    Re: Bowltronic motor control units

    We have them on 74 out of 158 lanes and will do 32 more this summer.I love them....the main thing to keep in mind is the trainning of all personal that just because the pinsetter is not running doesn't mean it is off. I tell all the guys to always consider the pinsetter in a standy mode, and that it is never safe to work unless you have it cut off yourself.We have to do this anyway for our Frameworx house because they "time out " anyway if nobody bowls in 2 minutes.

    We have had them on nearly 2 years with no problems at all.

      40 lanes and 8 died on me BUT...at least they don't keep running when bowlers just sit down for a half hour or so.Get the ones that fit into the electrical boxes,not the big klunky ones that mount to the wire channel!

        We have installed 42 units 2 years ago. We have had 2 failures in a center that has 120 volt pinsetters which causes the motor to draw more amps. Bowl Tronics claims the extra amps should have no effect and replaced those units at no cost because of the two year warranty. Both centers feel that they help on power savings, and are very useful with open bowling, birthday parties, etc. We know it saves on power and does not cause motor problems because of the triac switching of amperage.

            One of the best things made for Brunswick pinsetter. Pays for itself in no time due to the lack of wear and tear on many parts while the machine is in its shut down mode. I've seen machines left on for hours by desk people that "forgot" to turn them off. With the kit...no wear and tear. Just a little electricity used to keep the coils pulled in and a light bulb on. We are still installing them at my place...should be finished by the end of the year.

                The PS1-Kit is 100 dollars. (US) That is the only one I've bought. The kit mounts inside the electrical box with a twisted pair that runs to the gear box. Very neat installation. The other device...PS1...mounts under the wire channel and is very "tacky"...and you know how I hate "tacky"...lol
