MidiTron? Wireless Features

* Small transmitter (2 5/8" x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"); encloses internal antenna and 9v battery
* Can be worn on body
* 1000 foot range under ideal conditions; several hundred foot range possible even with obstructions * Uses 900 MHz frequency band for less interference than the increasingly crowded 2.4 GHz band
* Uses highly reliable RF chip set proven in live performance situations
* Eight selectable channels allow eight units to be used simultaneously or channel switching if interference is encountered * Continuous re-transmit of sensor values virtually eliminates drop-out or lost data
* Very low latency transmit (maximum 7 ms with all sensors enabled)
* Very low latency USB and MIDI output (actual latency system dependent)
* Normal (7-bit) and high (10-bit) resolution analog modes available
* Easily configured with menu-driven programming patch
* No network configuration required as with Bluetooth or WiFi
* Standard MIDI and USB-MIDI input/output ports
* With USB, appears on computer as a standard MIDI device with no special drivers required
* Once configured, can be used as a standalone MIDI device without a computer
* Several interchangeable styles of connector boards allow flexibility in making sensor connections * Three-pin style connector board allows direct interfacing of popular sensors available from other manufacturers

MidiTron? Features

* Small (2.5" x 3" x 1.5"): can be embedded in your project
* Powered from a 9v battery
* Economical
* Menu-driven program provided for easy configuration of inputs and outputs (Mac OS9/Mac OSX/Windows XP)
* Stores configuration in flash memory: can run stand-alone, without computer
* MIDI input and output: no special drivers required
* Up to 20 digital inputs/digital outputs/analog (PWM) outputs
* Up to 10 analog (ADC) inputs
* Input devices: switches, pots, sensors (bend, pressure, photo, magnetic, touch, temperature, accelleration, etc.) and more
* Outputs: LEDs, motors, relays, solenoids and more
* High-resolution mode (10 bits) for analog inputs
* Use for music controllers, VJ controllers, MIDI instruments, dance triggers, interactive installations, driving LEDs, motors, solenoids, relays and other robotic devices, and more...
