  • Pin holder Question (GSX)

    Hey guys, newbie here. Well kinda, been lurking on the forums for a few years but now I'm desperate enough to post for some help.

    I have a pin holder that's giving me some grief. My #3 pin holder isn't detecting pins when they are loaded late. It detects the pin if the pin is ready and loaded in the station when the table loads, however if the pin loads late after the table has reset the standing pins and returns, it drops into the holder but the grippers don't close and it times out.

    I've swapped out the pin holder, adjusted the side to side of the holder to sit exactly below the station, I've adjusted the station to have the pin drop a bit higher into the holder, when that didn't work then I adjusted it to drop lower, adjusted table height, adjusted ABCD switch (timing was a bit off anyway), checked wiring behind pin holder to conduit and into Nexgen, etc. All to no avail. I just started at this center but it looks like the table harness is a newer Kegal harness so I am not inclined to think it's that. I'm still pretty new with these machines, and haven't really gotten to play around with the electronics so I don't even know where to start there other than checking the wiring.

    I'm sure it's something stupid and easy that I'm missing and I'm not seeing it, but any advice would be welcome.
    Thanks!

    The solenoid is activating from what I read. Did you check the continuity of the pin switch wire for #3 that runs from the holder to table harness?

      Good call NatChem. I was an idiot and put too much faith on a new looking harness. My head mechanic found that it was installed wrong and a wire was partially severed in the upper table harness. He gave me a good walk through of what to do, and I feel like a moron. Oh well, lesson learned.

        Don't worry about it. When you start putting yourself down, the whole process of troubleshooting becomes less fun! Glad it was resolved and best of luck learning these machines.
