Electrification Kit Quality

The system I sell is far superior to the QRS system for a number of reasons. The primary reason involves the sensing device (a specially designed microswitch) and the dual pump speed controller. Together, they work to reduce the level of the vacuum during the Rewind cycle. And, being adjustable, allows the user to set the speed of Rewind to a reasonable speed. Without such a capability, the full amount of vacuum used to operate the entire player system is applied to the air motor during Rewind, and as a result, the air motor spins at a terrifically fast speed. This is dangerous to the air motor and more especially could easily damage (rip or tear) the music roll.

The second reason that I believe the kit I sell is superior involves the pump motor. Unlike the QRS motor, which is a single impeller, 110VAC motor, the motor in my kit is has dual impeller and the motor is wound for 220 VAC. Operating such a motor at the same voltages as the QRS motor produces a much higher vacuum level, and because of that fact, the motor in my system can be operated at a much lower voltage. The benefits of this are; (a) less motor noise, (b) increased longevity, and (c) less current flow through the controller (the diac and triac used to regulate the voltage).

The third reason involves the electronic components in the controller. Most simply put, they are purposely tougher than they need to be by about 100%. Here again, this increases longevity because the components don't have to work so hard.

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
