  • spot solenoid

    i have a couple universal spot solenoids for my 82-70s. there 50-60 hrz. they will not work on my pinsetters, just wondering why? thanks for any help, dave

    Did you bench test the solenoid?

      How many wires?? I have seen some universals that had 3 wires, and you had to have the correct combination of the 2.

        I got a dormeyer, part 8956, solenoid. Connected the black wire to the white one so it should work for 220 Volts, but....when put power on nothing happens. erm, has this to do with 50/60 Hz ?

          It doesn't have anything to do with the supply frequency.

          I just realised how old the original post is.

          Still, how many terminals/wires has it got? 4?

            Aye, 2 terminals and two wires: a black and a white one. The resistance between terminal and wire is about 50 Ohms.

              Send it back to the shop if it doesnt work and get it replaced perhaps. Double check that it can run 230 volts and re-check wiring? test it on bench using mains power.

                Try this:

                You have two terminals - call them A and B.
                You have two wires - call them White and Black.

                Measure resistance (ohms) between:
                A and B - ?
                A and White - You've said this is 50ohm
                B and Black - You've said this is 50ohm
                A and Black - ?
                B and White - ?
                White and Black - ?

                  yes, thats correct:

                  A - white = 50 Ohm,
                  B - black = 50 Ohm.
                  all other posibility's are "no connection"

                  The old one i removed from the pinspotter was installed like this : mains power on A, white connected to black, and B to ground. Setting the coils in series so it should operate in 220V.
