The Hydra has 9 inputs + Motion input + DMX input and 8 sinking outputs

The Hydra has about 40 pre-programmed modes of operation that you can select.
We've taken many of our custom programs and included them at no charge!

  • Up to 25 pushbtton / trigger inputs
  • Motion sensor input with user selectable re-trigger delay
  • DMX512 input to control a Sprite from DMX
  • Delayed file trigger mode
  • Next file / previous file trigger mode
  • Can control 2 Sprites in some modes
  • Telephone type keypad mode for up to 99 triggered files
  • Alternate loop and trigger files modes
  • The default mode has up to 8 pushbuttons to play 8 files + 8 outputs
  • Turns on each output while the corresponding file 1 to 8 is playing
  • The outputs are for 5 to 24 Volts DC for small lamps or relays
  • Can drive relays to control larger voltages and loads
  • Plugs into the Sprite® with the included cable
  • Powered from the Sprite®
  • External power supply required for the outputs, not included
  • Screw terminals to connect pushbuttons and outputs
  • Based on a PIC processor, it can be re-programmed
  • We can provide custom programming to do many things

We can custom program the Hydra for you

There are endless ways we can program the Hydra to interact with the Sprite®.
Just tell us what you need and we'll give you a quote.
Here are some examples:

  • Use pushbutton inputs to go to the next or previous file
  • Use an input to select a different loop file
  • Use buttons to increase and lower volume
  • Use buttons to step through the video files
  • Add time delays at different points
  • Program a sequence or "code" required to play a file
  • Add ultrasonic range sensor and program file to play at certain distance

Got an idea? If you can think it, we can probably make it.
