The Microcoin QL Micromate allows a user to check and modify the coin and programming settings in the QL. It will also enable the programming of new coins and tokens, and allow diagnostic tests to be done.
A QL needs to be connected to a 12VDC power source via its parallel port to work with the Micromate
The QL Micromate is powered by an internal battery. It also has an input for an external 9VDC power source which should be used during extended programming sessions to preserve the battery
Configuration data is downloaded from the QL into the Micromate where it is then edited. Any changes made to the configuration are NOT saved until the end of the editing session
