The Coin Detector Circuit
Nghia T. Le Purdue University
This paper discusses the design of a Coin Detector Project that utilizes an inductor as an inductive proximity switch. The project covers basic analog/digital circuits that the students have learned during the first two years in the Electrical Engineering Technology Program at Purdue University. Figure 1 below shows the block diagram of the project.

Figure 1 – The Block Diagram of the Circuit
In the ready mode, the circuit shows 00 at the seven-segment displays. When a quarter, a dime, or a nickel passes through the slot, the display becomes 25, 10, or 05 respectively in a two-second period and it then resets itself to 00.
The project consists of different stages that are manageable as weekly classroom activities. It helps the students to utilize their knowledge to design and build a working circuit.
