The much requested feature has finally arrived to the Bleskomat DIY project: Bill Acceptor support. The code has been merged into the master branch and will be included in the next release. But if you don’t want to wait, you can compile your own binaries from source and start hacking today!
The newly added code will work with the popular NV9 and NV10 USB+ bill acceptors by Innovative Technology (ITL). Basic instructions have been added to the project’s readme file which can help with the wiring and configuration. Please refer to the documentation provided by ITL with regards to setup and configuration of the bill acceptor unit.
If you manage to add a bill acceptor to your DIY build, we’d love to hear from you. Tweet at us on twitter – @bleskomat – and we will be happy to retweet your creation.
