CAD-200, Rev. A; Firmware Rev. A
Cowlacious Audio Device, Model 200
We are very excited about our new line of audio boards! We have been working hard to produce an item that would work well for our customers and ourselves of course! Were haunters, so we build devices that we will enjoy using on our props!
Our new audio board allows triggered or continuous playback of WAV and MP3 audio files.
It can be triggered by a switch (not included), motion sensor (not included) , or any DC voltage from 3.3V up to 24V.
When triggered it can play back a single track or the next track. You can also have a track which plays continuously and then when the unit is triggered it will pause the playback of that track, jump to a specific track and play it, and then return to the previous track and continue playing it.
In continuous mode it can play the same track over and over, loop through all the tracks, or playback the tracks in random order.
It has a built in 3 Watt mono amplifier that can connect directly to a speaker and a stereo line-out jack for sending the sound to an external amplifier or amplified speakers (the type you connect to your computer).
In addition, we have included a DPDT relay (two electronic switches that can turn one thing off while it turns another one on) on the board so you can switch other things on or off when your triggered sound plays!
