Press the momentary push button and your model P1BS becomes active for 10 minutes.
Touch the left paddle anytime during the 10 minutes and the timer resets for another 10 minutes.
During the last minute the LED, located on the front panel, flashes 3 times every 10 seconds
to remind you that your unit is to about to shut down.
If your 9V battery drops below 7.0 volts, every minute the LED will flash 5 times to remind you to
replace your battery. BUT!!!!! No need to rush replacing your battery.
Your unit will still run for a few more hours until the battery drops below 5.5V.
Use your imagination to create your perfect paddle.
Create your own set of touch paddles using just about any conductive metal and wire
them to the model P3 circuit card. (up to 24" away)
Model P3 circuit card is so small (ONLY 1.5" W x 1.4 D x .4" H) it can fit inside most homebrew equipment.
Operates on 6 - 13.8 VDC volts. Positive Keying of 13.8 Volts or Less.
Paddle separation: > .25" (To prevent capacitive paddle interaction paddles should be separated by a minimum of .25".
However, this specification will vary with paddle size.)
This product is ideal for you to use your creativity and talent in developing your own unique paddles.
NOTE: The keyer output transistor circuit is designed to switch key input
of 13.8 Volts positive or less.
Do not attempt to use any CW Touch Keyer products with a vacuum tube transmitter
(either grid blocked or cathode keyed) without an appropriate output circuit.
Consider purchasing the “keyall” kit from Jackson Harbor Press for tube type keying.
