A lot of us are watching closely.
As far as I can tell, the time is right, but the current offerings don't cut the mustard.
So I spent about 3 hrs today with the CCI tech. It appears one issue is that you cannot test dryers with the coin box out as the dryer goes into program mode.
Then there is another issue when using the manager card on the cci reader, it did not show the 'start dryer' menu on the reader. This was due to the with differences in credit between the cci card reader and the dryer console. We had to wait for the credits on the both where empty or used up.1. let the credit on the reader be used up to so the status is idle.2. powered down the dryer3. switch the coin drop cable ( 3 wire red, white, black ) in the dryer console to the coin drop harness instead of the cci reader ( both pockets )4. set dip switch 3 to off
5. power up dryer6. drop a coin into the slot and startup the dryer ( both pockets )7. wait for time to be used up.8. power down the dryer9. switch coin drop cables back to cci reader ( both pockets )10. set dip switch 3 back to on ( both pockets )11. power up dryer.It also appeared to have a bad cable. C6250-144. I removed this cable and plugged it into an adjacent working machine. Use the management card to put cci read in diagnostic mode. The coin drops did not register. But, I used a test meter and the 'bad' cable had continuity. So dont know. I hope there is more too it than that and the new cable resolve my problem.
