Wireless RetroFit Kit for JFS
Coming soon, this kit enables you to operate your JFS mats wirelessly. Up to four mats can be linked to the one receiver box with a range up to 10 metres. The receiver box is powered by the Wii, the transmitters by rechargeable batteries. Each transmitter and receiver pairing is numbered and operates on its own channel so that there is no interference.
The RetroFit Kit has been assembled from individual, tried and tested components. The testing undertaken by fitnessgaming has been to determine compatibility of mats and components. That compatibility has been proved by simultaneously running 4 different types of Cobalt Flux mat , with a Wii and DDR Hottest Party 2. The first field test has been successfully undertaken at Settle College PE Department using a Cobalt Flux Just for Schools 4 package. A second field test will take place in January 2010 with availability for deliveries in February 2010.
The kit is very easy to fit:
- Roll up the JFS controller cables until less than a foot long, and tie up with a cable tie.
- replace the mat to controller cables with a short connector
- Connect the cables into the wireless transmitters.
- Plug the receiver box connections into the Wii.
- Switch on the transmitters on the mats.
- Get dancing
