do you guys think it would be possible for me to buy a set of breakbeam eyes, then install them in a cheap continuous agitating loader. then the hopper would work with eyes like a revvy.
i have a tippmann triumph loader (http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=HgvOB09aTLfOmwd2dDoOr0WOl7otz87rHd4=?Pro ductID=L3HAqArbVw8AAAEJm87spNEj) and i was wondering if i could make it accept eyes.

i'm sure you could, its just a matter of completing the circuit.

yeah, that what i thought, but i wasn't sure if there was something else i wasn't taking into consideration.

The curcuit/board would have to be able to use eyes.
if it did, it would work.
if it didnt....your wasting your time

couldn't i just cut the wires and then make them go through the eyes somehow?

no, i think theres something in the board that makes the eyes function, they dont do it by themselves.

You need a photo sensor and a photo diode and a chip w/board with a ROM in the chip for the operation.
In a simple way. Mission!
