Please could anyone try to help with a problem I have got with my sim racing setup?
I have had a Simucube OSW system up and running for a long time with no issues,but I recently swapped out the standard encoder in my large Mige motor,for the Simtronix version.
I installed the encoder and set up the Granity part of things with help from a friend who had done the same install on his motor.
I went into iRacing,and drove around for a while,and the motor was working as expected,but i noticed that the buttons on my steering wheel were activating without being pressed.
I checked in DiView,and sure enough,I could see the buttons activating with no input from me.
My wheel manufacturer said it was EMI interferance,and it does seem to be this,as the issue stops when i remove the wheel from touching the motor.
I didn’t have any problems when the wheel was not in contact with the motor.
I have run a ground lead from the motor to my 80/20 rig,and already have ferrite sleeves on all the cables involved,and I still have the issue.
I then decided to re-fit the original encoder and cable ,as I didn’t have the issue with those items,but it is still there even with the original equipment.
I didn’t alter the settings in Granity back to what I originally had though,could you look at what I have set,and see if you can see anything that might have caused this to happen?
I don’t know what to do next,my system has gone from working okay,to not being able to use it at all.
I’m not sure why the motor would suddenly start kicking out EMI,even with the original encoder fitted ?
My hardware configuration:
Simucube firmware 0.9.7 -(drive type)
Large Mige/model no. 130ST-M15015 -(motor type/model)
GraniteCore firmware version 1.7.1,Ioni drive version 10701 -(drive firmware version)
Problems arise when:
When sim racing wheel touches adaptor on Mige motor,causes buttons on my USB device to operate when not touched. -(describe how/where it happens)
How it behaves:
The motor does not sound audibly noisy at all ,but the USB device operates without input when touching the motor,and does not have the issue as soon as direct contact with the motor is broken. -(describe system behavior)
I can’t upload my settings.drc,as I am a new user,but here is a link : https://1drv.ms/u/s!AmuCcOHYWO_cg1Y1zXvQ8E4jZiAc
I’ve included my settings.drc and also screenshots of the Granity settings.
I am hoping that it is something in the settings,as the original encoder does the same thing,and everything was fine before .
I could go out and buy another wheelcase,and still have the same issue,if it is the motor that has somehow developed a problem?
I appreciate any help you can give,
