Connection possibilities

X Close

EXPANSION III adapter

The Expansion III adapter has to be sticked simply on the Fallguy MP3 module and has connections for a keyboard matrix, a LC-Display and a RS232 interface.

External series resistor

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) could not connected directly to the module, but require additional hardware.

An external series resistor (mostly one of 270 Ohm) between the module output and the LED is enough.

X Close

PullUp Resistors

The button inputs on the module must be each connected to a PullUp resistor (10 kOhm).

X Close

RS232 level converter

Using an additional RS232 level converter the Fallguy ULTRA MP3 module can be connected to a RS232 interface. The standard firmware is already prepared for this interface.

X Close

RS485 driver

Using an additional RS2485 driver the Fallguy ULTRA MP3 module can be connected to a RS485 bus. The standard firmware is already prepared for this interface.

X Close

CDSR adapter

The CDSR adapter was customer specific developed and is used to connect a touchpanel from Solitudes or Technovision to the Fallguy MP3 module.

The CDSR protocol was developed originally from Pioneer to connect CD players as audio devices.

X Close

IR receiver

By using an IR receiver a Fallguy MP3 module could be remotely controlled by an IR remote.

The specific IR remote selection and the button assignment is done through the specific customer firmware.

X Close

Additional hardware (RS485)

Using an additional RS485 driver hardware some Fallguy MP3 modules could be connected together via a RS485 bus.

This hardware also requires a small adjustment of the internal firmware (serial interface).

ULTRA Embedded MP3 module + Carrier board + Relay board

ULTRA MP3 module on ULTRA Carrier Board AMPII

The new Carrier Board AMPII complements the existing Carrier Board by a 2X25W amplifier and together with the Relay Board by 5 relay outputs. Clamping bushes are used on the new Carrier Board AMPII instead of the DSUB connectors on the old Carrier Board. The power input range is enhanced to 10-60 Volt DC. The photo shows how the ULTRA MP3 module is connected to the Carrier Board

The new AMPII casing kit for the Fallguy ULTRA MP3 module

The new AMPII casing was designed specially for the Carrier Board AMPII and the Relay Board. In a new design and made from aluminium it looks good and can be installed everywhere using mounting rails.

Casing Kit for the Fallguy ULTRA MP3 module

The casing kit (Article-No.0130) carries the Fallguy ULTRA Carrier Boards with ULTRA MP3 module clipped on. Three buttons, the SD card slot and four LEDs are on the front, on the back all the interfaces are accessible.

1x4 to 6x4 keyboard matrix

Controlling of a MP3 module could be done either by the button inputs or an optional keyboard matrix (1x4 to 6x4 buttons).

The photo to the left shows a 3x4 keyboard matrix using the EXPANSION III adapter.

LC-Display

If some information has to be shown on a LC-Display, double spaced LCDs could be connected using the EXPANSION III adapter.
