Like the other PicoBoo prop controllers, programming is easy and intuitive. Tap record, create your animation masterpiece, then push the record button and it will save your program. Changing your program is just as simple.
The PicoBoo JR has two 10 amp relay outputs brought out to a pluggable terminal block. The two relays provide the ability to control different voltages - use one to activate a light and have another work with a 12 volt solenoid. Each of the relays has both a normally-open and normally-closed contact.
At 30 frames per second, you can record two minutes of animation.
Set up the controller to activate automatically using a trigger. Hide a pressure sensing mat, use an infrared motion sensor, or even give someone a remote control to activate the program with. And if you decide you just want your program to loop continuously, just connect the minus and IN trigger pins with a little wire jumper and you're good to go.

The PicoBoo JR has a write protection function that stops irritating and problematic accidental changes and protects your carefully designed program. All of our controllers come with this crucial feature.
Yes, you simply connect a short jumper wire between (-) and (IN).
That can be done by following the instructions in this document.
Yes, you can run them from a 12V battery. More information can be found here
Yes. Most reed switches are normally-closed, so depending on your application you might have to set the trigger mode on the PicoBoo to normally-closed too. Either way it will work.
Record the sequence on the PicoBoo but wait 10 seconds before tapping record to save. That will add 10 seconds of “post delay” during which time a sensor will not be able to activate the PicoBoo.
Simply connect a short jumper wire between (-) and (IN) and it will play the program continuously.
No, the program will run to completion.
Yes, as long as the power supply is 12V DC and at least 1Amp. You can never have too many amps, but never supply more voltage!
Yes, the 12V power supply included with the PicoBoo controllers will run off of 220V 50hz power as well as 110V 60hz.
NO! Motions sensors from the hardware store are 120V AC and will burn up the controller. Only 12VDC trigger devices must be used with the controllers.
The PicoBoo and BooBox controllers can run off of a 12V battery. We recommend one with high amperage such as a car, motor cycle, or alarm system battery.
If you are using the 1Amp power supply that came with the PicoBoo it is not large enough to also power the large 1/2" valve. You need to go up to a 12V 5A power supply.
