Awhile back i developed a board to be used to control shaker motors on WPC games and stern games regardless of whether the game supported them originally. The board allowed a wide range of standard pinball voltage inputs (ac and dc) to effectively control a 12v device. It also allowed the device to be turned on from a single ground signal for an adjustable amount of time, not just for the time the signal was active. This allowed a wide range of uses above the initial shaker idea and one that i didn't realise would be beneficial to people wanting to run other types of mods and devices. Beacons, Light strips, Motors, Flashers etc etc

The initial run of boards has sold old, but now i'm thinking about another run of this boards for a wider use after it was mentioned to me as something people are wanting.

So the question is, would you be interested in this product ? Likely price is £40 plus postage.

count me in for 2

Can you explain how it will works and how to connect it?

- Which Trigger Input can I use (Flasher, Coil or Insert Lamp) or did I have to build a adapter to grab the Input from the "Boardconnection"?
- Is there a function to control how long the shaker shakes when its triggered by flasher?

Hope you can give me some input how to use this board.

Thank you

Hi, Thanks for the post. The board is designed to control a 5v-12v device from a range of inputs ,DC or AC and be activated for an adjustable amount of time (via an onboard pot) from a single ground pulse. The ground pulse can be taken from any drive in the game you like.

For shaker control you'd probably just jumper the voltage input to be straight through from source and not use the voltage adjustment. The activation time is adjustable between 0.5 sec and 5 secs roughly

Demo Video of the standard board controlling a BIG motor! Watch the pulse time be adjusted by the onboard pot and also the green led show when the output is on.

Recap that these are £40 inc vat plus postage for an assembled and tested board.
