List of required items for wiring and usage of SimuCUBE as force feedback controller.
Item Quantity Links / sources Notes
SimuCUBE 1 Web store
IONI Pro or IONI Pro HC 1 Web store Decide drive model based on the required current to the motor. To compare IONI models, see IONI device model comparison. Suggestions:
24 to 48 VDC power supply, recommended 300 W minimum 1 IONI drive has feature called "power consumption limit" which allows using also undersized power supplies without causing errors. However, if power consumption limit activates, then produced torque will be also reduced.
Servo motor 1 List of motors for SimuCUBE Recommended at least 15 Nm peak torque for direct drive wheel applications. Check motor specifications the required current. IONI Pro HC can output 25 A (peak of sine) current, which equals 17.7 A RMS current (note that AC motor manufacturers typically give current rantings as RMS value).
Mini USB cables (from USB A to USB Mini B) 1-2 Digikey 1175-1053-ND SimuCUBE has two Mini USB ports, one for USB HID (force feedback interface) and one for Granity connection. One cable is sufficient but requires swapping cable between the ports during configuration step. Two cables are recommended.
15 pin (two row type) D-Sub male connector + connector hood (cover) 1 List of D-Sub 15 pin connector parts This is the mating connector for encoder port of SimuCUBE, get these unless your motor comes with SimuCUBE/IONI/Argon compatible pre-made encoder cable.
Compatible firmware (software) 1 MMos firmware is available from various internet sites/forums.
