Assembly and Operating Instructions for HiViz.com Kits

 

Parts for the Multi-Trigger Kit (MT-BB, v11)

 

Assembly instructions for other kits

 

Parts Guide (MT-BB, v11)

 

Below is a list of the parts provided with the Multi-Trigger Breadboard Kit, v11. (Note that this is a newer version than v10. The v11 was released at the beginning of October, 2018.)

 

Click on the photos for larger images.

 

The parts are divided into four groups corresponding to the sound trigger, photogate, and delay unit modules in addition to the parts needed for all modules.

 

Sound trigger parts

Photogate parts

Delay unit parts

 

We may occasionally make changes to the parts list without notice in order to improve the product.
