***Newest version of the FX50 shipping now! Pictures to be updated shortly.***
New features: Configure with switches and a button instead of 'tweezer configuration'. Protection from cheap, non-protected maglocks.
The FX51-A 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. Build in TVS (protection device) for more resilience when switching inductive loads (maglocks). 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 FX51-A 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 FX51-A can detect polarity and can be configured to only trigger in a narrow range. This can be used to discriminate between at least 4 different objects.
