2 Channel trainable controller w/audio Precision repeatability and reliability due to digital processing. High quality audio. Internal diagnostics, status indicators, internal audio amplifier

Two control channels, each with dual sets of relay contacts. Also includes background and triggered audio channels.

Relay Channels: Four Two independent sets of relay contacts per channel (total of 4 contact sets) allow for simultaneous control of high voltage (120vac) and low voltage circuits. Current Rating: 32 Amps total Each relay channel rated at 8-amps. They may be paralleled for a total current handling capacity of 16-amps per channel or up to 32 amps per controller, AC or DC, low voltage or 120 volt. 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: 2 MIPS 2,000,000 instructions per second! Warranty: 3 Year Warrantied against defect in materials or workmanship for 3 years, including when used in commercial applications. Power: 10-14vdc, 350mA Current requirement higher if supplying power to anything other than a single Lights Alive trigger/sensor. 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.

Audio Level: LED LED audio record level indicators allow for excellent audio on first attempt. Program length: 2-1/2 minutes 2.5 minute show control. Audio record time of 2.5 minutes includes background track plus the triggered audio track. 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 Timer: User trainable Microprocessor memorizes real-time actions. Simply enter program mode and press CHANNEL buttons to activate relays. miniMANTIS™ will remember this routine when triggered. Can easily be synchronized with recorded audio. Indicators Nine Channel activity (x2), trigger, status, control, record level (x2) audio activity, LADC device present LED indicators included. Repeat Function? Yes Runs program once, then waits for next trigger in normal mode. In repeat mode the program will be continuously repeated. Starts automatically if trigger strapped at power up. Trigger Method Switch closure Compatible with all Lights-Alive brand triggers and intelligent 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 isolate and protect the microprocessor LADC Technology? Yes. All Mantis™ products are equipped with LADC (Lights Alive Direct Connect) technology. With LADC, a single quick-connect cable carries DC power and the trigger circuit to trigger/sensor. CLICK, CLICK, DONE! Screw terminals provided for connecting 3rd party triggers.

User Controls: Five TEST, CONTROL and CHANNEL 1, CHANNEL 2 and VOLUME Pluggable Connectors: Three All screw terminal connectors may be quickly unplugged and plugged into a replacement controller in the unlikely event of a problem, thus reducing down time Volume Control Yes, for audio out An audio level control is provided for audio out. This allows you to easily match the output of the miniMANTIS-2 to your amplifier or amplified speakers.

Audio Quality: 12k sample rate 50% higher sample rate than competition, thus yielding excellent audio. Daisy Chain: Yes Multiple controllers can be daisy-chained thus requiring only a single power source and/or a single trigger

Prop Test :Yes When idle, pressing CHAN 1 or CHAN 2 will trigger relay to test prop without need to run program. Memory Protect: Memory protect mode eliminates the possibility of accidental program erasure. Program also retained during power failure. Global Erase: Yes Global erase is provided to erase all programming with on quick action All specifications are subject to change without notice. 041410
