Reg Posted March 17, 2007 Report Share Posted March 17, 2007 Hi All, I just received information from Dave Emery regarding the Pulse Devil which I need to share with you. So, I am sharing the specifics with you now.The Pulse Devil which Dave has been using for his initial tests in North Carolina is made with regular PC boards and without regard to any kind of security from reverse engineering. Such was not required for a test detector. For production detectors, Dave has his own proprietary method to protect his trade secret circuitry. He pots critical circuitry in small modules which are about the size of an airmail stamp. The components inside are not soldered but are connected via a conductive chemical wiring method. Any attempt to open these modules with solvents simply dissolves the chemical wiring leaving just the unconnected parts as well as a bunch of parts placed inside as dummies which were never wired to anything in the first place. I understand that he also has a patent in the works to protect his method/s. Well, Dave sent computer files for the final design via the Internet on Friday morning to have the small boards made which go inside the modules. The boards were due to arrive on Tuesday which would allow plenty of time to make the modules before leaving for Arizona. Disaster struck when Dave got a call from the board manufacturer telling him that the files they had received were corrupt. Dave is still looking into what went wrong. The delay will likely mean that Dave will not have a secure Pulse Devil ready for next Saturday's push. He absolutely refuses to risk taking a non-secure detector on the road. He has far too much invested in the Pulse Devil to risk it being stolen. So, it looks like the Australians are going to get the first go with the Pulse Devil after all. Dave is planning on going to Australia himself as part of the testing team. With luck, Dave will make a later push in Arizona. Dave tells me that he is also working to provide a series of demonstrations this year. I have sent the dates of the last two pushes on the 24K club claims to Dave for review. If actual final working models are available, then arrangements will be made to try to make one of the remaining dates. Otherwise, major open testing in the west will be most likely done by his western distributor.As for me, I have been assured that I will receive a Pulse Devil to test. Once I have it in my hands I will inform people of what I find and will try my best to make another trip to AZ so others can see it.Once again, I am sorry about the delay.Reg Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
