INPUT TERMINAL
A single button should be connected to the 0v and In terminal connection.
A single PIR movement sensor connects to the 0V In and V+,
If using an extender box 8 signals go to “in” with 8 connections to the 0v.

Reformatting the SD Card
Before uploading new content to the
SD card you should always format the
96mm
Fixing
Holes x 2
Insert the SD card to your computer.
Within the “my computer” window
right click on the card and click format.
The SD card needs to be formatted as a
FAT 16. (FAT not FAT 32) and the volume
label must be blank. Then click start.

AUDIO FILES
Audio Files
The SB LITE reads .wav audio files from an SD card. The files must be 16-bit
mono sampling preferably at 44.1 KHz. The maximum number of .wav files you
can use with the audio player is 8, with 1 button. If you would like 8 buttons
you would need an extender which will give you 8 buttons. You will need to
assign each .wav file a specific name.

OPERATION WITH A MODE FILE AUDIO
PRODUCT MANUAL
The MODE file allows you to programme how the SB lite responds to input
signals. It is a basic text file that can be edited with any text editor such as
notepad.
SB Lite
The audio files MUST be named '01’, '02' etc. Once transfered onto the SD card
they must be positioned in the root directory.
Copying files to the SD card can take longer than the computer indicates i.e.
the computer will show that copying is finished but there is still data to be
transferred to the card. Please ensure all files have been copied to the SD card
before it is removed. The best way to confirm this is to ‘click’ the ‘Unplug or Eject
Hardware’ button in the ‘System Tray’ icons (bottom right of screen), and then
select ‘STOP xxxxxxxx’ where xxxxxxx represents the SD card drive. If all the
data has been transferred then a message will indicate that you can remove the
card, if not then wait a while and try stopping the device again.
Remember that you should not have ‘My Computer’ or ‘Windows
Explorer’ accessing the SD card at this time otherwise the computer will
assume the card is in use and will not allow it to be removed.
Buttons
The default SB LITE setting (No Mode File needed) is messages are noninterruptible, i.e. once started the message cannot be interrupted by another
message button.

To programme the SB LITE to playback audio in different ways you will need to
see the section on ‘Operation with a MODE file’ for further details.

AUDIO PRODUCT MANUAL
Sample Mode File
Looping Playback
This MODE file tells the SB Lite to have a 60 second
delay at start up and that all 6 button messages
are interuptable.
To get the SB to loop you will need to:
1. SD Card should have track 01.wav and a mode file - M1=N.
Track up / Subsequential Playback
2. You need to join the button connections (0V / In) on the 3 way green
connector - you can use a paperclip or piece of wire to join in the screw
terminals as indicated in the picture below.
The SB Lite has the ability to play subsequentially. (ie press the button to play
play track 1, press again to hear track two etc) To do this you will need to move
a jumper link which can be found inside the SB Lite on the PCB.
Firmware version SBLite1.8 onwards:
Internally link pins labelled as 1&2 of the connector labelled LKA.
This is best achieved using the jumper link found linked to one pin already.
Paused Playback
To get the SB to pause you will need the following on your SD card.
SD Card should have track 01.wav and a mode file PD060
M1=I
Firmware version ‘SBLite1.3 -> 1.7’:
Internally link the 2 pins of the connector labelled PL3, closest to
the PL3 label. This is best achieved using the jumper link found
linked to pin 1 already.
For best results in ‘TrackUp’ mode, all the messages should be
configured as Interruptible using the MODE file option.
