The PRO-1 makes it easy to update Apex 5000 Bill Acceptors. (A PRO-2 programmer is currently under development to support both Apex 5000 and 7000 Models.) Simply pre-load the PRO-1 with the desired 2 firmware version, plug it into the Apex, and the update happens automatically. The PRO-1 is powered by the bill acceptor when connected, so there is no need for a battery or power supply.
The USB Flash Download Cable is used to update bill acceptors with new firmware via Windows PC, and perform Configuration and Diagnostic functions using the Acceptor Tools software (free download from http://www.pyramidacceptors.com).
For acceptors with the 120VAC power supply, this will adapt the 9-pin connector to a wall plug to power the
acceptor using a standard 120VAC wall outlet.
This is an 18-pin harness to interface to the Apex bill acceptor I/O. All 18 wires are present. Harness is 36” long.
This harness plugs into our 18-pin I/O connector on the Apex bill acceptor and allows the user to connect the
acceptor directly to a harness originally intended for an HSV-300 acceptor. This harness is a seven (7) pin
connector and is 6” long
This harness is used to interface a Palm to the Apex bill acceptor. This harness is used for acceptor diagnostics and flash software downloading. Please visit http://www.pyramidacceptors.com and go to the “Download” section to download the Palm program. For complete Palm documentation, see the “Support “ section of the web site. These files are also available upon request.
This kit mounts the Apex bill acceptor to a wood door, and comes with all necessary mounting hardware.
This harness is needed for true RS-232 communication. The harness comes with a DB9 connector on 36” of
cable, as well as a hard drive connector on 36” of cable to obtain 12 VDC power for the bill acceptor from the
PC. Order Document “RS232” for more details (or visit our web site). The “Download” section of our web site
has a demo program which you can download to try out the PC interface.
This harness is needed for USB communication. The harness comes with a USB connector on 36” of cable, as well as a hard drive connector on 36” of cable to obtain 12 VDC power for the note acceptor from the PC. Order Document “RS232” for more details (or visit our web site). The
