Spliced power wires
Second RJ11 terminal wired for raw power and ready signal from controller
Closed up enclosure
Enclosure with a single receiver attached
The taggers were going to be retrofitted onto airsoft rifles by mounting to Weaver (aka Picatinny aka MIL-STD-1913) rails. An old idea was to build the guns from scratch with a tape dispenser handle, PVC body, and a spring loaded paddle switch as the trigger. This idea was abandoned due to complications with building a usable model. While searching for an enclosure an electrical box was found which could house the electronics, support a PVC emitter tube and accept keystone components.
Old tape dispenser design. Not good
New tape dispenser with easy to attach handle
Location of switch and handle
Locations and sizes of holes for mounting components
Schematics were sketched for the vest and tagger. A diagram for making an emitter tube was also sketched. The emitter tube diagram is for attaching an emitter tube directly to a PVC enclosure without the need for rail mounts.
