OpenPyro System

Since its launch in 2009 the OpenPyro device has got a number of prototypes and versions.
Today, having come up with the optimal solution we propose to view it in details.












Control panel:


















Core of the product (Microcontroller):
- Arduino Nano board;
- RS-485 - control over twisted pair receivers.
- RF-433 МHz receiver - simplex mode control
- USB - interface of a communication device to a PC for programming the script, and transfer control firmware embedded software control panel
- 1024 channels (up to 32 devices with 32 channels)

Controls:
- On / Off Power
- Keyboard – 4*4 matrix = 16 buttons

Indication:
- Symbol indicator – 20 symbols*4 lines
Power Source:
- From 7V to 14V - 2 lithium batteries or 12 V lead-acid batteries

Recievers:














Core of the product (Microcontroller):
Atmega8 processor with boot loader Arduino

Communication interfaces:

RS-485 - control over twisted pair receivers.
RF-433 МHz receiver - simplex mode control
Uart TTL – communication interface device for programming the firmware receiver script and re-flashing.

Channels:
Matrix 4 * 8 = 32 channels (four common "+" and eight "-") or 8 channels line out

Controls:
On / Off Power
Test / ARM mode
The device number in the network installed using sockets switches (2 ^ 5 = 32 numbers)

Indication:

Test / Start-up Mode (red LED)
Test / Run 32 channels (32 red LEDs)
The power source (red LED)
Operation (green LED)


Power Source:
From 7V to 14V - 2 lithium batteries or 12 V lead-acid batteries

Current status of the product
- 2 firing module prototypes on the circuit board (32 channels and 8 channels)
- Prototype of a remote control console on the circuit board – controlling with the keyboard or ActionBase PyroIgnitionControl
- PyroIgnitionControl, ActionBase and PT2262 encoder protocol.
