Hey guys,

I've been trying to help somebody on the Sensor forum, but I've never heard of this controller and I suspect a "Prop controller" means prop as in drama prop, and that this is not a propeller-chip based product. True?

Yes, "prop controller" in this case means a controller for (dramatic) props. Two of the ones that are carried by the distributor are from EFX-TEK and are Stamp based (Prop-1 = OEM BS1 and Prop-2 = OEM BS2).

As in Stage Props. They might use Jon's EFX-Tek Prop-1 board.

EDIT: DARN! Mike types faster than me!!

Mike and Publison,

thanks so much for clearing that up. And double thanks to you, Publison, for providing the guy with a suggestion on the Sensor forum. I didn't want to lead him astray.

cheers!
