The Hopper U II is a new, reengineered version of the original Serie-U Hopper adding specific key upgrades as noted below. The Hopper U II is what is referred to as a rotating hopper. A rotating hopper utilizes a coin extractor disk which spins so coins can be extracted from the hopper. The Hopper U II is an intelligent mechanism that works in combination with electronics within the machine it is intended to be used in.
NEW FEATURES OF THE HOPPER U-II:
Parallel or ccTalk protocol
Can be operated in Pulse working mode by configuring the logic with a jumper; pulses should be Positive logic and a minimum duration (in both high and low level) of at least 5 milliseconds
Flash technology now allows for easy updating, modifying and on line programming of the hopper's firmware (protocol, etc.) without having to change the pcb
New coin detection system when paying out coins incorporates new algorithms for increased reliability, and also features an auto calibration process of the sensor that counts the coins
A significant advancement is that all new U II Hoppers operate between 12V-24V in a single unit; no longer is it necessary to use one voltage or the other
4 Bowl sizes available: Small (coin capacity approx. 250); Medium (coin capacity approx. 400); Intermediate (coin capacity approx. 525); Large (coin capacity approx. 600)
3 Vertical Extension sizes available to increase coin capacity: Medium (for Medium Bowl hopper only)--increases coin capacity to approx. 700 total coins; Large (also for Medium Bowl hopper only)--increases coin capacity to approx. 1,100 total coins; Extra (for Large Bowl hopper only)--increases coin capacity to approx. 1,600 total coins
**NOTE: Vertical Extensions are NOT available for either the Small Bowl or Intermediate Bowl hoppers
Full Overflow allowing additional space for coins to "overflow" the bowl
Low Level or High Level sensors to detect when the hopper is either "empty" or "full"
