The EnerGI Maestro is a custom circuit board that takes the 4 General Illumination (GI) strings that are normally controlled by a single relay (you all know the clicking in the backbox right?) and controls them individually via a microcontroller with solid state electronics and high speed PWM. This is important if you are running LEDs in your GI sockets.
What does this mean? Well for one, you have a lot of control over the brightness and ramp rate:
Each GI String is individually programmable
Set the maximum brightness for each GI string of LEDs
Set the minimum brightness for each GI string of LEDs (you can elect for dim instead of fully off)
Set the rise speed and fall speed for each GI string of LEDs (full range, from fast to a very slow, several seconds of rise/fall)
Push-button control for easy programming on the fly
Plug and play
No more seizure multiball! Slow those LEDs down. Kep them from extinguishing all the way to provide a more pleasant flash that saves your eyes and improves your gameplay. Make your LEDs act just like incandescent bulbs. Stop that backbox from flashing, and bring its brightness down. You can do any or all of these things and more!
