  • SSC switch emulator!

    A shortcoming of the VEX radios are their lack of a latching switch. The Nautilus Drydocks and KMC Designs are proud to present a perfect solution in the SSC module, which allows any radio channel to mimic the effects of a latching 2, 3, 4 or even 5 position switch. This is perfect for use in any number of applications, including torpedo doors, periscopes, ballast control, etc.

    The Step Servo Controller (SSC) is designed to alter the behavior of a channel so that it acts as if it were being controlled
    from a 2, 3, 4 or 5-position switch. The input device on your transmitter may be a stick, knob, dial or Up/Down buttons, and the
    “command range” is broken up into three regions: Up/Left, Middle, and Down/Right. The output positions span the full range of
    servo travel and however many intermediate steps the SSC has been set up to provide.

    Each time the input is cycled to “Up/Left” and back to Middle the SSC will move the servo one step closer to the Up/Left
    end of the range, and for each Down/Right command the SSC will move the servo one step in the Down/Right direction. The
    power-up starting position may be set to any of the available positions, as well as the commanded position upon loss of radio
    signal. (SSC may also be configured to HOLD the last commanded position on signal loss.)
