    Replied to the thread S-JIHP: Sega JVS I/O Helper PCB.

    Yes and not, I have the Aliens Guns and they have an usb controller board which allow them to be connected to a regular PC. But, nothing stops you from connect some wires from the pots to the JVS Helper, and you are ready to go. Best regards.

    You're using the outlet for its intended purpose. But you put a monitor in there that doesn't fit the original cabinet design (that is having a monitor installed that doesn't require an isolation transformer). Since it turns out that this replacement…

    Quote from Report2Marty: “what I think is the isolated transformer (outlet inside the AWSD) ” The pics you attached don't show an isolating transformer. The outlet is just that, an outlet, nothing else. Can you take a pic showing the full cab…

    I posted about CRTs before, and I will say again that I am unfamiliar with them. I hope that if any part of my post is wrong, someone will correct me. That said, I would like to say that from looking at the schematic, both lines pretty much immediately…

    Quote from KaPH33n: “In that diagram it shows the monitor connected to Earth Ground via green wire with ring terminal. ” It looked to me like that was connected to the iso transformer, but I see now that it is just INCREDIBLY CLOSE TO the iso transformer.

    Most chassis have a range of input AC voltage they support. So likely 100 vs 120 is moot. However, look up the manual for your exact chassis before purchasing and hooking anything up. Some isolation transformers will have multiple pins that can output…

    Be careful when probing AC mains mate, all it takes is a slightly damaged leads to get a belt. Earth/ground and neutral and both connected in your switchboard (well assuming your wiring standards are the same as UK/AU) and yeah live to either or those…
