I have an old Dixie Narco (DNCB 432t/252-6) soda machine. I bought it cheaply and put it in at work when our old one broke. It's more as a courtesy than a money maker.

It has a a Mars Electronics TRC-6200 coin mechanism in it. I would like to add a dollar bill acceptor to the machine.

Will this coin mechanism work with a dollar bill acceptor?

What type of a acceptor do I need to get?

Does anybody have a wiring diagram to help me hook it up?

Do you need more information?

Thanks you.

You will need a different coin mech. I would recomend a Mars TRC-6800H. I would also recomend a Mars VN-2511 bill acceptor. Do you have a hole in the machine for a bill acceptor? If not, you will need to cut a hole, and get a mounting bracket. Altogether, you will need:

1-Mars VN-2511 bill acceptor
1-Mars TRC-6800H coin changer
1-Mars single price harness
1-Mars 110 volt power harness
1-Mars/Coinco mounting bracket

There are lots of companies out there that have everything you need. We have a complete kit with all the above parts included.

Our part number is VT3010. The price is $240. 970-623-1272.

Thanks for the answer. Are there any other combinations that will work? Something cheaper. I really don't make much money from this. It's just to help my coworkers out. I sell sodas for .50 out of it.

I saw something like this and got my hopes up. http://www.ebay.com/...=item1c2119ecd3

What's a MDB?

I can do a set using Coinco units and it will only cost $164.

Will they work with my machine? Will you give wiring instructions? Are the coinco units that much inferior to the Mars?

Do you have a website?

I can give you any help you need, over the phone if necessary. We don't have the kits on our website, www.vendorstech.com Coincos are inferior IMO, but they will work...
