Coin Selector Setup Utility

 
General Description
Coin Selector Setup is a MS Windows application for configuration change of a Coin Selector and for coin signature update of the data it downloads to Xeptors. For example, if you have an X-20 Coin Selector with a button configured for downloading coin signature data for the Canadian $.25 coin and the Canadian Government decides to change the metal alloy content of that coin, then you will need to update the Coin Selector with that additional coin signature for valid Canadian $.25 coins. Or, you may decide that after using the Copy&Clone buttons to copy data from an Xeptor to the Coin Selector, you wish to disable the Copy function so that your employees cannot change the function of the buttons. Or, you may decide to change the definition of a button to make it more useful for your specific situation.

Who Is Authorized To Use Coin Selector Setup?
This utility and its database may be freely downloaded by anyone from this Web page. However, the application will not run until you enter an Authorization Code from IDX. When you first start the application it give you specific instructions for contacting IDX with specific information, and for negotiating payment of the $150 sales price. Upon approval of the information and payment method, IDX will provide you with an Authorization Code for enabling the application.

What Are The System Requirements For Operation?
If your computer runs any version of MS Windows, you should have no trouble running this application... famous last words. It doesn't take much memory, disk space, screen size or "Pentassium" to make it work... just a simple MS Windows computer that doesn't crash much will be fine. Note: If you have a newer budgetary computer without a real serial port, then you will have to get a USB to serial port adapter from a local electronics retailer... but they are not all made equally. For example, we know the Radio Shack adapter has worked on Win98 and WinME, but will give you the "blue screen of death" on WinXP. However, the Belkin F5U109 adaptor, available at Office Depot and other retailers, is rated to work with Win98 through WinXP and does so quite well.
