LB-8A

 

The Clever Little Box LB-8A is a compact, contact-closure triggered media player. It is intended for use in commercial audio installations where it may be necessary to playback pre-recorded audio tracks such as chimes, music and announcements on-demand via contact-closure triggering. The system could be particularly useful in theme parks and museums, retail environments, schools and airports. Providing on-demand tones, sound effects or messages via computer controlled, timed or switched contact closure. Integration into larger PA systems could be achieved with the use of a suitable pre-amplifier, mixer or mixing amplifier with priority line level inputs such as the Cloud MPA240.

Up to 8 audio tracks (files) of any duration can be stored on a single 4GB SDHC memory card (supplied), which is mounted internally to prevent unauthorised removal or content modification. Eight sample tones are supplied: Whoop, Two-Tone, GMP pips, Continuous, 4 note chime ascending, 4 note chime descending, Ding Dong and 4 note chime ascending soft. The LB-8A is compatible with FAT32 format, WAV audio files with sample rates up to 22.05 KHz. Eight voltage free (dry) contact closure screw terminals trigger playback of the corresponding audio file. Terminal T1 corresponds to File 001, T2 to File 002 and so on. A small editable command file (script) is stored on the SDHC memory card and is used to determine the 'playback mode'. Modes offered include 'Non-interruptible', 'Interruptible', 'Holdable' and 'Script' (default). It is also possible to modify the 'Trigger Modes'. Options include 'Close Contact' (default), 'Open Contact', 'Make Contact' and 'Break Contact'. Note: An LB-8A cannot have a mix of trigger modes across its trigger inputs. E.g. T1 cannot be set in contact closure mode with triggers T2 to T8 functioning via open contact. Trigger modes are configured in script playback.

A separate voltage free switched pair is also provided via screw terminals. This enables the control of external equipment such as muting circuits and relays during audio playback. Audio output is unbalanced line level via 3.5mm jack socket. Powering is via 15V DC PSU (supplied). An LED indicates power status.

 

Triggering audio playback
Playback is triggered via the trigger inputs. All inputs are internally pulled up and, if left unconnected, have a voltage of 3.3V (logic “1”). 5V signal is tolerated and also seen as logic “1”. Logic “0” is ground.
Each input directly triggers a corresponding file: T1 = File 001, T2 = File 002, ......, T8 = File 008.
A trigger is valid when the input is shorted to the ground for at least 50ms. The triggers are prioritized from T1 (the highest) to T8 (the lowest). However, it does not mean a higher priority input can interrupt a lower one. It only means that if multiple triggers are applied at the same time, the highest priority wins.
Playback Modes

The LB-8A will play files in one of four modes:
Non-interruptible Playback
The file is played once per trigger. The playback is not interruptible except by the system reset. Looping is possible by applying a constant trigger on the input.
Interruptible Playback
The file is played once per trigger if not interrupted. Any input (including itself) can interrupt the playback later. Looping is possible by applying a constant trigger on the input.
Holdable Playback
The file is played for as long as the input is triggered, looping if necessary. It is not interruptible except by the system reset.
Script Playback (default)
(See the Script Playback Mode section for descriptions & configuration).
Trigger Modes
Triggers are by default activated via contact closure where closure pulls the trigger to ground activating the related audio file or script command. The four available trigger modes are as follows:
Close Contact (default)
Input is continuously triggered when it‟s at 0V (ground).
Open Contact
Input is continuously triggered when it‟s left open or at 3.3V/5V.
Make Contact
Input is triggered one time as it goes from 3.3V/5V to 0V.
Break Contact
Input is triggered one time as it goes from 0V to 3.3V/5V.
Note: An LB-8A cannot have a mix of trigger modes across its trigger inputs. Eg T1 cannot be set in contact closure mode with triggers T2 to T8 functioning via open contact. Trigger modes are configured in script playback.
