The DELight Controller is the most advanced R/C Lighting
Controller ever produced. It features high power output and unmatched
programmability in a lightweight plug-and-play package.
The controller features six programmable channels. Each
channel plays a programmed sequnce. You can select between sequences
with your transmitter. For example, you could have a set of wing LEDs
which are programmed as chaser lights above 60% input, solid on between
60% and 20%, and off below 20%. Or you cuold program brake lights which
glow dimly when a car is driving forward, but light up brightly when
brakes are applied. You could even program Morse code sequences to be
flashed out of a signal lamp on a boat. Each channel's trip point is
independent, so you can have different lights turn on at different
points. A good example of this is exhaust lighting, where the engine
glow could light at 30% but afterburner effects would not turn on until
Four of the programmable channels are programmable for current
as well as sequence. Strobe, glow and fade effects are easily
accomplished. Because these channels are true feedback-controlled
analog current sources, it is not necessary to use current-limit
resistors when using channels 1-4.
Two of the channels are high powered on/off channels, which
can supply up to two amps each. These are useful to turn large strings
of lights off and on for night flying applications. These channels can
also be used to control auxiliary systems such as smoke pumps, bomb
drops or glow-wire inverters.
If no radio signal is present, the DELight Controller will
default to a user-programmed sequence. In this manner, it can be used
as a stand-alone lighting controller for effects, even without a radio.
The DELink software used to create lighting programs has a
built-in simulator, so it is easy to preview and tweak programs without
having to make endless trips between your workbench and PC. You can
even download the software and get your programs ready before you have
the hardware, or share your lighting creations with your friends.
The DELight Controller and LEDs run from BEC
power, so we strongly advise the use of a switching BEC or RX pack if
you are running many lights at full brightness.
