If you download "Sentry 12-Key Controller Instructions" you will find charts
on pages 26 and 27 showing the segments for each Cone-Fire program. You can
change the programs to suit your needs. That is the beauty of a digital
controller: The advanced user can modify the firing infinitely.

To download the manual, visit and click on "Manuals" at
the top of the page.
