These are instructions for adding an external power supply to a Stern SAM/Whitestar pinball machine that is switched on with the pinball machine. Overall, this is very easily done by tapping into the AC power going to the coin door for a bill acceptor. The reason you may want such a power supply is to drive high power consumption mods (e.g., a lot of LEDs), powered amplifier for upgrade sound, etc. If the power requirements are minimal, it is easy to use the power AUX port located near the front right of the pinball machine. The instructions are from a Stern TRON game with a couple of pinduinos driving ~300 addressable LEDs, which were drawing too much current and blowing the 5A circuit fuse.
