Hey peeps looking to build a MFME cab, done a few MAME cabs, and I can get MFME to read the keystrokes, my question is how do you guys make the program connect to the hopper and payout?

 

sorry if it's a noob question, but I'm starting to build a prototype and would very much appreciate your help :)

MFME can connect to the hopper via an I-PAC ( https://www.ultimarc.com/ipac1.html) and a Pac-Drive ( https://www.ultimarc.com/pacdrive.html ) with outputs off at startup - ensure that you request that option.

 

Note that you must not have conflict Pac-Drive's as they have different numbers.

 

Both of these devices need to share a common ground and can be wired up to a ME126 coin mech ( eBay ) and a couple of Universal MK IV parallel hoppers ( http://www.e-service...per-replacement) along with the baseplates ( http://www.e-service...opper-baseplate ), one for each hopper.  The hoppers need to run off a seperate 24v PSU (eBay), but this kind of thing ( https://www.ebay.co....K-/291087849273 ).

Do note tho, that any hopper can be used that has a low going signal to enable the motor and gives a low going pulse for every coin payed out.

 

Once this is in play and everything correctly wired and configured - you can control the hoppers via MFME.

Note you must be running MFME v6.

Hi Reg,

 

I want to say You make a great job !!!

 

I have connect my hopper to my pac drive and when  i push the collect button,  all the tokens in my hopper  falls.

this is a good first step but  how do you configure the token countdown ?

 

the hopper sensor out must be connect to  i-pac for deduct each token or is different ?

 

thank for your answer

 

Eric

The Hopper coin sense output connects to the i-Pac which must generate a '[' for hopper 1 and a ']' for hopper 2

By the way, do NOT power your hopper motor directly from the PAC Drive as that will overload it and likely kill it. If you need to do this use a PNP power transistor between the PAC Drive and the motor and add a back EMF diode as shown in some of the hopper datasheets.

 

If your hopper has a logic level motor enable then you can connect it directly.
