1. INTRODUCTION
With the dslrBooth cash payment system it is possible to add a cash payment system to the
dslrBooth Photo Booth Software and charge money for printing photos. It can be used also
with Socialbooth, Sparkbooth and Breeze photo booth or Breeze Kiosk an other software.
The package is immediately ready for use and includes all necessary components like coin
or bill acceptor, a CASH-Interface2 board, USB to Serial converter, all necessary cables, as
well as the keystroke software which controls the dslrBooth Photo Booth Software. The
coin or bill validator as well as the CASH-Interface2 board is set up already to your needs.
Normally you do not need to change any devices settings, just plug it in and go.
The dslrBooth cash payment system can accept coins (also tokens or jetons) and banknotes
in almost every currency. Just let us know what currency and what coins or banknotes you
want accept and we set up everything for you!
The keystroke software monitors the CASH-Interface2 with connected coin and banknote
acceptor, and sends on enough credits, a start signal to the dslrBooth Photo Booth Software
and the photo process begins. The photo session can be started automatically or via external
push button. Using a push button with lamp or LED included, the button illumination can be
controlled and is lit when there are enough credits and photo software is in start screen
waiting for session trigger.
In the keystroke software itself there can be done several settings. For example set up the
coin and bill validator, set the costs for a photo job, windows security functions and other
settings. If there was an over payment, a new photo job is started as soon as the active job
has finished, either automatically or triggered manually via customer hits a push button.
While the photo booth machine is in action, the keystroke software is running invisible in
the background.
To get more information about a software function, point with your mouse over that
function and a small pop up window with extra information appears.
Check out the website from time to time if there is a new software version of the dslrBooth
as well as CASH-Interface2 keystroke edition available.

2.3 Cashless systems
Currently the following credit and smart card systems can be connected:
Nayax cashless payments
Otiglobal cashless payment systems
USA Technologies ePort
Sacoa Debit Card, POS and Redemption System
Ingenico pos solutions smart pos self-service
Please inform about the exact features of the cashless systems directly at the manufacturer.
The above listed devices can be connected without any problems to the CI2 board. The
device must work with PULSE Interface. Further information on the wiring of the
corresponding system can be obtained from us on request. The main information can be
found in this PDF: https://www.casino-software.de/download/ci2_nayax.pdf
2.4 PULSE-Adapter
Another possibility to connect the Nayax (or other cashless system) PULSE wire is to use
our PULSE-Adapter. There are two types of the PULSE-Adapter available, a COIN and a
BILL version.
The PULSE-Adapter COIN has a 10 pin
connector that fits to default coin plugs, and
offers again a 10 pin coin plug to plug in the
originally coin acceptor cable, so you do not
lose the coin acceptor connector. The cashless
device can be connected easily via plugable
terminal connector. With a jumper you can
select the coin channel on which the external
credit signal is transferred.
Additionally there is an INHIBIT out, to control the acceptance of the Nayax device.
The PULSE-Adapter BILL has a 16 pin
connector that fits to default NV9/NV10 plugs,
and offers again a 16 pin plug to plug in the
originally bill acceptor cable, so you do not
lose the bill acceptor connector.
The PULSE-Adapter BILL offers the same
options as the above PULSE-Adapter COIN,
select the bill channel by jumper and a
INHIBIT output.

Of course you can use cash (coin and banknotes) and cashless at the same time.

2.5 Hopper (Pay Change)
It is possible to pay change via a hopper. At the moment we support to use 2 hoppers. A
hopper can hold one coin type. For more information refer to the hoppers manual.
It is possible to connect hoppers of the type Azkoyen U-II, Flow-Hopper, Hopper HS-2012
(STD) via MK4 adapter, MK2/3/4 via MK4 adapter, Note dispenser ND300KM via
ND300KM adapter.
Protocol: PULSE
Pin out of the HOPPER plug:
If a hopper becomes empty while pay out process, the control tries to pay out the remaining
coins by the next hopper. If both hoppers are empty the credits remain in the OSD display
and we do not pay change. So it is the operators job to keep hoppers filled.
2.6 Camera ring illumination (Relays output)
The on board relays can be used to switch the illumination of the camera ring or other
illumination. The relays gets active close before we send the keystroke. So the light is on
while the photo booth software shows its count down. The time is adjustable, so it is
possible to fit the duration exactly to the photo session. There can be multiple ON/OFF
times, simply set the times in the format ON/OFF=time. For example ON=8000 means
switch relays ON for 8000ms = 8 seconds. In the keystroke software there is a schematic on
the Hardware page how to connect the relays.
The relays is a closer contact, NO 200 VDC, 15W. On the board it is marked as REL.
2.7 Start button + illumination
It is possible to start the photo session or trigger a print job via
external push button. To use this feature the "Manually" setting
must be selected. The push button is connected to IN1 pin on the
CASH-Interface2. OUT 2 provides a +12V output used to illuminate the START button
connected to IN1.
If credits are >= costs and receiver window is found, e.g. ″DSLRBOOTH – START″, the
button is illuminated and signals the user the machine is ready to start a photo session or
print job. The transistor max. current is 0,8A. On the board it is marked as OUT2.
Instead using a real push button there is a integrated button in the OSD now, see chapter 3.1
