Built In Field Test
Field Tests & Diagnostics
operation mode of the Xeptor is with the rotary switch switch position
#0 where the LED is green. If the LED is flashing yellow, it means
that the Xeptor is inhibited. This can be caused by an external
control line such as from a door switch or otherwise as controlled by
the machine that it connects to. It may also (although less likely) be
caused by improper setting of the Inhibit bit in the SysConfig control
byte. If the LED is alternating red-green, it indicates a malfunction
has been detected. Some malfunctions can be corrected in the field.
Gate Relay Test
(rotary switch #0)
Press the test button to activate the gate relay.
If it does not activate, it may be physically obstructed or its
wire unplugged. This would be one cause for rejection of all coins.
Inductive Metal Sensor Tests
(rotary switch #E, #F)
Turn the rotary switch to positions #E and #F to test the inductive
sensor. Normal LED color is green. A red color most often indicates
either there is metal in front of the inductive sensors or that the
flat cable going to the small sensor housing has been unplugged.
Diameter Optics Sensor Tests
(rotary switch #B, #C, #D)
Turn the rotary switch to positions #B, #C, and #D to test each of the
three diameter thru-beam optical sensors. Normal LED color is green. A
red or orange color most likely indicated either there is an object or
dirt blocking one of these three sensors and cleaning of the coin cute
is required, or that the flat cable going to the small sensor housing
has been unplugged.
X-Mark Code Optics Sensor Calibration
(rotary switch #9, #A )
apply to X-20 Family)
Fold a piece of white paper twice (to 4 thicknesses) and insert it
into the center of the coin chute. Turn the rotary switch to position
#9 (rear side optics) and press the test button. The unit will use
information gathered to calibrate the sensitivity of its reflective
sensors for reading the X-Mark optical code on tokens. The LED should
be an orange color after calibration. Repeat for switch position #A
(front side optics). When you remove the paper, the LED should be
green in both of the switch positions.
Credit Sensor Test
(rotary switch #8)
The credit optics (if installed) are located just above and below the
gate relay rake. If they are not installed the LED will flash amber to
indicate that the credit optics were not detected at power-up. If they
are installed, the LED is normally green for proper function, and will
become orange to red as they become blocked by dirt or other
(rotary switch #7)
Turn the rotary switch to positions #7 to test the validity of memory.
Normal LED color is green. A red color indicates that memory is
corrupted. It may be possible to correct this by re-learning the
coins. If not, the memory chip is
