Mini Commander ACC Connections and Outputs
|Mini Commander ACC operating in standard mode|
|This configuration is the most typical operation of the Mini Commander ACC. Lighting is driven from the LC-1 and LC-2 outputs. LC-2 will support a strobe feature. HC-1 and HC-2 will drive vibration motors or can motors in one direction. Typical applications include Log Loaders, Saw Mills, Milk Cars, Cabooses.|
|Mini Commander ACC driving one bi-directional motor on LC1 / LC2|
|This mode of operation is great for applications that require a single
bi-directional motor, yet have a solenoid to operate as well.
Typical applications are Coal Loaders and Turntables. The
operation is controlled by the Boost/Brake or Throttle/Dir keys, your
choice. All of the configure-ability still exists on HC-1 and
HC-2, so you can set the optimum voltage and pulse length for operation
* this mode requires firmware v08 or greater

|When two bi-directional motors are needed, this mode will used.
The Throttle knob operates the selected motion proportionally.
Pressing DIR will select the throttle to drive the LC-1 and LC-2
outputs. Pressing Boost/Brake will select the throttle to drive the HC-1 and HC-2 outputs. The
last selection for LC-1 and LC-2 (controlled by pressing DIR) is
remembered after pressing Boost/Brake motion. Pressing DIR twice
after Boost/Brake, will reverse the drive signals on LC-1 and LC-2.
When used in a crane, the AUX-1 key (was HC-1) drive signals are output to the P1 connector on pin 4. This allows connection to a bucket / electro-magnet driver, which is supplied as part of the Crane Commander Kit.
In addition to all these features, a "JOG" down is supported on the hook. Ever notice how the hook creeps up/down when the boom turns? The jog feature keeps the hook from jamming against the boom. The jog operates even while the crane is rotating, thus no stopping to re-position the hook is required. The jog feature is configurable, and activated by the AUX-2 key.
* this mode requires firmware v0C or greater

|This mode is for motors that are high current or require special consideration (ie: high inductance). The wiring diagram is available here.|
