The On-AIR 85 from NotaBotYet is a universal on-air light controller designed to power and control most 12v on-air lights.  The unit is plug and play with Axia GPIO using our NotaBotYet Axia Breakout (Part #A15-B01-2) or can connect directly to the Wheatnet Logic RJ-45 ports.    The included power supply powers the control logic and provides power to nearly any 12v on-light from a variety of manufacturers like American Recorders, Titus, Sandies, CBT, and nearly any other 12v on-air light up to 900ma.  One simple open collector or dry contact closure to the ground will activate the output that will power the 12v on-air light of the user’s choice.  And……since some users like their on-air lights flashing, it can do that too…with not just one, but 14 different flashing and pulsing patterns to choose from!  All controllable from Axia GPIO or Wheatnet logic!  Let’s see your 1985 on-air light controller do that!

Inputs: Inputs are available on a convenient RJ45 connector allowing the use of standard Cat5/6 wiring to transport GPIO control within your plant.  Inputs are designed so that a standard Cat5 Ethernet cable with straight-through wiring can be used to connect the On-Air 85 directly to the logic output connector of a Wheatstone® Blade, or to the output port of our Axia GPIO Breakout. (Part Number A15-B01-2)  The inputs can also be used with any other type of GPO logic closure to ground such as computer GPIO logic cards or other open collectors or dry contact-based GPIO control signals.

Outputs:  Output to the end user’s on-air light is available on two screw terminal blocks that can accept up to 20AWG wire.  A positive (+) and negative (-) terminal are all that are needed to deliver power to the on-air light over two-conductor low voltage wiring.

Power is provided by an included +12V 1A power supply.  The +12V is also available on the screw terminal outputs and can be used as an external power input or daisy-chaining the output of the +12v supply as long as the total current does not exceed the 1A rating of the supplied power supply.

Mounting: The devices are packaged in an easy to mount ABS Plastic case.  This takes up a minimum of space in the plant and allows the end-user to employ a variety of mounting schemes based on their needs.  Mounting screws are included.  Other types of screws and mounting may be used as well, per the creativity of the end-user.
