Expanding your 10 Q/CD
Many of our 10 Q/CD customers have expanded their
firing capabilities from 10 shots to 20, 30, 40 even 60 shots.
They have done this
by adding an 'AB' Data Switch Box, extra cables, and extra slats.
Pictured to the left is front and back panels
of a typical 'Data Switch'.
The 'AB' switch box is readily available from
computer supply houses. It is basically used to switch
from one printer to another. However, it can be used to
switch from one slat to another. Therefore,
by hooking up the output of the 10 Q/CD to the I/O of the 'AB' switch
box, and two cables from the switch box to two slats
out in the field, you can fire 20 separate cues. Fire
10 cues on 'A', then switch to 'B' and fire another 10 cues.
Although still called 'AB' switch boxes, these units also
come in 3, 4 and even 6 outputs. Voila, a 60 shot firing
system for small money.
