Thickness & Diameter Adjustment
For The
X-10 X-Mark Xeptor
 

Introduction ( AND why THIS is important) 
The X-10 Xeptor significantly raises the ability to measure and discriminate between coins through precision optical diameter measurement sensors, edge and center of coin metal alloy measurement, and X-Mark optical sensors to read minted-in codes on the surface of the coin. To benefit from these new measurement capabilities we must also do a little better in coin position control than formerly required when only metal alloy was being measured. One cannot expect imprecise coin position control to allow precise and repeatable measurement of the coin properties any more than one could expect an accurate measurement of the length of a fish if you won't put the ruler up against the fish.

Thickness Setup
Figure 1 of the X-10 Xeptor is a side view showing a series of eight holes and a sliding adjustment with a detent that centers itself over one of the selected holes. The dimensions referring to each of the eight holes is the chute thickness achieved at each position of the sliding adjustment. A good rule of thumb would be to set the adjustment for .010" to .020" more than the thickest coin in the intended coin set.

Diameter Setup  ( See X-10 "No Code" special information below.)
To control coin centering over the optical and inductive sensors, install the appropriate pair of clip-on coin chute edge guides as shown. The resultant coin chute width should be no more that about .060" wider than the coin if it has X-Mark codes. Without X-Mark codes, it may be as much as .23" wider. A single drop of silicone adhesive is recommended on each to ensure they are not accidentally knocked out.

X-10 "No Code" Versions: N1, N2, N3
The X-10 No Code units are produced without X-Mark code reading optics, but instead have additional diameter sensing optics that allow a wider range of coin diameters to be read with a given set of spacers. This is particularly helpful if you wish to accept more than one denomination of coin and the largest and smallest of them are considerably different in size. The X-10 units with X-Mark code reading optics require the coin to be quite well centered in order to properly read the code. However, without the need for code reading optics we are able to get a bit more latitude on the range of diameters.

The N1, N2, and N3 configurations each have a different range of diameters for acceptance as shown in the table below.
