Arcooda Pedal Assembly: Opto Vs. Microswitch

  • 8th February, 2024

We are thrilled to announce that our Gun Pedal assembly products are available for sale, offering four distinct versions. These include the opto version with a 4-pin wiring configuration, the microswitch version with a 3-pin wiring setup, and exclusive Arcooda versions for both.

Wondering about Opto and Microswitch? These represent two distinct methods through which arcade machines interpret and execute specific actions. Pedals are crafted using either of these technologies, ensuring that an action is triggered when the pedal is pressed. It's crucial to match your pedal with the switch type present in your arcade machine.

Let's delve into the specifics:
Opto and 4 Pin Harness:
• This trigger type employs light or optics; an action is registered when the light source is obstructed.
• Commonly found in games like Time Crisis 4 but applicable to various machines.
• Recognize it by the 4-pin harness.

Microswitch and 3 Pin Harness:
• This trigger type relies on the pedal's force to physically press down on a switch.
• Most frequently found in Time Crisis 1, 2, and 3 machines.
• Identified by the 3-pin harness.

Determining your machine's connection requirements is straightforward – just inspect where the harness connects and count the number of holes present.

Additionally, we offer Arcooda Versions for each trigger type pedal, specifically designed for home users. These versions feature a front LED lighting panel and strip LED lighting underneath, allowing you to synchronize the pedal with your existing light show or add a touch of flair to your arcade cabinet.

The gun pedal assemblies are available for plug and play for Tempest arcade machines, any Namco machine that uses gun pedal assembly, 1UP gun shooter cabinets, and your light gun shooter home gaming or arcade machine.

Get ready to elevate your arcade experience with our versatile and customizable Gun Pedal assembly. If you have any questions or need further information, feel free to reach out!
