Proteus Upgrade Board

The Protues Upgrade Board converts a BFS Classic system into a highly advanced FragTag system. This board offers all of the standard features of the FragTag Mainboard, with the exception that it drives the standard BFS LED display, instead of the LCD display.

This product is required to be installed into a BFS mainboard in order to function.



Key Features and Benefits

  • Works with either the existing BFS sensor, or with a FragTag Head Sensor. Important note: BFS "Supa Sensors" are not compatible with modern digital protocol systems, and Proteus equipped with a Supa Sensor will not function correctly with our Utility Boxes or Odin. We do not recommend using Proteus with a Supa Sensor.
