About

What is a QLite controller?

The QLite is a customizable case with inputs and options that allows it to be configured in several ways. It allows you to build a controller that fits your project needs. As a project grows and changes so can your controller.

The QLite allows you to install your choice of MCU/development boards into the controller. This also allows the choice to make it tethered, Wifi, Bluetooth, XBee, or some of the many other wireless options available.

It does come with board mounting patterns for Arduino UNO, Arduino Mega, and Parallax like products. But, since it’s made from acrylic it’s easy to add any board mounting pattern by simply drilling the holes needed with a Dremel/Drill.

Max board space/dimensions are 3” X 4” (7.7 X 10.2 cm)

Production

This project will be completely machined and kitted in Illinios in our shop.  We are sourcing the PCB for the joystick modules.  We are using our previous manufacture in making the the blank PCB's.  They are reliable and have a quick turn around.  

Our rewards have a slight buffer.  A cushion of a month is added.  Just a precaution to resolve a issue if need be with out offsetting reward ship times. 

Risks and challenges

After learning a lot from our first campaign. A larger than needed time cushion is added to fulfillment of rewards. A supplier list with preferred suppliers, secondary, and in some cases a third choice so that materials are available when needed.

Each kit is made in our shop. So a inventory of potential parts that might fail on our equipment was created and those parts are on hand. These range from spare router motors, bearings, belts, wire assemblies, and homing sensors just to name a few.
