The download and the software are free, please click above link to download. After executing the installation file, the program references to the NobraControl control software can be found on the desktop and under ‘Start’.
NobraControl 3.0 is the latest release from 23.03.2014 with support for all 32 and 64 bit Windows versions, renewed, ‘bug-free’ Bluetooth connection, as well as revised sound module.
Switch on the digital controller, the change of the LED to green light indicates the operational readiness and the ‘bluetooth-visible mode’. Under Windows10 open the ‘Settings’ and go to the ‘Devices’ section and select ‘Add Bluetooth or other device’. The NobraControl digital controller is recognized, now please click ‘connect’ and enter as pin ‘1-2-3-4’. Now the software NobraControl 3.0 can be called up and there should already be displayed ‘NobraControl’ as a connection.
Just drag the slider from left to right to adjust the speed.
Start / Stop starts and stops the vibration.
In the middle viewing window (here and in all other screenshots of the other modules) the vibration and its change is animated, similar to an oscilloscope. To the right is the bluetooth connected com-port. The selection is done automatically at startup and connected NobraControl digital controller, but can also be done manually. For manual selection, please look up the number of the com-port for the NobraControl in the bluetooth manager and select via dropdown menu.
The sliders change the values for minimum vibration intensity, maximum vibration intensity and the duration until the next change between min and max.
The radio buttons allow advanced settings of the min and max values or the “switching behavior”.
Above the controls and buttons you can see a preview of the vibration behavior.
Start / Stop allows you to play the current pattern.
The Sequence tab allows you to create vibration sequences. These can be saved as a file and loaded or also permanently programmed into the control unit.
A stimulation sequence consists of a sequence of arbitrarily varying vibration intensities, each with an adjustable duration. The diagram shows the course of a sequence with horizontal, alternating black and red bars. The height of a bar in the graph gives the vibrational strength and the length shows the time that this intensity exists in the run of the sequence. By clicking and dragging with the mouse button held down in the fields of the diagram delimited with fine vertical lines, the course of a sequence can be changed as desired. Upwards the vibration strength increases, downwards it diminishes. Right and left lengthen or shorten the time.
Bottom right is a slider that increases or decreases the playback speed of the sequence.
The button ‘Load’ loads a sequence from a file. ‘Save’ saves the current sequence to a file.
Start / Stop allows you to play the current sequence without first saving it to the control unit.
To save in the NobraControl digital controller for later playback without a computer is the middle control panel. There are three different sequences storable and then sequentially available through the key combination 1 +3 of the digital controller. Depending on the selection of buttons 1 to 3, the current sequence is stored in positions 1 to 3 of the internal memory of the digital controller.
The ‘Sound’ tab allows you to control via microphone or any other sound output. The control follows frequency bands, the influence of which is varied by means of graphic display of the sound signal with sliders.
The green horizontal bars as sliders determine the volume of the respective frequency at which the motor is switched on. The red sliders control the volume at which the motor of the vibrator reaches the maximum speed. With this frequency-dependent control, it is possible to filter out specific frequencies from the entire spectrum for control purposes.
By clicking Start the graphic display of the audio signal is started and terminated by clicking on Stop.
The slider ‘Sensitivity’ adjusts the strength of the audio signal.
The maximum vibration slider limits the maximum amount of vibration.
