react
quickly to new false coin occurrences, and make
individual adjustments in the workshop or on site,
three different service tools are available to facilitate these Coin Changer requirements.
This section includes:
• A presentation of the individual service tools
required depending on where the Coin
Validator is to be tested or configured
• Lists of the functions which can be set with
each service tool
• Lists of the equipment required for testing or
configuration using the respective tool
• Brief descriptions detailing how to connect the
various service tools to the Coin Changer
Workshop Testing the Coin
Changer
If Coin Changer functionality needs to be checked
without making any adjustments, the JCM Test
Station is sufficient for this purpose. The Test Station is composed of the following two components:
• Test Software WinMDB© and
• Tester G-19.0654 for Vending Machine
Workshop Testing and/or Configuring the Coin Changer
• A Palm Pilot® Handheld with PalmEMP© and
If the Coin Changer requires testing and configuration in the workshop, the following three JCM configuration solutions are available:
PalmA66© software installed
PC Programming Station and Palm
Pilot® Handheld Use
There are separate operating instructions available
for the PC base station using WinEMP© software
and the Palm Pilot® using PalmA66© and
PalmEMP© handheld software. This software contains all necessary detailed steps for configuring
the Coin Changer from installation, to its initial
connection and operation. This user manual only
provides a general overview relative to these
instructions.
• A PC programming station consisting of:
– WinEMP© configuration and diagnostics
software, including a card reader and a chip
card
– Tester G-19.0641 for checking the power
supply
• A Palm Pilot® handheld containing:
– PalmEMP© and/or PalmA66© software
installed

Machine
If the Coin Changer must be tested or configured in
a Vending Machine on site, the following mobile
JCM configuration tools are available:
simulation and MDB functions testing
5900335
If it is difficult to connect the G-19.0641
tester to the 5-pin PCB Edge Connector
Plug located behind the Coin Changer
housing, and it is more desirable to
connect the G-55.0338 tester by means of
the MDB connecting cable, an additional
8-pin RJ-45 PC-Adaptor (plug and cable
G 55.0348) can be obtained from JCM for
this purpose. This will allow the Coin
Changer to connect directly to a PC using
the easily accessible 8-pin RJ-45 jack on
the top right corner of the device. This will
also allow testing of all Coin Changer
functions and not just the MDB functions
available through the 5-pin pcb edge
connector plug.

The WinEMP© software or PalmA66© and
PalmEMP© software is used to diagnose and configure JCM Coin Validators as well as update the
data block in the device memory (data block download). All three programs identify the connected
Coin Validator and the device’s own data, and
present them on the video screen of your PC or on
the Palm Pilot® handheld’s display.
Which Functions Can be Configured?
All available functions of the Coin Changer can be
set with the PC programming station using the
WinEMP© PC based software, whereas, by using
either of the Palm Pilot® handheld programs, only
some of the functions can be set. However, both of
the Palm Pilot® programs together allow the same
configuration possibilities as using the WinEMP©

Appendix A
A TROUBLE SHOOTING
If the Green LED at the top of the Coin Validator is
lit or is flashing, no faults are indicated and the
device is working properly (See Figure A-1).
If a Coin Changer fault occurs, the pilot lights at
the top of the Coin Validator will indicate the
fault’s location.
If the Yellow LED in the middle of the Coin
Validator flashes there is a definite fault which
generally can be easily remedied.
The following JCM diagnostic service tools are
available to detail diagnose the fault’s cause (see
the "Diagnosis Using the Setting Module" area in
this appendix, as well as the in related information
located in sections 1 and 11 of this manual).
If the Red LED at the bottom of the Coin Validator
flashes, a fault that must be remedied by a service
technician is probable.
The label at the top of the Coin Validator may help
in locating the fault and Table A-1 lists their
meanings.
