SunbeamTech Light-Bus & Laser LEDs Review

Modding/Small Mods by SidneyWong @ 2005-02-02

When the loud noise of your water cooling radiator fan rig or high performance heatsink fan bothers you a lot, the fan controller (rheostat) will come to the rescue. When your modded case does not have enough lighting or too much lighting, Sunbeamtech has the Light-Bus for you. In fact, this Light-Bus serves a dual purpose duty in controlling the fans and light intensity plus more.

Sunbeamtech Light Bus:

Sunbeamtech has been busy working on new product launch lately. A few weeks ago we looked at two of their latest gaming cases Transformer and Samurai together with some of their latest CCFL lightings. Today, we are looking into another two new products from Sunbeamtech: Light-Bus and Laser LED.

First the Light-Bus

Despite the busy look panel, there are namely 7 functional buttons:

  1. The four big knobs – tuning the knobs from left to right increases the voltage input.
  2. The smaller knob on the lower right is to adjust the sound input sensitivity.
  3. Alt1 and Alt2 serve as “Mode Change”.
  4. HDD – activate the particular channel to flashing mode according to Hard Drive activity.
  5. Sound button – turn on the particular channel in accepting sound activation.
  6. ST is for fading in/out.
  7. On is for FAN control.

Here is a better picture to get to know them buttons.

    As indicated above, here you find the sound plug, the 4-pin Molex Power input, four sets of device inputs and the HDD 2-pin connector. Notice the four sets of device inputs are equipped with 4-pin, 3-pin and 2-pin connectors. The last one is for CCFL converter. A single sheet of manual printed on one side with hard to read diagram will be the only direction you are getting.
