|Proton Pack Integrated Light and Sound Controller Board
The integrated pack controller is an all-in-one, single board that sits
in the pack that controls everything you would ever need: The power cell
lights, cyclotron, wand bargraph, wand firing lights, wand motor, wand
static lights, optional sound board, switches! It is also programmable
and includes several different wand lighting effects.
controls the following lights on your pack:
- The gun bar graph (consisting of 16 red rectangular LEDs)
- The flickering barrel gun LEDs
- The static backlighting LEDs as seen in the gun body.
- The 14 power cell blue LEDs
- The 4 cyclotron red LEDs
- Controls optional bright xenon or LED flash unit at start of gun
- Controls optional sound board
The Proton Gun lighting is easier than ever to
implement, all you will have to do is run the wiring up to the gun. This
will allow you to have an extending barrel tip with no problem! All
other wiring for the pack lights will be included also. We are also
implementing a never before seen firing effect that is be a real eye
The sound board interface is included on the
board also, so you can add on your own sound board any time you like.
The board will support several off the shelf sound boards that are
easily installed in your pack (including our
economy sound board).

Bargraph Firing Modes
The bargraph takes on a different mode when you are firing the wand.
novel concept also gives your pack a more realistic effect.
Setting 1: The bargraph LEDs do a “wig-wag” sequence when you are firing
wand. This sequence continues until you stop firing the wand.
Setting 2: The bargraph LEDs emulate a “power bar” that extinguishes
time. When you stop firing the wand, the power bar LEDs recharge in the
background. This gives you the effect of a gun “charge” that you have to
maintain. If the power bar gets down to the last bar when you are firing
wand, the last bargraph LED will start blinking. This tells you the gun
exhausted all power. The wand barrel firing LEDs will also start to
this happens, giving you a more realistic effect that the pack has
exhausted all its
NOTE: If you are using our sound module, the firing sound will then
to a sputtering gun sound, further enhancing this novel effect!!
Once you are done firing, the bargraph goes back to its normal
mode. But the power cell charges over time, increasing every 1.5sec. So
longer you wait before firing the wand again, the higher the power bar
Using this feature with below theoretical pack operational mode enabled
gives you a pack that comes alive the more you use it!
Pack Operational Modes
This controller board offers a novel concept never before seen in a pack
It allows you to link the sequencing of the pack power cell, cyclotron,
bargraph lights together with the firing sound on the pack.
Movie mode: The power cell LEDs and the cyclotron LEDs sequence at
normal rate, independent of anything else. This is the typically setting
most proton packs with separate lighting kits (including the movie
Theoretical mode: The power cell and the cyclotron LEDs will begin to
increase their sequencing rate the longer the wand is fired. Once you
the wand, these LEDs on the pack slowly start to increase their rate and
them sequencing very fast. This gives the added effect of your pack
spinning up as you emulate firing the pack. When you let go of the fire
these LEDs start to slow down their sequencing over time. They
sequence back to their normal rate. This feature gives your pack the
synchronizing the pack lighting with the gun lights while firing –
emulating what a
“theoretical” pack might do if one existed!
In order to try and capture all of the many features this board offers
we've had to take multiple videos.
