Mfg Name: MEI

Item number 42-3391-00 is not available for sale.

  • This interface cable (approx. 30" in length) converts the bill validator input and output signals to RS232 levels.  
  • The bill validator connector plugs into the vacant 18 pin location on the AE26XX-XXE Bill Validators; the opposite end terminated in a standard PC serial connector (9 pin D-SUB connector).  
  • This cable is for use with manufacturers that want to interface an AE2600 bill validator to a PC application via a standard serial port.  
  • Because the cable works in conjunction with the MEI Extended Bi-Directional Serial (EBDS) software protocol, it applies only to AE2600 and 2800 units with "E" Power cable model numbers.  
  • Manufacturers still need to provide power to the bill validator via this power cable; the RS232 cable is for interface communications only .  
  • Also, option switch 8 on the AE2600 unit must remain in the default, "Gaming" position for the unit to work within the new interface cable.  
  • To accomplish the complete PC interface integration, manufacturers must develop application software to support MEI EBDS protocol across this RS232 option cable .  
  • Manufacturers can obtain the Series 2000 Interface Manual (that documents EDBS protocol) and a PC based demo test program by calling MEI Technical Support at 800-345-8172
