Connect a Coin Acceptor to Your Propeller Project

A coin acceptor.

Want to make an arcade game or vending machine?  Maybe you want to charge customers to use your awesome invention - but how?  Look no further! Coin acceptors have become inexpensive enough for anyone to purchase, so this tutorial is designed to show you how to connect one to your Propeller-powered BlocklyProp project.


Hardware Required

NOTE: The 12V supply can be connected to the (→5-9VIN pin) on the FLiP - however be aware that because the input voltage is above 9 volts, if the FLiP module’s power connections are shorted, the FLiP will get VERY HOT.
