Token Security Evolution Token Security Evolution Silver Dollar Currency Unique alloy signature. High hopper fill cost. US Mint terminated circulation. 18% Nickel Silver Token Low hopper fill cost. Nice silvery appearance. Easily counterfeited with lead. 6% Nickel Silver Token Low hopper fill cost. Cheaper & different from 18% NiAg. Easily counterfeited with solder. X-Mark Token 10% higher token cost. Must make minting die sets to counterfeit it. H-Mark Token Much higher token costs. Must make holograms to counterfeit it.
Crossplay & Counterfeit Law Crossplay & Counterfeit Law Federal Law: The US Constitution Article 1, Section 8 gives congress exclusive authority to coin and regulate money… vested in the US Mint. The US Mint has defined the physical and usage limits for tokens, prohibiting crossplay of tokens with other coins or tokens. 18 USC – 336/491 provides penalties for producing tokens intended for use in other establishments. The Law: When a token is accepted in another establishment for face value, then it has become money… and penalties may apply. The US Mint requires casinos to a) sell only their own tokens to customers, and b) use only their own tokens on table games. (Federal Law & Regulations Link)
Crossplay Problems Crossplay Problems US nickels & Canadian 1985-1999 nickels. Canadian nickels could play for $.70 cents on the dollar in the US. The 2 Euro and the Thai 10 Bhat. The Thai 10 Bhat coin is worth about 0.16 Euros. Casino, arcade, and carwash tokens. An arcade or carwash token may have any value… guess what? $5 Canadian and $1 US 1.465” tokens. $1 US tokens in Canada are worth about $1.4 in their $5 slots. Nickel-Silver tokens in adjacent casinos. Casinos bear cost of backroom sorting, armored truck redistribution. (Crossplay Articles Link)
Counterfeit Problems Counterfeit Problems Shaved coins fool hopper credit sensor. Trim only.030” from the diameter and slam it in an old comparator. Lost wax process cast tokens. A class counterfeiting operation, fools all but X-Mark. $1 & $5 Nickel-Silver slugged with lead. Lead weights from car tires are melted and poured into disk molds. $2 US tokens played in $1 machines. Same as coin shaving… but may be legal… hoppers still empty. HS-1 alloy and cut-penny lead slugs. Changing the conductivity with HS-1 didn’t stop them very long. (Counterfeiting Articles Link)
Mr. Xeptor’s Security Features Mr. Xeptor’s Security Features Topics We Will Examine Include: X-Mark Optically Encoded Tokens. Precision Optical Diameter Measurement. Multiple Metal Alloy Measurements. Acceptance Speed Matters. X-Key and X-Tracker Software. Built-In Credit Optics.
SmartMark, X-Mark, H-Mark SmartMark, X-Mark, H-Mark Gen-1 1994 SmartMark SmartMark : Construction: Annular reflective rings. It can be easily counterfeited with shop lathe. Token Mint: Roger Williams Mint, (Olde Philadelphia Mint), licensed under IDX Patents. Coin Acceptor: Coin Mechanisms Intelligent Comparator, licensed under IDX Patents. Gen-2 1997 X-Mark X-Mark : Construction: Skewed angle facet band. Requires tool and die shop to counterfeit. Token Mint: Osborne Coinage, Cincinnati OH, licensed under IDX Patents. Coin Acceptor: IDX Inc., El Dorado AR. Models X-10, X-50, X-60 and X-70. Gen-3 2003 H-Mark H-Mark : Construction: Asymmetric merged holographic facets in a band. Fairly counterfeit proof. Token Mint: Osborne Coinage supported by DuPont Holographics, under IDX patents. Coin Acceptor: IDX Inc., El Dorado AR, Model H-60.
X-Mark Optical Codes X-Mark Optical Codes The X-Mark has an array of inclined reflective facets minted in a band about the periphery of the token. Many different X-Mark Codes can be made by having different rotational angles of the facet faces. The X-Mark is recessed below the surface of protective “Guard Bands” on each side of the X-Mark annular band. 120 ° 142 ° 30 ° 60 ° 75 °
X-Mark Optical Codes X-Mark Optical Codes X-Mark Optics include one photo-transistor and two infrared LEDs. Each unit can detect one of two possible code angles… or none at all. The positions of the photo-elements sets which angles it can detect. 60° / 120° 105° / 165° 30° / 142° 0° / 30° Photo-Transistor The light from the LEDs focuses through the lens molded into the housing to the token, and then back through the lens to focus on a phototransistor if the reflection is correct. LED
X-Mark Optical Codes X-Mark Optical Codes The front and rear side of the token may have different codes. No Code *3N390°, 165°6B45°, 135°3915°, 105°17 No Code *2N290°, 150°6A60°, 120°4830°, 90°26 No Code *1N175°, 150°5A45°, 120°3815°, 90°16 ObsoleteNN60°, 150°4A30°, 120°2815°, 75°15 30°, 142°8B75°, 135°5945°, 105°370°, 75°05 105°, 165°7B60°, 135°4930°, 105°270°, 60°04 AnglesCodeAnglesCodeAnglesCodeAnglesCode X-Mark Angles & Order Codes *1: For Coin Diameters 0.650" to 1.110". *2: For Coin Diameters 0.800" to 1.255". *3: For Coin Diameters 1.020" to 1.475". Security Question: Won’t Other Mints Copy X-Mark And Defeat Its Security Value? IDX owns world wide patents on the art of optically encoded tokens and has more than once stopped mints from making tokens that would jeopardize X-Mark’s crossplay security.
H-Mark vs X-Mark H-Mark vs X-Mark The H-Mark produces asymmetrical bright spots from a merged pair of virtual holographic facets that cannot be physically minted into a metal surface. When aligned with a light beam, the front and back sides of the facets create symmetrical bright spots. This Makes H-Mark Virtually Counterfeit Proof. The X-Mark has an array of inclined reflective facets minted in a band about the periphery of the token.
H-Mark Status H-Mark Status Ticket-In-Ticket-Out technology that started to emerge in 2001 took hold and reduced market interest in tokens. The X-Mark still had not been successfully counterfeited. X-Mark’s great security record makes H-Mark not yet needed. The H-Mark Token And Xeptor Development Were Completed In 2003. The Market, However, Had A Mind Of Its Own H-Mark Is On Production Hold… Until The Market Says Otherwise.
Metal Alloy Signature Metal Alloy Signature Copper – 100% Brass – 85/15 Brass – 70/30 TSA-2% & HS1 TSA-6% & HS2 TSA-9% Nickel Silver 752 More Nickel More Copper Alloy Resistivity HIGH LOW A metal alloy sensor induces eddy currents to flow in the coin using high frequency magnetic fields. Energy lost to the current flowing through the metal resistance is measured to determine alloy composition.
Multi-Metal Signature Multi-Metal Signature Edge Sensing Center Sensing Bi-Metal Coins As the coin falls through, separate measurements are first taken on the edge of the coin, and later in the center of the coin. S N N S Series Magnetic Field Anti-Series Magnetic Field N S Alloy / Thickness The Series field penetrates through the coin and is primarily influenced by alloy. The Anti-Series field is strongly influenced by thickness of the coin because of the central null. Low Frequency For Interior High Frequency For Surface Clad Coins Low Frequency fields penetrate much deeper into the coin than do High Frequency fields. Thus, the High Frequency field is much more strongly influenced by the clad layer. Security Question: Does Size Matter? Yes, And Smaller Is Better! One Large Sensor Coil Averages A Multi-Metal Coin Into Just One Alloy Reading... Security Lost!
X-Mark vs X-Metal Xeptors X-10, X-50 X-60, X-70 X-20, X22 X-Mark Codes Edge & Center Metal Bi-Metal Coins Edge & Center Metal Series & Anti-Series Thickness Series & Anti-Series High/Low Frequency Clad Coins High/Low Frequency Currency coins often have a clad structure, but lack X-Mark. Token coins are secured with X-Mark, and have no cladding. Security Question: When do you use an X-10 vs X-20?
Precision Diameter Precision Diameter The average reading error is +/-.005” (0.12mm) TOP MID BOT.330”.870” As the token passes downward, the TOP, MID, and BOT Diameter Beams are broken and re-made at specific points in time. X-10 Example Security Question: How Does This Relate To Empty Hoppers? t TOP – t MID t BOT – t MID Diameter =.870” + (.330”) Time difference ratio method makes the calculation independent of the speed of the coin. Shaved Coins Fool The Credit Switch On The Hopper Exit And Thus Come Out For Free. Shaved Coins Should Be Rejected Before They Get Into The Hopper… A Deficiency In Acceptors Without Specific Diameter Sensors.
Acceptance Speed Matters Acceptance Speed Matters Newtonian Physics Says: Security Question: So What? Customers Can Feed This Fast C.C. NRI QL Cn+ IDX – Acc. IDX – Rej. From This We Can Plot: Here’s What… Typical Spec: 6 to 10 /sec Max. X-10 & X-20 Xeptor Lab Tests Show: Proper Acceptance In A Stream Of Good Coins. Proper Rejection Of Bad Coin In Good Stream. 1.A slug fast fed with other good coins could be given credit. 2.You will limit your revenue generation rate from fast players. 3.Your fast players may think the machine is defective and move on. A coin of diameter X starting at rest, falls a distance equal to its diameter in time t. The next coin can then start to fall behind it.
Built-In Credit Optics Built-In Credit Optics Installed Credit Optics External Credit Optics: Part of the slot machine, such as IGT S+. Located just below the coin acceptor. Acceptor SENSE pulse is used to activate the machines credit optics for a moment. Internal Credit Optics: Part of the coin acceptor, not the machine. Located just above and below the gate relay. Acceptor CREDIT pulse used by slot machine. Security Question: What If I Use The Wrong Credit Optics Option? If Neither Machine Nor Xeptor Have Credit Optics: All Xeptors produce both SENSE and CREDIT pulses, so the slot machine will function normally, but will be susceptible to stringing. If Both Machine And Xeptor Have Credit Optics: For the same reason, the slot machine will function normally. Built-in credit sensors provide the best stringing defense by combining sequence logic from its other sensors.
K-Key & X-Tracker K-Key & X-Tracker Security Questions: 1. Who Has Access To Change Coin Programming? ( Who really could get their grubby mits on the acceptor if they wanted to? ) 2. Who Re-programmed This Xeptor… And When? ( When you get scammed, will there be any tracks left by the perpetrator? )
Xeptor LED Indicator Chart UnSecured Secured No X-Key Secured w/ X-Key Sw2 = 0 Run Mode Sw-2 = 1-6 Coin Learn K-Key & X-Tracker K-Key & X-Tracker The X-Key Provides: 1. Access control for who can reprogram Xeptors. 2. A record of re-programmed Xeptor Serial Numbers. 3. A Time-Date-AuthID Stamp for the Xeptor to record. Once an Xeptor is re-programmed with an X-Key attached, the Xeptor becomes “Secured” and may no longer be freely re-programmed without an X-Key connected.
K-Key & X-Tracker K-Key & X-Tracker X-Tracker Product Features Two level Security Roster for: a) personnel management, b) X-Key log on/off. Redundant encrypted files of all activity ensure reliable, tamper proof records. X-Key is enabled only by authorized personnel who remain responsible until disabled. Authorization ID and time and date stamp stored in local files and in Xeptor memory. X-Tracker Program Link

Installation & Operation Installation & Operation Master Tech Question: What is the purpose of using 6 coin samples? Answer : Variations exist from coin-to-coin. Variations exist from reading-to-reading. Therefore, a few samples allow the Xeptor to find the average and the distribution for each sensor reading to create the optimum value and tolerance for each coin signature parameter. Master Tech Question 2: What Is The Purpose Of Having 6 Coin Memories? Answer: Not all coins or tokens that look alike are alike: - Canada has 2 quarters, 2 dimes and 3 nickels. - A second purchase of tokens is not always identical. In order to accept all, each variation must be programmed. (Note: You can use HyperTerminal to see if you have variations in your coins)
