  • Manufactured from high quality components
  • Quick field installation
  • 12 month warranty
  • IR dual-beam units are mounted on custom brackets with pc board for RJ-45 socket, LED indicator, audible alarm and intelligent control
  • Control unit is microcontroller based and houses an audible and visual alarm
  • Standard LaneMinder will span up to 40 lanes - higher power IR units are available for larger lane areas
  • The LaneMinder2 is currently installed in around 80% of bowling centres in Australia including all AMF centres. Many more units are installed in the UK, Europe and the US.
  • Control Unit has provision for two IR beams, Beam 1 (infra-red beam transmitter and receiver pair positioned about 5 feet past foul line) and Beam 2 (optional infra-red beam transmitter and receiver pair positioned as per beam 1 if there is a second lane zone or at another location in the bowling centre).


LaneMinder2 Standard

Beam 1 Transmitter (Tx) and Receiver (Rx) Modules are fixed to the side walls of the centre, one at each end, at somewhere between 5 and 15ft down the lanes.

Height of the beams over the lanes should be about 18 inches to 2 feet, so that the beam is not interrupted by a lane machine. This should catch anyone, including a child who tries to walk down the lane.

Buzzers sound and a high intensity LED array flashes on the control unit when Beam 1 is broken.


LaneMinder2 Plus

No longer available. The "Plus" kit allowed the LaneMinder2 to shut down the Pinspotters or Pinsetters when the optional Beam 2 was broken in sequence after Beam 1.

Changes to machine safety standards and regulations in many countries have meant that a more complex system is required to automatically shut down machines in the case of an intrusion or similar incident. There are now "fail-safe" and other technical requirements that have led to the development of MachineMinder.


Contact your public risk insurer and ask if they give premium discounts where a public intrusion warning device such as LaneMinder2 is installed.

LaneMinder2 Standard kit consists of:

  • 1 x LaneMinder2 Control Unit
  • 1 x LaneMinder2 dual-beam Transmitter Module
  • 1 x LaneMinder2 dual-beam Receiver Module
  • 2 x pre-made 30m Cat-5 cable
  • 2 x pre-made 20m Cat-5 cable
  • 2 x Cat-5 in-line joiners
  • 1 x 12VDC power supply

Customers can order this kit without Cat-5 cables to significantly reduce shipping weight.







LaneMinder 2 Cutout Control Module

Cutout Control Module - This module is still available (was orignally required to control the Cutout-2 Modules) because it is still required as an interface between the LaneMinder2 Control Box and the Remote Control Kit. It also has "Lanes" and "Reset" buttons to duplicate those on main Control Unit.

LaneMinder 2 Buzzer Module
