One Sweep Drop Module is required per pair of lanes
  • The Auto Sweep Drop Module (ASDM) drops the sweep when the lane is turned off at the end of a game. This prevents bowlers from continuing to bowl balls with the effect of overloading the pit area. This will save much of the machine damage that can occur when the Pinsetter is started up with a pit full of balls.
  • When the lane is turned on the next time, the G Switch will sense that the sweep is down, and take the machine through a normal cycle to set pins for the new bowlers.
  • The action of the ASDM can be bypassed at any time by flipping the Rear Switch to the OFF position.
  • The ASDM bracket has been designed to make it easy to mount the ASDM onto the front panel of the Pinsetter without having to drill new holes. Simply loosen the appropriate panel bolts, slide the ADSM and bracket into place and re-tighten.
  • The ASDM bracket also has space enough to mount a LaneMinder Cutout-2 Module (if fitted).
  • The ASDM has an input for the LaneMinder Cutout-2 Module - this is so the sweep will not drop in the event that the Pinsetter is turned off by the LaneMinder. Having all the sweeps drop to guard would not be desirable if a person has strayed down the lanes near the fronts of the machines.
  • 12 month warranty
  • One ASDM runs a pair of lanes
  • Quick field installation

The ASDM kit includes
  • ASDM circuit board mounted in ABS plastic box with clear lid (as shown in photo above)
  • Pre-made cable harness and all required tap-splice wire joiners
  • Rear Switch Module (to disable ASDM function when required for machine and lane maintenance)
  • Mounting bracket

The larger box is the ASDM. The smaller box is the LaneMinder Cutout-2. This bowling center,(Strike CCW) has both systems. This centre chose to mount the modules directly onto the front panel rather than using the supplied mounting bracket.

To run ASDMs, it is not neccessary to have the LaneMinder lane safety system installed.

The right side of NexGen box shows sweep solenoid cable for the odd lane has been cut and a 2 way plug has been added to both new ends. The new plugs route the sweep solenoid cable through the ASDM.
The left side of the NexGen box also has the sweep solenoid cable cut and new plugs fitted. The plugs are fitted in such a way that the brown and white cables can be plugged back together if at any time it is desired to remove the ASDM.
