Coin & Bill Sensors

  • Coin Sensor / Detector
  • Bill Sensor

  • The basic principle for coin detection is to test the physical properties of the coin against known characteristics of acceptable coins. The process involves examining the coin that has been inserted, and by using various tests, determining if the coin is counterfeit.

    Since the parameters are different for each coin, these detectors must be programmed for each item that they are to accept. The detector evaluates the coin based on its weight, size, and magnetism, and then sends an appropriate electrical signal via its output connection. The next step is generally performed by the coin changer.

    Today, sophisticated electronic coin acceptors are in use in some places that, in addition to validating weight and size, also scan the deposited coin using optics and match the image to a pre-defined list, or test the coin''s "metallic signature" based on its alloy composition.

    Apollo''s coin sensors are able to recognize the coins through "training", so they will support any new types of coins or tokens when properly introduced.

    Apollo''s coin sensors are used in many automated machines found in retail kiosks, self checkout machines, gaming machines, transportation parking machines, automatic fare collection machines, and vending machines. Since each sensor is custom made to customer''s specification, please contact us for more information.
