Expressive Topper Lights Kit


Item description

PLEASE CAREFULLY READ EVERYTHING IN THIS LISTING BEFORE PURCHASING.

Stern's Expression Lighting is probably one of the single most eye catching things to happen to rock themed pinball games in a long time. We've taken that and extended it for those who have a topper that needs some interactive (and general) lighting! This is especially useful for owners of the Rush topper which is notoriously dark and poorly lit.

We introduce to you, the Outpost Kodelia Expressive Topper Lights Kit!! The left and right expression lights are replicated up to a bar that sits in front of the topper, along with some warm white always-on lights to provide general illumination. The always on lights can be cut down in brightness by simply cutting some of them away or installing appropriately sized current limiting resistors on their +5V lines (e.g. 130ohm 1/2w would be a good place to start), allowing you to tailor the balance of white and colored lights to your liking!

These can happily coexist with our Expressive Light Kits for the ultimate interactive lighting experience unlike anything you've ever seen on a pinball machine!! Check out the video link below to see the whole thing in action!! You can find the other kits here:

Or go with the all-in-one kit here: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1326-ninjacamp-mods/08306-expressive-lights-all-in-one-kit

The kit is low profile and black, so it blends in almost invisible with the backbox metal and uses existing screws to mount.

COMPATIBILITY DETAILS - !!READ THIS CAREFULLY!!:
This kit is compatible with Rush, Led Zeppelin, and Foo Fighters (and likely any future Stern pins to use Expression Lighting), so long as the game already has an Expression Light Kit installed. If your game does not have expression lighting, these will not work. This kit relies on the existence of the Node 2 board on the lower left side wall of the cabinet, and the light distribution board next to it. Games without expression light kits do not have these boards, and therefore will not work with this kit. In addition to preinstalled Expression Lights, this is also compatible with the Expression Light upgrade kits provided by Stern.

INSTALLATION DETAILS:
Installation will involve screwing a small interface PCB into the inside of the cabinet near the Node 2 board, plugging and unplugging wires, and sticking down and plugging in a small power transformer in the backbox.

NO soldering, NO splicing, NO permanent electrical modifications.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON POWER:
There are two versions of this kit, one is standalone, the other is designed to integrate with our All-In-One kit power supply. If you have the All-In-One kit already installed, then go with this variant and you're good to go.

For the standalone kit, it includes its own power supply. It will draw up to 1/3 of an amp (or about 17w) from the 48v CN7 power plug (when all expression lights are on full and white), but generally much less. While this is fairly low, it is up to you to ensure you are not overloading your power system with too many accessories, which could lead to game stability issues or power supply failure. If you already have something plugged into the 48v CN7 plug on the power board in the lower right side of the backbox, OR if you are buying this with one or more of our other standalone Expressive Light kits, you will need to order at least one of our 48v power splitters:

INTERFACE BOARD NOTES:
- This kit uses a completely different interface board than our other expressive light kits and will be included with both variants of this kit.

Check out the video linked below, the photos simply do not do this justice! Big thanks to Pinsider @vespula for testing this out and making the video!
