This board replaces the often-unreliable Path of Adventure opto sensor board. It brings three major enhancements:
1) Optical gating, which significantly reduces the power needed to run the board, and greatly extends the life of the opto transmitters.Our board takes less than 5% of the power of the original, so it will not suffer from heat damage.
2) Buffered output, increasing the reliability of the opto. No need to find special optos.
3) Scan lamp, which glows medium to show that the column scan (from the auxiliary power driver board in the head) is working. You can see the scan lamp location, without having to remove the Path of Adventure.
We also have a 12V header option, for plugging in game enhancements such as LEDs. This is for experimenters only.
