Sentry Controller (standalone) [Version 7]

Status: Discontinued
Reason: Outdated version

Version 7 had the resonator that was missing in version 6, as well as a smaller reset button.
The servo power jack was changed to surface-mount, and rotated 90 degrees to face the side of the board.
A small green-wire fix was necessary to fix a flaw in the PCB design (seen on bottom of board, lower left corner).
The MOSFET now laid flat against the bottom of the board, which was much more convenient than version 6. However, this mandated a layer of tape to prevent the back of the MOSFET from shorting out vias on the bottom of the PCB.

  • Replaces the Arduino + Sentry Shield combination with one simple, all-in-one solution, for a lower price.
  • Plug-in connections for the three servo motors: trigger, pan, and tilt.
  • Servo Power switch, with optional bypass solder points.
  • Supports an electric-type trigger, providing solder points for wires to the gun battery and the gun motor.
  • Standard 5.5mm power jack for servo power, with optional bypass solder points.
  • Provides solder points for wires to an optional 'disable plate' button and optional Reload Position switch.
  • Can handle up to 5A current before getting warm, for using high-torque and heavy-duty servos.
  • Status LED's for Power, Mode, Firing, and USB RX and TX.
  • 12 user-programmable digital I/O pins for your own expansions and prototyping (8 of these can also be used as analog inputs).
  • Supports USB 2.0 communication (with mini-B USB cable).
  • On-board ATMega328 processor pre-loaded with Project Sentry Gun code.
  • Fully compatible with Project Sentry Gun's code.
  • No soldering required.
