  • omega tek problem

    i am installing some 70s with omegatek boards into a center. the trouble i am having is when the machine is cycled by either the rear pbc or the ball return cycle button the sweep contactor will not fully engage. the contactor hums as if it isnt getting a full 24v supply. once the cycle starts it runs ok. also if i cycle it using the sb then it runs ok. the boards have a 1989 date on them.
    Regards,

      hi guys, finally found the problem. it ended up being the managers control panel at control was conflicting with the otek board. I spoke to Graeme at tenpintec and he told me of a similar problem when the otek board was used with the amf liu. I disconnected the managers control and all is good now.

          Shame that you loose the instructomat functionality through the switch. The managers control circuit can be a sensitive area especially when the diodes are old and start failing.

          Have seen this issue where the lane A card in the LIU was causing the failure of the contactor to close. Isolating 5&6 in the amc plug removes the managers control circuit out the loop.

          Glad you got a fix for it.

            I spoke to Graeme at TenpinTec and he mentioned that the LIU was a problem back when O-Tek boards first starting appearing and we had more Accu Score systems around. We like to use the managers control switches at the counter here in Oz if possible as a safety device if someone ventures down the lanes then the machines can be shutdown quickly.
