Gate ASTER V2 Rear Wired - Basic
ASTER gives you the option to adjust:
FIRE SELECTOR MODES (gen. 2)
Two selector sensors allow you to take advantage of up to 343 fire selector modes variations, depending on the device firmware edition. The following modes are avaialble for selection*:
Safe – it prevents your gun from firing, even if safety lever is removed
Semi – allows you to fire one shot per one trigger pull
Binary – allows for firing one shot on the trigger pull and another shot upon release
Burst – enables you to shoot a pre-determined number of BBs, which is very useful in MILSIMs and when using low-caps. There are 2 Burst modes available:
Burst / Auto – available for Full burst mode only; it allows for extending a burst by any number of shots – if you hold the trigger after the burst is shot, it switches to Auto mode
Auto – shots are fired as long as the trigger is pulled
Semi Ramping – if you pull the trigger very fast, it switches to Auto mode
*You can check fire selector configuration possibilites provided by particular firmware editions here.
Please note: In case of Regional lock, only Semi mode is available. Check the law in your country.
PRE-COCKING (gen. 1.5)
Victory in the game is often a matter of fractions of seconds. Thanks to Pre-cocking, you gain trigger reaction similar to a real gun. It allows for initial spring compression, which significantly speeds up the trigger response. The spring is automatically compressed after each shot.
Manual mode – it allows you to set pre-cocking boost time between 1–250 ms with 1 ms precision and provides automatic voltage drop compensation. Pre-cocking is fully operational regardless of fire selector mode.
Please note: Using Pre-cocking increases wear and tear on the gearbox.
This feature allows for simulating magazines of lower capacity than actually used. Even if you have a high capacity magazine, this function lets you truly increase realism of your game by imitating that your magazine is real-cap. Then, after pre-determined number of BBs is shot, you will have to wait for previously defined amount of time before a next shot can be fired, as if you were really replacing empty magazine with a full one. In case of ADVANCED and EXPERT firmware, you can also set Low ammo warning.
SERIES SAFETY LIMIT
An AEG can continuously fire a predefined number of BBs in a single series. This can be used as protection against trigger jam. Important notice: In case of an emergency, you can always stop firing by switching the fire selector position.
It lets you set delay between shots or series to simulate the delay from reload or recoil. You can set 0.2 s, 0.5 s,1 s,2 s or 3 s delay for ADVANCED firmware and 0.01–5 s for EXPERT firmware.
This enables a reduction in a gun's rate of fire. You use stronger LiPo batteries, and still have a ROF just like in a real gun.
Power – uses PWM to decrease ROF. Thanks to this, gearbox works smoothly, which decreases wear and tear of AEG internal parts.
Delay – adds breaks between shots to decrease ROF. It gives you more realistic experience.
Adaptive – you just need to set your desired rate of fire. Then, power and delay are automatically adjusted to achive this ROF
BASIC firmware: 6 Power settings
ADVANCED firmware: 6 Power and 6 Delay settings
EXPERT firmware: Power: 100–1%, Delay: 5–1000 ms or Adaptive: 1–100 RPS
We know how vital the fast trigger response is during combat. This is why we have developed the Smart Trigger function. It enables you to achieve faster trigger response. It works with the ROF Control System. During the first shot, the microprocessor sets the ROF control to 100%. After the first shot, it switches to a previously programmed value (e.g. 50%). As a consequence, the first shot is fired at a full ROF, and subsequent shots at a reduced ROF. The best results can be achieved when using a battery with voltage higher than standard. For example, if you use a 7.4 V battery, you can replace it with 11.1 V. In this way, you will achieve faster trigger response with the same rate of fire than with a standard battery.
BATTERY PROTECTION (gen. 2)
Protection against over-discharge of the battery. Modern LiPo and LiFe batteries are very sensitive to over-discharge. If you do not want to damage the battery and you care about its service life, this protection is indispensable. The microprocessor monitors the battery voltage constantly. When the voltage drops down to a critical level, it will not allow firing. The number of battery cells can be detected automatically.
LOW BATTERY WARNING
When the battery voltage drops to a predefined level, the motor will vibrate at regular intervals. A user is warned 5 times before the battery is discharged. Each warning is communicated by 3 vibrations: HIGH → MID → HIGH.
ADAPTIVE ACTIVE BRAKE
It automatically adjusts the motor's braking power according to your needs. This prolongs the lifespan of the motor. There is also an option to set the motor braking power manually.
It enables dynamic trigger point, which allows you to shoot even faster.
Off – to fire a next shot, you need to release the trigger until it reaches the selected trigger sensitivity level
• 2LVL – to fire a next shot, it is enough to release the trigger by ~40% of trigger movement
CYCLE DETECTION (gen. 1.5)
Thanks to the gear cam sensor, drop-in unit precisely detects in which position the cycle should finish. Therefore, even the shortest trigger action produces at least one full cycle. The sensor detects the gear cam instead of teeth, so it is possible to use all types of gears: Infinite Torque-up, DSG, SSG, 19-tooth and standard.
Thanks to the cycle detection function you get:
