Target Shooting Timer Controller to Replace Jackcast

Original JackCast shooting timer controllerPictured above is an old Jackcast shooting target timer controller which needed replacing. This timer could be set to repeat sequences 1-8 times or forever, the target edge times to 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 15, or 30 seconds, and the target face times to 1, 2, 3,4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 15, 20, and 150 seconds. Buttons are provided to manually face or edge the target, and there are start and stop buttons to run and stop the timer.

Pictured below is the Arduino-based replacement controller board we built to replicate the features of the original unit.Display for target shooting timer controllerThis will be fitted into an enclosure with panel mounted buttons, and the display as shown below mounted to show system settings and the timer status.shooting-target-controller-display

Wireless operation has been added in parallel to the hard wired output from the relay on our controller. The right hand board above provides this functionality.
