Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, etc.

Finally, success: my Electrodart is now working (took just 53 years). !!THUMBSX2!! I have just posted my (final?) Rev E schematics and updated "manual" in the RESOURCES section: Electrodart Main Schematic (my Rev E) This work was based on the earlier excellent work of Slotalot and OperatorBell. This...

Re: Electrodart Main Schematic (my Rev E)

OK. Here are probably my final versions of schematics for my Electrodart. I had to replace the left hand uniselector and had to change its winding coil to suit my 24v supply.I have also posted the updated version of the "manual" that describes the operation of the Electrodart as well as the details ...

Re: Uniselector wanted

I did consider using a 50v Power supply. You could get a laptop-type 50 volt PSU from EBay for about £10 and use BOTH 24 and 50 volt power supplies and "steering diodes". Alternatively, you could try to use ONLY a replacement 50v PSU. I did consider this but it also seemed quite an inelegant solutio...

Re: Uniselector wanted

I believe the Siemens uniselectors were nominally about 24 volt whilst the GEC uniselectors were nominally about 50 volt. So they are not really interchangeable except if you take the original coil windings off and replace them with the right number of turns of the correct and different diameter coi...

Re: Uniselector wanted

OK. There's good news and bad news. I finally bit the bullet and rewound the 50v GEC 8 way uniselector to work from my Electrodart 24 volt system. It turns out that (for me at least) 2070 turns of 0.22mm wire can be replaced with 1040 turns of 0.31mm wire. This steps 50v down to 24v whilst keeping t...

Re: Uniselector wanted

Stuart, Earlier photo attached showing the 2 (black-faced) Siemens uniselectors. This was part-way through the rewiring. The machine had been cannibalised and had much of the wiring missing/damaged. I used your wiring diagram to try to work out how it should have been wired (Thank you!). I have uplo...

Re: Uniselector wanted

Hi,
Did you have any luck getting hold of a Siemens uniselector? It turns out that I could really do with one of these as well.....for the same reason! I have finally found the real reason that my Electrodart was scrapped.

Yours hopefully,
G :(

Re: Electrodart Main Schematic (my Rev C)

OK. Here is an updated version D of the main schematic. The major change is that Relay 6 and associated components have been moved to correspond to my actual wiring. My machine is wired more like Slotalot's MK1 schematic rather than the more conventional and elegant looking MK2. (with respect to RL ...

Re: Roto-Pool, Roto-Fruit, Rotolite, Electrodart, Bingola, e

Hi again, In case it helps, I have just posted my electrodart schematics in the resources section: Electrodart Main Schematic (my Rev C) These owe much to the earlier efforts of "Slotalot" and "Operator Bell". I will update them if/when I find any errors. I am about half way through completely rewir...

Electrodart Main Schematic (my Rev C)

OK it's been a while... but attached are my wiring diagrams for my Electrodart. I am in the process of rewiring it so it is possible it will be updated if/when errors are found. This electrodart is assumed to be quite early as it has the smaller rounded chrome payout cup and is switchable between 2d...
