SMARTCOINBOX CONVERTS YOUR DOMESTIC LAUNDRY MACHINE TO COIN OPERATED
DRYER MACHINE NOT INCLUDED.
SMARTCOINBOX is designed to cut-off electrical power to machines once the pre-set timer drops to ZERO.
The dryer must have a 4-prong plug, 2 HOT, 1 NEUTRAL and 1 GROUND.
Commercial washer and dryer cost $400 to $500 more than a typical household washer and dryer. Domestic washer and dryer are just as rugged and operate exactly the same way. The only difference is that a commercial washer and dryer have coin device WIRED DIRECTLY to the machine and if it breaks down the repair is not cheap.You pay for a service call (around $80 minimum) plus parts and It can be out of commission for weeks.
SMARTCOINBOX device is designed to control the electrical power flow to the washer/dryer through an electrical plug-in. SMARTCOINBOX would mount on the wall just above the machine and the machine would plug directly into the device.
SMARTCOINBOX accepts QUARTER (USA) and MQTEK supplied TOKENS (included/installed) and will run for preset time per coin. There is a countdown display that accumulates every time a coin is inserted. Say $1.00 (Canada) or $ 0.25 (USA) for 30 minutes or $1.00 (Canada) or $ 0.25 (USA) per 45 minutes. The machine will stop after the accumulated time REGARDLESS of the machine cycle status. The intended applications of this controller are student housings, rooming houses and basement apartments especially if laundry is included in the rent being collected.

Or drying a piece of underwear for 60 minutes? They don’t care because they don’t pay the utilities anyway. Its part of the rent.
