LOCKING DEVICES
The CONCORDE 2 Countertop model has two locking panels.
Panel 1 (the cash door) provides access to the coin slot and optional banknote validator,
and the cash box where coins and bills are secured. Panel 2 provides access to the game
boards and power supply - all connected to the main harness (wiring), and the touch screen
video monitor.
The CONCORDE 2 Upright model has two locking doors.
The main cash door provides access to the coin and bill validators.
Inside the cash door there is a secure metal compartment housing the CD-ROM player,
the computer electronics and the power supply.
For operator’s and player’s safety and protection from High Voltage all panels and
doors should be locked in order to operate this machine. For extra security, each door has
a separate lock and key. It is recommended that operators replace these standard locks.
CONCORDE 2

INSTALLATION
Unpack and install the CONCORDE 2 on a flat surface. The box and all packing materials
should be stored in case the machine needs to be returned to the factory at a later date.
Attach the power cord beside the on/off switch at the rear of the machine. Plug the
machine into a standard 110 or 220 Volt AC outlet depending on the electricity system in
your country.
The CONCORDE 2 must be grounded. Do not use a cheater plug.
While the CONCORDE 2 does have a built in surge protector, it is recommended that
an external surge suppresser also be used. When subject to lightning or other voltage surges,
the protector can fail, requiring replacement. It is much easier to replace an external surge
protector than the built in internal one. Suitable surge protectors are available at most
hardware and electrical supply stores.
POWERING UP
The CONCORDE 2 requires a few seconds to power up during which time the computer
carries out an extensive systems diagnostics check. If no problems are detected, the opening
screen will appear. If problems are detected please refer to the trouble-shooting guide.
While the CONCORDE 2 has been preset and is ready for play, it is recommended that
an operator run the initial tests, calibrate the touch screen, and test the coin acceptor and
banknote validator. (See sections “Test” and “Calibration” below.)
COMPACT DISC PLAYER
On the Countertop model the
Compact Disc player is located beneath
the monitor in the front of the machine. A
metal panel held in place with two screws
protects it from customer tampering.
On the Upright model the Compact
Disc player is located inside the secure
electronics compartment behind the cash
door. The cash door and the electronics
compartment require a separate key for
access.
The CONCORDE 2 ships with game disc installed.
Game CD upgrades are issued periodically. Contact your JVL distributor for pricing information.
BANKNOTE VALIDATOR
JVL’s optional CashCode® banknote validator comes
in a stacker design with a cassette storage capacity of 400
bills. The banknote validator will accept bills inserted in
any of the four directions and will operate if either of the
doors are open or a game is in progress. The unit includes dual magnetic and optical protection against counterfeit currency, and mechanical protection against fraud.
