KP-300 DMX-512 Package and Serial Outputs

Model: KP-300-DMX
  • Because many features of the Kp-300 are safety related, it has no microcontroller of any kind. With no microcontroller, there is no possibility of a software crash locking up it up
  • Membrane-style keypad to select and play up to eight different shows, start and stop the Hydraulic Power Unit (if there is one), log unoccupied seats, and pause or ‘unpause’ shows
  • Mushroom E-Stop button can be used to stop any show at any time. Turn-to-release latch is used to clear the E-Stop button. Shows must be restarted from the beginning after any E-Stop
  • Fifteen optoisolated fail safe inputs. Each can be configured to E-Stop the system, pause a currently running show, or force the HPU off as long as the error condition persists
  • If an input is used to monitor a seat belt, it can be logged to ignore an unoccupied seat. This can be done automatically, from the Kp-300 or remotely.

The Kp-300-DMX package includes the KP-300 with Br-Brain4, Br-CC10 Card Cage and cables. Click on picture for more info.

The Kp-300 is an operator panel which can be used in a Motion Base or any other Smart Brick application. With the addition of a three slot card cage on its back, the Kp-300 can become a complete motion base control system in just 5-1/4" (3U) of 19" rack space. A Smart Brick System can sync to Smpte time code or run as many as seven LaserDiscs/DVDs.

  • If an input is used to monitor a seat belt, it can be logged to ignore an unoccupied seat. This can be done automatically, from the Kp-300 or remotely.
  • More safety inputs and outputs can be added if needed by plugging one or more Kp-300 Expansion to the Kp-300. Each expansion adds 42 inputs, and 14 factory configured outputs
  • LEDs show the condition of each of the inputs or if they are set to be ignored by the seat belt logging feature
  • If an input triggers an error condition (E-Stop or show pause), a flashing red LED indicates the offending input. This allows you to catch the source of short lived error conditions.
  • The Solid state counter records the number of show cycles run. Count is retained even with power off.
  • Two input bypass busses can be used to temporarily disable error inputs from software. An example of this feature's use would be on inputs used for door sensors.
  • While these should trigger errors while the motion base is running, they must be disabled during the load/unload times
  • Blocking valve output is forced off automatically during any E-Stop or if the HPU isn't running
  • Shows can be paused either manually or by an error condition on a safety input. When a show is paused, the motion base will freeze.
  • The operator can then continue the show once the error condition has cleared, call up a show to park the motion base, or do an E-Stop to bring it home
  • When used with a three slot card cage and Smart Brick System mounted on its back, the small LCD display on the Smart Brick Brain is replaced by a large display on the front of the Kp-300
  • The Keyswitch can be used to ‘lock’ the Kp-300 to keep unauthorized shows from being run
  • The Kp-300 uses twenty-four digital outputs and twenty-four vdc power from the Smart Brick System
  • Package contents:
    • KP-300-ANA: Kp-300 package for sixteen 0-10 VDC analog outputs.
    • KP-300: An operator panel which can be used in a Motion Base or any other Smart ‘Brick’ application
    • Br-ANA: 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
    • Br-Brain4: The DMX-512 output can control up to 2048 channels on four full DMX-512 universes. Within the DMX-512 streams, eight separate 'sequencers' can be run independently of all the others, each with their own triggers.
    • MC-Sd Flash Card: Secure Digital (Sd) Flash Card
    • Br-CC10: Card Cage for one Smart ‘Brick’ Brain and two Smart 'Brick' Cards with ribbon cable connectors
    • CBL-20IDS-12: 12" 20 conductor flat ribbon cable with 20 pin IDC female connectors
    • GilderCD: CD-ROM with all of our Software & Manuals
