The most frequently asked question is how a Lumina system is installed. The diagram above gives an overview:
A Response Pads: These are built of 100% plastic and fiber optics. They are totally inert and safe.
B OTEC Unit: Converts electricity to light and is connected to the pads via protected fiber optic cables.
C Shielded Cable: Connects the OTEC unit to the penetration panel. Uses wires and connectors of the highest quality.
D RF Filter: Optionally installed if the penetration panel does not have a built-in filter.
E Shielded Cable: Connects the penetration panel to the controller.
F Controller: Detects key presses, times them, performs TTL I/O, and connects to the host computer. See Controller Features for all the features built into this versatile device.
G Serial Cable: Connects the controller to the host computer.
There are two other optional connections not shown on the diagram:
Scanner Trigger Input: The Lumina controller can detect the scanner triggers and pass them through to the serial port.
Accessory Connector: Provides a highly configurable TTL input/output link.
