Arcade coin mechinism workings?

Thu Jun 21, 2018 1:28 am

Hello there,

I am designing an arcade, and am
curious as to how the official arcade
coin mechanisms work. If you could
tell me the sensors I need (e.g. weight
sensor, distance sensor, color sensor,
etc.) that would be great! :D

Thanks,
Boomonster

Hint: Google "arcade coin mechanisms"

You can take it from there.

Cheers.

They are pre made, it's easy to fit in any arcade you design. The only thing you have to do is to find what kind of coin you want to use.

To be honest, i think if you are building an Arcade, you NEED a coin tray. Otherwise good games become boooooring. What's the point of playing an Arcade with unlimited continues??? Plus you can recover some money at the parties.

It's too expensive. :cry:
I've got a VERY small
budget, and that would
take up more than half
of my budget, and then I
would still need to get arcade
buttons! :(

I see what you mean, except one
thing: what are coin
trays? :? I'm not very good
with Arcade terminology. :(

Coin tray = coin mechanism.

Okay. Yeah, I'm going to try make
my own, cause like I said, I've got
a small budget.
