P. Traps L. L. C.
or Control Circuit
G.P. Traps utilize low DC voltage to release the targets.
This adds an element of safety to the operator (or trapper)
who may be asked to throw targets in wet conditions.
at release cord socket:
Volt models, 18 Volts DC
Volt models, 12 Volt DC
No matter which G.P. Trap
you have selected, out of the control box is an 18-3 SJ cord
with socket on the end. The socket is wired as follows:
Switch lead or green wire:
connected to ground lug on socket.
Low voltage positive (+)
or black wire: connected to
terminal in socket immediately next to the ground lug
terminal. Or if you look at the face of the socket, it is
female receptacle indicated by 250. See
negative (-) or white wire: is connected to terminal
farthest away from ground lug. Or if you look at the face of
the socket, it is the female receptacle that is opposite of
250 or in some cases indicated by 502. See figure.
If you are
using release cord that is provided by G.P. Traps all you
have to do is connect the plug with the socket and push the
button on the yellow handle to release target.
If you choose
an after market release system such as Ventriloquist or Long
Range, it is very important to wire system correctly. It is
best to contact a G.P. Traps Representative directly for
Black wire: Low voltage positive (+)
White wire: Low voltage negative (-)
Green wire: Switch lead
The black is
always hot. The green, when touched with the black completes
the circuit starting machine and throwing target. The white
is important in the operation of release systems requiring
low DC voltage. Most after market release systems will
require all three wires to operate.
Legrand Plug for long range remote release.
