INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS 1. It is recommended that a professional sign company be hired to install the scoreboard (see drawings). Eversan recommends a minimum depth of 6 ft. and a minimum diameter of 2 ½- ft. pylon for each I-beam. 2. Calculate the wind loading by standard formula for height and dimension of sign. Dimension of the sign is 8FT. High x 18FT. Wide. Approximate weight is 400lbs. NOTE: Check local codes for your area. 3. Prepare and sink 2Ea. I-beams 10FT apart. Minimum I-Beam recommendation W 10 x 15 conforming to ASTM A36, align with plumb line and careful measurements. 4. Determine height of lowest point for scoreboard, minimum recommendation 8FT. Mark and align on all mounting beams parallel to visual ground sighting. 5. Drill and bolt (5/16 bolts) or weld provided bottom Z-brackets to the posts as shown in the installation diagram. 6. Assemble the scoreboard on the ground and test according to the instructions. Make sure to connect connectors between the top, bottom and each side of the scoreboard. 7. Lift scoreboard set onto Z bracket. Secure temporarily with a clamp. 8. Place the top Z-brackets on the board and install in the same manner as the lower. 9. The board is now ready to be wired. Wireless systems must have the antenna installed to the right of Power Supply cover, on the front of the scoreboard. Just screw antenna into connector provided. INSTRUCTIONS FOR WIRING 1. Determine 120VAC entrance and run conduit to pre-installed electric box on back of scoreboard (see diagram). 2. The scoreboard draws 5 amp, 600 watts, but requires its own circuit breaker. Eversan, Inc. recommends using a 10-amp, GFCI breaker. CAUTION: Cabled System Only The data cable is a pre-wired, 2 conductor shielded, 22GA stranded cable. Any cable splicing should be color-coded or failure of the computer power supply will result. Continuity of the shield is essential in reducing possible damage due to lightening. Electrical Specifications: Electric outlets for scoreboards are always on a “clean” unused, switched breaker box. Pay close attention to the power source and connections. It is recommended that a key-switch or switched breaker box be used to turn off the system at the end of use each day. The scoreboard should always be powered down when not in use. Power up Sequence: 120VAC Operation (Cabled System) 1. Plug the control console into the scoreboard using the cable provided. Any of the 2pin connectors on the control console can be used. The connector for the scoreboard is located on the back (see diagram). 2. Power up the scoreboard using 120VAC,connection on back of scoreboard (see diagram). 3. The scoreboard will now go through diagnostics. Each digit will show a dash and then starting at the minutes each digit will show an 8 and then go blank. The scoreboard will then stay blank until the control console is turned on. 4. Turn the control console on using the rocker switch located on the upper left side.
