    Hi everyone!

    I have a SR-1210 coin slot acceptor.

    input and output pins configuration:
    2-gray both ends for counter
    1-red for +12VDC supply
    1-white for coin signal
    1-black for ground.

    i want this thing to connect in may pc and create a timer program in .net/java application. Does anyone can help me with this problem?

    I really need this stuff to work in my net cafe. Thank you in advance for those who can contribute/share their skills in this matter.

    I think you'll need a processor (Arduino or PIC) and suitable serial interface.

    Here's a quick way to start:

    You will probably went to spend quite some time experimenting with this before you try communicating with a computer. On second thought, there is code out there written for arduino that communicates with the computer using lots of different protocols. If you have a decent background in programming, you could probably pull it off by simply copy-pasting this code into your chip.

    Go experiment!
