BP-Bill-Acceptor Internet Kiosk Software Installation

Post by Administrator »

this is BP-Bill-Acceptor

1 Check your PC’ Com port availability
Most current PC have only one com port, usually is COM1
check your new com port: Start->Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manger
In this case, as shown in following picture is COM1 available, now you can connect the Weavefuture Coin Acceptor AK5’s RS232 cable (this cable is specially made for AK5, do not use it for other device or use other RS232 cable for AK5, do so may cause damages) to the COM1 port of your PC.
If you use USB-RS232 converter you will see the virtue com port like COM3

We also have another version of USB-RS232 driver.

"port setting"->Advanced->change the Com Port Number to any other available number for example COM1 ->OK.

2 Install the software.

Are there any updates to this installation guide? Also, I looked, but I didn't see if there is a newer version that uses something other than COM ports?

The USB is in fact USB-Serial adapter, which is virtual com port.
