Automatic page turner for printed books
PageFlip Lite automatic page turner works with conventional printed books, unlike our other products, which work with ebooks and digital sheet music. Simply attach up to 10 sheets (20 pages) to dedicated page turning arms and tap the included wireless pedal to turn pages in either direction. Great for music practice or for people with disabilities.
Page turning is an important ancillary process of reading. This mechanical process, however, is a source of great challenge and inconvenience to many people, including musicians, people with disabilities, and avid readers.
PageFlip has introduced a revolutionary, patented, electronic page turner to solve the problem of turning pages for people with disabilities. The page turner can be placed directly on a piano, music stand, kitchen counter, exercise equipment, or on the bed for convenient hands-free reading.
Simply slide the book into the book holder, preload up to 10 sheets (20 pages) into page slots, and activate the device to begin turning pages. The setup procedure for clamping the book and installing the pages is shown in Basic Setup.
The reader may advance the page in the forward or reverse directions by tapping a wireless hand/foot pedal (included), pressing a button on the front panel, or using a sip-n-puff switch (not included). Our mechanical page turner is designed to offer a bidirectional hands-free solution that is 100% reliable, portable, quiet, and affordable. Complete instructions can be found in our user manual. c

Make sure to install four fresh AA batteries in the page turner and three AA batteries in the pedal. The PageFlip Lite may be plugged into the wall using the supplied univeral AC adapter. Do not use any other adapter as that may damage the unit.
The blinking LED indicates that PageFlip Lite is on but not yet paired with the wireless pedal. You must turn on the wireless pedal to proceed with the pairing process to make the LED stop blinking. The LED will remain on even if you turn off the pedal.
PageFlip Lite and the wireless pedal automatically shut down after 30 minutes of inactivity. The page turner may also shut down if an error occurs during a page-turn cycle. Restart the page turner and pedal by moving the power switch from ON to OFF and back to ON.
No. PageFlip Lite turns a page only when the user triggers it by pressing a button, tapping a pedal, or activating an external switch.
Turn off both units to reset their wireless connection. Then, turn on the PageFlip Lite and observe that the LED blinks slowly. Next, turn on the pedal and observe that both sets of LEDs flash for three seconds and then remain on to signal that pairing is now complete.
PageFlip Lite can support books having approximately 500 pages with dimensions 9" (W) x 12" (H) x 1.3" (D). Although there is no minimum dimension, please note that narrower pages mean fewer sheets can be loaded on the arms for automatic page turning.
When reading on a table or desk, the clamp must be attached to the bottom of the book. When using PageFlip Lite on a music stand or piano, it is best to attach the clamp to the bottom of lightweight books and to the top of heavy books.
There is no need to lift the book to apply the clamp. Simply clamp to the top and hang PageFlip Lite upside down on the clamp pegs.
PageFlip Lite has ten forked arms, sitting at 0.75 inch intervals, beginning with the first arm that lies 0.5 inches from the center. The sheets of small books may therefore not reach all ten arms. A book with a width of 5 inches, for example, reaches only six arms (0.5" + 6 x 0.75" = 5"), allowing six sheets (12 pages) to be turned automatically before another batch of sheets must be loaded.
Attach 3" Post-It notes to the sheet margins to extend their width so that they may reach the outermost arms. This only applies to the few sheets that would otherwise not reach a forked arm.
Depending on the thickness of the book, the stiffness of the spine, and the type of paper, the sheets may not sit flat. Try to condition the book before reading by pressing the pages open to loosen the spine before attaching the book clamp.
The force that the clamp applies to one end of the book to help keep it open may cause pages to bulge on the opposite end. If necessary, attach a second clamp on the opposite end of the book to balance the restraining forces. You may use any standard clip for the opposite side to help balance the force and flatten the pages.
Yes, PageFlip Lite can turn loose pages that are inserted in a thin looseleaf binder. Use looseleafs with 1 inch binding rings to hold up to 275 sheets. The rotary movement of the forked arms as they pass the center permits them to swing past the looseleaf binder rings without incident. However, the large release tabs used to open the binder rings will interfere with the movement of the forked arms. Therefore, only use looseleafs that have one release tab and attach the book clamp to the side without the release tab.
Be sure to use the correct Y-adapter. Each Jellybean switch uses a 1/8" mono plug, whereas the PageFlip Lite has an outlet for a 1/8" stereo plug. Therefore, only a 1/8" stereo male to a dual 1/8" mono female Y-adapter will work.
