AS-2518-18 Rectifier Board
Bally logo

Often folks buy a new or used rectifier board and then when they get it, they realize that they have to hook it back up to the old wiring harness. If this is you, and you forgot to take notes or pictures before you removed your old board, then here you go. The photo below shows an original AS-2518-18 rectifier board connected to a factory wiring harness. As far as I know, the wire colors are the same for ALL AS-2518-18 applications.

Key:

E1 - Red 18 AWG - Transformer Lug 5 - Primary AC Hot
E2 - Yellow 18 AWG - Transformer Lug 1 - Primary Neutral
E3 - Red 20 AWG - Transformer Lug 2 - Solenoid Bus Hot
E4 - White/Red 20 AWG - Transformer Lug 6 - Solenoid Bus Neutral
E5 - Green 20 AWG - Transformer Lug 8 - Display High Voltage Hot
E6 - White/Green 20 AWG - Transformer Lug 10 - Display High Voltage Neutral
E7 - Blue 18 AWG (2 wires) - Transformer Lug 17 - GI Bus Hot
E8 - Black 18 AWG (2 wires) - Transformer Lug 18 - GI Bus Neutral
E9 - Orange 18 AWG - Transformer Lug 13 - Controlled Lamp Bus Hot
E10 - Green 18 AWG - Transformer Lug 14 - Controlled Lamp Bus Neutral
E11 - White 20 AWG - Transformer Lug 15 - 12V Input for 5-Volt Regulator Hot
E12 - White/Black 20 AWG - Transformer Lug 16 - 12V Input for 5-Volt Regulator Neutral

AWG = American Wire Gauge (18 = fat, 20 = skinny)
"E" solder pads are labeled on the top side of the circuit board
