Remote Control for the CT60 - available now!

Post by dhedberg »

Hi,

I have made a little remote-control device for the CT60e accelerator (should work on any CT60 but only tested with the CT60e so far). The receiver board is hooked up to the RST, CT60, and PWR_SW pins of the CT60 (plug-and-play), and to a 5V source and GND (will require some soldering or a customized cable).

Using a tiny remote control (looks like a car key remote control), it will let you reset your Falcon, switch between 030/060 mode and power it off, remotely. If the receiver is powered regardless of the Falcon, it can also be used to power it on. The receiver board also have pins to let you connect mechanical switches if you still want those.

I created this remote-control because I wanted to get rid of the 030/060 switch to make space for a HDMI connector (in the event of a new SuperVidel batch). My Falcon is also located in the corner of my desk, making it hard to reach the reset button and the 030/060 switch without getting out of my chair (yeah, I am lazy). This remote-control solves both of my problems. :lol:

As usual when I create something for myself, I build a few more units in case somebody else is interested. At the moment I have only 5 left. If you want one, send me a PM. First come, first served. The price for a remote control and a fully assembled/programmed/tested receiver board is 300 SEK (roughly €30 EUR). Shipping costs are not included and will be added to the total.

If demand is higher than the supply, I *may* build another batch in a month or so, but only if there are at least 10 committed buyers.

Cheers,
Daniel

So nice! I’ve been think about such a thing for a few weeks and was considering doing it myself. Count me in for one, please!

Thanks a lot!

suggest you get an Air tag for the remote, as with all remotes, they tend to go missing.

Hi,

First batch is sold out. At the moment there are a couple of people that have committed to buy if I build a second batch. For me to do so, I'd need at least 10 committed buyers. Let me know if you're interested and how many units you would buy if there was another batch.

Thanks,
Daniel

Thanks! So, with 3 more I'll go ahead and produce a second batch. Anyone?

Great! I've decided to have a go at another batch. All parts have been ordered.
Will probably take me a while before I have the time to assemble the boards (mid/late August).

Not all units of this new batch have been reserved/pre-ordered. If you're interested in one, let me know!
