Once the coin mechanism is installed, check that there
is a small gap (2 mm) between the return lever on the
vending machine and the Acceptor Gate lever on the coin
mechanism.
The operating voltage of a MEI Conlux coin mechanism is
stated on the label of each product. The label is located
on the left side of the coin mechanism.
•Lift up on the White lever on the top left side of the coin
mechanism and tilt the Discriminator assembly forward.

Confirm that when you press the coin return lever on the
machine door, it fully depresses the acceptor gate lever on
the coin mechanism, then lets it return smoothly without
holding the gate open.

DIP SWITCHES
Check the alignment of the coin input chute and cashbox
chute. Insert some coins to check that they enter the coin
mechanism properly and exit into the return cup. Ensure
that the coin chute does not rest on or open the acceptor
gate.
Most machines allow you to adjust the return lever, coin
chute, and the return cup to align with the coin mechanism.
Align, adjust, and test as necessary to ensure coins are
properly routed before continuing with these instructions.
CONNECTION
If the vending machine has a bill validator, connect the
MDB harness coming from the coin mechanism to the bill
validator’s “Y” connector. If there is no bill validator, connect
the coin mechanism harness to the harness coming from
the vending machine control board.
Tuck any excess length of harnessing inside the machine.
Make sure no harness is pinched or trapped when the coin
return lever is pressed or when the vending machine door
in closed.
COIN CASSETTE
The coin mechanism can be ordered with one of two
cassette configurations for both the USA and Canada.
The USA and CANADA use the same cassettes.
• Remove cassette by using your thumb to depress the
white latch and tilt the cassette forwards and lift upwards
as shown.
A B C D E
Front
The cassette type will be recognized automatically by the
coin mechanism.
LOADING THE COIN CASSETTE
You can load the coin cassette using either of these two
techniques:
Loading by Removing Cassette
1. Remove the cassette. Place it front down on a firm
surface. Open the back by pinching the two tabs together
and levering it open on the hinge. Fig 1.
2. It is recommended that you fill each tube (nickel, dime,
quarter, and dollar) if available with at least 15 coins. Each
tube will hold 2 rolls of coins.
Note: Insure that coins are inserted into the proper tubes.
Do not fill above the MAX FILL line. Fig. 2
LOADING THE COIN CASSETTE
Loading from the Front
1. Press down on the white Cassette Latch in front and tilt
the top of the cassette out until you can lift the cassette
from the coin changer. Stand the cassette on a firm
surface.
2. From the front, manually load the coins into tubes A, B,
C, D, and E.
Now you may switch ON the power to the vending
machine.

TOKEN TEACH
The Conlux MCM5 will accept tokens when the Token
DIP Switch is placed in the ON position. The Token teach
mode is entered by pressing the Mode and B button
simultaneously for longer than 2 seconds. When this mode
is entered, the C/C LED will flash rapidly. The user should
then drop 10 tokens with at least 1 second intervals
between tokens.
The mode will automatically end after the 10th token
is dropped. If successful, the C/C LED will illuminate
continuously.
