I currently bought everything to build a Simucube Setup for Simracing including:
- IONI Pro (arriving this week)
- Small Mige (BissC)
- NDR-480-48 PSU
As I read through the “SimuCUBE Firmware User Guide” I got a little bit confused. I don’t want to shoot neither the Simucube nor the IONI by doing any wrong steps, because I’m really low on budget!
I would take the following steps to get my setup running:
In which state should i keep the e-Switch? Pressed/Not-pressed/not connected?
Flash Simucube Bootloader
Because I bought the Simucube and Ioni Pro directly from granite devices, it should be already in DFU Mode and I only have to flash the “simucube-bootloader” via DfuSe_Demo like shown in step #3-#9, right? I would flash the bootloader that came with the “0.50.4c” Version
And the Micro-USB will be pluged into the X3 connector right?
Install Simucube Firmwareupdate via SimuCUBE Configuration Tool
I could not really figure out how this works but I assume that the “Firmware Update Wizard” will guide me through every step and file that is needed to successfully install the firmware.
Ioni Firmware Update
It is said that after Simucube Firmwareupdate the Simucube will boot automatically and update IONI Firmware automatically. So there is no need to plug the USB Cable to X4? Or use any other software as Granity? Or is it recommended to use Granity to configure IONI drive?
First question: When I bought my Mige i was asked whether or not i want to have the Biss-C Encoder. Now I read somewhere that there are different types of Biss-C. How do I know which one came with my Motor?
Secound question: Should i use Granity to upload the Motor-settings? Is there a premade *.drc file for small mige with Biss-C encoder that I could use?
Is there any step I missed?
Sorry for the long post and perhaps stupid questions. I just hope to figure everything out before my holliday starts to complete the project.
Thank you in advance!
