LCD & Keypad Eloading Vendo - Installation Guide

by Dange Cris Bejoc

If you are looking for the Kiosk setup, visit http://blog.dafoxtech.com/articles/kiosk-mode-eloading-vendo-installation-guide

Eloading Machine

Materials Needed

Step 1: Flash The Arduino

  • Download the arduino Hex File
  • Connect the Arduino to the PC using its USB chord
  • Inside the zip file you just downloaded, locate and run Xloader.exe
  • In the XLoader window (Hex file) field, choose any of the hex files (If the upload failed, try the other hex)
  • Choose the correct COM Port Here's how to identify com port
  • Click upload

Step 2: Connect all the components

Arduino PIN Outputs
- PIN 12 & PIN 13 - LOW when paying mode, else HIGH
- Analog PIN A4 - LOW when phone battery is at <= 20% and HIGH when >= 80%
- Analog PIN A5 - HIGH when paying mode, else LOW
  1. Power Adaptor 12V DC (red wire) – Coin Acceptor DC
  2. Power Adaptor GND – Coin Acceptor GND
  3. Power Adaptor DC Jack – Arduino DC Jack Input
  4. LCD GND – Arduino GND
  5. LCD VCC – Arduino 5V
  6. LCD RS – Arduino A3
  7. LCD R/W – Arduino A2
  8. LCD E – Arduino A1
  9. LCD PSB – Arduino GND
  10. LCD RST – Arduino A0
  11. LCD BLA – Arduino 5V
  12. LCD BLK – Arduino GND
  13. Bluetooth Module GND – Arduino GND
  14. Bluetooth Module VCC – Arduino 5V
  15. Bluetooth Module TX – Arduino RX
  16. Bluetooth Module RX – Arduino TX
  17. Keypad 1 (Rightmost/Hashtag side) – Arduino Pin 10
  18. Keypad 2 – Arduino Pin 9
  19. Keypad 3 – Arduino Pin 8
  20. Keypad 4 – Arduino Pin 7
  21. Keypad 5 – Arduino Pin 6
  22. Keypad 6 – Arduino Pin 5
  23. Keypad 7 (Leftmost/Asterisk side)– Arduino Pin 4
  24. Coin Acceptor Coin line (white wire) – 10k Ohms resistor + Arduino 5V(optional)
  25. Coin Acceptor Coin Line – Arduino Digital Pin 3
  26. Bill Acceptor Pulse – Arduino Digial Pin 2 (Optional)
  27. Bill Acceptor Inhibit – Arduino Digital PIN 13 (Optional)
  28. Coin Acceptor Inhibit Pin(Top) – Arduino Analog PIN A5

Bill Acceptor Add-on Guide

Use the same power source connection with the Coin Acceptor.
Connect the pulse wire to the Digital PIN 2 and tap 5V with 10k ohms resistor (same concept w/ coin acceptor). Use the 5V connected with the Bluetooth module VCC (15)
Connect the bill acceptor’s inhibit pins to Arduino Digital Pin 13

Bill Aceptor’s supported pulses are
- 20 bill - 2 pulses
- 50 bill – 5 pulses
- 100 bill – 10 pulses
- 200 bill – 20 pulses
- 500 bill– 50 pulses
- 1000 bill - 100 pulses)

Step 3: Android App Setup

  • Insert SIM card (any network) to your Android phone exclusive for Eloading
    Note: (Our gateways are SMART, so your sim should be able to send sms to smart)

  • Download and install the Android App

  • Set the phone's lock screen to none (to prevent the lockscreen from blocking the app's autostart)

  • Turn on the Arduino

  • Open the Android App and follow the step by step setup (make sure you make it as the default SMS App)

  • Set the Fox-Eloader app as the default home/launcher to make it open automatically on start

  • Click on the app's menu and tap Connect to machine

  • The Machine should show up in the list (usually named HC-05), just tap it. Input the default password (1234) when prompted.

  • Wait until the machine is connected.

  • Open the menu again, and tap Activate App then input the activation code you purchased.

    If you want to avail the free trial, just submit the activation form with blank code. Free trial ends after 5 successful load purchases.

  • Wait for the success message popup.
