    Post How to get coin acceptor pulses from serial port?

    Can someone help me how to get coin acceptor pulses from serial port (RS232 to be exact)
    I dont know what pin to put the signal wire of the coin acceptor to the serial port.
    I want is a simple program to display an exact value of coin inserted from the acceptor and shows the same value to the text box

    RS232 needs a minimum of 3 wires connected - or possibly 2 if it's purely one-way traffic.

    Post the URL of the manual from the manufacturer of the coin acceptor.

    I dont have see any manual from the manufacturer. But as far as I know, some are using the same coin acceptor connected to RS232 and show pulses on VB6

    Well they're not plugging it directly into RS-232, that's for sure.

    There is no mention of RS-232 (or connection to PC) in that manual.

    There might be other coin acceptors that have a digital output like RS-232, but this isn't one of them.

    You'll need to connect the coin acceptor's signal wire to the RX (receive) pin of your RS232 serial port.
