The Digital Delay Elite 700 Delay Box introduces Control Panels and Smart Select Technology, making it the most advanced Delay Box ever made. With a graphical LCD display all information is in plain English, no abbreviations or mode numbers to remember.
The four Control Panels are used by the driver to select what the seven programmable outputs and the four programmable push-button inputs are going to do. Both Bracket and Pro Mode each have three separate outputs that can be programmed to control different devices. The S.L.E. has its own output which can be programed to work in either or both Pro and Bracket mode(s). Smart Select uses the Control Panel settings to automatically decide which screens are needed for both Bracket and Pro Modes. By showing only the screens that are needed, Smart Select simplifies the use of the Elite 700 and reduces the time needed to make changes to numbers.
The Elite 700 is also the first Delay Box to have an external Relay Board. Another first, the Relay Board has a fuse for each output. There is also a fused, constant 12Volt output that can be used to power other devices up to 20 Amps. There are also status LEDs for each fuse, output, and input. By mounting the Relay Board away from the Elite 700 in an easily accessible place, the wiring is greatly simplified. No longer do all the wires from the Push-buttons, Transbrake, Throttle Stops, Shifter, Nitrous, etc. have to be crammed in the dash. With the Elite 700 the Relay Board could be mounted on a knee plate in a dragster or the firewall on a door car.
The Elite 700 also incorporates many other new features. The new Solenoid Saver keeps solenoids from being burnt-up by a locked-on button. The new Sleep Mode saves battery charge by turning off all the outputs when the box is not being used. The new Multi-Tap feature (first seen in the Elite 500) allows large amounts to be tapped down, while the standard Tap feature now has the ability to Tap Up and Down on the same pass.
Along with new features, several standard features have been expanded. The Driver's Reaction Tester has been upgraded and now features a full tree in Bracket Mode and a pro tree in Pro Mode.
