Hi everyone, I've almost finished the re-draw of my Lady Luck schematic, but there's a block of text written in German that I need help with translating. Here's a pic of it off the original schematic. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Google translate doesn't help a great deal as this stuff is pinball specific.
Thanks, Mal

Google is your translator friend.

I'm no expert in german, but I know enough to follow some deutsch forums on car tuning and vehicle art.

Explanation:

Contact point* I on motor, switch position C,
switch button in position S.

1 x A = close 1 time
5 X B= open 5 times

*= contact point here refers to a typical electrical contact points on small motors, relays etc.

Thank you Pinasco. That's a better translation than what Google gave me.

How about this one? Schaltebenen? Google translator says Switching Levels. Does it mean switch stacks or something?

Literally it would translate to switch levels yes. But I have seen this term mainly used for what I would call "switch positions".

Here´s a switch with 3 switch levels (drei Schaltebenen) that comes from a pedal for a bass guitar

Switch positions...okay, thank you again Pinasko

For anyone who doesn't recognize it this looks like pretty standard Gottlieb Score Motor nomenclature. Compare it to this for example:
Gottlieb Score Motor (resized).jpg
The chart was redrawn but has essentially the same information. The diagram is just rotated 90 degrees.

The values in the table indicate how many switches there are of each type: A: normally open, B: normally closed, C: Make/Break.

On Gottlieb motors switches mounted in the 1A and 4A positions typically activate five times per 120 degrees while all the other switches activate just once.

Thank you for that info and pics Mark. My Lady Luck is Spanish but apparently it's made with mostly Gottlieb parts. Your top-down pic of the motor is basically identical to the drawing on my schematic. So are the other drawings for that matter, lol
