FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 1 of 1
LX Design House has been named in the Top 10 of Anthill’s SMART 100 Awards for the QuickFire Pyrotechnics Firing System
The winners of Anthill’s SMART 100 (2013) were published on Anthill’s site on 11 June 2013. LX Design House was announced as being in the Top 10 of Anthills SMART 100 index for their design of the QuickFire Pyrotechnics Firing System, which is being developed for Elite Fireworks. LX is an electronics design house based in Sydney at the Australian Technology Park.
“We’re very excited to receive this prestigious award. Awards such as this, which recognise not only the innovative nature of the design but the ability for the product to be successfully commercialised really goes to the heart of what we are striving towards at LX.
We want our clients to be successful and to see their products being sold on a global scale. This affirms that our internal engineering and design standards are world class. In addition to this, we are all particularly excited for our client, Elite Fireworks, as this award really confirms what our client has been working towards for so long, recognition that their product is not just innovative but will be changing the pyrotechnics industry for many years to come” said Simon Blyth, Director and Founder of LX Group upon receiving the award.
The QuickFire Pyrotechnics Firing System is the first firing system in Australia to use ZigBee wireless mesh networking technology and can fire manually, semi-automatically or automatically, either hardwired or wirelessly. Communication between the devices is secure with encrypted data transmitted with at a frequency of 2.4 GHz DSSS and with RF transmission strategies. In addition to allowing control signals to be repeated across multiple wireless firing units, signals can be rerouted the next available firing unit instead of relying on one main transmitter. Some of the safety and continuity features include:
• an intelligent automatic show recovery function that can detect a system error and restart the controllers within three tenths of a second – and then continue, in sync with the show, and the soundtrack;
• enabling firing units to work independently from the master unit, each firing unit holding local copies of the firing instructions – eliminating firing delay and improving the reliability of the show;
• constant heartbeat monitoring and synchronisation – the wireless units remain in constant contact with the firing unit – and will re-establish communications links if this is lost, firing the next due cue, in sync with the show, and the soundtrack; and
• a dead-man switch that must be held in by the operator for a show to continue.
