  • CS VS SS

    I hear good story's about solid state switches but I have never had a good one working in my place.
    I know good and bad story's about centrifugal switches and I will keep on using them because I don't have problems with them.
    In my opinion a SS is a dumb timer that does not know the speed of the motor.
    In my opinion the CS is smarter and will switch off if the motor is at the right speed.
    What's wrong with changing them every three years??
    Your opinions please, I feel like I'm from the stone age.....

    We use SS switches on our motors. Cent.'s work fine too but when they do go we put the switches in. We dont use the SS switches due to cent. problems or anything, they work and work pretty well. But solid state switches last longer so once a cent needs to be changed we replace it with a SSS. Just my $0.02 [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]
    All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

      I think its just personal preference. We also replace centrif. with SS as they go bad. The SS's seem to last as long as the centrif. In a Westinghouse motor you have the centrif. switch, the aux. switch and the centrif. mechanism. You can basically eliminate all three with the SS. Cost factor- the 2 switches in the motor cost around $35 total. The SS from grainger costs about $18.

        Maybe I'm the only one having problems with SS switches, I did try several brands but I don't trust them...........

          SS has too much coasting....go to relays on lane at a time....no coasting and they last for years......5 minute swap.

              I currently use the Tuffy Motor Start Relays from Stahls with GREAT success, just might be easier since Grainger is right next door.

                I have been using ss from Bowltronics now for about eight years. In that time I have had about three fail. I've run them on both GE &amp; West Combos &amp; BE. The ones that failed were fixed for free and back running the next day. They cost about $22 and are guarenteed for 2 years. One switch for both motors too, and they are easy to wire up. These along with their solid state contactors make for almost trouble free electrical operation of any motor.

                  Kat- Grainger part # is 6X550. They are the same relays that AMF used to sell in a kit. I don't have the catalog with me. It's a little square black relay. I believe they call it a potential relay. Made by GE.

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Many thanks. I wonder if it's the same thing that Stahls sends out. They look identical.

                      <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I am a Bowltronics fan......however I found their SS switch on the sweep would trip the klixon if there were 2 pins wedged in the flat gutter or if someone hit the sweep...........this happened on more than one lane andmore than one switch.
