The PFC Advanced was designed to fire pyrotechnic shows. It is a completely self-sufficient firing device that users worldwide have relied on for more than 15 years. Due to the various interfaces, this device is also ideal for complex music fireworks and multimedia shows.
The device offers a fully integrated wireless solution. No external radio modules are required. In addition, the function does not depend on any external data lines. This eliminates these frequent sources of error.
The PFC Advanced has the following interfaces for integration into multimedia shows: SMPTE Timecode and DMX512.
The device has a very large, illuminated LC display with touch operation. The menu navigation is graphical and multilingual with icons and plain text. Illuminated function keys ensure convenient operation.
Info texts can be assigned manually to each firing channel or loaded from the PC via USB. This means that you can constantly read on the display which effect will be fired next. You have the option of firing manually, automatically (firing script) or semi-automatically (mixture of manual and firing script). In all firing modes you can trigger spare channels at any time.
In manual firing mode, you can quickly access all firing channels directly via a graphically displayed keypad. A dead man’s switch and the possibility to suppress the firing channel during the running automatic firing script offers additional safety.
In addition, you can also intervene at any time with the functions ‘Pause’, ‘Cancel’ and ‘Immediately fire next channel’ during automatic firing. Firing scripts can either be entered manually or loaded into the device via the RS232 and USB interfaces.
The smallest time interval between two firing channels is 0.3 seconds, the largest 999.9 seconds. To be able to fire effects in even shorter intervals, we recommend our stepper extensions for the PFE Advanced receivers. Here the timing between the firing cues can be lowered to just 0.01 seconds. Even the most extreme applications (fast and long step sequences, dynamic speed changes) can be easily realized here.
An external firing input enables you to trigger external firings. Thus push buttons, light barriers, tear ropes and much more can be used as firing triggers.
The power supply is provided by a high-performance rechargeable battery, which allows an operating time of up to 6 hours. The status of the built-in battery is accurately displayed. In addition, you can supply the device with an external voltage source via a multifunction socket. Intelligent charging electronics ensure that the batteries are always kept at 100% availability without overcharging.
No connection to a PC is required for firing. This means for you: No laptop that reacts sensitively to temperatures, humidity and vibrations, no unstable operating systems and no error-prone cable connections are necessary!
When using receivers of the Advanced series, all relevant data can be conveniently requested and programmed at the PFC (bi-directional communication).
The RS485 interface provides the possibility to communicate with the PFE Advanced 10/100 Outputs also via cable.
