They should be NPN... I replaced some on a similar Trident recently

If you want to bypass the sensors to test the machine or bypass them altogether because they're notoriously faulty, you can connect the top RED sensor wire to the black ground in the right side of the power distribution block. This will put voltage to zero and allow the press to index.

Also, the sensors on mine can be wired either way, PNP or NPN. It's a pretty dumb circuit and prone to failure from the beginning as one sensor in an untripped state serves as the ground to turn the second sensor on. So if one sensor is buggy or flaking out you can be sure it will mess up the secondary sensor and kill the indexer. I assumed they did this so they'd only have to have one input for the optical sensors on the main board rather than two. Whatever the reason it is bypassed now!

Musterbom,
Thanks for the info on the sensor wiring I haven't bought the sensors for my press yet but when they arrive this post will be a lot of help. In process of ordering replacing all stroke cylinders now... Once that done I will be moving on to sensors press is starting to get expensive all the little problem are adding up lol...

Thanks again

No problem. I guess what I'm saying is you really don't need to use the sensors at all. A lot of Anatol owners bypass them altogether. At the very least you can bypass them to get the machine running and then decide later if you want to purchase new ones and wire them in.

Yeah, the local guys with an Anatol here basically hung them up against the machine pointing at each other. They found that just leaning in to load a shirt was causing them to trip all the time.

Ok, That will be very annoying if they keep tripping while we are loading shirts. Musterbom is there way to bypass them by using a jumper wire? I'm a little confused by your pics, looks as if you have existing sensor wires to work with I don't have anything. I would hate to spend the money on them and not even use them. So I guess what I asking is there a way to bypass the sensors when you don't have any sensors to work with?

I think that is what he was showing you... but I'm not familiar with it exactly so I'll back up and let him explain it better.
