Centipede 416–AC Power Box
The Centipede 416-AC is functionally identical to the Centipede 416, except it does not contain an internal battery. So, if portability is not an important consideration for you, this model is a good choice. Simply plug it in. External batteries are available from several suppliers if you want to occasionally take your device ‘on the road’.
Centipede Power Boxes are controlled via WIFI and powered by a Linux computer. This provides unique features not available on other devices. The Centipede creates a hotspot (WIFI) to which you connect using a tablet, smart phone or laptop computer. Once connected to the hotspot, you will be able to use the browser on that device to control all the features. This method of connection and control creates a versatile and user-friendly visual interface. For example, you can operate the system from a distance and without the hassle of wires between you and the device.
The heart of a Centipede Power Box is a powerful general-purpose computer which has been programmed to control the outputs based on user specifications, audio inputs, user pre-programmed sequences and/or external contact points. All the software and firmware needed to operate the Centipede are contained on an SD card. Think of the SD card as the computer's hard drive. So, by changing the SD card, you can upgrade or change functionality of the system. The software in the Centipede is open source. We expect this system to continue to develop over time, as new features are added, new waveforms are created, and new ideas evolve. So with the Centipede's SD card, upgrading is simply a matter of downloading a new file and flashing it into the card.
The Centipede 416-AC can be expanded by adding external boxes we call 'pods'. Three types of expansion pods are available: dual channel eStims, dual channel vibrator drivers, and dual channel relay drivers.
With all this functionality, Centipede 416-AC does a lot more than output eStim signals. We tend to think of it as a play space controller! Check out the Owner's manual at http://centipede.serve101.org/
