I had my first paying customers that I have seen today but the only problem was the Water Wizard did not work right. The gantry boom would not go down during the wash and the wash would stop before the triple foam function.
About the problem: The Telco PA11B303T “magic box” works with the transmitting and receiving safety eyes located on the gantry and the cans on the front of the gantry. When the gantry safety eyes do not read a car the unit will not drop the boom, which was my problem. But the real problem was my Telco magic box when I switched the boxes the signal indicators were not lit and would follow the box. So I am going to over night a new magic box to get my automatic to work again.
I am having a problem with my undercarriage staying on for only 6 seconds when it should stay on for 30 seconds. So the culprits are the entry banner eyes, what is weird is the eyes are giving 2 pulses when the eyes are blocked once. I swapped the eyes with the front treadle eyes and the undercarriage worked perfectly.
The Water Wizard uses the same Banner eyes for the front (treadle) and the back (entry, undercarriage). These eyes are in pairs with one receiver and a super duper laser emitter. The Banner emitter is the SM306EQ and the receiver is the SM30SN6RQ.
William replaced the “home” prox today. The gantry was passing the “home prox target” (which is under the prox) and hitting the end of the rail. So this is an easy prox to troubleshoot because the unit will just stop and be at the end of the track. While William was installing the sensor he did have to adjust it to make it closer to the target because the gantry would miss the target and hit the end of the rail. While reading the specs on the inductive sensor you have only 15mm sensing range, so this was our problem.
Again: The Jim Coleman model number is 6626 and the Turck model number is Ni15U-EM18WD-AN6X-H1141 id number is M1634835 . If you want to look at all the Water Wizard parts for some reason check out this.
I had to install the top of the entry unit because I was stupid and paid the block guy all of his money already. It was not as bad as I thought it would be, but it also does not look as good as it could look. I am going to paint the whole thing blue I think.
William replaced the gantry “end of track” proximity sensor along with the “lower boom prox”. The “end of track” prox tells the machine that the unit has traveled to the end of the track. If this prox is bad you will know because the gantry will not move but still run though a wash normally. The second prox replaced tells the “wash boom” when to stop the boom so it will not hit the end of its track. If this prox is bad the boom will be lower then normal and probably be pressure washing the ground. Both the sensors are located on the passenger side of the gantry.
This type proximity sensor used above is used in many locations in the Water Wizard. The Jim Coleman model number is 6626 and the Turck model number is Ni15U-EM18WD-AN6X-H1141 id number is M1634835 . If you want to look at all the Water Wizard parts for some reason check out this.
