Precision repeatability and reliability due to digital processing. No obsolete analog timers.

Control Channels: One - Single control channel. Dual normally open and normally closed (trigger turns or trigger turns off) contacts provided.

Relay Channels: Two - Two independent sets of relay contacts allow for simultaneous control of high voltage (120vac) and low voltage circuits.

Current Rating: 16-Amps total. Each relay channel rated at 8-amps. They may be paralleled for a total current handling capacity of 16-amps. Relay Life 20,000,000 operations That’s more than 5,000 operations per day, 365 days per year for 10 years!

Response Time: 1/100th of a second This is equivalent to 30-40 times faster than the average person can blink their eyes.

Processor Speed: 1 MIPS 1,000,000 instructions per second!

Warranty: 3-Years Warrantied against defect in materials or workmanship for 3-years, including when used in commercial applications.

Power: 9-14vdc, 100mA Current ratings higher if supplying power to anything other than a single Lights Alive trigger/sensor. 24vdc version available as special order. Power Out: Two methods - MANTIS™ controllers supply power to all Lights Alive brand trigger/sensors via the proprietary LADC connection. Screw terminals are provided for 3rd party sensors. Prop Power Via relay contacts 12vdc, up to a maximum of 1-amp can be supplied to solenoid valves or other relays with a simple jumper, eliminating the need for other power supplies. Trigger Connection Via LADC or screw terminals All Lights Alive brand triggers/sensors connect to the controller via the LADC cable which provides trigger circuitry and power. Screw terminals are provided for 3rd party triggers.

Internal Timers: Three - Consists of three digital timers in one. When triggered, the PRE DELAY timer determines a delay (0-10sec) before the action. The EVENT TIME is programmable from 0-30 sec, then a POST DELAY timer determines the time (0-10sec) before the next trigger can occur. All three internal timers are fully adjustable by the user. Indicators Three Trigger, status and LADC device present LED indicators included.

Repeat Function: Runs program once, then waits for next trigger in normal mode. In continuous mode the program will be continuously repeated.

Trigger Method: Switch closure. Compatible with all Lights-Alive brand triggers/sensors as well as any other brand device that provides simple switch closure.

Input Isolation: Optical. All MANTIS™ controllers and intelligent sensors are equipped with optoisolators to protect the microprocessor

LADC Technology: All MANTIS™ products are equipped with LADC (Lights Alive Direct Connect) technology. With LADC, a single quick-connect cable carries both DC power and the trigger circuit to the trigger/sensor. Screw terminals are provided for connecting 3rd party triggers.

User Controls: Four - PRE DELAY (0-10sec), EVENT TIME (0-30 sec), POST DELAY (0-10 sec) & TEST Pluggable Connectors: - Two Both screw terminal connectors may be quickly unplugged and plugged into a replacement controller in the unlikely event of a problem, thus reducing down time

Many Custom configurations include, but are not limited to 24vdc operation, DC output from one or both relay contact sets, pre-programmed routines, etc. Fully assembled units, and finished boards for inclusion in your box  are available.  Multiple controllers can be daisy chained thus requiring only a single power source All specifications are subject to change without notice. 032409
