  • Cycle idea

    We have 82-70's and frameworks. My idea is to piggy back off the alignment led on the camera trigger to trigger the ball cycle switch. First idea was a simple photocell monitor of the Led that would triger a relay and close the switch. Seems like it should work utilizing a basic circuit and eliminate the lite ball non-cycles. Any comments or suggestions?

    I know of other people who have tied into the Brunswick scoring triggering to cycle machines. They were successful in doing it. But they had problems in the long run.

    Just buy Bowltronics triggering and put it behind the sweep with no delay. You will not be sorry.

      Do you know what the specific problems were? It would make a nice low-cost solution and eliminate the problem for now.

        The photocell idea would indeed be non-intrusive to the bruns electronics. Use the Schmidt trigger circuits in the old bruns telefouls!

          be careful when tieing into other cicuits. they were built to handle certain loads. when adding to them current draw will change, along with possible impedence mismacthes.

            What kind of cameras do you have Vps? or CCd. the vps cameras have a built in trigger that Brunswick won't tell you about I learned about it from one of the installers.

              We have the CCd's.

                if it operates on DC (most circuits with LEDs do) then you want a high impedece resistor and a transistor to throw a relay to cycle the machine.

                make sure you put a reverse bias diode on the relay coil so it dosent fry the transistor.

                    well it went trough the ball detect and that was hooked up to the vps proccesor. the dip switches were on the camera itself. The only problem I saw with th system was no time delay so the ball detects had to be on the kick backs.
