  • *Available for Preorder* Fusion Brain USB I/O board

    Preorder Available Now! Hurry before they are gone: http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/store.php



    news!

    I have good news and bad news.

    The bad news:

    The people in China have had delays associated with getting the sensors to their factory. Our estimated ship date is now June 14th.

    The good news:

    To make up for the delay, we are including a free volume control with every preorder. This includes future preorders, so if you haven't ordered, go ahead and you will still get the free volume control.

    of course, if you wish, we can refund you preorder. again, we are sorry about the delay, but it is something out of our control. We are including the volume control as a means of making up for it. we apologize for any inconvenience.






    Details
    Smaller than an iPod or laptop hard drive, the Fusion Brain is in a league of its own. Measuring at 3” x 3”, it is fully equipped with 12 digital outputs, 4 digital inputs and 10 analog inputs; it is geared towards sensing and controlling many devices. The Fusion Brain is fitted with headers to allow for connection of modular relay boards, expanding the range of applications while maintaining ease of installation and use.

    Typical applications include hydraulic/suspension control, HVAC/climate control and interior/exterior lighting control. Additionally, the Fusion Brain can be configured with several sensors to monitor engine temperatures, mass air flow, throttle position, vacuum pressure, ambient light, ambient temperature and triple axis acceleration.

    Additional key features of the Fusion Brain include:
    • 0 mA draw from USB bus – device is completely externally powered to isolate noise and interference
    • [email protected] current sourcing per channel of Digital Output – enough to directly drive most relays
    • 10-bit ADC conversion ensures accuracy to .005vDC

    Development Tool Support
    A skinnable application is provided for control and configuration of the Fusion Brain.

    Accessories
    3-axis Accelerometer
    Light Sensor
    Temperature Sensor (-10C to +125C)
    50 amp Current Sensor

            Very, very cool guys.

            I know I want one and will order one at some point....

            It's products like this that are going to take this hobby to the next level...

            Congrats & kudos to everyone involved.
            Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
            How about the Wiki?

                        Great

                        Hi there, this looks great! I have just a couple of questions, maybe you can help?

                        Does this board happen to have a counter as well? I need to be able to count pulses. The hardware needs to do it (as opposed to the PC) because the pulse will be operating at about 60HZ.

                        Also...what do you use your accelerometers for? How do they work?

                        I am looking into a roading project where by I measure the 'roughness' of the road. Currently this is achieved by way of a transducer measureing the displacement of the axle to the vehicle body. I would love to somehow be able to replace this with some sort of inertia sensor or accelerometer. Essentially I need to be able to measure how big a bump in the road is!

                        Similiar to a bump intergrator.

                        Thanks for your help,

                        Kiwi.

                          I just ordered 2 brains & a few sensors... please make these boards have different adresses than my beta board

                          these things are so cool, I think you'll sell a lot of them... stock up
                          MY NEWEST INSTALL:modded infiniti fx with big screen

                          first windows carpc install........my liquid cooled LVDS screen :D

                            The best it can reliably measure is about 30Hz. This is due to firmware inefficiencies, but it's not real high on the list of upgrades, because none of our sensors need sample rates that night.

                            The accelerometer would work fine for your application.

                              Thanx, OBTW, ordering 4 relays didn't work either, I had to order 2 2 relay packs. Why are there both two pin and three pin extensions? Which works with what? I need extensions on all six accessories I ordered (2 temp, 4 relays), what extension mix do I need?
