The original ccTalk protocol did not use any kind of encryption. It was thought that the security in a serial interface was so much better than a parallel one that no. The ccTalk protocol is used to transfer information and commands to various money processing device, including coin/bill acceptors and coin. The OSI 7-layer network model is of limited use for a simple control protocol such as cctalk. Whereas the task of writing software for full-blown networking.

The protocol was developed at a company called Coin Controls hence coin-controls-talk, prottocol called Money Controls and from Crane Payment Solutions on the outskirts of Manchester in north-west England mainly by Engineer Andrew William Barson.

Any device that receives this one needs to prptocol with an ACK packet ie an empty response frame. Open serial port Generate the message to be sent, calculate checksum Write the message on the serial interface Listen for the answer if any.

To test ccParse, here is a ccTalk traffic capture: The interface is simple just one bidirectional data wire ,PC friendly and easy to implement even on a low resources micro controller. This article is the first part of a series about the ccTalk protocol. Notify me of new posts via email. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

I couldn’t find any open source ccTalk sniffer out there to decode ccTalk frames properly, so I created two tools, one that can be used to sniff a ccTalk bus and show cctali packets and an other that is used to parse sniffed prootocol and display frames in a nice curses interface. Examples Here are some example packets: The security is somehow higher due the redundancy in the data received by the host machine. You are commenting using your WordPress.

The address 0 is the broadcast address. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: Is a variant of parallel pulse protocol where a the outputs are valid only on the edge of a clock linethis allow using combinations to represent the bill channel so 16 bills can be signaled using 4 data outputs and a clock line. Only for coin and bill acceptors.

All the tools use a Python ccTalk library I made.

Can be run over serial to USB converters. Regarding responses, all of them use header 0, which can be considered as an ACK packet.

CCtalk Specification

This can be problematic on higher value bills or coins, for a Eur bill pulses must be sentthe probability that an error occur is pretty high. MRodrigues 1, 13 You are commenting using your Facebook account. Protocool are the most common protocols usedI have tested more or less all of them:. InDES encryption was added to certain commands so that it could be protoco, more resilient against attacks on the bus.


As an odditythe machines that use ID bill acceptors are also using ccTalk for the coin acceptor and coin hopper.
