NEW PRODUCT – Art Controller Relay Board Kit

Window-339

NEW PRODUCT – Art Controller Relay Board Kit. The Art Controller is a multitalented, stand-alone relay module with microcontroller based timing and logic. Easier to adjust and more versatile than most other low-cost time-delay relay modules, the Art Controller can switch AC or DC loads and is reprogrammable to handle the most specialized applications.

Window-1-199

The Art Controller gets its name from its inspiration. It was originally suggested by San Francisco Bay Area kinetic artists Christopher T. Palmer and Nemo Gould as a stand-alone device for triggering activating electronic art pieces that need to run for a little while after a button is pressed or a coin is inserted into a slot. And while it can do that (very well), it can be used in countless other jobs where you need to switch on (or off) an electronic load with a relay and timer.

Hardware features:

  • Recommended load rating: 24 V DC/40 VAC, 5 A (10 A, normally-open, only).
  • Screw terminals for relay contacts.
  • DIP switches to set timing.
  • Power indicator and relay state indicator LEDs.
  • On-board 5 V regulator; runs from 7-15 V DC, or can be run from 5 V directly.
  • Screw terminals for trigger and input power. Location for optional DC power barrel jack.
  • Pre-programmed AVR Microcontroller (Atmel ATtiny2313A), with 6-pin programming header

Standard timing features:

  • Time delay can be set from 1 second to 31 hours.
  • Time delay is set by DIP switches; no need to guess and check timing with an adjustment dial.
  • Auxiliary cancel-trigger input, halts operation immediately.
  • Can be triggered by any low-going signal, or external button, switch, or coin acceptor.

Versatile operating modes:

  • Can be run as a one-shot or repeating (automatic cycling) timer.
  • Can be configured to cancel the trigger if a second trigger input is received.
  • Can be set to automatically trigger at power-on.

And, that’s just with the standard firmware. You can customize every bit of the Art Controller’s behavior to your heart’s content by reprogramming the microcontroller.
