**New version shipping! Will replace 'tweezer configuration' with switches and buttons. Otherwise operation will be the same. The new version will be the FX51 and come in digital and analog versions. The analog will be very similar to the FX50 with additional protection and a new programming interface. The digital version will add network-ability (up to 8 more, lost cost sensors) and detect rotation!
New Version Here
The FX50 is a reed switch replacement with an intelligent controller. It can be configured to detect various magnetic fields and then switch outputs and drive devices like maglocks directly. Completely solid-state design, no clicks from the sensor or the output. Six output modes: active high, active low, pulse high, pulse low, set and clear.
While reed switches can be reliable, they are not always optimal for escape game props. The FX50 allows a prop designer to control loads directly, up to 2A. It can also act as normally open or normally closed and generate pulses or latch.
Additionally, the FX50 can detect polarity and can be configured to only trigger in a narrow range. This can be used to discriminate between 4 different objects.
