Thanks for the helpful responses gentlemen!! I read the schematic in PB101 as the grey line needs to be closest to the + terminal. Just out of curiosity, is there an ideal spot in the cabinet to place the shaker? I was going to put mine towards the back, probably under where the castle would be on MM. Cheers!
Hello all, just to clarify something... I'm using a Wolfsoft Dual H bridge for my shaker. Do I still need to solder a diode between the + and - terminals, if so will an IN4007 suffice? Hope so as it's all I have. Thanks :0)
Thanks for the reminder maxxsinner I wouldn't mind wiring up the white on the CREEs to use as a 'blibnder' with the knocker as in the guide. Just to check I understand - all the white LED connections, after the resistor, are connected together, then to the relay as on page 24 of the guide? Cheers again.
Thanks you very much for your replies gentlemen, I'm am understanding more and more about the 'black art' This really does help me. I think I'll stick to 450 mA for the CREEs as I value my epidermis Now I need to tackle soldering the daisy chain neutrals on the CREEs (gulp...).
Hello chaps. Thanks for posting the 'modular' installation pics, am going down that road to simplify things... most of the bits can then be assembled outside of the cab minimising pin-down time I would like some further advice on installing LEDs though from someone with electrical nounce. Hopefully someone can help with this idea... I'm installing 5 CREE MC-Es on top of my backbox. I would also like to install 2 CREE T6s at the top of the playfield to act as a strobe. One other possibility is to install a separate strobe, and instead run some weaker RGB LEDs in parrallel at the top of the PF. If I were to install the T6s, could I simply wire them in parrallel and power them with a coupler relay? Also how do I wire weaker LEDs in parallel with the CREEs? The LEDwiz has a 500ma limit. If I were to install 2 LEDs, do I need to install a resistor before each LED to keep the total amps < 500 ? Thanks for any offered help
I hope you don't mind me contacting you via PM, but I would really like your help with my cab build, specifically selecting the correct siderails. Cab thread just started here:
I'm looking to mount a 40" LCD as the playfield, but my current siderails are only about 35 mm deep. Thereore I'm looking for some deeper ones to cover where I need to cut into the cab.
I read in your thread that you bought yours from the following site. May I ask if they were the following rails which are the set right at the bottom of theis page? Are these about 56 mm deep?
Siderails Bally/Williams WPC - ArtNr. 1032 | Price: 37,90 €
Also did you space your 4 screws out of just put 2 near the backbox hinge and 2 near the flippers.
The original rails are a real bugger to remove, Williams must have used some really strong adhesive...
Many thanks for your help mate, Kris.
