Congratulations on considering the purchase of the Merlock Digital Firing System. This system was designed as a robust, compact, and highly functional firing platform system with the intention that we can introduce a top performing digital scripting firing system that can be afforded by all. Within each module, is a MKII processing PC board that was designed by European computer programmers with direction from PYRODLITE LLC , which offers the consumer a safe and reliable system and all the firing modes, (if not more) than systems that are priced much higher. Additionally, every button and accessory was carefully chosen and placed to provide the most ergonomic design possible. The current design allows for future improvements as technology is developed and tested. The Software used on this system was designed by our partners in the UK, Lumatech Systems, and personally tested by us to ensure that it meets all of our customer’s needs. Additionally, Lumatech is very open to product suggestions and an improvement to this technology is constantly being made. Each Merlock sold comes with the firing scripting software necessary to import their own copy of FinalePro Scripting Software. Additional testing by our partner beta testing branch is on-going. In this regard, functionality and hardware improvements are constantly being considered and implemented.
In general, this system is a highly expandable digital firing system that can be scripted to fire a full pyro-musical, fired manually, fired in semi-auto mode, and fired in Step-Mode. Additionally, we developed this system to be independent of the typical expensive firing controller. You can simply use your own PC or even a pre-existing firing system to start your show! This unit is sold as a wired system, but with a small upgrade the shooter can turn any Merlock into a wireless module. This is one of the few technologies that allow you to have both wired and wireless modules working together in a firing solution to shoot a professional fireworks show.
We are now ready to open up the sales of the Merlocks.The cost of the Merlock package during the phase 1 sale is: $699 plus s/h. Finale prices are subject to change.
We have also added bi-directional module to PC continuity testing which identifies the cue number and fireworks product. This was recommended by our beta testers and was made possible by our software designer IonFire.
The system is sold with the Merlock module, computer interface, and FinaleFirer and Manual software, and (2) 10 cue standard slats for $699 and s/h only during the phase 1 sale. Users can buy additional standard or series slats. The DB25 cables are extra, and we have found the best price at monoprice.com.
