New Features

The Centipede™ game has several new parts.

Even if you are familiar with Atari games, you should note these important differences. The new parts are:

• Mini-Trak Ball™ Assembly. The widely used Trak Ball assembly has been redesigned. The basis for this compact, simplified design is a two-part molded plastic frame. Fewer parts in this control make servicing easier, and its very smooth action is designed for greater player accuracy.

• The circuitry has non-volatile memory for part of the high score table. This means that even if power is removed from the game, the three highest scores will permanently stay in memory. To erase these scores follow the instructions in Figure 6, Self-Test Procedure.

• To insure starting, the fluorescent light now includes a large grounded metal plate. In addition, the lampholder and ballast transformer used in this assembly are Underwriters Laboratories Listed and Canadian Standards Association Certified.

The addition of a foam pad on the rear access panel insures that the safety interlock switch will be completely closed when you lock this panel. Due to environmental factors, these panels can warp slightly, which could cause a switch to remain open.

Additional Improvements: The wiring harness has been redesigned so that signal and power wiring are now separated to provide ease of maintenance and troubleshooting. Second, all monitors used are UL-Recognized and CSA-Cer-tified, thus providing the most reliable and highest quality monitors available in the marketplace today.

In addition, the power supply chassis has been fitted with a metal bottom plate, making it a totally self-contained unit.

Fourth, the attraction panel and monitor shield are now made of tempered glass to facilitate cleaning and improve visibility.
