Description

本発明は、遊技機に関し、更に詳細には、機裏側に設けた機構セット盤に、各種遊技部品を電気的に制御する制御装置が配設される遊技機に関するものである。   The present invention relates to a gaming machine, and more particularly to a gaming machine in which a control device for electrically controlling various gaming parts is disposed on a mechanism set board provided on the back side of the machine.

例えば遊技機の代表例の一つであるパチンコ機やアレンジボール機では、機内にセットされる遊技盤に、各種の入賞口や案内車が配置される一方、図柄表示装置や入賞装置、ランプ類、その他スピーカ等の電気部品が配置されている。また、前記遊技機の裏側には、各種遊技球の球通路等が形成される機構セット盤が設けられており、該機構セット盤に、前記各電気的部品を制御する制御基板を基板ケースに収容した制御装置が配設される。ここで、前記制御装置としては、例えば遊技機全体を制御するメイン制御装置や前記各電気部品に対応して設けられるサブ制御装置、電源の供給制御を行なう電源制御装置等の各種制御装置が設けられている。そして、前記各制御装置が対応の電気部品を制御することで、前記図柄表示装置で図柄変動ゲームを行なうと共に、該図柄変動ゲームに合わせて、前記ランプ類を発光させたりスピーカから効果音を出したりして、所要の遊技を行なうようになっている。   For example, in a pachinko machine or an arrangement ball machine, which is one of the representative examples of gaming machines, various winning holes and guide cars are arranged on the gaming board set in the machine, while a symbol display device, a winning device, lamps, etc. In addition, other electrical components such as a speaker are arranged. Further, a mechanism set board in which a ball passage of various game balls is formed is provided on the back side of the gaming machine, and a control board for controlling each electrical component is provided on the board case as a mechanism set board. The accommodated control device is arranged. Here, as the control device, for example, there are provided various control devices such as a main control device that controls the entire gaming machine, a sub-control device provided corresponding to each electric component, and a power supply control device that performs power supply control. It has been. Then, each control device controls the corresponding electrical component, so that the symbol display game is played on the symbol display device, and in response to the symbol variation game, the lamps are made to emit light or a sound effect is emitted from a speaker. Or play the required game.

ところで、前記制御装置をそのまま機構セット盤に配設すると、他の制御装置等から発生するノイズに起因して当該制御装置に誤作動が生ずることがあることから、各制御装置に対してノイズ対策を行なう必要がある。このような制御装置に対するノイズ対策としては、例えば特許文献1に開示されるように、前記制御装置の裏面(機構セット盤と対向する面)に、導電性材料で形成したシールド部材を配設してノイズを遮断するよう構成し、制御装置の誤作動を防止するものが知られている。なお、前記シールド部材は、前記制御装置に対して着脱または回動可能に取付けてある。すなわち、特許文献1に開示された制御装置では、前記シールド部材を取付けるだけの簡単な構成で制御装置の誤作動の防止を実現し得ると共に、必要に応じてシールド板を着脱または回動するだけで、制御装置内部の制御基板を外部から目視して制御基板の異常を確認し得るようになっている。   By the way, if the control device is disposed on the mechanism set panel as it is, malfunction may occur in the control device due to noise generated from other control devices or the like. It is necessary to do. As a noise countermeasure for such a control device, for example, as disclosed in Patent Document 1, a shield member made of a conductive material is disposed on the back surface of the control device (a surface facing the mechanism set board). In order to prevent noise, the control device is known to prevent malfunction. In addition, the said shield member is attached with respect to the said control apparatus so that attachment or detachment or rotation is possible. That is, in the control device disclosed in Patent Document 1, it is possible to prevent the malfunction of the control device with a simple configuration by simply attaching the shield member, and only to attach or detach or rotate the shield plate as necessary. Thus, the control board inside the control apparatus can be visually observed from the outside so that the abnormality of the control board can be confirmed.

ここで、前記シールド部材は、機種変更等により新しい制御装置に交換する必要が生じた場合であっても、該制御装置の外形形状に変更がない限りはそのまま使用可能な部材である。しかしながら、前記シールド部材は前記制御装置に直接取付けられるため、該制御装置を交換した場合には、該シールド部材も交換されてしまい、廃棄物の増加を招くと共に、コストが増大する要因ともなる。なお、前記シールド部材を前記制御装置に着脱可能に設けた場合には、シールド部材を取外して新たな制御装置に付け替えるようにすれば、前述した問題が生ずることはない。しかし、この場合には、煩雑な付け替え作業が必要なため、機種変更等の作業効率が低下する。また、元の制御装置から取外したシールド部材を、新たな制御装置に取付けるまでは保管しなければならず、その保管スペースを確保する必要が生ずると共に、場合によっては取外したシールド部材を紛失する虞がある。   Here, the shield member is a member that can be used as it is as long as there is no change in the outer shape of the control device even when it is necessary to replace the control device with a new control device. However, since the shield member is directly attached to the control device, when the control device is replaced, the shield member is also replaced, resulting in an increase in waste and an increase in cost. When the shield member is detachably provided on the control device, the above-described problem does not occur if the shield member is removed and replaced with a new control device. However, in this case, since complicated replacement work is required, work efficiency such as model change is lowered. Further, the shield member removed from the original control device must be stored until it is attached to a new control device, so that it is necessary to secure the storage space, and in some cases, the removed shield member may be lost. There is.

また、機種変更に際しては、制御装置の外形形状が変更されることもあり、この場合には元の制御装置に取付けられていたシールド部材のサイズが合わなくなるため、該シールド部材の形状も変更しなければならず、コストが嵩む問題が指摘される。更に、前記シールド部材を制御装置に取付ける構成では、該シールド部材の形状を制御装置の形状に合わせて形成する必要があり、該シールド部材の形状が限定される。ここで、前記制御装置は遊技機とは別に扱われることもあり、該制御装置の保管、輸送、遊技機への取付け等の利便性を考慮すると、制御装置の重量をできるだけ抑制することが好ましい。この場合に、制御装置自体の重量を低減するのには限度があることから、必然的にシールド部材の重量を低減することになる。従って、シールド部材の形状は、結果的に単純な平板形状で、その肉厚の薄い軽量のものに限定されるため、制御装置に対するノイズの遮断効果は万全とは云えない部分もある。
そこで、本発明は、機種変更等に際し、シールド部材を交換することなく共通で使用可能な遊技機を提供することを目的とする。
In addition, when changing the model, the outer shape of the control device may be changed. In this case, the size of the shield member attached to the original control device will not match, so the shape of the shield member will also be changed. It is necessary to point out the problem of increasing costs. Further, in the configuration in which the shield member is attached to the control device, the shape of the shield member needs to be formed in accordance with the shape of the control device, and the shape of the shield member is limited. Here, the control device may be handled separately from the gaming machine, and it is preferable to suppress the weight of the control device as much as possible in consideration of convenience such as storage, transportation, and attachment to the gaming machine. . In this case, since there is a limit in reducing the weight of the control device itself, the weight of the shield member is inevitably reduced. Therefore, since the shape of the shield member is consequently limited to a simple flat plate shape and thin and light, there is a portion where the noise blocking effect on the control device is not perfect.
Accordingly, an object of the present invention is to provide a gaming machine that can be used in common without changing the shield member when changing the model.

In order to overcome the above-mentioned problems and achieve the intended purpose, a gaming machine according to the present invention includes:
In a gaming machine in which various electrical component control devices (20) are detachably disposed on the back side of the middle frame (12),
A first engaging portion (36) that protrudes rearward and a shaft portion (51) that protrudes upward at a position spaced from the first engaging portion (36). A mounting portion (35) is formed on the back side of the middle frame (12),
A second engaging portion (24a) that can be engaged with the first engaging portion (36) and a first shaft hole (53) into which the shaft portion (51) can be inserted include the control device (20). And formed into
A shield member (40) that blocks noise from the noise generation source (21), a third engagement portion (41) that can be engaged with the first engagement portion (36), and the shaft portion (51) A second shaft hole (55) is formed,
The third engagement portion (41) and the first engagement portion (the first engagement portion (41) of the shield member (40), which is rotatably supported by inserting the shaft portion (51) into the second shaft hole (55). 36) and the shield member (40) is attached to the mounting portion (35), and the shaft portion (51) is inserted into the first shaft hole (53) and supported rotatably. By attaching the control device (20) to the attachment portion (35) by engaging the second engagement portion (24a) and the first engagement portion (36) of the control device (20), the control device ( 20) and the noise generation source (21), and the shield member (40) is configured to be positioned.

また、前記制御装置(20)は機種変更時に交換を要する専用基板を備えると共に、前記ノイズ発生源は機種変更時に交換を要しない共用基板を備えた第2の制御装置(21)であって、
前記中枠(12)の後方に開口するよう形成された収容凹部(34)に前記第2の制御装置(21)が着脱可能に収容されると共に、前記取付部(35)に取付けたシールド部材(40)で収容凹部(34)の後方開口を塞ぐよう構成され、
前記制御装置(20)と第2の制御装置(21)とが前記シールド部材(40)を介して前後に重なる位置関係で位置するよう該シールド部材(40)の後側に制御装置(20)を配置してもよい。
In addition, the control device (20) includes a dedicated board that needs to be replaced when the model is changed, and the noise generation source is a second control device (21) including a common board that does not need to be replaced when the model is changed.
The second control device (21) is detachably accommodated in an accommodation recess (34) formed to open to the rear of the middle frame (12), and a shield member attached to the attachment portion (35) (40) is configured to close the rear opening of the housing recess (34),
The control device (20) is arranged on the rear side of the shield member (40) so that the control device (20) and the second control device (21) are positioned so as to overlap with each other through the shield member (40). May be arranged.

更に、前記第2の制御装置(21)の側面に、該第2の制御装置(21)を構成する保護ケース(22)の内外を連通する通風孔を開設すると共に、前記収容凹部(34)を画成する壁部に、該第2の制御装置(21)の通風孔と対応する位置に、該収容凹部(34)を側方に開放する切欠部を形成することも可能である。   Furthermore, a vent hole is formed in the side surface of the second control device (21) to communicate the inside and outside of the protective case (22) constituting the second control device (21), and the housing recess (34). It is also possible to form a notch that opens the housing recess (34) laterally at a position corresponding to the ventilation hole of the second control device (21) in the wall defining the above.

本発明の請求項1に係る遊技機は、シールド部材を中枠の裏側に取付けるよう構成したことで、機種変更や制御装置の故障・損傷時等に制御装置だけを交換することができる。すなわち、シールド部材はそのまま使用できるから、制御装置を交換するに際して、廃棄物やコストが増大することはない。また、制御装置の交換・メンテナンス時等に、該制御装置からシールド部材を取外す必要がないから、作業を簡単に行ない得ると共に、シールド部材を紛失することもない。そして、制御装置の外形形状を変更した場合であっても、シールド部材の形状を変更する必要はなく、この場合にも廃棄物やコストを抑制し得る利点がある。更に、シールド部材を中枠の裏側に取付けるようにしたことで、重量に囚われることなくシールド部材の形状等を任意に決定し得るから、より確実にノイズを遮断し得るようにできる。なお、前記シールド部材を制御装置とは一体的に取り扱わないよう構成したことで、前記シールド部材の重量が嵩んだ場合であっても、該制御装置の保管、輸送、遊技機への取付け等の利便性の低下を招くことはない。   The gaming machine according to claim 1 of the present invention is configured such that the shield member is attached to the back side of the middle frame, so that only the control device can be exchanged when the model is changed or the control device is broken or damaged. In other words, since the shield member can be used as it is, waste and cost do not increase when the control device is replaced. Further, since it is not necessary to remove the shield member from the control device when replacing or maintaining the control device, the work can be easily performed and the shield member is not lost. And even if it is a case where the external shape of a control apparatus is changed, it is not necessary to change the shape of a shield member, and also in this case, there exists an advantage which can suppress a waste material and cost. Furthermore, since the shield member is attached to the back side of the middle frame, the shape and the like of the shield member can be arbitrarily determined without being constrained by the weight, so that noise can be blocked more reliably. The shield member is configured not to be handled integrally with the control device, so that the control device can be stored, transported, attached to a gaming machine, etc. even when the weight of the shield member is increased. There will be no decrease in convenience.

また、シールド部材に形成した第2の軸孔に取付部の軸部を挿通した状態で、該シールド部材の第3の係合部を第1の係合部に係合させることにより、当該シールド部材を中枠の裏側に取付け得ると共に、制御装置に形成した第1の軸孔に取付部の軸部を挿通した状態で、該制御装置の第2の係合部を第1の係合部と係合させることにより、当該制御装置を中枠の裏側に取付けることができる。このように、制御装置およびシールド部材の個々に対応した取付部を形成する必要がないから、コストの低減を図り得ると共に、スペース的な余裕もできる。また、前記制御装置を回動可能に支持したことで、該制御装置を回動させるだけで制御装置のシールド部材との対向面側も確認することができるから、メンテナンス作業等を容易に行ない得る利点がある。そして、前記シールド部材を回動可能に構成したことで、該シールド部材で覆われた部材に交換・メンテナンス作業等の必要が生じた場合であっても、当該シールド部材を取外す必要がないから、作業時にシールド部材を紛失することはない。   Further, by engaging the third engagement portion of the shield member with the first engagement portion in a state where the shaft portion of the attachment portion is inserted into the second shaft hole formed in the shield member, the shield The member can be attached to the back side of the middle frame, and the second engagement portion of the control device is connected to the first engagement portion in a state where the shaft portion of the attachment portion is inserted into the first shaft hole formed in the control device. The control device can be attached to the back side of the middle frame. Thus, since it is not necessary to form the attachment part corresponding to each of a control apparatus and a shield member, while being able to aim at cost reduction, a space margin can also be made. In addition, since the control device is rotatably supported, it is possible to check the surface facing the shield member of the control device simply by rotating the control device, so that maintenance work and the like can be easily performed. There are advantages. And, since the shield member is configured to be rotatable, even if the member covered with the shield member needs to be replaced or maintained, it is not necessary to remove the shield member. The shield member is not lost during work.

また、請求項2に係る遊技機によれば、前記制御装置と、ノイズ発生源としての第2の制御装置との間に、前記シールド部材が位置するから、両制御装置を重ねて配置した場合であってもノイズによる制御装置の誤作動が起こるのを防止し得る。同様に、前記制御装置に起因して発生したノイズも前記シールド部材で遮断されるから、該ノイズによって前記第2の制御装置に誤作動が発生するのを防止できる。更に、制御装置と第2の制御装置とを前後に重ねて配置することで、中枠の面方向にスペース的な余裕が生ずるから、該中枠裏側への他部材の設置の自由度を向上させ得る。従って、各種部材を中枠裏側に余裕を持って配置させ得ると共に、従来にない新たな部材の設置が可能となる。また、制御装置に機種変更時に交換を要する専用基板を収容して該制御装置をシールド部材の後側に配置すると共に、第2の制御装置に機種変更時に交換を要しない共用基板を収容して該第2の制御装置を収容凹部に配置することで、機種変更や制御装置の故障・損傷時等にシールド部材を取外すことなく作業を行なうことができ、作業効率が向上される。   In addition, according to the gaming machine according to claim 2, when the shield member is located between the control device and the second control device as a noise generation source, both control devices are arranged in an overlapping manner. However, it is possible to prevent malfunction of the control device due to noise. Similarly, since the noise generated due to the control device is also blocked by the shield member, it is possible to prevent malfunction from occurring in the second control device due to the noise. Furthermore, by arranging the control device and the second control device in the front-rear direction, there is a space margin in the surface direction of the inner frame, so the degree of freedom in installing other members on the back side of the inner frame is improved. Can be. Therefore, various members can be arranged with a margin on the back side of the middle frame, and a new member that has never been available can be installed. In addition, the control device accommodates a dedicated board that needs to be replaced when the model is changed and arranges the control device behind the shield member, and the second control device accommodates a common board that does not need to be replaced when the model is changed. By disposing the second control device in the housing recess, the work can be performed without removing the shield member when the model is changed or the control device is broken or damaged, and the work efficiency is improved.

ここで、パチンコ機10に配設される各種制御装置20,21,27は、図示しない制御基板を透明樹脂製の保護ケース22内に収容して構成されており、該保護ケース22の外部から制御基板を視認し得るようになっている。なお、前記主制御装置20の保護ケース22内に収容される制御基板は、パチンコ機10で行なう遊技内容を特定するものであって、遊技盤等を交換して遊技内容を変更する所謂機種変更時には交換を要する専用基板である。これに対して、前記電源制御装置21の保護ケース22内に収容される制御基板は、各制御装置20,27への電源供給を制御するものであって、異なる機種同士でも使用でき、機種変更時に交換を要しない共用基板である。また、前記主制御装置20の保護ケース22における一方の側縁部(図3の右側縁部)には、上下方向に離間する2箇所に、該側縁部からケース外方に向けて突出する支持部24,24が形成されており、該支持部24,24の夫々に、前後方向に貫通する第1の係合孔(第2の係合部)24a,24aが穿設されている。更に、前記主制御装置20の保護ケース22における他方の側縁部(図2の左側縁部)には、上下に離間する2箇所に該側縁部に対して略垂直に突出する(すなわち図2の左方向に突出する)第1の突出部25,25を形成してある。   Here, the various control devices 20, 21, 27 arranged in the pachinko machine 10 are configured by accommodating a control board (not shown) in a protective case 22 made of transparent resin, and from the outside of the protective case 22. The control board can be visually recognized. The control board accommodated in the protective case 22 of the main control device 20 specifies the game content to be played by the pachinko machine 10, and is a so-called model change in which the game content is changed by exchanging a game board or the like. It is a dedicated board that sometimes needs to be replaced. On the other hand, the control board accommodated in the protective case 22 of the power supply control device 21 controls power supply to the control devices 20 and 27 and can be used between different models. It is a common board that sometimes does not require replacement. Further, one side edge (the right edge in FIG. 3) of the protective case 22 of the main control device 20 protrudes from the side edge toward the outside of the case at two locations separated in the vertical direction. Support portions 24 and 24 are formed, and first engagement holes (second engagement portions) 24a and 24a penetrating in the front-rear direction are formed in the support portions 24 and 24, respectively. Further, the other side edge portion (left side edge portion in FIG. 2) of the protective case 22 of the main control device 20 protrudes substantially perpendicularly to the side edge portion at two locations that are separated from each other in the vertical direction (that is, FIG. 2) (first projecting portions 25, 25 projecting to the left).

前記機構セット盤30は、前記中枠12の外郭形状に略整合する矩形状に形成され、その略中央に開設した窓口31を介して前記遊技盤の裏面がパチンコ機10の後方に臨むように構成されている。また、前記機構セット盤30の上側には、外部の球供給設備から供給されるパチンコ球を貯留する球タンク32が配設されており、該球タンク32のパチンコ球を、前記窓口31の右側部に設けた球通路33を介して前記上球皿や下球皿に供給するようになっている。更に、前記機構セット盤30における前記窓口31の下側には、後方に開口するよう前側に凹んだ収容凹部34が形成してある(図2参照)。   The mechanism set board 30 is formed in a rectangular shape that substantially matches the outer shape of the middle frame 12, and the back surface of the game board faces the back of the pachinko machine 10 through a window 31 that is opened in the approximate center. It is configured. Further, a ball tank 32 for storing pachinko balls supplied from an external ball supply facility is disposed on the upper side of the mechanism set board 30, and the pachinko balls in the ball tank 32 are placed on the right side of the window 31. The upper ball tray and the lower ball tray are supplied through a ball passage 33 provided in the section. Further, an accommodation recess 34 that is recessed forward is formed on the mechanism set panel 30 below the window 31 (see FIG. 2).

前記収容凹部34の開口寸法は、前記電源制御装置21における機構セット盤30との対向面と略整合する大きさで、かつ該収容凹部34の前後方向の奥行き寸法は、該電源制御装置21の前後方向の長さ寸法より大きく設定される。すなわち、図3に示すように、前記電源制御装置21を収容凹部34内に完全に収容し得るよう構成されている。また、前記機構セット盤30における前記収容凹部34の近傍には、前記主制御装置20を着脱自在に取付ける取付部35が形成されており、該取付部35を介して主制御装置20が、前記電源制御装置21と前後に重なる位置関係で取付けられている(図1〜図3参照)。なお、実施例1では、前記電源制御装置21は、従来公知の係合手段やネジ止め等により、前記収容凹部34内に着脱自在に配設されている。   The opening size of the housing recess 34 is such that it substantially matches the surface of the power supply control device 21 facing the mechanism set board 30, and the depth dimension of the housing recess 34 in the front-rear direction is that of the power supply control device 21. It is set larger than the length dimension in the front-rear direction. That is, as shown in FIG. 3, the power supply control device 21 can be completely accommodated in the accommodation recess 34. Further, an attachment portion 35 for removably attaching the main control device 20 is formed in the mechanism set panel 30 in the vicinity of the accommodating recess 34, and the main control device 20 is connected to the main control device 20 via the attachment portion 35. The power supply control device 21 is attached in a positional relationship overlapping with the front and rear (see FIGS. 1 to 3). In the first embodiment, the power supply control device 21 is detachably disposed in the housing recess 34 by a conventionally known engagement means, screwing, or the like.

また、前記収容凹部34に収容した前記電源制御装置21と、前記取付部35に取付けた主制御装置20との間には、図1〜図3に示すように、金属板等の導電材で形成されたノイズ遮断用のシールド部材40が配置されており、電源制御装置21で発生したノイズが主制御装置20に到達するのを防止すると共に、該主制御装置20で発生したノイズが電源制御装置21に到達しないようになっている。すなわち、実施例1に係るパチンコ機10では、図1〜図4に示すように、前記シールド部材40と機構セット盤30との間に、機種変更時に交換を要しない前記電源制御装置21が配置されると共に、該シールド部材40における機構セット盤30とは反対側(すなわちパチンコ機10の外側)に、変更時に交換を要する前記主制御装置20が配置されている。   Further, between the power supply control device 21 housed in the housing recess 34 and the main control device 20 attached to the attachment portion 35, a conductive material such as a metal plate is used as shown in FIGS. The formed noise shielding shield member 40 is arranged to prevent the noise generated in the power supply control device 21 from reaching the main control device 20, and the noise generated in the main control device 20 is controlled by the power supply. It does not reach the device 21. That is, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, as shown in FIGS. 1 to 4, the power supply control device 21 that does not require replacement when changing the model is disposed between the shield member 40 and the mechanism set panel 30. At the same time, the main controller 20 that needs to be replaced at the time of change is arranged on the opposite side of the shield member 40 from the mechanism set board 30 (that is, outside the pachinko machine 10).

図3に示すように、前記取付部35は、前記主制御装置20に形成した前記第1の係合孔24a,24aと係脱自在に係合する係合突部(第1の係合部)36,36,39,39と、該主制御装置20に形成した前記第1の突出部25,25を挿入可能な開口部38,38とから構成される。なお、実施例1では、前記係合突部36,36,39,39を上下方向に離間する4箇所に形成してあるが、最も上下に離間する2つの係合突部36,36が前記主制御装置20を取付けるのに供され、その間の2つの係合突部39,39は前記払出制御装置27を取付けるのに供される。ここで、前記主制御装置20を取付ける係合突部36と払出制御装置27を取付ける係合突部39の形状は同一のため、主制御装置20の係合突部36についてのみ説明する。前記係合突部36,36は、前記機構セット盤30の背面30aにおける前記収容凹部34の近傍(図3または図4では収容凹部34の右側)に、上下に離間する位置に対向すると共に上下方向に弾性変形可能で、後方に向けて突出形成された一対のフック37,37からなり、該フック37,37における互いに対向しない面に爪部37a,37aが形成されている。また、前記各爪部37a,37aは、前記係合突部36,36(フック37,37)を第1の係合孔24a,24aに挿入した際に、前記支持部24,24の後端面に当接する位置に形成されており、該支持部24,24の後端面に爪部37a,37aが当接することで、前記主制御装置20の後方移動を規制している。   As shown in FIG. 3, the attachment portion 35 is an engagement protrusion (first engagement portion) that is detachably engaged with the first engagement holes 24a, 24a formed in the main controller 20. ) 36, 36, 39, 39, and openings 38, 38 into which the first protrusions 25, 25 formed in the main controller 20 can be inserted. In the first embodiment, the engaging protrusions 36, 36, 39, 39 are formed at four positions that are spaced apart in the vertical direction. The main control device 20 is used for mounting, and the two engaging protrusions 39 and 39 therebetween are used for mounting the payout control device 27. Here, since the shape of the engagement protrusion 36 for attaching the main control device 20 and the engagement protrusion 39 for attaching the payout control device 27 are the same, only the engagement protrusion 36 of the main control device 20 will be described. The engaging protrusions 36, 36 oppose the upper and lower positions of the rear surface 30 a of the mechanism setting panel 30 in the vicinity of the receiving recess 34 (on the right side of the receiving recess 34 in FIG. 3 or 4). It consists of a pair of hooks 37, 37 that can be elastically deformed in the direction and protrude rearward. The claw portions 37a and 37a have rear end surfaces of the support portions 24 and 24 when the engagement protrusions 36 and 36 (hooks 37 and 37) are inserted into the first engagement holes 24a and 24a. The claw portions 37a and 37a are in contact with the rear end surfaces of the support portions 24 and 24, thereby restricting rearward movement of the main control device 20.

また、前記開口部38,38は、前記機構セット盤30における前記収容凹部34を画成する壁部34a(図3または図4では収容凹部34の左側)の後端部における上下方向に離間する2箇所に、前記係合突部36,36側に開口するよう形成されている。従って、前記主制御装置20に形成した第1の突出部25,25の夫々を、前記開口部38,38に挿入した状態では、開口部38,38の内面に第1の突出部25,25が当接して、該主制御装置20が後方移動しないようになっている。すなわち、前記主制御装置20の第1の係合孔24a,24aおよび第1の突出部25,25を、対応する前記係合突部36,36および開口部38,38の夫々と係合することで、該主制御装置20が機構セット盤30(取付部35)に取付けられる。なお、実施例1では、前記開口部38,38は、前記収容凹部34に配置した前記電源制御装置21の背面より後方位置に形成されており、該開口部38,38を介して取付けた主制御装置20(シールド部材40)が電源制御装置21と干渉しないよう構成してある。   The openings 38 are spaced apart in the vertical direction at the rear end of the wall 34a (the left side of the housing recess 34 in FIG. 3 or 4) that defines the housing recess 34 in the mechanism set board 30. Two openings are formed so as to open toward the engagement protrusions 36, 36. Therefore, when the first protrusions 25 and 25 formed in the main controller 20 are inserted into the openings 38 and 38, the first protrusions 25 and 25 are formed on the inner surfaces of the openings 38 and 38, respectively. The main controller 20 does not move backward. That is, the first engagement holes 24a and 24a and the first protrusions 25 and 25 of the main controller 20 are engaged with the corresponding engagement protrusions 36 and 36 and the openings 38 and 38, respectively. Thus, the main controller 20 is attached to the mechanism set panel 30 (attachment portion 35). In the first embodiment, the openings 38 and 38 are formed at a position rearward of the rear surface of the power supply control device 21 disposed in the housing recess 34, and are attached via the openings 38 and 38. The control device 20 (shield member 40) is configured not to interfere with the power supply control device 21.

前記電源制御装置21と主制御装置20との間に配置される前記シールド部材は、図2または図3に示すように、主制御装置20における電源制御装置21との対向面の略全面を覆う大きさに形成されており、該電源制御装置21から発生したノイズを遮断して、主制御装置20の誤作動を防止している。また、前記シールド部材40は、前記機構セット盤30に形成した前記係合突部36と係合可能な第2の係合孔(第3の係合部)41と、前記開口部38,38に挿入可能な第2の突出部42,42とを備えており、前述した主制御装置20と同様に、該機構セット盤30の開口部38,38に第2の突出部42,42を挿入した状態で、係合突部36と第2の係合孔41とを係合することで、所定位置に取付けられるよう構成される。   The shield member disposed between the power control device 21 and the main control device 20 covers substantially the entire surface of the main control device 20 facing the power control device 21, as shown in FIG. 2 or FIG. The noise is generated from the power supply control device 21 to prevent the main control device 20 from malfunctioning. The shield member 40 includes a second engagement hole (third engagement portion) 41 that can be engaged with the engagement protrusion 36 formed in the mechanism set board 30, and the openings 38 and 38. And the second protrusions 42 and 42 can be inserted into the openings 38 and 38 of the mechanism set board 30 in the same manner as the main controller 20 described above. In this state, the engagement protrusion 36 and the second engagement hole 41 are engaged with each other to be attached at a predetermined position.

ここで、前記第2の係合孔41は、上下方向に所定間隔離間する一対の係合片41a,41aからなり、該係合片41a,41aが前記係合突部36の爪部37a,37aに当接するよう構成される。なお、実施例1では、前記第2の係合孔41は、上側に形成された係合突部36と対応する位置にのみ形成されており、下側に形成された係合突部36と対応する位置には、当該係合突部36を挿通する通孔43を形成してある。すなわち、前記シールド部材40は、前記第2の係合孔41と係合突部36とが係合することで、前記取付部35からの脱落が防止される。   Here, the second engagement hole 41 is composed of a pair of engagement pieces 41a and 41a spaced apart by a predetermined distance in the vertical direction, and the engagement pieces 41a and 41a are claw portions 37a and 41a of the engagement protrusion 36, respectively. It is comprised so that it may contact | abut 37a. In the first embodiment, the second engagement hole 41 is formed only at a position corresponding to the engagement protrusion 36 formed on the upper side, and the engagement protrusion 36 formed on the lower side. At the corresponding position, a through hole 43 through which the engaging protrusion 36 is inserted is formed. That is, the shield member 40 is prevented from falling off from the attachment portion 35 by the engagement of the second engagement hole 41 and the engagement protrusion 36.

また、前記第2の突出部42,42は、図2に示すように、前記機構セット盤30に形成した開口部38,38と対応して設けられると共に、前記第2の係合孔41から離間するにつれて機構セット盤30側に傾斜する傾斜面42a,42aが形成されている。すなわち、前記第2の突出部42,42を前記開口部38,38に挿入した状態では、該開口部38,38の開口端部から内側に向かうにつれて開口幅が次第に拡がるようになっている(図4(b)参照)。   Further, as shown in FIG. 2, the second projecting portions 42, 42 are provided corresponding to the openings 38, 38 formed in the mechanism set board 30, and from the second engagement hole 41. Inclined surfaces 42a, 42a are formed which incline toward the mechanism set panel 30 as they are separated. That is, in the state where the second protrusions 42, 42 are inserted into the openings 38, 38, the opening width gradually increases from the opening end of the openings 38, 38 toward the inside ( (See FIG. 4 (b)).

〔実施例1の作用〕
次に、前述した実施例1に係る遊技機の作用につき以下説明する。前記パチンコ機10は、電源を投入すると、前記電源制御装置21が各制御装置20,27等の電気部品に適切な電流値・電圧値に変換して、これら制御装置20,27等に電源を供給する。そして、遊技者が前記ハンドルユニット18を操作して遊技盤上にパチンコ球を打出すことで所要の遊技が展開される。
[Operation of Example 1]
Next, the operation of the gaming machine according to the first embodiment will be described below. When the pachinko machine 10 is turned on, the power supply control device 21 converts the current values and voltage values appropriate for the electrical components of the control devices 20, 27, etc., and supplies power to the control devices 20, 27, etc. Supply. Then, the player operates the handle unit 18 to strike a pachinko ball on the game board, thereby developing a required game.

ところで、前記電源制御装置21は電流値や電圧値を変更するため、ノイズが発生し易い。このため、前記主制御装置20を電源制御装置21と前後に重ね合う位置関係で配置すると、そのままでは該電源制御装置21からのノイズにより主制御装置20に誤動作等を生ずる虞がある。そこで、実施例1に係るパチンコ機10では、ノイズ発生源としての前記電源制御装置21と、該電源制御装置21からのノイズから保護すべき前記主制御装置20との間に導電材で形成したシールド部材40を配設して、ノイズを遮断するよう構成したから、該主制御装置20に誤作動等が発生するのを防止し得る。更に、前記シールド部材40を前記電源制御装置21の後面の略全面を覆うよう形成したから、該電源制御装置21からのノイズは全面的に遮断され、前記主制御装置20をノイズから好適に保護し得る。同様に、前記主制御装置20からもノイズが発生する虞もあるが、該主制御装置20に起因して発生したノイズも前記シールド部材40で遮断し得るから、該ノイズによって前記電源制御装置21に誤作動が発生するのを防止できる。   By the way, since the power supply control device 21 changes the current value and the voltage value, noise is likely to occur. For this reason, if the main control device 20 is arranged in a positional relationship overlapping with the power supply control device 21 in the front-rear direction, the main control device 20 may malfunction due to noise from the power supply control device 21 as it is. Therefore, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, a conductive material is formed between the power supply control device 21 as a noise generation source and the main control device 20 to be protected from noise from the power supply control device 21. Since the shield member 40 is disposed to block noise, the main controller 20 can be prevented from malfunctioning. Further, since the shield member 40 is formed so as to cover substantially the entire rear surface of the power supply control device 21, noise from the power supply control device 21 is completely blocked, and the main control device 20 is suitably protected from noise. Can do. Similarly, there is also a possibility that noise is generated from the main control device 20, but noise generated due to the main control device 20 can also be blocked by the shield member 40, and therefore the power control device 21 is caused by the noise. Can be prevented from malfunctioning.

なお、前記機構セット盤30の背面30aに、前記主制御装置20と電源制御装置21とを並べて配置した場合には、該機構セット盤30に対する設置面積が大きくなり、他部材の設置スペースが狭くなってしまう。そこで、実施例1のように、前記主制御装置20と電源制御装置21とを前後に重なるよう配置すれば、機構セット盤30の背面(面方向)にスペース的な余裕が生ずるから、該機構セット盤30への他部材の設置の自由度が向上する。従って、機構セット盤30に対して余裕を持って各種部材を配置し得ると共に、従来にない新たな部材の設置も可能となる。   When the main control device 20 and the power supply control device 21 are arranged side by side on the back surface 30a of the mechanism set panel 30, the installation area for the mechanism set panel 30 is increased, and the installation space for other members is reduced. turn into. Therefore, if the main control device 20 and the power supply control device 21 are arranged so as to overlap each other as in the first embodiment, a space margin is generated on the back surface (surface direction) of the mechanism set panel 30. The degree of freedom of installation of other members on the set board 30 is improved. Therefore, various members can be arranged with a margin with respect to the mechanism set board 30, and new members that are not conventionally provided can be installed.

ところで、パチンコ機10の全体を制御している主制御装置20は特に不正改造等を防止する必要があり、その保護ケース22を透明樹脂材で形成して内部を目視し得るよう構成され、該保護ケース22に内蔵した制御基板に回路パターン等の異常がないか否かの検査が行なわれる。ここで、実施例1では、前記機構セット盤30に形成した取付部35を介して、前記シールド部材40と主制御装置20とを夫々独立して着脱自在に取付けるよう構成してあるから、該取付部35から主制御装置20を取外すだけで、当該主制御装置20の制御基板の確認を行なうことができる。すなわち、従来のように、前記シールド部材40を主制御装置20に着脱または回動可能に取付ける構成の場合には、該主制御装置20の制御基板を確認するに際しては、主制御装置20を機構セット盤30(取付部35)から取外した後に、シールド部材40を取外したり回動させて主制御装置20の内部を目視するようにする必要があるのに対し、前述した実施例1に係る構成によれば、主制御装置20を単に機構セット盤30(取付部35)から取外すだけでよいから、作業性が向上し、制御基板の検査作業を迅速かつ簡単に行ない得る利点がある。   By the way, the main controller 20 that controls the entire pachinko machine 10 needs to particularly prevent unauthorized modification, and the protection case 22 is formed of a transparent resin material so that the inside can be visually observed. The control board built in the protective case 22 is inspected for abnormalities such as circuit patterns. Here, in the first embodiment, the shield member 40 and the main control device 20 are independently and detachably attached via the attachment portion 35 formed on the mechanism set board 30. The control board of the main control device 20 can be confirmed simply by removing the main control device 20 from the attachment portion 35. That is, when the shield member 40 is attached to the main control device 20 so as to be attachable / detachable or pivotable as in the prior art, the main control device 20 is provided with a mechanism for checking the control board of the main control device 20. Although it is necessary to remove the shield member 40 and turn the shield member 40 to visually observe the inside of the main control device 20 after the set board 30 (mounting portion 35) is removed, the configuration according to the first embodiment described above. According to the above, since it is only necessary to remove the main controller 20 from the mechanism set panel 30 (attachment portion 35), there is an advantage that workability is improved and the inspection work of the control board can be performed quickly and easily.

また、前述した機種変更を行なう場合や、前記主制御装置20に故障・損傷等の不具合が発生した場合には、該主制御装置20の交換・メンテナンス作業を行なう必要が生ずる。ここで、実施例1では、前記シールド部材40と機構セット盤30との間(すなわち収容凹部34)に前記電源制御装置21を配置すると共に、該シールド部材40における機構セット盤30とは反対側に前記主制御装置20を配置し、更に前記シールド部材40を主制御装置20とは別部材として機構セット盤30に取付けている。このため、前記主制御装置20の交換・メンテナンス作業等を行なう場合であっても、前記機構セット盤30からシールド部材40を取外すことなく主制御装置20のみを取外せばよいから、機種変更時の作業性の向上を図り得ると共に、該シールド部材40を紛失することもない。また、シールド部材40は前記機構セット盤30(取付部35)に取付けたままなので、主制御装置20を交換してもシールド部材40はそのまま使用でき、廃棄物やコストが増大するのを防止し得る。   Further, when the above-described model change is performed or when a failure such as failure or damage occurs in the main control device 20, it is necessary to perform replacement / maintenance work of the main control device 20. Here, in the first embodiment, the power supply control device 21 is disposed between the shield member 40 and the mechanism set board 30 (that is, the housing recess 34), and the shield member 40 is opposite to the mechanism set board 30. The main control device 20 is disposed on the mechanism set panel 30 as a separate member from the main control device 20. For this reason, even when the main controller 20 is replaced or maintained, only the main controller 20 needs to be removed without removing the shield member 40 from the mechanism set panel 30. In addition, the shield member 40 is not lost. Further, since the shield member 40 remains attached to the mechanism set panel 30 (attachment portion 35), the shield member 40 can be used as it is even if the main control device 20 is replaced, thereby preventing an increase in waste and cost. obtain.

更に、前記主制御装置20を取付けるための取付部35を介して、前記シールド部材40を機構セット盤30に取付けるようにしたことで、機種変更等に際して主制御装置20の外形形状を変更した場合であっても、該主制御装置20を取付部35に取付けられる形状であればシールド部材40の形状を変更する必要はないから、この場合にも廃棄物やコストを抑制し得る利点がある。また、シールド部材40を機構セット盤30に取付けることで、該シールド部材40の重量に囚われることなく形状等を任意に決定し得る。従って、前記シールド部材40の厚み寸法を大きく設定して、前記電源制御装置21からのノイズを確実に遮断するよう構成することも可能である。なお、前記シールド部材40を主制御装置20とは一体的に取り扱わないよう構成したことで、前記シールド部材40の重量が嵩んだ場合であっても主制御装置20の重量が増大しないから、該主制御装置20の保管、輸送、パチンコ機10への取付け作業等の利便性の低下を招来する虞はない。   Further, when the shield member 40 is attached to the mechanism set panel 30 via the attachment portion 35 for attaching the main control device 20, the outer shape of the main control device 20 is changed when the model is changed. Even so, there is no need to change the shape of the shield member 40 as long as the main controller 20 can be attached to the attachment portion 35. In this case as well, there is an advantage that waste and cost can be suppressed. Further, by attaching the shield member 40 to the mechanism set panel 30, the shape and the like can be arbitrarily determined without being trapped by the weight of the shield member 40. Therefore, it is possible to configure the shield member 40 to have a large thickness dimension so as to reliably block noise from the power supply control device 21. In addition, since the shield member 40 is configured not to be handled integrally with the main control device 20, the weight of the main control device 20 does not increase even when the weight of the shield member 40 is increased. There is no possibility that the convenience of storage, transportation, attachment to the pachinko machine 10, etc. of the main controller 20 will be reduced.

次に、前記主制御装置20およびシールド部材40の機構セット盤30への取付け方法について説明する。前記機構セット盤30に形成した開口部38,38に、前記シールド部材40に形成した第2の突出部42,42を挿入した状態で、該機構セット盤30の係合突部36,36をシールド部材40の第2の係合孔41および通孔43の夫々に挿入する(図4(a)参照)。このとき、前記第2の係合孔41の係合片41a,41aが前記係合突部36の爪部37a,37aと係合して、前記シールド部材40が機構セット盤30(取付部35)に取付けられる(図4(b)参照)。この状態で、前記開口部38,38に主制御装置20に形成した前記第1の突出部25,25を挿入すると共に、前記係合突部36,36を主制御装置20の第1の係合孔24a,24aの夫々に挿入する(図4(c)参照)。このとき、前記係合突部36,36の爪部37a,37aが前記第1の係合孔24a,24aに当接して前記フック37,37が相互に近接する方向に弾性変形すると共に、該爪部37a,37aが第1の係合孔24a,24aから抜け出ると、該フック37,37が弾性復帰して当該爪部37a,37aが第1の係合孔24a,24aが形成される支持部24,24の後端面と係合して、前記主制御装置20が機構セット盤30(取付部35)に取付けられる(図1参照)。   Next, a method for attaching the main controller 20 and the shield member 40 to the mechanism set panel 30 will be described. With the second protrusions 42, 42 formed on the shield member 40 being inserted into the openings 38, 38 formed on the mechanism set board 30, the engagement protrusions 36, 36 of the mechanism set board 30 are The shield member 40 is inserted into each of the second engagement hole 41 and the through hole 43 (see FIG. 4A). At this time, the engagement pieces 41a and 41a of the second engagement hole 41 are engaged with the claw portions 37a and 37a of the engagement protrusion 36, and the shield member 40 is moved to the mechanism set board 30 (the attachment portion 35). (See FIG. 4 (b)). In this state, the first protrusions 25 and 25 formed in the main controller 20 are inserted into the openings 38 and 38, and the engagement protrusions 36 and 36 are connected to the first engagement of the main controller 20. It inserts in each of the joint holes 24a and 24a (refer FIG.4 (c)). At this time, the claw portions 37a, 37a of the engagement protrusions 36, 36 abut against the first engagement holes 24a, 24a, and the hooks 37, 37 are elastically deformed in a direction close to each other, and When the claw portions 37a, 37a come out of the first engagement holes 24a, 24a, the hooks 37, 37 are elastically restored, and the claw portions 37a, 37a are supported to form the first engagement holes 24a, 24a. The main controller 20 is attached to the mechanism set board 30 (attachment part 35) by engaging with the rear end surfaces of the parts 24, 24 (see FIG. 1).

このように、主制御装置20およびシールド部材40の個々に対応した取付部35を機構セット盤30に形成する必要がないから、該機構セット盤30にスペース的な余裕を設け得ると共に、加工コストの低減も図り得る利点がある。また、前記シールド部材40の第2の突出部42,42に、前記機構セット盤30側(前方)に傾斜する傾斜面42a,42aを設けたことで、該シールド部材40を取付部35に取付けた状態であっても前記開口部38,38に前記主制御装置20の第1の突出部25,25を容易に挿入することができ、当該主制御装置20の取付け作業を容易に行ない得るようになる。   Thus, since it is not necessary to form the attachment portions 35 corresponding to the main controller 20 and the shield member 40 in the mechanism set panel 30, it is possible to provide a space margin in the mechanism set panel 30 and to reduce the processing cost. There is an advantage that can be reduced. The shield member 40 is attached to the attachment portion 35 by providing the second projecting portions 42, 42 of the shield member 40 with inclined surfaces 42a, 42a that are inclined toward the mechanism set panel 30 (forward). Even in such a state, the first protrusions 25 and 25 of the main controller 20 can be easily inserted into the openings 38 and 38 so that the main controller 20 can be easily attached. become.

なお、前記取付部35から主制御装置20取外すに際しては、前記機構セット盤30側の係合突部36,36(フック37,37)を弾性変形させて、該係合突部36,36と主制御装置20の第1の係合孔24a,24aとの係合を解除すると共に、前記第1の突出部25,25を前記開口部38,38から抜き出せばよい。同様に、前記機構セット盤30側の係合突部36,36(フック37,37)を弾性変形させて、該係合突部36とシールド部材40の第2の係合孔41との係合を解除した状態で、前記第2の突出部42,42を前記開口部38,38から抜き出せば、シールド部材40を取付部35から取外すことができる。すなわち、実施例1に係るパチンコ機10では、前記主制御装置20およびシールド部材40の取付部35への着脱作業に際して、工具等を使用する必要がないから、作業を容易に行なうことができる。   When the main controller 20 is removed from the mounting portion 35, the engagement projections 36 and 36 (hooks 37 and 37) on the mechanism set panel 30 side are elastically deformed to be engaged with the engagement projections 36 and 36. The engagement with the first engagement holes 24a, 24a of the main control device 20 may be released, and the first protrusions 25, 25 may be extracted from the openings 38, 38. Similarly, the engagement projections 36 and 36 (hooks 37 and 37) on the mechanism set board 30 side are elastically deformed, and the engagement between the engagement projection 36 and the second engagement hole 41 of the shield member 40. The shield member 40 can be removed from the attachment portion 35 by pulling out the second protrusions 42 and 42 from the openings 38 and 38 in a state where the joint is released. That is, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, it is not necessary to use a tool or the like when attaching / detaching the main controller 20 and the shield member 40 to / from the attachment portion 35, so that the operation can be easily performed.

次に、実施例2に係るパチンコ機について説明する。なお、実施例2に係るパチンコ機は、前述した実施例1に係るパチンコ機10と基本的に同一の構成のため、同一の部材には同一の符号を付して詳細な説明は省略する。   Next, a pachinko machine according to the second embodiment will be described. Since the pachinko machine according to the second embodiment is basically the same in configuration as the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment, the same members are denoted by the same reference numerals and detailed description thereof is omitted.

実施例2に係るパチンコ機10では、図5に示すように、前記機構セット盤30に形成する取付部35として、前記開口部38,38に代えて、上方に向けて突出する軸部51,51(図5には上側の軸部51のみを図示)を形成してある。すなわち、実施例2に係るパチンコ機10の取付部35は、前記機構セット盤30の後方に向けて突出形成された前記係合突部36,36と、該係合突部36,36から離間する位置に上方に向けて突出形成された軸部51,51とから構成される。   In the pachinko machine 10 according to the second embodiment, as shown in FIG. 5, instead of the openings 38, 38, shaft portions 51 that protrude upward are used as the attachment portions 35 formed on the mechanism set panel 30. 51 (only the upper shaft 51 is shown in FIG. 5). That is, the attachment portion 35 of the pachinko machine 10 according to the second embodiment includes the engagement protrusions 36 and 36 that are formed to protrude toward the rear of the mechanism set board 30 and the engagement protrusions 36 and 36.

一方、前記主制御装置20には、前記第1の突出部25,25の端部に、上下方向に貫通して前記軸部51,51を挿入可能な第1の軸孔53,53(図5には上側の第1の軸孔53のみを図示)が形成されており、同様に、前記シールド部材40には、前記第2の突出部42,42の端部に、上下方向に貫通して軸部51,51を挿入可能な第2の軸孔55,55(図5には上側の第2の軸孔55のみを図示)が形成されている。すなわち、前記主制御装置20には、前記係合突部36,36と係合可能な第1の係合孔24a,24a、および前記軸部51,51を挿入可能な第1の軸孔53,53を設けると共に、前記シールド部材40には、該係合突部36と係合可能な第2の係合孔41、および軸部51,51を挿入可能な第2の軸孔55,55を設けてある。   On the other hand, the main controller 20 includes first shaft holes 53 and 53 (see FIG. 5) through which the shaft portions 51 and 51 can be inserted through the end portions of the first protrusions 25 and 25 in the vertical direction. 5, only the upper first shaft hole 53 is shown). Similarly, the shield member 40 penetrates the end portions of the second protrusions 42 and 42 in the vertical direction. Thus, second shaft holes 55 and 55 (only the upper second shaft hole 55 is shown in FIG. 5) into which the shaft portions 51 and 51 can be inserted are formed. That is, the main control device 20 includes first engagement holes 24a and 24a that can be engaged with the engagement protrusions 36 and 36, and a first shaft hole 53 into which the shaft portions 51 and 51 can be inserted. 53, and the shield member 40 has a second engagement hole 41 engageable with the engagement protrusion 36 and second shaft holes 55, 55 into which the shaft portions 51, 51 can be inserted.

すなわち、実施例2に係るパチンコ機10は、前記シールド部材40の第2の軸孔55,55に、前記取付部35の軸部51,51を挿通することで、該シールド部材40が回動自在に枢支されると共に、この状態で当該シールド部材40を閉成することで、前記係合突部36と第2の係合孔41(係合片41a,41a)とが係合して、該取付部35にシールド部材40が取付けられる。更に、前記主制御装置20の第1の軸孔53,53に、前記取付部35の軸部51,51を挿通することで、該主制御装置20が回動自在に枢支されると共に、この状態で当該主制御装置20を閉成することで、前記係合突部36,36と第1の係合孔24a,24aとが係合して、該取付部35に主制御装置20が取付けられる。すなわち、実施例2に係るパチンコ機10も、前述した実施例1に係るパチンコ機10と同様に、ノイズ発生源としての前記電源制御装置21と、該電源制御装置21からのノイズから保護すべき前記主制御装置20とが前後に重なる位置関係で対向配置されると共に、当該電源制御装置21と主制御装置20との間にノイズを遮断するシールド部材40が位置するよう構成されている。   That is, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the second embodiment, the shield member 40 is rotated by inserting the shaft portions 51, 51 of the attachment portion 35 into the second shaft holes 55, 55 of the shield member 40. In addition to being pivotally supported, the shield member 40 is closed in this state, whereby the engagement protrusion 36 and the second engagement hole 41 (engagement pieces 41a, 41a) are engaged. The shield member 40 is attached to the attachment portion 35. Further, by inserting the shaft portions 51, 51 of the mounting portion 35 into the first shaft holes 53, 53 of the main control device 20, the main control device 20 is pivotally supported. By closing the main control device 20 in this state, the engagement protrusions 36 and 36 and the first engagement holes 24 a and 24 a are engaged, and the main control device 20 is attached to the attachment portion 35. Mounted. That is, the pachinko machine 10 according to the second embodiment should also be protected from the noise from the power supply control device 21 as the noise generation source and the power supply control device 21, as with the pachinko machine 10 according to the first embodiment. The main control device 20 is disposed opposite to the main control device 20 so as to overlap in the front-rear direction, and a shield member 40 that blocks noise is disposed between the power supply control device 21 and the main control device 20.

〔実施例2の作用〕
次に、前述した実施例2に係る遊技機の作用につき以下説明する。前述したように、ノイズ発生源としての前記電源制御装置21と、該電源制御装置21からのノイズから保護すべき前記主制御装置20との間に導電材で形成したシールド部材40を配設したから、ノイズによる主制御装置20や電源制御装置21の誤作動を確実に防止し得る。また、前記主制御装置20と電源制御装置21とを前後に重なる位置関係で対向配置すると共に、主制御装置20とシールド部材40とを夫々独立して前記機構セット盤30(取付部35)に取付けるようにしたから、前述した実施例1に係るパチンコ機10と同様の作用効果が得られる。
[Operation of Example 2]
Next, the operation of the gaming machine according to the second embodiment will be described below. As described above, the shield member 40 formed of a conductive material is disposed between the power control device 21 as a noise generation source and the main control device 20 to be protected from noise from the power control device 21. Therefore, it is possible to reliably prevent malfunction of the main controller 20 and the power supply controller 21 due to noise. Further, the main control device 20 and the power supply control device 21 are opposed to each other in a positional relationship that overlaps in the front-rear direction, and the main control device 20 and the shield member 40 are independently attached to the mechanism set panel 30 (mounting portion 35). Since it is made to attach, the same operation effect as the pachinko machine 10 concerning Example 1 mentioned above is obtained.

また、実施例2に係るパチンコ機10は、前記主制御装置20を前記取付部35の軸部51,51および第1の軸孔53,53を介して回動自在に枢支するようにしたから、該主制御装置20の制御基板を検査等するに際して、該主制御装置20を回動させるだけで当該主制御装置20におけるシールド部材40(機構セット盤30)の対向面側も確認することができるから、作業性が向上し、検査等の作業を容易に行ない得る利点がある。また、前記シールド部材40も前記取付部35に対して回動自在に構成したことで、該シールド部材40で覆われた前記電源制御装置21に交換・メンテナンス作業等の必要が生じた場合であっても、当該シールド部材40を取外すことなく回動して該電源制御装置21を露出させればよいから、作業時にシールド部材40を紛失することはない。   Further, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the second embodiment, the main control device 20 is pivotally supported through the shaft portions 51 and 51 of the mounting portion 35 and the first shaft holes 53 and 53. Therefore, when the control board of the main control device 20 is inspected, the opposing surface side of the shield member 40 (mechanism set panel 30) in the main control device 20 is also confirmed simply by rotating the main control device 20. Therefore, there is an advantage that workability is improved and work such as inspection can be easily performed. In addition, since the shield member 40 is also configured to be rotatable with respect to the attachment portion 35, the power supply control device 21 covered with the shield member 40 needs to be replaced or maintained. However, since the power supply control device 21 may be exposed by rotating without removing the shield member 40, the shield member 40 is not lost during the work.

そして、前記取付部35から主制御装置20を取外すに際しては、前記係合突部36,36と第1の係合孔24a,24aとの係合を解除すると共に、該主制御装置20を上方にスライドさせて、前記第1の軸孔53,53から前記軸部51,51を抜き出せばよい。同様に、前記係合突部36とシールド部材40の第2の係合孔41との係合を解除した状態で、該シールド部材40を上方にスライドさせて、前記第2の軸孔55,55から前記軸部51,51を抜き出せば、シールド部材40を取付部35から取外すことができる。すなわち、実施例2に係るパチンコ機10であっても、前記主制御装置20およびシールド部材40の取付部35への着脱作業に際して、工具等を使用する必要がないから、作業を容易に行なうことが可能である。   When the main control device 20 is removed from the mounting portion 35, the engagement between the engagement protrusions 36 and 36 and the first engagement holes 24a and 24a is released, and the main control device 20 is moved upward. And the shaft portions 51, 51 may be extracted from the first shaft holes 53, 53. Similarly, in a state where the engagement between the engagement protrusion 36 and the second engagement hole 41 of the shield member 40 is released, the shield member 40 is slid upward to form the second shaft holes 55, If the shaft portions 51, 51 are extracted from 55, the shield member 40 can be removed from the attachment portion 35. That is, even in the pachinko machine 10 according to the second embodiment, it is not necessary to use a tool or the like when attaching / detaching the main controller 20 and the shield member 40 to / from the attachment portion 35. Is possible.

〔変更例〕
なお、本発明に係る遊技機としては、前述した実施例1および2のものに限られるものではなく、種々の変更が可能である。例えば、図6に示すように、取付部35として機構セット盤30に、係合突部36,36と、係合突部36,36側に開口する開口部38,38と、該開口部38,38の近傍において、上方に向けて突出する軸部51,51とを形成する。これに対し、主制御装置20には、係合突部36,36と係合可能な第1の係合孔24a,24a、および開口部38,38に挿入可能な第1の突出部25,25を設けると共に、シールド部材40には、係合突部36と係合可能な第2の係合孔41、および軸部51,51を挿入可能な第2の軸孔55,55を設けるようにする。すなわち、機構セット盤30の取付部35に対して、シールド部材40を着脱および回動自在に枢支すると共に、前記主制御装置20を着脱可能に取付けることでも、前述した実施例1および2と同様の作用効果を得ることができる。更にこの構成であれば、実施例2に係る構成と較べて、前記主制御装置20を前記取付部35から簡単に取外すことができるから、該主制御装置20のメンテナンス作業等を容易に行ない得る。なお、前述した実施例1および2と同一の部材については同一の名称および符号を付してある。
