    Default Anyone Know of a Continuity Tester for FireOne/Starfire/etc 32 cue Rails/Slats

    Does anyone know of any testers which could plug into the standard 32 cue rail/slat to check continuity? I'm thinking it would be nice to have one when pre-building fronts, this way, you could check continuity before going to the site and maybe take care of those odd/ends like bad cue on a rail, bad match, etc in advance. I've looked around but haven't had any luck. Thinking of something along the lines like ATF has for their systems, I think ODA may have one as well (although the one I'm thinking of might have been home-made).

    This works great! Your stuff changed hands today btw, will be on it's way soon! Sorry for the smart ass answer but unless someone comes up with something it may be the only one.

    I am having one made as we speak, the panel anyway. I will be bringing a couple to MAFF. Very simple, SE120 case, 9V battery, 32 LED's.

    Very interested in this, sounds like it could be a pretty decent idea, and save some time along the way......

    LOL, that's funny as hell, I sent Mike a pm just a bit ago for your number, was gonna call and talk to you about it.

    Looking for something a little lighter to do quick testing with. I'm gonna check those boxes out when I get them from you and see if they are wired the same, if they are, they would work for what I'm doing...as long as I hook them up right. Might get ugly if 32 cues go off inside the barn

    Yea, but you'd probably have the most exciting barn for miles around.

    Tester for rails/slats from iFire might do the job.

    Hi All!

    Here's a photo of the iFire Check. It can easily fit into a belt bag or a tool pouch.
