Assign any valid CAN address to the steering wheel switch panel.
Racepad no longer have to be pre-programmed to a specific address. This enables customers that work in applications in the field without access to a GUI to use any replacement steering wheel switch panel on-hand. The steering wheel switch panel can be configured to automatically announce its address and accept a new address assignment as appropriate.
Racepad panel can send messages to the BUS indicating a button press or a button release event has occurred. This confirmation allows digital systems to have the same input acknowledgements as that of the latching position of a mechanical switch.
Racepad sends a continuous broadcast of messages indicating the press or release status of each button at that instance. The frequency of these messages can be adjusted within a wide range.
Racepad sends a continuous broadcast of messages indicating it is functioning correctly. The frequency of these messages can be adjusted within a wide range.
