SS14 is a bidirectional Sequential Switch to which we added some special features.
Even though there’s no obvious way to control it at first sight, the sequence length can be set from 1 to 4 steps. The greatest of the O/I jacks used simply sets the length of the sequence.
A toggle switch on the front panel sets whether SS14 works in loop or random mode.
In loop mode, with only O/I1 used, SS14 will open/close the connection to the common I/O, following the level on the Clock input. As soon as O/I2 or up is used, SS14 will work as a traditional sequential switch.
In random mode, with only O/I1 used, the connection to the common I/O will be randomized at each rising edge on the Clock input. As soon as O/I2 or up is used, SS14 will randomly select an O/I jack within the range set by the upper limit.
The Reset input is asynchronous, and in both modes, it will force O/I1 to be selected.
On the back of the unit is a triple shunt that is used to normalize the O/Is (1>2 / 2>3 / 3>4) which can be useful when clocking SS14 with a steady clock instead of a sequenced trigger or gate.
Our hybrid 1U front panels use the dimensions as defined by Intellijel, and the open slots make these compatible with cases using the Pulp Logic format.
Our 1U modules use a standard IDC power connector.
