Syndyne developed a cost effective version of the MS8400 system for smaller consoles. This gives the impressive features of large instruments at a price that is attainable for smaller installations. The capacities are the same except for the following:
The MS8400 system uses a customized version of the incredibly robust and reliable CAN Buss Protocol to communicate data between the system components. CAN was originally developed for harsh environments where data integrity is critical, such as keeping airplanes in the sky and automobiles safely on the road.
Communications for the MS8400 system can be transmitted using standard off the shelf CAT5 Ethernet cable. CAT5 cable is daisy chained to each board in the system. Fiber optic options are also available for installations where there are long cable runs or when extra lightning protection is desired.
When designing the MS8400, we wanted to provide a mounting solution that looked attractive, maintained a low profile, was strong and rigid, all while staying extremely customizable. Our chassis solution took a long time to engineer, but the end result was well worth it. The MS8400 offers two chassis sizes, one for the console, and one for the chamber. Thumb screws hold the system cards securely, but allow for quick and easy removal. A matching steel cover is attached on the top and bottom of the chassis, and in-between every four chassis segments for increased rigidity. Attractive and convenient power blocks can be mounted directly to the chassis cover for easy power distribution.
The MS8400 empowers the builder with the ability to easily change the way the organ plays, right from the front of the console, in just a few steps, and without the use of a computer. The MS8405 touch screen controller sports an intuitive interface that helps guide and direct the builder throughout the setup process. Here is an example of how the system is configured:
