Frequently Asked Questions
PyroSure does not use CAT5 cable for communication, the cables are used for delivering a power to the Igniters. Water will not affect power delivery
PyroSure offer a module with an integrated 24 cue rail. It is manufactured from 1.5 mm sheet stainless steel. Igniters are connected directly to the rail so Cat 5 cables are not required
The cats 5 connections used in Pyro Sure are gold plated to 6U standard and will not corrode
Wash the connector with water or simply clean with a brush as you would with any connector type
Rails can be submerged in water and will not affect the performance. However continuity checks are not possible when submerged
Performance has been verified at 20m using cable with copper cores. It is possible to have longer cables but individual cable types should be tested.
No Pyro Sure has 12 channels to select from. The Controller scans all channels to select an energy free frequency before establishing a secure personal network
No the network is secure and every component has a unique address used to receive signals. However mobile phones operate between 900-1800 Mhz
It is unlikely that similar equipment will cause interference. However if it does simply switch off your equipment and start the Controller. It will find a clean channel and set up a new network ?
Modules would not be able to transmit in the network and a fault would be indicated
No, the network requirement is that at least one module be visible to the controller. However time permitting simply raise the all of the modules off the ground. Rail 24 are 700 mm in length , if they are secured in a vertical position it will greatly increase visibility and range.
Components used in the controller have extremely low power ratings, a set of rechargeable batteries can fire several shows. The average power consumption is 125 ma.
PyroSure uses 3 super efficient capacitors each at 18000 uf which when charged can produce the stated power.
Our capacitors can be charged several hundred times from one set of batteries.
4 AA batteries can fire several shows depending on how long they are operating each time.
Once only for 24 cues. In certain circumstances where thousands of igniters are connected to a module then the capacitors would require to be recharged.
Pyrosure have AA rechargeable batteries available that are rated and tested at -20.
