18R2 Scripted Remote

Looking to graduate beyond manual firing? The 18R2 boasts all the same features as the COBRA 18R plus a handful of added features including:

  • Firing memory - The remote tells you what has fired and not fired on every channel. Unfired cues display as green, fired cues are red, and blinking red indicates the last cue fired.
     
  • Rapid manual fire - Fire cues as fast as your fingers can press including multiple at the same time!
     
  • Scripted firing - The USB plug adds support for automated shows. Simply press a button and sit back to watch your show fire automatically. Design automated shows using Microsoft Excel, COBRA Show Creator, or Finale Fireworks. Shows can be simple backyard shows, or world class award wining pyromusicals!
     
  • Audio box integrataion - Play your audio in perfect sync with the COBRA Audio Box, a stand-alone wireless audio player you can connect directly into a sound system.
     
  • Really easy to use - While the 18R2 has more features, none of the advanced features get in the way of basic operation. You can learn the unit in minutes, and take advantage of our world class support.

For professional use, the 18R2 creates new opportunities for small to mid-sized display companies by allowing them to easily, reliabily, and affordably shoot pyromusicals with minimal operator training compared to any other system in the market. The 18R2 is our most popular remote with thousands of units in the field being used daily by individuals and professionals worldwide.

Different from other wireless firing systems, the 18R2 has no limit on how fast you can manually fire cues. This is accomplished by an innovating grid-firing technique where COBRA transmits multiple layers of firing commands that overlap onto each other. This ensures that in the rare event a wireless command is not received, the redundant layers act as backup to ensure every cue is fired as expected.

In addition, you don't need to wait for visual fire confirmation since the COBRA 18M will always provide enough current to fire the cue regardless of how long you hold the button on the hand-held remote.
The 18R2 has a 4MB internal flash chip for storing script, continuity and firing history. This allows the remote to tell you good, bad and expected continuity based on uploaded scripts. In addition, when firing your show the remote tells you which cues have been fired and which cues remain to be fired in real-time.
The 18R2 allows you to fire multiple cues at the same time by simply pressing multiple buttons on the hand-held remote. For example, press cues 1 and 2 at the same time.

In addition, using the USB port for script uploads, you can fire unlimited cues / channels at the same time. For example, if you have 6 positions, where each position has an 18M on a different channel, you can fire each module independantly or at the same time.
The 18R2 assigns unique address (A01, A02, A03...) to each COBRA 18M when sycned. This unique address is used to test continuity and signal strength across modules set to the same channel directly from the 18R2.

Module addresses are also used to communicate module-specific alerts back to the 18R2. Exmaple alerts include low-battery and key in the TEST vs. ARM position
The 18R2 is outfitted with a USB port for the uploading of up to 100 pre-defined scripts. You can create scripts in seconds using using Microsoft Excel, or you can create powerful pyromusicals using our integration with Finale Fireworks Pro.

Scripts can include everything from mulitple mini-scripts (e.g. quick chases) to complete 15, 30+ minute pyromusicals. You can also create "step scripts" which require the user to manually press the STEP button to jump to the next event.

Microsoft Excel

The following script format is easily created using Microsoft Excel. You can define one or more scripts in a single file to be executed at any time by any number of trigger channel and trigger button combinations. Using the return channel parameter, you can easily return to a single channel used for starting your scripts for efficient semi-auto firing. You can also watch the online video tutorial to learn how easy it is. You can download the script template to begin creating scripts today.

COBRA Show Creator
Available on PC only, COBRA Show Creator is our own scripting software. You can easily script simple shows, or load a music file to fire events at defined points in music. Learn more



The 18R2 is also integrated to Finale Fireworks Pro, a drag-and-drop visual choreography software for designing firework shows. With Finale, you can watch your show before fired. It also allows for easy integration and timing of music into your show.
The 18R2 offers the unique ability to manually fire cues while an automatic script is running. For example, while executing a pyromusical you may want a handful of manual reserve shots to fill any unanticipated black sky. Using the 18R2, you can manually fire any cues whether defined in the scipt or not, at any time during the show without disrupting the current firing script.
