Hi.

I have acquired a show time which hasn't been used in a while, there is no power lead to the transformer and I have noticed that all the schematics of the earlier machines do not show connections to the transformer.

Can someone please let me have a diagram of the connections if they have one or draw me a sketch of the connections.

Should of said that I am in the UK so it will be a 240 volt supply.

Cheers.
Ian.

Hi mate,you should have a 240 to 110 transformer which normally sits under the playfield which your mains cable connects to,
then 110v is passed to the auto transformer in the head.
Although my Bounty can accept 240v directly to the head.(probably because it wasn't sold in the USA).

Hi Kev.

Thanks for the reply, you are right about the transformer under the playfield but it looks like the person before used it for the ball lift motor.

The transformer in the head is wired to all the fuses and the transformer under the playfield has 2 wires off one side connected to a 2 pin round plug which connects to a 2 pin socket just above the transformer in the head and 2 wires off the other side of the transformer to near the ball lift motor and those 2 wires have a choccy block on them.

Cheers.
Ian.

Hi Ian,I don't think it's anything to do with the ball lift motor as this runs at 50v which can only come from the head unit.
Without seeing it I'm pretty sure that the block is your 240v power lead connection point.
Before connecting it I would disconnect the head unit then check you have about 110v on the output terminals of the mains transformer when connected.
I suggest you use a qualified electrician!

Hi Kev.

I have taken a photo of both sides of the playfield transformer and the wires with the choccy block go to a connection what looks like 220 and I cant make out what the other wire is connected to.

On the other side of the transformer it is clearly marked 115 which must be 115 volts.

Does the live wire go to the 220 connection and the nuetral go to the other connection.

Should the incoming wires (240 volt) be 2.5 twin and earth.

Cheers.
Ian.

Hi mate,yes that's right,but you need to replace the supply cables altogether with max.1.5mm 3 core flex,any bigger and you won't get a 13 amp plug on the end.

"lofty"🙂
This drawing may help, although it is for my Bally Bikini, I believe most of the transformers are the same.
The numbers 1,2 ,6 etc are the numbers actually printed on the transformer!
Over here in the colonies we are on 120Vac.
You will need a 220VAC job if you are on 220VAC, regardless the secondary(s) voltage will be as shown.
