Gauntlet Wiring Tutorial



If you guys have any questions do not hesitate to call.




I wouldn't mind a copy, if anyone still has them floating around after a year.



Thanks for the offering!! We don't need to lay down on a temple slab or anything, do we? My electronics skills are still a bit more speculative than spectacular right now. I promise not to detonate any devices without Elder supervision!! :eek:P

neonstorm7, check your inbox, perkleations you have mail.




Be careful where you by the chips from. I got a bad lot. They worked fine for a while than quit.

Mark I have not forgotten you. I have been real busy at work. We just got a Million and a Half contract. I am responsible for a 250000 project right now. Taking up all my time.

If I can help with questions guys pm me and I will try or post your questions here.



Could I please get a copy of the diagram also? I will be working with it shortly and would like to have the info and parts ready. Thank you in advance. Tom


If someone still has this would you please send me a copy. I would greatly appreciate it. Tom

For everyone who is intertested here is the Gauntlet wiring info reposted.

On the 4011, short together pins 1and 2 and 5 and 6.
Wire pins 3 and 5 together.
The output speed of this timer depends on the value of the capacitor and
The Capaciitor has two leads. Solder one to pin 2, the other to pin 4.
The Resistor has two leads also. Solder one to pin 1 and the other to pin 3.
Pin 7 is your ground.
Pin 14 is positive.
Now you have a Timer.
The output to the 4017 is pin 4.

Items needed:
CMOS Chips - 4011, 4017, 3082
Rectangular LED's
Soldering Gun

Targeting Screen X

Using 4011 chips, wire as before (for x pattern).
Send output from pin 4 of 4011 to 4017.
The difference is that pin 15 (reset) on 4017 is not set to jump to pin 13, it
is wired to pin 4.

Take the output of 4011 and wire it to pin 14 on 4017.
This time take pin 15 (reset) instead of jumpering it to pin 13,
wire it to pin 4 of the 4017.
This causes the chip to count to two and reset. This gives the look of a back
and forth sequence nonstop. Wire pin 3 of the 4017 to pin 16 of 3082.
Wire pin 2 of the 4017 to pin 3 of 3082. Also wire pin 15 of 3082 to positive.
Take pin 1 of 3082 and wire to LED.
Take pin 2 of 3082 and wire to other LED.When power is applied the LEDS will go
back and forth.

Camouflage and Energy System Display

Using the same 4011 take pins 8 and 9 and short them. Do the same for pins 12
and 13. Capacitor will determine speed of clock.
Take one lead of Capacitor and wire to pin 9 and the other lead to pin11.
Resistor is as follows. Wire one lead to pin 8 the other
lead to pin 10. Short pins 12 to 13. Also short pins 10 to 12. Use pin 11 as
output to 3082.

Now take output from pin 11 and wire to pin 14 of another 4017. Wire this 4017
as you did the other except take pin 15 (reset) and wire to pin
Take pin 3 of 4017 and wire to pin 13 of 3082.
Take pin 2 of the 4017 and wire to pin 11 of 3082.
Take pin 4 of the 4017 and wire to pin 6 of the 3082.
Take pin 7 of the 4017 and wire to pin 8 of the 3082.
Take pin 10 of the 4017 and wire to pin 10 of the 3082.
Now for the outputs from the 3082 to the LEDS.
Take pin 14 of the 3082 and wire to Blue LED.
Take pin 12 of the 3082 and wire to Blue LED. Take pin 4 of the 3082 and wire to
Blue LED. Take pin 7 of the 3082 and wire to Blue LED. Take pin 9 of the 3082
and wire to final Blue LED.
The effect you will have or Pattern depends on how you arrange the LEDS.

Yautja Letters

Wire up (2) 4011s the same as above. Use the 4 outputs from these to (4) 4017s .
The number of 3082s you use depends on how many
LEDS you have for each sections pattern. Remember each 3082 will have 7 outputs.
Use micro or mini single pole throw switches.

Single Shot

A pulse produced by a 555 timer chip. Time on controlled by the length
of the pulse. Can be activated by a micro switch, touch plate or pad.
You'll need:
(1) 555 timer chip
(2) 1 meg ohm potentiometers
(1) 100 microfared capacitor ( 25 volt will do)
(1) .01microfared capacitor (Ceramic Disc)

555 has 8 pins.
The 100 microfared will be an Electrolytic and the .01 will be a ceramic disc.
Pin 1 of 555 goes to ground.
Pin 8 and 4 are connected to each other. They connect to (pos).
You need to short on the 1 meg ohm potentiometer the following.
Wire the wiper, usually the center pin, to an outside pin.(either one).
Now you have a reostat.
Wire one pin to 6, the other is positive
Wire pin 6 to 7.
Wire (pos) side of the microfared capacitor to pin 7.
The other pin (neg) wire to the ground.
Take the .01 microfared capacitor and wire one side to pin 5.
The other side is ground.
Pin 2 is the trigger.
Take the other 1 meg potentiometer.
Wire center pin to pin 2.
Take a remaining pin and wire it to (+), the other is (neg).
You can use either a Touch Pad,Touch plate or Single Pole Single Throw
Take one pin of the switch and put it to pin 2. The other is ground.
When the switch is pushed you'll have a high pulse at pin 3.
This lasts as long as the the value is set.
At full right it should be about 90 seconds.
This controls the countdown timer to turn off in sections.
This will power the first sequence circuit.
Pin 3 would be the (+) to 4011,4017, 3082.

Yellow Breathing Light

Located near the target light, it slowly increases and decreases flash rate.
You'll need :
(1) 1458 op amp chip
(4) 47K resistors (1/4 watt is fine)
(1) 22 Microfared Capacitor
(1) 100 K resistor
(1) 100 ohm resistor
(1) 2n 3904 NPN Transistor

Take one side of one 47K and wire to pin 3.
Take another 47K ,wire one side to pin 3.
Wire pin 3 to pin 6.
These make a small voltage divider.
The other side of the two 47K resistors are as follows:
One side to (+), The other to (neg).
Take the 22 microfared capacitor,
Wire one side to pin 2., the other to pin1.
Now take pin 1 and wire one end of a 47K resistor to it.
The other side to pin 5.
Wire pin 4 to ground.
Take the 100 K resistor, wire one side to pin 4.
The other side to pin 5.
Take the 100K and wire one side to pin 5, the other side to pin 7.
Take a 47K resistor, wire one side to pin 2 the other to pin 7.
Wire pin 8 to (+)
Wire pin 1 to base of transistor.
The collector wire to (+).
The emitter wire to LED's.

When you get your Transistor it will define the Base Emmitter and Collector out.
When power is applied the circuit will cause the LED's to slowly come on and go
Take pin 3 of 555 you wired before and use it as the (+) on this circuit.
You'll use the 555 one shot as (+) for all circuits or you can insert switches
between circuits to turn each section on independently.
