CONTROL FOR 3 WEAPONS. Manual or automatic rearmament.
Selection of two programmes for the sabre (with or without whip-over).
Selection of a programme useful for epée teaching, which signals the hits in rapid succession.
A special control prevents the annoying continuous noise that occurs in sabre and foil when the fencers are not connected.
The FULL-ARM-05 programme can be easily updated by replacing a single electronic component.
SCORER: height of the digits 7cm, legible up to a distance of 25-30m. Count up to 99. Increase, decrease, and zero out.
CHRONOMETER: height of the digits 5.2cm, legible up to a distance of 15-20m away. Start/Stop, 1 minute pause, Load start time. The colour of the two lighted dots between the minutes and seconds clearly and immediately indicates the chronometer status. GREEN = counting; RED = stopped.
Counting the MATCHES. Signaling for fencer PRIORITY, with manual and random selection. Signaling for PENALTY CARDS. The red card automatically increases the opponent’s point score.
Membrane keyboard: sturdy and reliable (5 million contacts per key).
Sound volume adjustable to three levels. The various events are indicated by different sound signals: hit, end of time, abnormalities.
The apparatus uses two DATA-LINE sockets to connect two panel repeaters PANEL-02 or LIGHTS REPEATERS. The Data-Line sockets can be easily increased to four by using an inexpensive accessory connector. For greater safety, the Data-Line sockets are insulated electrically through the use of optocouplers.
The cables connecting to the repeaters, ordinarily provided with the latter, are regular telephone cables that can be easily extended to 100m, if necessary.
ALL the visual displays on the FULL-ARM-05, including the lights signalling hits (one red, one green, and two white lights) consist of high-efficiency LED’s (average life: 100,000 hours). Therefore, the problems associated with short life and replacement of normal filament lamps are eliminated.
Power supply: 12Vac or 12Vdc. THE ELECTRICAL POWER USED IS MINIMAL, thanks to exclusive use of high-efficiency LED’s. The maximum total power used, with two coloured lights switched on, is only 4 watts. The Full-Arm-05 can also be supplied by a small rechargeable lead-acid battery 12V, 6-7Ah. In this case, it lasts for about 30 hours before requiring recharging.
The case, made of shock-proof plastic (the front part is in polycarbonate), is resistant even to violent accidental blows with the weapons.
Dimensions: width 56cm, height 23.5cm, depth 8.5cm.
