Description

The sound module USM-RC-2 is the successor of our popular USM-RC sound and light module with improved and extended functions and applications. Both modules have been developed especially for RC model construction in order to equip models for land, air and sea with realistic and speed-dependent driving and engine sounds.

Due to the plenty adjustment and setting possibilities of the sound module USM-RC-2, each model can be individually and uniquely designed according to one's own ideas.

All setings are programmed with the software Sound-Teacher and saved on a micro SD card. The programm is for Windows,with a amulator like WineBottler is is also possible to use the Sound-Teacher with a Mac or other operating systems.

Sound functions:
Driving noises sound very authentic due to detailed starting, stopping, idling, accelerating, running, braking and reversing sounds. To make model and surrounding noises perfect up to 30 additional sounds and 8 random sounds can be played next to engine sounds.

For an easy start we have more than 170 ready to use sound projects for various types of models. With the software "USM-RC-2 Sound-Teacher" (for Windows) you can create your own sound projects with individual sound, light and servo functions. On our DVD-ROM more than 700 different sound files are available for a variety of applications.

In addition you can edit your own sounds for your individual application with the included software "Audacity". With our software "USM-RC-2 Sound-Teacher" (for Windows) you can compile different sound and light functions.

The USM-RC-2 can play up to 4 sounds simultaneously. This means, additional to normal engine or driving sounds, up to three additional or random sounds can be played at the same time. All sounds have a quality of 44,1kHz and 16 bit.

The USM-RC-2 contains a powerful double amplifier (2x20W), therefore no additional amplifier is required, you only need to connect one or two loudspeakers for an optimal volume. We recommend the loudspeaker LS-4R-25W-90.

Due to a high number of running steps (internally up to 255) the speed-dependent driving and engine sound transitions are played smoothly without any steps or interruptions.

In order to adjust engine sounds to the corresponding driving speed, the pace (voltage) is measured either at the cruise control/drive motors (analogue and mix mode) or at the proportional channels of the receiver (digital mode).

In digital/mix mode you can easily connect the sound module with up to 4 servo patch cables to all commercially available RC-receiver.

With one-channel multi-function selection (EKMFA mode) it is possible to control up to 16 functions of the sound module with only one single proportional channel. This is very useful when you have only one proportional channel left.

The nautic mode is a further option to trigger functions of the USM-RC-2. For this mode the transmitter requires a suitable multiswitch (e.g. BEIER-Electronic Nautic-Multiswitch NMS-16-R, NMS-16-G, NMS-24-G, Graupner Nautic-Expert Modul Nr. 4108, Robbe Multi-Switch 16 Modul Nr. 8084).

Light functions:
The USM-RC-2 contains 12 switching outputs for connecting LEDs, lamps and relays. Different light effects (e.g. brake lights, indicators, hazard warning lights, machine-gun fire or flickering-lights) can be implemented at these outputs.

The switching outputs can be divided into 2 output groups. For these 2 groups you can define output sequences for example with moving lights, rotating lights or beacon lights for airplanes.

Movement functions:
For movements the USM-RC-2 offers 2 servo outputs, which can be used for various motion application combined with the matching sound.

Extra: Connection of a smoke generator:
With the sound module USM-RC-2 or the extension module EXM-2 a proportional smoke generator can be controlled speed dependend.

Depending on the driving situation the smoke generator is controlled in a different intensity and more or less smoke is produced. Additional setting options, such as smoke volume at start, while standing or at full speed the smoke can be adjusted in the Sound-Teacher.

The smoke generator is connected to the switching outputs X3 of the sound module. Heater and fan can be connected and controlled together and separately. The current consumption of the smoke generator must nor exceed 1,5 A at one sound module output and not 3 A in total (all switching outputs together).

A smoke generator with a current consumption of 8 A can be connected to the motor output of the extension module EXM-2.

Stefan aus Beverungen :

Die Soundmodule von Beier sind einfach genial - ich kaufe sie immer wieder für meine Rc Panzer - sehr zu empfehlen.
22.08.2018
Christian aus Leipzig:

Ein mega Teil das Teil ^^

Haben schon sage und schreibe 17 Stück davon in unsere Modelle verbaut und werden auch zukünftig bei den Beier Produkten bleiben. Da man alles frei programmieren kann und auch mehrere Servos ansteuern bleiben keine Modellbauwünsche mehr offen.
Sehr zu empfehlen !!!

Hans-Rudolf aus Ihlow:

Guten Tag
Den Fahrtregler und das Soundmodul habe ich für meinen US-Truck gekauft und eingebaut. Dass von Beier auch noch ein Zusatzmodul für den Sender Carson Reflex Stick Multi Pro LCD angeboten wird, um die Nautic-Schalter zu betreiben, ist einfach Spitze! Die Komponenten sind super und die Anleitung verständlich geschrieben. Für RC-Steuerungen kann ich diese Produkte nur empfehlen!
Freundliche Grüsse aus Ihlow

Andreas aus Wabeck:

Hey,
danke für das tolle Soundmodul USM-RC-2.
Macht echt spass und läst keine Wünsche offen :)

19.01.2018
Bernd aus Kempten:

Hallo,
ich hatte zuerst Bedenken, dass ich als DAU (dümmster anzunehmender User)es nicht schaffe das Soundmodul zu konfigurieren. Aber bis jetzt hat alles super geklappt. Bin echt begeistert und werde das Soundmodul für künftige Schiffsmodelle wieder kaufen. Bei mir kommt es in der Happy Hunter zur Anwendung. Und durch die vielen verschiedenen Möglichkeiten die das Modul bietet, habe ich für andere Sonderfunktionen genügend Steckplätze frei.TOP!!! Und die Lieferung war super schnell...Danke
Grüße aus Kempten

Lutz aus Forst:

Mein 5. USM-RC-2 - und immer wieder die Freude über das Produkt mit all seinen Möglichkeiten. Der familiäre Support ist ebenfalls klasse. Auch auf Grund der Tutorials hab ich mich zum Modul entschlossen. Macht weiter so.
Beste Grüße aus der Lausitz

Gunnar aus Berlin:

Hallo,
heute ist das USM-RC2 angekommen, alles gut verpackt und macht einen echt ordentlichen Eindruck. Mal schnell Software installiert und aufgrund der Videos, die ich mir letzten Samstag mal angesehen habe (wegen denen ich mich letztendlich zum Kauf entschieden habe), liess sich sehr schnell ein kleiner Test Programmieren. Das USM wird an einer Gr. 4014 mit org. Nautic-Modul 4108 und Jeti-Umbau genutzt. Da hatte ich mit dem alten empfängerseitigem Nautic-Modul einige Probleme auf SW 1,2,3,16 oben. da blinkte die Test-LED nur. unten Steady on. hier mit Sounds.... ALLET JUT, SUPER TEIL!!!!

Dieter aus Stolberg RHL.:

Tag zusammen mein Name Dieter Aelmans,
Frage, warum sind die Dateien nicht in der richtigen
samper-rate Abgelegt. warum die kovertierei. ?
Das Sounmodul ist Toll.
Dieter Aelmans.

Kommentar von BEIER-Electronic:
Wo genau ist denn welche Datei in einer falschen Samplerate hinterlegt?
19.06.2017
Hartmut aus Essen:

Ich finde es schon umverschämt dass für PayPal Gebühren erhoben werden!
Und dann auch noch Versand kosten insgesamt 11.00 €
Ich werde mir überlegen ob ich noch Beier Kunde bleibe da es auch andere Anbieter gibt.
PS.Versand kosten kann ich noch verstehen

Kommentar von BEIER-Electronic:
PayPal verlangt für JEDE Zahlung IMMER eine Gebühr! Wir geben diese Gebühr einfach nur weiter (andere schlagen die Gebühr halt schon vorher auf den Kaufpreis drauf). Jeder, der ein Bankkonto besitzt, kann auch per kostenloser Überweisung bei uns bezahlen.

Hans aus Meerhout:

Today I received my Soundmodul USM-RC-2.
Now that's service. all neatly packaged and more than a thorough guide. I've already bought some sound module from other brands in the past. but this is really first class. Thank you Evelyn Beier and two thumbs up :0)
