  • 90 ball detector position

    evening all,

    today i I moved the ball detectors to behind the down sweep to remove the intermittent issue with the bumpers triggering the lanes.
    Everything went well put the detectors into mode 1 and it works a treat...... until I run the sweep on manual mode. After I run it back to zero the pinsptter cycles. Is there something I can do to prevent this from happening? I can’t think of how to prevent this so this is why I’m passing it to you for some thought and pondering.

    Cheers,

    Peter

    The ball detector needs to be set for zero delay. Not sure what you mean by mode 1

      In the manual it states there is mode 1 for no delay and mode 2 has 7 time delays. I’ve got the detector heads dipswitches at 1 on, 2 on & 3 on as stipulated in the manual. If I didn’t have it set correctly it would be continuously cycling.
      It works perfectly until I go to sweep the decks to do my lanes and the lane cycles over

        I've had the same issue that pops up at times. However I found if I hold the sweep run button down until the sweep gets physically back to zero it rarely will recycle.

          I was playing around with it yesterday and it seems to be happy not cycling if I wipe the decks by pushing the sweep reverse button, but I’m not entirely happy doing that.

            Peter, any chance of moving the detectors forward some so the sweep doesn't trigger them?
            There! Try to NOT work now!

              It might run out into the back of the downsweep. It’s no biggie as my lane machine is a summit so I’m not spraying to clean lanes. It’s just more of an inconvenience to be honest.
