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 painted the entry unit today with primer which took forever. The Olympic Sealzall was like paste even though it is water based.
I programmed my IDX X-10 coin acceptor to accept tokens today (in my Hamilton entry unit). It is really not that bad; just check out IDX’s crappy website at http://www.idxinc.com/learn.htm to lean how.
Wow, what a good first day! I got $5 (or more) and 2 magnets!
William made me do all the maintenance on the automatic today and we had to repair some low pressure fittings on the Water Wizard boom.
Well, the first non-paying customer! A guy that comes around the carwash all the time was the first person.
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.
