Preventing Injury and Damage

Preventing
Injury and
Damage

This section provides instructions for preventing electrical injury and protecting components from
ESD damage.

Prevent Shock and Begin any service procedure by completing the following steps to prevent electrical shock and/or
ESD electrostatic discharge (ESD):
1 Unlock and open the Main Door.
2 Power the game OFF at the power switch.
Figure 1 Power switch.

3 Fasten a resistive type (1 or 10 Meg) ESD wrist strap on arm and ensure that it makes good
skin contact, Figure 2 (A).
Figure 2 ESD Wrist Strap on arm.

4 Secure the clip end of the wrist strap to a ground braid on a game.
5 If one is installed, remove the Hopper to access the Power Entry Assembly.
WARNING: Disconnecting the game Power Supply Cord is the only means of disconnecting
the game from power.

16-022128-03

About this Guide: General Information

6 Disconnect the power supply cord from the Power Entry Assembly, Figure 3 (A).
Figure 3 Location of the AC INPUT plug.

7 If applicable, disconnect the Top Box line cord from the outlet.

Special Instructions Whenever accessing any printed circuit boards (PCBs) or components in direct contact with PCBs,
for PCBs including EPROMs, CompactFlash Cards, and PCB connectors, use the following procedure to
prevent ESD damage to sensitive components.

ESD: Opening the game and unplugging the Power Supply Cord defeats the grounding system on
the game, as the grounding pin on the Power Supply Cord ultimately connects the game to ground.
1 Verify that the game power switch is set to Off.
2 Verify that the ESD wrist strap is firmly secured to a game ground braid.
3 Reconnect the Power Supply Cord to the Power Entry Assembly.
4 Complete all necessary PCB or component handling steps.
5 If additional steps are required for this procedure, ensure the game power switch is still set to
Off, and disconnect the game Power Supply Cord before proceeding.

Weight

Base Game

251.6 lbs (114.12 kg)

Skid

25 lbs (11 kg)

CAUTION: Verify that any non-WMS game stand specifications meet this weight requirement
before mounting the game. Using inadequate game stands voids the WMS Warranty and may lead
to distortion of the game cabinet, including the inability to close and lock the Main Door.

Power Dissipation Power dissipation and BTU ratings in Table 1-3 lists the BB2. Current values for all machines are
based on a 120VAC configuration, with Bill Acceptor installed.
The British Thermal Units (BTUs) were calculated by using the following equation:
BTUs = 3.413 * voltage * current
Any increase in BTUs due to actual work performed (spinning Hopper motor) was neglected. The
BTU calculation for game play should be used when determining air conditioning requirements, as
Hopper payout occurs infrequently when compared to standby and play conditions.
