Multi-Color sensor extension manual

General info

Multi-Color sensor extension helps with designing puzzles based on colors. It uses an additional sensor of your choice to cycle through 8 different colors.

The maximum load of the feeback connector is 50 mA. If you want to connect something with a higher current load, connect an external power supply - then the maximum load is 1A.

Multicolor sensor with 30cm (18 diodes) RGB LED takes approx. 280mA when in white color state.

Step 1

Connect any sensor to the Multi-Color sensor extension via included Ethernet cable (“Sensor” port), then connect the sensor extension to the Universal puzzle controller (“Universal puzzle controller” port).

Step 2

Connect a power supply to the Multi-Color sensor extension. Then, connect a power supply to the Universal puzzle controller.

Step 3

Once the correct color is set, the Universal puzzle controller sees the Multi-Color sensor extension as triggered.

Order of the colors

Order of colors: red, orange, yellow, green, dark blue, light blue, violet, white, no color (off).

SETTING THE WINNING COLOR

Press and hold the teaching button until its red feedback diode flashes once, then release. Now, trigger the sensor until you set the color you want, then confirm it by pressing the teaching button on the Multi-Color sensor extension. From now on, this color triggers the Multi-Color sensor extension.

SETTING THE STARTING COLOR

Press and hold the teaching button until its red feedback diode flashes twice, then release. Now, trigger the sensor until you set the color you want, then confirm it by pressing the teaching button on the Multi-Color sensor extension. From now on, this color is displayed when the Multi-Color sensor extension is connected to power.

Q&A

I want to connect my own button. How to do this?

We recommend using RGB button but you can use buttons with other colors too. (+) power line is common for all and (-) of R and G and B diodes have to go to multicolor board. You need RGB LEDs with common anode (+). Please check picture below:
