Hello, my name is Rita, and today I’ll show you the Pay Plus card reader installation process.
First, let’s open the PayPlus box and see what comes with the device. Inside the box is a PayPlus cashless device, a standard cellular antenna, a Bluetooth antenna, an MDB wire harness, a DEX wire harness, a flange mounting plate, a gasket, and mounting screws.
In addition to what is provided in the box, you’ll need a Phillips-head screwdriver, a power drill, and a one half inch drill bit. If your machine does not have a knockout plate/window cover, you’ll need a ¾” deep wall socket and a 5/32” drill bit to drill holes necessary to mount the PayPlus device.
Okay, now that we have all of our materials, let’s get started with installation!
Step 1 – Prep the Machine
First, let’s power down the vending machine.
Now, we’ll prep the machine for installation. Either remove the machine knock out plate or drill holes in the front of your machine using the PayPlus drill guide.
In this demonstration, we have a knockout plate, so we’ll move to the next step without drilling holes to mount the device. If you do need to drill, please utilize the drill guide included with your device.
Step 2 – Connect the Antennas
To get the best cellular reception for your PayPlus reader, it’s ideal to mount the antenna on top of the machine. For this, you may need to drill a half inch hole on top of the machine for the antenna. Once we’ve drilled the hole, we’re going to feed the antenna wires through the machine and fasten the antenna to the top of the machine. However, for this video, we mounted the antenna on the inside of the machine because the cellular signal in this area was strong.
Now, we’ll connect the antenna cable to the PayPlus device. If you are installing the bluetooth antenna, mount it on the inside of the machine using the magnetic base. Then connect the antenna to the machine. The Bluetooth antenna is connected to the top port here, and the cellular antenna is connected to the bottom port.
Step 3 – Connect MDB, DEX, and LAN cables
Next, we’re going to connect the rest of our cables. Plug the MDB connection to the vending machine – this will go between the coin mech and bill validator mdb connections. Now, plug in the DEX cable. Plug the LAN connector into the RJ45 port on the back of the PayPlus Device. Take the jack and plug it into the DEX board on the vending machine.
Step 4 – Mount the PayPlus Device
Now that all of our cables are attached to the device, let’s mount it to the machine! Use the included screws and flange plate to mount the PayPlus device to the front of your machine. Power on the vending machine, and you’re good to go! The device was activated upon shipment, so it should power on and activate with the machine.
