CREATING THE WALLBOX PLAYLIST
The Wallbox Adapter uses a playlist for song selections. The name of the
playlist also contains the wallbox type and options. Th e first two letters of the
playlist name start with “WB”, then from the Wallbox List, enter the digit for your
wallbox model. If you want to add features or options, enter the Option List
letters.
In the example, the playlist name “WB3S” indicates a Seeburg 3W1 wallbox is
attached and the Short period (4-minute) Autoplay feature is turned on.
To create a playlist using iTunes, click File | New Playlist
untitled playlist will appear, change the name. If you make a mistake, double-click
the playlist name and retype.
The order of songs in the playlist are the same order used for the wallbox title
strips. The first song is the top of the first title strip, usually A1 or song number
1, the next song is the bottom. The third song is the top of the next title strip and
so on. In other words, all odd numbered songs are at the top, even numbered
songs at the bottom.
Some wallboxes use title strips with sequential letters such as A1, B1, C1 & D1.
Others use sequential numbers as A1, A2, A3 & A4 or buttons and pages with
song numbers. The wallbox adapter automatically translates the wallbox
selection to the playlist and title strip order.

Function Description
C
Continuous Autoplay
If no songs have been selected to play, the wallbox adapter will automatically select a random song. If songs are
selected while the autoplay song is playing, those selections will be played after the end of the autoplayed song.
D
Debug Mode
When a wallbox selection is made, the iPod remains in user control mode and starts the song play. This is used to
manually check what song number is being played for a wallbox selection number. Song plays are not stopped.
H
50Hz Operation
This is used in some countries where the power line frequency is 50 hertz. This usually causes the 60 hertz wallbox
selectors motor to run a little slower.
L
Long Autoplay
If no wallbox selections have been made for a period of 20-minutes, the wallbox adapter will automatically select a
random song to play.
S
Short Autoplay
If no wallbox selections have been made for a period of 4-minutes, the wallbox adapter will automatically select a
random song to play.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Symptom
Possible Cause
After the wallbox adapter is powered up, the iPod seems to
be continuously changing screens.
The wallbox playlist was not found.
The playlist name letters are not in upper-case.
When selections are made on the wallbox, no songs are
played.
Wrong wallbox type was selected.
No wallbox signals are being received.
Defective adapter. (see ADAPTER TEST below)
After a wallbox selection was made, the wrong song was
played.
Wrong wallbox type was selected.
Wallbox signal is erratic. (see TECH NOTE below)
Use the (D)ebug option in the playlist name to verify.
Videos do not play.
(Applicable to the video iPod only)
Wrong digit numbers to the Movies list in playlist name.
No videos in the Movies list.
Song name was not $nn. (nn = video position # in Movies)
Videos do not start from the beginning.
(Applicable to the video iPod only)
The “Remember playback position” box is checked.
Using iTunes, click on Movies in library, right click the video
name, click Get Info then the Options tab. Uncheck the box.
ADAPTER TEST
The test mode is used for checking the performance of the wallbox adapter. To enter test mode …
1)
2)
3)
4)
Disconnect the wallbox adapter wires from the wallbox
Change the wallbox playlist name to just WB
Touch a 9-volt battery across the adapters’ wallbox wires
Song number 5 should play
TECH NOTE
Electrical pulses transmitted by the wallbox are
generated by a contact arm rotating on a selector
disc containing contact points. When these
contacts become gummed up and corroded, the
wallbox may not make the proper selection.
Occasionally, these contacts require cleaning.
They can be cleaned with a cloth saturated with
isopropyl alcohol. Do not use emery cloth or
sandpaper as this may remove the plating.
On really worn wallboxes, where basic cleaning
doesn’t seem to cure the problem, you may have
successful results by using a low abrasive polish,
such as “Scratch Out” or “Brasso”. This will make
the contact surfaces shiny and smooth.
Wallbox Wiring Diagrams
CAUTION: Do not attempt to hook up a wallbox power supply if you are not familiar with
electrical wiring, consult with a qualified person or an electrician. Do not leave any wires
exposed, always use wire-nuts or electrical tape on all connections. Improper wiring can result
in a fire or shock hazard.
