Master Controller

The Master Controller is your portable control device that allows the Operator efficient and comprehensive control of the game. As part, the SATR system you can boot up an unit that can be configured to act like any other. So you can boot up a gaming gun to act as a Controller. But it is best to have a dedicated unit. All units operate peer to peer utilizing the key patented feature of the SATR system.  A master controller has numerous features for setting, monitoring and controlling the game and other devices. The most commonly used feature is the game start by radio along with a game timer so that each game runs for a specified period before automatically ending. The Controller is designed to boost your through-put.

The Master Controller comes with a handy strap. Optional: Upgrade to the whip antenna. With this controller, the Battlefield Operator can start a game, pause, stop all players. It can set a game-time duration and much, much more!

    Controller Functions in Detail

    While small operations usually only have the one Master Controller, larger businesses can benefit from ordering several Controller units. Then there are two or more Controllers working together one will act as the lead controller and the rest act as slave controllers. For example, one Controller will time the games and the rest will follow from that time-count.

    That way the Controller unit won't issue cross orders. In SATR3 the Master Controller has four boot-up options for the controller, namely:
    • Comprehensive Master Controller
    • Simple Master Controller
    • Workshop Master Controller
    • Themed Master Controller.

    Comprehensive Master Controller

    A master controller controls the games and is normally used by operators/instructors. It has numerous functions to monitor and control devices by radio and infrared communications. The most commonly used functions are to
    * Start a timed game by radio
    * Set a gaming gun or other device to a particular team, and
    * Reset gaming guns back to a default configuration for a theme.

    It can also issue pre-recorded phrases on gaming guns in player mode. The master controller can monitor and provide limited remote control of devices on the same battle as the controller.

    Simple Master Controller

    If you want simplified operations then go for the Simple Master Controller. It is a much simpler version of the master controller without many of the unusual or complex commands suitable for running simple “Laser Tag” events. Commands include:
    •     Respawn (or Reactivate)
    •     Set Game Timer
    •     End (RF)
    •     Start (RF)
    •     Find (RF)
    •     Team A (set the target devices to Team A)
    •     Team B (set the target devices to Team B)
    •     Any Team (sets to Team X, effectively no team)  
    •     Reload (IR)
    •     Briefing (RF)
    •     Set Volume
    Workshop Master Controller

    A Workshop Controller is designed for the depot staff, especially for a rental business.  Commands include Reset, Set Spare, Test RF, Spawn, Shoot, Kill, Unlock, and Lock.

    Themed Master Controller

    This is a master controller but has extra commands for controlling games using the game modes of Manhunt, Haunted and Apocalypse.
