The EM Score Keeper, an Electromechanical Pinball Mod

Item description

This kit allows any pinball machine to save your high scores directly to the pinball machine, using the pin's own flipper buttons and coin return button to set your high scores. No soldering. No re-wiring. No stress. It's simple, inexpensive, and easy to install.

This was created originally for EM pinball machines (because they couldn't save high scores) but there are other pins that could use this as well.

It can be installed in ANY pinball machine. Almost all EM pinball machines have small openings on their aprons (behind the instruction cards) for the wires to go through.

How to Install:

Included in this kit:
1 x OLED (BLUE or WHITE text options--decide at checkout)
1 x Microprocessor w/ Cable
1 x White, Long Input Cord w/ Easy Disconnect
1 x Set of Display Card Inserts
1 x USB Mini B Cord
1 x USB Wall Charger
5 x Adjustable Cable Clips w/ Optional Screws
2 x Leaf Switches with Plastic Insulator
4 x 1 ½” Leaf Switch Screw
1 x Microswitch
1 x Outlet

It registers high scores up to 999,999. It saves 1st - 5th place scores. If you need it to register scores up to 9,999,999 I can program it for that. Please notify me if you’d like that change.

Located in Lakeville, MN, but I can also ship!

NOTE: If your pinball machine does not have a coin return button, we have additional 1/2" metal push buttons you can install. Please contact me before or directly after ordering.

--For Home Use Only--
In these old pinball machines, EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) was not regulated like it is today. The EMI can cause the display to freeze temporarily. By turning the pinball machine off and on, it will reset the microprocessor and fix the issue. This usually happens after long periods of play.
