A ramp that can be set up on a bowling alley to launch a bowling ball or other sized ball down the alley is requested. An electrical device to push the ball off the top of the ramp activated from a low voltage switch is needed so persons with disabilities can cause the ball to roll.
The ramp is constructed from 1/2 inch plywood. A Solenoid actuator is located at the top of the ramp to push the ball down the ramp. The Solenoid runs off of 4 D cell batteries. The Solenoid may be purchased from the internet at www.allelectronics.com, part number DLA-1.
RCRV designer is Lester Haerther, and was requested by GWAEA. The project was begun Jun 20, 2003 and completed Jun 20, 2003.
