G-Rabbit Slave Module (Slot Machine Interface Board) SMIB
This module is connected to each player position and connected as appropriate according to the system requirements and machine type.
For example, when monitoring a machine that is SAS compliant, with no requirements for Cashless or Player Loyalty, only the Power, SAS and Ethernet connectors will be populated or used.
For Cashless operation on non SAS-EFT machines, the SMIB emulates the machine coin switches for credit-to-machine transactions, taking note of coin-lockout status, and responds to the machine's hopper-run signal by emulating the machine's coin-out switch. Provision is made for N/O or N/C switches and HI or LO levels on the inputs.
The G-Rabbit system caters for machines that allow "Coin stacking" as well as those that are "Vegas" style (Only allow credits to be accepted for a single game) by alternative interfacing methods.
Most of the SMIB configuration (Coin pulse widths & ratios etc.) are configured through the G-Rabbit host system. This simplifies installing the SMIB's in different machine types.
