Setup TruGolf Golf Simulator – We’re going to begin the installation of the TruGolf simulator. TruGolf Golf Simulators utilize high-speed camera technology to capture Ball and Club Data for each shot hit on an indoor golf simulator. The photometric launch monitor, combined TruGolf’s golf simulation engine, recreates the unique physics of the game of golf. After each swing is taken in a TruGolf Simulator, the software provides an in-depth analysis of all Club and Ball Data, in addition to the virtual reality gameplay. The proprietary software engine, E6 CONNECT, features LiDAR Scanned recreations of world-class golf courses, accurate within centimeters of the real-world counterparts.

1. Acoustic sensors
Locating the three acoustic sensors, and these sensors may be in sleep when you receive them. Go ahead and remove that, and set them aside. As we are not going to need them for this installation, and then we are going to locate three long wires, and these wires are the wires that the acoustic sensors attached to. And you will notice that one is longer than the other. The longer of the three wires is the center wire.
2. Install the wires
Next, we are going to attach the three acoustic sensors to the three wires. Next, we’re going to install the largest of the three wires into the impact screen, and we’re going to take the nonacoustic sensor in, and we’re going to actually feed that through a hole in the center of the top section. We’re going to push it all the way through to the back. Once we have fed enough wire through, we can actually go around to the back of the studio and begin pulling the wire up. And once it gets to the top canopy, we’re going to stop and not pull it all the way through.
Then we are going to actually place the acoustic sensor into a loop in the top canopy and place point the front of the acoustic sensor towards the screen. Please be very diligent, and do this properly, as failure to do so will cause miss reads with the simulator. And now, we can go around to the back of the studio once again, and start feeding the rest of the wire underneath the screen.
Once again, we’re going to go around to the front of the screen, and we’re going to go ahead and grab the other end of the acoustic sensor wire. We’re going to go ahead and start feeding it around the edge of the mat system and down the side of the canopy as we want to hide this wire. Next, we’re going to grab one of the two remaining acoustic sensor wires. I’m going to go ahead and feed it around the edge, and then we’re going to slide the acoustic sensor under the screen side.
There is another loop on the side panel, and we’re actually going to fit the acoustic sensor in that loop. Once again pointing it directly towards the screen. Now, we’re going to get out the final acoustic sensor and wire, and we’re going to place the fitting portion near the center of the mat. This is a good time to mention that it’s very important to keep your acoustic sensor wires organized so that you know which one is left, which one’s the center, and which one’s the right.
If we do not plug these incorrectly into the sensor pad, your simulator will not read correctly. We will go ahead and slide the last acoustic sensor under the side panel, and we will place it in the loop as we did on the other side, ensuring that the acoustic sensor is facing towards the screen.
Next, we’re going to get out the cable that looks like this and we’re going to place that end into the area, where the sensor pad is going to go. We’re going to run that wire around the edge, and then, we’re going to plug the opposite end into the PC. Then you’re going to locate the power cord, and we’re going to place the power cord into the sensor area. We’re going to lift up the projector box and plug it in into the surge protector.
Next, we’re going to plug the 5 wires into the sensor pad. First, we’re going to plug the power in and serial, and then the three acoustic sensors, it’s a very common mistake when the sensor pad is upside down that people get left and right confused, just make sure that you plug the left Center from the left side of the screen into the area, that says left on the sensor pad. And once again, right sensor into the right one, and then Center and then plug your serial and power. Once we’ve completed plugging in the wires, we’re going to go ahead and turn the sensor pad over. We’re gonna go ahead and tidy up all the wires, and we’re going to place them around the edges of the mass system and the side panels. Next, we’re going to go ahead and bring in the center section of the math system and place it over the sensor path.
3. Computer Software – Setup TruGolf Golf Simulator
Next, if you haven’t bought a computer with pre-installed software, you’re going to install the software. Now, put in a disk in your computer, and following the on-screen instructions. Please don’t forget to place the USB product key dongle into a USB port in your computer, and it must remain there at all times while you’re running the E6 software what’s the software has been installed.
We do have to make one note, if you do recall during the studio installation that there are variances in the distance, the projector may be away from the screen for a variety of reasons. And if that’s the case with you, if your distance is different than the studio instructional, we’re going to have to go into the software and change some settings.
