  • Rake switch vector plus

    A2 machines with vector plus scoring, the rake switch on most of the machines have to be open for the ball detect to work but I have a few machines that require the rake switch to be closed for the ball detect to work. I'm trying to figure out why they are not all the same and what I can check to see why some are backwards...where does the actual signal come from to cycle the machine ? The relay on the camera board ? Any help would be great I forgot to mention the TDMs are Removed

    I think that some scoring systems just need to see a toggle, be it from open to close or visa versa.

      We will assume you are using relays for TDM, check the way they are wired from the machine that requires open to the machine that requires closed. You may find the wires switched around a little bit, which may cause a polarity issue.
