  • All LEDs are high-intensity
  • All LEDs Connected via cable and pin connector

  • Small size:  2″ x 1.5″ x 3″
  • Professionally manufactured circuit board using fiberglass FR4 stock, soldermask over bare copper (top & bottom), plated thru holes, solder-able finish, and silkscreen
  • All parts used are first grade, new, manufacturers product meeting the full manufacturers specification.

Pulse rifle boards coming

Posted by Lightbenders On September - 29 - 2010

With the help of Matsuo, undisputed master of all things pulse rifle, Lightbenders has designed a functioning pulse rifle counter.

Features include:

  • Countdown from 95 when trigger is pressed (support for either a relay or a momentary switch)
  • Powered by a small 3v battery (or a 9v)
  • Mounting holes that fit the standard pulse rifle faceplate

Like all our boards, this one will be professionally plated and solder masked.

  • 2 “steady on” LEDs (warm white)
  • 4 random blinking LEDs (red, blue, yellow, and green)
  • On / off switch
