Description

The SFR-1 is a multifunctional module and combines the sound module USM-RC-2 and the
speed controller UFR-1230 in one unit. It comes with a large light control unit, three servo outputs and an infrared port for the light module SM-IR-16-2, to transmit light signals to a trailer.

The SFR-1 is suitable for all types of RC standard transmitter. With the various setting options the SFR-1 can be easily adjusted to all model requirements and driving behaviours. For an easy start we have more than 140 ready to use sound projects and 700 sound files for various model types. Of course, own recordings can be used, as well.

Sound functions:
For an authentic sound of the model, sounds can be selected for following areas:
  • Driving and engine sounds for one motor (speed-dependent)
  • Additional sounds (e.g. horns, hydraulic and compressed air noises)
  • Random sounds (e.g. squeaking, animal and ambient sounds)
Driving functions:
One brushed and bell-armature motors (DC) can be controlled smooth and realistic with the SFR-1. An ideal driving behavior can be achieved through a large number of settings.

The speed controller on the SFR-1 has following characteristics:
  • Cruise control functions
  • Different brake functions (with hand- and emergency brake)
  • Adjustable load regulation
  • Adjustable mass inertia
  • Steering inertia (with adjustable steering ankle limits)
  • Adjustment of throttle curve for different driving behaviors
Light functions:
To realize different light effects, the SFR-1 has 16 switching outputs to connect LEDs, lamps, smoke generators and other consumers. Light functions, such as low beam, rear light, brake light, indicator lights, warning lights, flickering lights, etc. can be easily implemented and controlled.

All light functions can be activated or deactivated manually with a proportional channel or with nautic/multiswitche modules and automatically by sounds and movements.

The SFR-1 has a special infrared port to connect the IR transmitter diode for the light module SM-IR-16-2.

Servo movements:
With two additional servo outputs, movements can be synchronised to the played sound



Additional information can be found in the SFR-1 operating manual (PDF).

If you do not have all sound examples on your DVD (because we are always creating new ones) you can download our latest sounds with your Sound-Teacher (Menu File -> Download sounds from the internet)

Prices (incl. 19 % VAT)

Caution: To edit sound projects and to change settings on your sound speed controller, you need the DVD with the "SFR-1 Sound-Teacher"!
Only order your sound module without DVD when you already have the SFR-1 DVD with the matching Sound-Teacher.
The Sound-Teacher of other modules (e.g. USM-RC-2, USM-HL-2) is not working with the SFR-1.

Customer reviews for this product

12.09.2020
Thorsten aus Bottrop:

Bislang hatte ich Fahrtregler, Soundmodul und IR-Sender/Empfänger eines Mitbewerbers verbaut und nun den SFR-1, ich bin einfach nur begeistert. Die vielen Möglichkeiten, die der SFR-1 IN EINEM MODUL bietet, sind meiner Meinung unschlagbar. Vielfältige Einstellmöglichkeiten, Soundmodul an Bord mit vielen Sound-Möglichkeiten für die unterschiedlichsten Modelle und das zu einem unschlagbaren Preis. Einfach klasse, werde meine anderen Modelle auch auf Beier-Electronic umstellen.

Ralph aus Nordhorn:

Habe mein SFR-1 jetzt seit gut einem Jahr im Einsatz und freue mich immer noch an den unglaublichen Möglichkeiten die es bietet. Verbesserungen und Neuigkeiten werden spitzenmäßig durch Updates geliefert. Spitzenklasse!
15.04.2020
Carsten aus Fuldatal:

Habe den Regler in mein neues Modell,Truppentransporter M577 APC aus den Film Alien 2(YouTube der Panzerschmied M577 APC) eingebaut. Wieder mal erste Wahl. Für meine Panzerschmied Modelle nur das Feinste. Und das sind mit Abstand die Produkte von Beier.

Markus aus Wetzlar:

Das absolute Non plus ultra für den heutigen Funktionsmodellbau.
Dank des SFR1 konnte ich mir den Ardruino in meinen Modell sparen und konnte sogar noch mehr Wünsche verwirklichen.
Für Profis lässt sich so ziemlich alles einstellen, und für Anfänger gibt es eine Ordentliche Dokumentation und sogar ein Forum wenns mal wirklich irgendwo hängt.
Was besseres konnte ich nach langer Suche für mich nicht finden.

einfach nur geil die sachen andere worte habe ich nicht
super produkt jeden cent wert

Kurt aus Wien:

Hallo allseits,Ich habe mir den SFR-1 Neu zugelegt für meinen Thicon Truck da ich wenn Sound und Fahrregler in einem sind mehr Platz habe noch für andere Bauteile.Der erste Fahrregler UFR-1230 hat mich überzeugt wie gut die BEIER Technik ist da man alles selber einstellen kann.Dazu kam das USM-RC-2 dass ich leider über einen Händler kaufte und die Micro Steckkarte bereits kaputt war sodas ich den Sound gar nicht testen konnte bis jetzt.
Und direkt bei BEIER zu sein hat den Vorteil das wem einer hilft,wobei Händler nachhinken oder nur Geschäfte machen wollen.

Guido aus Ratingen:

Hallo. Ich habe mir den SFR-1 gekauft weil ich kleine modelle baue
und mit dem SFR-1 nur ein anschluß brauche. im gegensatz zum USM
-RC 2 wo ich noch einen fahrregler brauche. Beide Teile finde ich
super. Übrigens finde ich den service von beier super was auch für bestellungen gilt.
