  • Zot foul unit manual

    Does anyone out there have or know where to obtain a manual for the Zot foul upgrade? REV: A0591. I just obtained these units second hand. I need to know what reflectors they originaly come packaged with. The ones I have are external and look ugly. Is there a neater way about it?

    Any decent 'retroreflective' reflector will work... they should be the same ones that are used in industrial applications.

    We have older ZOT infrared conversions for the Radaray, and I didn't like the reflectors that were on them, either... the external ones mounted on the narrow capping at the foul line, and were getting broken by balls hitting them.

    We got smaller reflectors (I think they were the little 3/4" self-stick ones you get at the auto parts store for cars and bikes), and we mounted them under the aluminum cap so they were just short of flush with the holes in the cap.

    The smaller reflectors made them a bit more difficult to get adjusted and accurate, but once they're locked down, they work well.

      Scruff, the external one's are the original that came with the infrared kit. You may want to try Brunswick reflectors, they are slightly smaller, and you may get them inside the small cover.

      I have read on this site where people are suggesting using Zot reflectors to replace the Brunswick reflectors because they have more reflection, but I did not like the Zot reflectors when I first put them in Bennetts Green Bowl, I sent some back because I could'nt get enough reflection ( I would try another reflector and get increased intensity ).

      Good luck, you may have to try other sources, I have seen reflective tape that has a high reflective property.

      always doing my best.

        Allen &amp; Bradley make a very excellent 1 1/4" round reflector which is idea for foul lights because it can sit under the small cover and not get damaged by the things that damage the outside of small covers. Its part no is 92-47.
