Sixteen Analog Output Smart or Dumb Brick

Model: Br-ANA
  • Sixteen 0-10 vdc outputs with eight or twelve bits of resolution
  • Uses a Sd or Sd-HC flash card to store shows
  • DMX-512 i/o allow the Br-ANA to be used standalone, or as a master or a slave as a part of a larger control system
  • Outputs are oversampled to 120 Hz, no matter what the data input rate is. This makes the outputs smooth enough to run even the largest motion bases
  • Analog endpoints can be adjusted anywhere within the 0-10 vdc range, and even reversed

The Br-ANA is used when you need to control anything that needs a 0-10 vdc analog control voltage. These include animated shows, lighting, motion base simulators, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, special effects, signs, fountains, and more. A Digital device is either on or off, like a light switch. An Analog device is on, off, or at any point between. A common example of an analog device is a lamp dimmer. In animation, analog movements give the fluid, lifelike movements needed to bring an animated figure to life.

  • Uses a Sd or Sd-HC flash card to store shows
  • DMX-512 i/o allow the Br-ANA to be used standalone, or as a master or a slave as a part of a larger control system
  • Outputs are oversampled to 120 Hz, no matter what the data input rate is. This makes the outputs smooth enough to run even the largest motion bases
  • Analog endpoints can be adjusted anywhere within the 0-10 vdc range, and even reversed
  • Stores and transmits up to 256 channels of DMX-512 data
  • Accepts DMX-512 or serial RealTime data from a PC•MACs system during programming. Can be used as a part of a permanent PC•MACs system.Error checking prevents glitches from bad data
  • Operates as a ‘Smart’ Brick or ‘Dumb’ Brick:

    • - Use ‘Smart’ Brick Mode when you are using a ‘Smart’ Brick Brain as a time code reader to synchronize with an external source of time code (LaserDisc, DVD, Smpte, etc.)
    • - Use ‘Dumb’ Brick mode
  • One MByte of Flash memory for a capacity of about 37 minutes at 30 FPS and sixteen channels. Flash is factory expandable to four MBytes, or external storage can be used if needed
  • Once downloaded, show data is retained for approximately forty years, with or without power applied. A ‘Write Protect’ switch can protect show data from accidental changes
  • Up to 255 shows can be loaded onto a Br-ANA at one time
  • Indicator LEDs for outputs, Heartbeat, DMX-512 and Brick Net status, and errors on front of card
  • Networkable! In ‘Dumb’ Brick mode, four optoisolated inputs can be used to start, stop, pause, continue, or access shows. Can be controlled and Configured through the networked RS-422 port
  • Cards can be mounted in ‘inaccessible’ locations since they are adjusted through the serial port
  • Analog outputs are compatible with most Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) and intelligent motor controllers, EFB-QUAD, PID-QUAD, AMP-Bipolar, SSR-FS, etc
  • Fits any ‘Brick’ card cage. These are available with from one to sixteen slots, rack mounted or not
  • Z-Brick output allows up to sixty-four Z-Bricks. Each Z-Brick adds thirty-two digital outputs
  • Runs on any voltage from 17 to 24 vdc
