The TRC programmable “Plug-and-Play” Multi Controller is a USB connected I/O board offering 23 Input/Output lines. Each I/O line is capable of or driving an LED (Light Emitting Diode, max. 20 mA), or driving a servo motor, or reading the position of a switch.
You choose the function of each I/O line. Each line contains three connectors (input connector, output connector and servo connector). These lines may be used to control many different flight simulator functions.
The Multi Controller software (included with the controller board) uses the I/O system from the FSUIPC software (written by Pete Dowson) to connect to Microsoft Flight Simulator. This PC compatible software is capable of recognizing up to 32 Multi Controllers connected to the PC via a single USB cable, thereby creating the most advanced control system for flight simulation ever (multiple USB devices can be connected by daisy chaining USB hubs).
The present release of the Multi Controller software supports also Project Magenta codes (see www.schiratti.com
With thanks to Jonathan Richardson and Enrico Schiratti of Project Magenta!
By adding one or more inexpensive USB hubs to your PC, you may connect up to 32 of these controllers to your PC. This will allow the connection of up to 736 instruments, 736 switches, 736 LED’s (outputs) to your PC (or a combination thereof), thus allowing nearly limitless possibilities in simulator configuration!
The TRC programmable Multi Controller uses the same proven technical architecture as the Central Control Unit (CCU), and may be the ultimate solution for designing your cockpit!
The TRC programmable Multi Controller can be used to drive most single pointer gauges.
For more complicated gauges - like an Altimeter, VOR's the use of the CCU is recommended.
To see which gauges you can drive with the Multi Controller, you can download the user manual of the Multi Controller in the Support Section / Document Centre.
For use on 32 bit systems. 64 bit version is in development.
