Naden Scoreboard Instructions


CONTROL ENTRY PROCEDURES

In general, in the following procedures, pressing a function key by itself increments or decrements the corresponding field by 1.

To set a field to some specific number, use the following key-sequence:

  1. Press “ENTER” key
  2. Press “DIGIT” key as required
  3. Press function key

To increment the field by some number, use the following key-sequence:

  1. Press “PLUS” key
  2. Press “DIGIT” key as required
  3. Press function key

To decrement the field by some number, use the following key-sequence:

  1. Press “MINUS” key
  2. Press “DIGIT” key as required
  3. Press function key
  4. The digit keys are all those on the digit part of the control console. They include the keys from 0-9, the “/” key, and the “:” key.

The digits are displayed in the staging area as they are pressed. Digits are prompted by a flashing block [] character in the leftmost character of the staging area. New digits appear at the flashing block and the flashing block moves one character to the right. If a + or - key is pressed before the digits, a + or - appears as the rightmost character in the staging area.

When the maximum number of digits is entered, the flashing [] no longer appears to prompt for a new key. Instead, all the entered digits flash. This indicates that no more digits may be entered. Only the “CLEAR” key or a valid function key may be pressed. Any other key causes the “INVALID KEY” error message to appear.

In the event that setting, adding to, or subtracting from a field caused it to grow too large or too small, the operation will terminate and the “TOO LARGE” or “TOO SMALL” error message flashes on the first line of the display. After a few seconds, if no further key is pressed, the display returns to showing the game status.

If an invalid key is pressed at any time in one of these operations or while the display is simply showing the status, then the message “INVALID KEY” or a more descriptive message flashes on the first line of the control display. This message alternates with the normal status display on that line. After a few seconds, if no further key is pressed, the display returns to showing the status.

At any time, the “CLEAR” key may be pressed. This key cancels any digits entered in the staging area and returns the console display to simply showing game status. 7

HOCKEY ELAPSED TIME DISPLAY

In the game of hockey, the time counts down from 20 minutes, but the game time for registering penalty times and time of goals scored counts up from zero.

SCORES

  • Some scoreboards will show scores up to 99, others will show up to 199
  • The entry procedure is the same.
  • On the control console, the HOME and GUEST sides each have their own “SCORE” key which of course should be used as such
  • Pressing the “SCORE” key once will increase the score by 1

To correct or enter a specific score, for example, we want to show 37 in the Home score section.

  1. Press the “ENTER” key
  2. Press the “3” key
  3. Press the “7” key
  4. Press the Home “SCORE” key

For corrections, use the same procedure.

Scoretec uses 2 ways of showing periods.

    1. Four period lights.

        These can simple be switched on by pressing the “PERIOD” key one, two, three or four times.

    2. Larger boards have a digital period display.

        The entry and/or correction procedure is exactly the same as explained under “SCORE”.

TIME OUT

Our larger hockey board (Model 770 and up), are equipped with light indicators to show “Time Out” for each side.

To activate the “Time Out” light, simply press the “Time Out” key.

To de-activate the light, press the same key again.

SHOTS ON GOAL

Shots on goal are displayed on hockey scoreboards model 770, 770A, 781 SOG, and 782 SOG.

Two digits are displayed for each Home and Guest side.

Entry and/or correction procedures are exactly as explained under the section “SCORES”.

PENALTIES

  • The “PENALTY” keys control the digits and indicators on the scoreboard and the control console display.
  • On most scoreboards, two set of running penalty timers or light indicators are present.
  • They are of course controlled by the corresponding keys (Home and Guest).
  • Up to five penalties may be entered per side.
  • Penalties are maintained in the order in which they were entered.
  • The first two penalties are actively timed.
  • The last three penalties are not timed, but stored in memory.
  • When penalty 1 or 2 expires, all the remaining penalties automatically shift one place over. So, as the timed penalties expire, the other penalties become timed.
  • Penalties are shown on the control board display. The penalties are identified by their number (1 to 5), which also appears on the control console display.
  • When the “RUN” key is pressed, penalty timer no. 1 shows on the control console for each side (Home and Guest).

Example 1. Home team get their first penalty, 2:00 minutes

Running time must be in “STOP” mode.

  1. Press the “ENTER” key
  2. Press the “2” key
  3. Press the Home “PENALTY” key

Penalty 1 will now be displayed as such on the scoreboard and also on your control display, and will start timing when the “RUN” switch is pressed.

Example 2. Home team get their second penalty, 2:00 minutes

Play at that time is stopped, and the running time is in “STOP” mode.

  1. Press the Home “PENALTY” key, you will now see the display on your control change to : PEN 2 with time of 0:00
  2. Press the “ENTER” key
  3. Press the “2” key
  4. Press the Home “PENALTY” key

Penalty 1 and 2 will now be displayed on the scoreboard and also on your control display.

When the “RUN” key is pressed, the scoreboard will display penalty 1 and 2, but the control console will go back to showing penalty 1, as it is capable of showing one penalty timer per team only.

Example 3. Home team get their third penalty, 2:00 minutes and penalty 1 and 2 have not yet expired.

  1. Press the Home “PENALTY” key. You will now see the display on your control change to : PEN 3 with a time of 0:00
  2. Press the “ENTER” key
  3. Press the “2” key
  4. Press the Home “PENALTY” key

Penalty 1 and 2 are still displayed on the scoreboard and will start running when the “RUN” key is pressed. Penalty 3, however, will be stored in memory until either penalty 1 or 2 have elapsed or are cancelled.

Example 4. Penalty 1 expires or is cancelled

  1. Penalty 2 becomes Penalty 1
  2. Penalty 3 is retrieved from memory and becomes Penalty 2 Of course, both penalties will time when the “RUN” key is pressed.

TO CANCEL A PENALTY

  1. Press the “PENALTY” key repeatedly, until the penalty in question shows up in your control console display
  2. Press the “ENTER” key
  3. Press the “0” key
  4. Press the “PENALTY” key

PLAYER NUMBER

Scoretec scoreboard model 782 SOG is equipped with penalty timers plus the corresponding player numbers.

Entering these numbers with the penalty is done in the same manner as entering penalties only.

Example:

Home team player number 99 gets a 2:00 minute penalty.

Running time must be in “STOP” mode.

  1. Press the “ENTER” key
  2. Press the “2” key
  3. Press the “/” key
  4. Press the “9” key
  5. Press the “9” key
  6. Press the Home “PENALTY” key.

As a timekeeper becomes familiar with, and fast enough on the control, he can always enter the player number with the penalty.

Even if the scoreboard is not capable of showing the number, the control is always equipped to show this information, and it may be a lot of help to the timekeeper in keeping track of the penalties.

STOP/GO PENALTIES

Scoretec has included this feature, as it is very much in demand by minor hockey leagues. The idea, of course, to stop/go the penalty timers while the main timer keeps running.

To enable this feature, make sure that the main running time is in the “STOP” mode Now press the “STOP/GO PENALTY” key for 5 seconds. You will see an “S” come up on the control console display in the corresponding field. This means that the feature is enabled.

When the control is in this mode, the penalties can be entered while the main timer is running.

To stop the penalty timer, press the “STOP/GO PENALTY” key once. Press it again to start the penalty timer again.

Of course, regardless of the state of this key, the penalty timers will also stop, when the running time “STOP” key is activated and will resume when the “RUN” key is pressed.

To disable this feature, again press the “STOP/GO PENALTY” key for 5 seconds If you watch your control display, you will see the “S” disappear.

You are now back in the regular game mode.

DATA CLEARING

When two games follow one another, the scoreboard can be cleared, simply by holding the “CLEAR” key down for 5 seconds.

The “CLEAR” can also be used when incorrect information is entered in the staging area on the control, and a function key has NOT yet been pressed. In this case, do NOT hold the “CLEAR” key for 5 seconds, but simply press once.

TIME INDICATION ON YOUR CONTROL

  1. The main timer is running and counting down. The colon in the running time section on the control will show 20:00
  2. The main timer is running and counting up The colon in the running section on the control will show 20^00
  3. The interval horn circuit is activated. The colon in the running time section on the control will show 20 00

 

TIME UP/DOWN

  • When the scoreboard is first activated, the timer is set to count down.
  • Press the “TIME UP/DOWN” key to make the timer count up.
  • Every time the “TIME UP/DOWN” key is pressed, the game timer alternates between counting up and down.
