Vending machine: How to update for new £1 coins?
I'm currently transferring to a new role which includes managing a vending machine. In the UK we adopted a new £1 coin a few years ago but no one ever updated our vending machine to accept them.
The vending machine machine has a Cashflow 690 coin mechanism made by Mars and I have checked the operating manual but couldn't find a solution. I checked their website for guidance and found instructions to disable old £1 coins, but no advice for getting the new coins to work. When I tried inserting the new £1 coin no information appeared on the display so I guess its not recognised.
Are there any vending machine experts out there who know a solution to program in the new £1 coin's information using the buttons on the coin mechanism?
Is this a good question?
