    Default Procyon Ganzframe Adapters

    The Ganzframe Adapters Are Here!

    NOTE: THESE ADAPTERS ARE ONLY FOR THE REV1 and REV2 PROCYONS, MADE BEFORE DEC 2010.

    There are 2 versions:

    The $25 adapter has a connector that fits into a Procyon console on one end and a female 3.5mm stereo jack on the other which can connect to light frames like the Proteus that use that connector and no more than 2 different channels or colours.

    The $10 raw cable has a connector that fits into a Procyon console on one end and bare wires on the other. This can be used by folks that are handy with a soldering iron to build your own adapter and save a little money.

    You can order the adapters on-line at http://www.mindplace.com.

    -Andy.

    Update:

    The pre-built cables have been finished, and along with the raw cables, that are now available at Mindplace.

    This is the page for the complete adapter: Ganzframe Adapter, and the page for the raw cable is here: Ganzframe Cable.

    If you have any problems with the order or have any questions, please send an e-mail to jmoen@mindplace.com

    The pre-built ones have the 3.5mm female connector connected to the red and green outputs, so they are wired the same as the Proteus lightframes.

    A pic of the completed adapter is below.

    I am about to order one adapter . My question ( which might need to be reffered to the technicians) is whether the driver circuitry in the Procyon will drive the old style 2 colour glasses to the same level of brightness as the Proteus?

    Yes, this should work; we use the same drive transistors for both models, and trim them to about 18 ma (20 ma being their peak operating current)

    Will the adapter also work with the MindPlace Pure White Glasses?

    I'm asking because I'd like to try pure white LEDs for AudioStrobe content, but would still like to purchase the Procyon rather than the Proteus.

    This adapter will work with ANY lightframes that work with the Proteus.

    Thanks to those of you who placed orders!

    Hopefully some more will step up soon.

    Until then, I've attached some photos of how I made the adapters so that those of you looking to "roll your own" can see what's involved.

    Sorry for the late reply, I had not been here for a while and therefore was not aware about the adapters. You can imagine my surprise when I found out 2 of my issues with the Procyon had been completely solved (lightframe adapter and the disabling of auto-off). Therefore I do not wish you to mistake me not ordering with me not honoring my word, I intend to keep my word and order 2 lightframe adapters right away. Hope others that said they would buy the adapters do so to because the last thing I want is for you not to follow user request out of fear that they will not keep their end of the deal. Thanks again for making the adapters available, great support

    One suggestion if I might add, maybe making a feed available from MindPlace with news could make situations such as this one avoided, since I usually subscribe to feeds if they are available and will see them even if I don't have time to come by the forum.
