psus:

Config file section

Valid in machine config files YES
Valid in mode config files NO

The psus: section of your config is where you power supply units. See Voltages and Power in Pinball Machines for details about voltages in pinball machines and some electric details. Then specify to which PSU your coils are connected. This is used for power management. In some cases, MPF ,ay deliberately delay coil pulses to prevent too many coils from firing and drawing to much current from your PSU. Ball devices and drop target do this by default to ensure more consistent pulses.
