The IMPLS Launch Systems fiver is a five pad controller with a wired console. The fiver includes a 50ft ethernet cable to connect the controller to the console. It requires a 12v battery connected to the controller at the pad.
The fiver provides audible continuity test at the pads and console. A console key switch locks out arming the system. An arm switch on the controller must be switched to Arm to allow arming the controller from the console. When armed, the controller sounds a siren to warn of Arm condition. Arm may be dropped at the controller by flipping the Arm switch to Safe.
The controller is built into a wire spool so that the ethernet, launch leads, and battery connector may be spooled into one neat package.
All leads and cable wind onto the pad-side spool (Controller).
Launch one, or up to five rockets at a time. Select multiple pads and press the launch button.
Check continuity at the controller and at the console. A loud piezo buzzer indicates good continuity.
When armed, a siren sounds so that everyone is aware that a launch is about to happen.
Uses standard ethernet cable. You can buy a spare 50ft. cable for less than $10.
The controller includes a 10 amp thermal circuit breaker in case of a short circuit.
Launch leads include one 8ft, two 10ft, and two 14ft leads so you can cut them to the length you need.
Easy terminate solderless banana plugs allow you to replace damaged leads as needed.
Choose kid-friendly or full sized alligator clips for your leads.
Our Power Pack is a 20000ma/h 12v power source with a charger and USB port. It may also be used as a car Jump starter and includes battery clamps for that purpose. It connects directly to your controller with a safe EC-5 plug (included). You may choose to use your own EC-5 12v power pack but we hope you find ours a good value for $50.00. With a fresh charge it is good for full day of launches.
Clean and simple. Easy setup, operation, and tear down. All components fit together on the field and in storage too. No loose parts means no disappointments.
