Get connected: USB is the USP!


In an environment where USB communications are becoming vitally important, AstroSystems Ltd, suppliers of the GBA and Microcoin currency validation brands, are pleased to announce their new connectivity options for the amusement industry.

All three of the new-generation GBA bill acceptor models – the GBA GV1 vault, GBA ST1 modular stacker and GBA ST2 stackerless unit – are now equipped with direct USB connectors that allow full serial connectivity between the validator and controller PCB. The ever-popular Microcoin coin validator range – comprising the QL and SP products – is also fully USB compatible, via a user-friendly Serial Module device.

AstroSystems’ SDK application can then be utilised to allow simple integration of GBA and Microcoin devices into a wide variety of serial-based applications, from slot machines to kiosks.

Leo Bateman, Sales Executive, commented: “Times are changing fast in all industries, and USB connectivity is now essential if you wish to be successful in providing relevant solutions. With the wide-ranging options that our products can now offer to the manufacturer and operator alike, we are in a position to be able to assist with all areas of integration.”
