  • Microprocessor controlled
  • Strong 3mm steel mounting base to protect unit
  • Quick field installation - plug-in modular design
  • Breakout (connection) box mounts on curtain wall
  • High quality IR units integrated into main unit which mounts on wide capping
  • Uses reflectors rather than wired receiver units on far side of lane
  • Time delay to trigger is determined by ball speed:
    FAST BALL = short delay
    SLOW BALL = longer delay
  • LED status indicators
  • 12 month warranty
  • Operates on 12Vdc. Power supply is available separately. Several units can be run from one power supply.

  • If the beam is broken for an extended time, the machine will not trigger - this is a safety feature to reduce the risk of a person being hit by sweep. This feature also means that your lane machine will not be hit by the sweep if the machine is still running.
