Overview     SmartFire  

The SmartFire Pyrotechnic Firing System is the most powerful computerized firing system available. 

It was designed for large volume display companies that need a reliable and flexible

system to meet a variety of display requirements.

The SmartShow software offers all of the power expected in a high-end digital scripting and firing system.  On the other hand, its point and click interface allow easy programming by the most novice of computer users.

Although it uses cutting edge technology for reliable transmission and precise 1/100 second firing, it is also flexible enough to interface with your existing analog equipment.

Durable construction in ABS weatherproof boxes, gold plated contacts, large capacity batteries, and heavy gauge XLR wires show the reliability designed into every aspect of this system.

Features

Laptop controlled real-time computerized firing

Pyromusical support with both FSK and SMTPE time code or Internal Drive

Can be configured as a wired, wireless, or hybrid system.

Accurate and programmable up to 1/100 of a second.

On-Screen Diagnostics

Up to 99 digital firing modules, each with 32 fully addressable cues

Up to 3168 cues and 63,360 e-matches per show

Self-contained rechargeable battery power system with SmartCharge

Start, stop, and resume show without loosing synchronization

Booster pack allows unlimited cable length

Physical hardware arming switch

Low output work light

Compatibility with almost any brand of legacy analog modules

Time code support allows multiple systems at multiple sites to fire perfectly in sync.

If time code stops being received, the system continues firing the show on its own internal clock.  Therefore, loss of radio station feed does not stop the show mid-display.

Rugged design from cases, to connectors, to wires can handle the harsh environment expected at a display
