How WPS Channels and banks work

Bank – every 12 cues are grouped together and represent one “Bank”. Each Bank is identified by a capital letter A-L. WPS hobby has 2 Banks, WPS pro has 12 Banks, WPS tiny has 1 Bank.

WPS hobby banks are represented with either filled circle (Upper bank) or an empty circle (Left bank). You can set which physical bank location represents which bank letter in the settings. You can set any letter (A-L) to represent any of the banks, however, both banks cannot have the same bank letter.

You can combine 6 WPS hobby units on the same channel without any bank overlap with having a unique letter for each bank (12 banks per channel / 2 banks per unit). However, if you want to fire banks on the same channel at the same exact time, you can set them to the same bank letter.

 

 

 

WPS pro banks are clearly labelled as capital letter A-L. 6 cues on the main panel A1-A6 are internally linked to the WPS slat on the Bank A.

In this case cues A1-A6 are in parallel and continuity cannot be tested for each individual cue separately (in case both - panel and WPS slat cues used at the same time). Each WPS slat connected to the WPS pro represents its own bank.

Similarly to WPS hobby, you can combine 12 WPS tiny units on the same channel without any bank overlap with having a unique letter for each bank (12 banks per channel / 1 bank per unit). However, if you want to fire banks on the same channel at the same exact time, you can set them to the same bank letter.

 

 

 

 

 

You can also combine up to 27 WPS hobby/WPS pro/WPS tiny units on the same channel and they all will fire the desired cue at the same exact time. 99 unique channels are available. However, at any given time only 500 receivers can be synchronised to a single WPS mote.
