    Drive a solenoid with Shearwater?

    Has anyone tried interfacing to a jaska solenoid with a Shearwater? I thought it would as simple as running into a small relay bit of course there is probably a lot more than meets the eye

    More importantly, what evil plans are you working on? Is a Jaska different than what a rEvo runs to make you worry about it. I always just figured that it was a simple plug and play thing with any SW controller.

    Depends if the Shearwater is a controller or just computer with external cell connection.

    Controller > yes

    Computer > no as there are no connections in the Fisher-socket to run the solenoid

    Yes, I did find out the differences between the Fisher connected predator and the hard wired version.
    I did look up some old plans using a 2n222 transistor to match the out put of my radio to drive a relay, simple stuff,. Nothing evil mad maybe, but not evil!

    Ah but did you find the difference between a hard wired Predator & a Predator Controller ? There are hard wired Predators that are only to read cells NOT control a solenoid .

    Those can be sent in and upgraded to a controller. They are the only ones that can be a controller.

    Sorry guys but we don't convert hardwired displays into controllers. For the past several years we have only sold controllers to our rebreather manufacturers. You may be lucky enough to find an analog Predator controller second hand but there's no conversion available for a monitor.

    How did Ocean Edge give me a quote to upgrade a hardwired Predator to a ECCR to make a unit hybrid rather than manual? Granted this is an analog Predator since not all of us are ready to make the digital jump just yet.
