Recoil guns are shipped without recoil power supply.
The recoil power is routed via the connecting cable and the power supply needs to have a connector with outer diameter of 5.5mm and inner of 2.1mm.
The ideal voltage is 36 Volts. 24 Volt supplies will also work but the recoil power will be reduced by approx 20%.
The power supply needs to have a current capacity of 2 amps or greater. If you use a 4 amp supply this will give maximum power. Above 4 amps will work but give no power advantage.
We have tested this 3A supply from an Ebay vendor and it gives stronger recoil than some 4A supplies (link might be subject to change and is a UK link, contact vendor for US and other locations): http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/-/262181938884
The pictures below show the cable connection and an example supply. This type of power supply is often available on Ebay.

FULL OPERATION AND CONFIGURATION INSTRUCTIONS
First, mount the LED bar on the top of the monitor using the adhesive pads. Note if you wish you can remove the casing from this unit for installation in an arcade cabinet. See the Aimtrak Module instructions for this.
Plug the gun into a USB port and ensure the LED PCB is also plugged into a USB port.
Movement of the gun should cause the mouse pointer to move. Its as simple as that! At this time the pointer may not move to the edge or may go off the edge and bounce to the other side. This is normal as the gun is not yet calibrated.
