System Controller
for Team-Box & Deluxe Tournament Master systems

 


Picture shows side that faces moderator.

 
Description
 
 
The heart of the Tournament Master lockout system is the System Controller. This device monitors the player and team modules. When someone buzzes in, the controller emits a tone and locks out the other players.

No ties are possible! The System Controller uses a high-speed microprocessor that -- with our exclusive Player ID circuitry -- instantly identifies who buzzed in first.

Industrial-grade circuit designs are used throughout the Controller to ensure many years of trouble-free operation.

Our Buzzer has 2 tones!

* higher-pitched "beep" when a player on
   team A or C buzzes in
* lower-pitched "beep" for teams B & D.

The buzzer has a 2-position volume control on the rear panel.

* loud - the buzzer is loud enough for a large room
* soft - quiet enough for a classroom.
