Marantz Vorsetzer Solenoid Voltage
By Brian Thornton

Hi all,  I have just acquired a Marantz Vorsetzer unit.  I wish to
modify it for my roll arranging and transposing purposes.  I would
like to know the maximum voltage and amperage for the solenoids that
play the keys.

Many thanks in advance,
Brian Thornton [delete ".geentroep" to reply]

 [ I recall that the peak applied solenoid voltage in the Pianocorder
 [ is 180 volts.  The safe continuous D.C. voltage is much less, so
 [ that the coil doesn't overheat.  -- Robbie
