Sigma PC Reception Control now with USB Compatibility

The Sigma PC has been widely used as a standalone reception control for many years and also interfaces with several third party software programs. The RS232 communication via a serial port has served well over the years but as USB has replaced the serial port as the de facto standard the Sigma has also moved with the times.

The wholly British designed and manufactured Sigma PC now ships with USB connectivity in place of the serial port and is a worthy competitor to imported reception controls.

Nathan Suppiah of installers Sunbed Services says that the Sigma is the most reliable control system he has ever installed.

New £1 Coin Update

The new £1 coin has now been released by the Royal Mint. The old £1 coin will remain as legal tender until 15th October 2017.

Although the old coin will be progressively removed from circulation the Royal Mint do not expect that the new coin will become prevalent until early summer. Consequently we advise that our machines are not converted too early but that conversion kits are purchased in good time and meters converted when the new coin is more in use than the old coin.

Conversion kits are now shipping. Phone Pauline in sales on 01258 489075 to place your order.

New £1 Coin

The Royal Mint will be introducing a new £1.00 coin into circulation in March 2017. There will be a six month period when the existing £1.00 and the new £1.00 coin will co-circulate.
The existing £1.00 coin will begin to be withdrawn from circulation when the new coin is introduced in March 2017.
From September 2017 the existing £1.00 will no longer have legal tender status.
That is they will not be accepted by banks, shops, etc.

There are two types of conversions for these meters depending on the age of the meter.

If the serial number of your LT3100 is greater than LT-052190 you will need to order the post 2011 conversion kit. This has a part number of 964-001-072-001 and a cost of £5.00 (Per conversion, Plus carriage and VAT).

Wyvern 2000 meters can accept both the old and the new £1

Spanish Dog Salon Facilities

It appears that the Spanish love, and pamper, their dogs almost as much as the British. Catering to this, a new self-service dog salon has opened in the Spanish capital, Madrid, complete with washing facilities and hairdryers for subsequent grooming.


Leisure Controls International Ltd is pleased to have supplied the timers for the salon equipment. The LT3100 coin-operated timers were installed by Calor-i-Frio who report that the facilities are heavily used and appreciated by both owners and pooches alike. The pictures below show one of the customers, Sultan, being cycled home after his trip to the salon and the extensive facilities available.
