Chest Light Boards Available! New Design!

    Chest Light Boards Available! New Design!

    I make chest light boards. Please PM me if you're interested in buying one or have questions. They are $50 + shipping.



    For those that have seen my boards before, these are a new, single chip (PIC micro controller) design, as well as a new component layout.

    That looks pretty sweet man

    Is that a 4 AA bat pack ? And I can't tell for sure, is that an On/Off switch ?

    Can the bat lead be made longer if needed, or would we need to customize that?

    Thanks,

    FP

    Yes, the battery pack houses 4 AA batteries and has an on/off switch. I can make the power cord as long as you want (within reason).

    Very interested
    Can we see a side view & possibly the animation sequence?

    Also, the dimensions of the lights would be appreciated

    Nice price!

    The dimensions of the of the board its self is approximately 7cm x 4cm. The bottom segment's characters are 1cm x 8mm. The lights are spaced 8mm apart from the top of the segments to the bottom of the top lights. The total thickness is about 1cm.

    Yes, these are the ones I sell on eBay.

    Might want to mention the "deluxe" version - are you still making that one?

    Re: Chest Light Boards Available! New Design!

    Yes, I can still make the deluxe version. That version is basically the same as what's pictured above with the exception of larger lights accross the top. You can see some examples at http://www.fettronics.com. Note that the ones shown on my site are of the old design, but you should be able to get an idea about the size difference of the top lights.

    Re: Chest Light Boards Available! New Design!

    Maybe I'm missing something but is the only difference between the standard and deluxe versions the rate at which the lights blink?

    The deluxe has more accurate larger lights on top.

    Foxbatkllr is correct. The lighting sequence and rate is the same between the two versions.

    I received my Deluxe chest light with new PIC micro-controller and it's fantastic! The LED displays are bright and the sequencing is spot on! Nice job Jon and thanks!

    cheers.

    I don't own one of these boards..but I've seen someone make a Sintra 'frame' from 3mm to create a flat/level surface to mount the board?
    At least thats what I'm gonna do? the Armour does not allow direct application...

    Re: Chest Light Boards Available! New Design!

    Thank you TD2253. I'm glad you like it!

    Bountyone, my light slots are covered by a tinted film, so my lights rest right up against it. I just taped it down with electrical tape so I could remove it if I needed to. A touch of hot glue at each corner should make it a more permanent mount.

    Mojo-Fett's Sintra frame sounds like a good idea too. Maybe something that the board could slide in to?

    Re: Chest Light Boards Available! New Design!

    I just finished trimming the chest armor and the chest light slots so, here is a clip of my chest light temporarily attached to the back of the left chest plate. This is a Fettronics deluxe chest light with the new PIC micro-controller. The LEDs are still pretty bright even when it's behind a small piece of welder's dark green face shield visor.

    anyone who has held off on chest lights now looks like the perfect time to pick them up.

    i own 2 different sets but am considering trying these out simply for the unique design and on off switch

    I just received my chest display and it rocks! It's blinking away on my desk as we speak! I can't wait to get these installed in my armour.

    I installed mine behind my flak vest. I just cut out a window thru the vest and used industrial strengh velcro to keep em in place. worked like a charm.
