I’m waiting for the weekend to configure for the first time my new Simucube board. In the meanwhile I’m collecting some info, advice, preparing cables, etc.
I downloaded the “reduced current” drc file from granite wiki to test the motor and I’ll obviously use it for the first time configuration.
Assuming everything will be ok, anybody has a good drc file for my hardware:
IONI PRO HC
I drive mostly on rf2, Raceroom and sometimes on Dirt Rally, RBR and kartkraft.
Thanks a lot.
This DRC file also seems to have a bit less maximum current that is possible with 480W PSU for the Small mige motor. Maximum (MMC parameter) should be 12.86 A which will then give out very close to 20 Nm of torque.
Also, the AXI parameter could be different depending on your phase wiring. If you find that there are huge notches and no FFB when you turn the wheel, switch out any two motor phase wires OR change the AXI invert checkbox.
Ok, changed also MPP in file to 480. I’ll report here my progress (hopefully today the courier will deliver the package so I can try everything tonight). With MMC to 12.86 should I set MCC higher too? Thanks again
Edit: I set MCC to 11.5 (I read one wiki discussions about that)
Hi guys, report time
the drc file uploaded do not work unfortunately, the motor doesn’t even start
so I tried with that one: simucube 480W PSU GD-2500.drc (8.2 KB) (found somewhere online) and it worked! It’s totally a new experience with simucube, Now I’m driving at 40% (4.8 A) on rf2 with porsche 911 on laguna seca laser scan and it’s beautiful
The only one problem is that I can’t set the correct rotation in rf2, no matter what I set i SC tool or rf2… anybody knows how to set the correct rotation? Tried also to set 1440 (I read some post about that online) but that doesn’t help.
In controller.json I set:
“Steering Wheel Maximum Rotation Default”:1440,
“Steering Wheel Maximum Rotation Default#”:“Default maximum wheel range to use when not read from driver, from 40 to 1440 degrees”,
“Steering Wheel Maximum Rotation from Driver”:false,
“Steering Wheel Maximum Rotation from Driver#”:“Whether to read the steering wheel rotation from the wheel driver, if possible”,
“Steering Wheel Range”:620,
“Steering Wheel Range#”:“Degrees of steering wheel rotation, both visual and physical (if available)”,
“Steering Wheel Software Rotation”:true,
