Description Manuals
 

A USB shift light indicator combined with joystick interface board - for PC simulator use only.

The majority of modern real race cars have some form of LED and/or LCD shift light display on the dash board to provide the driver with the optimal shift points and also to give them some vital information about their car. The SLI-F1 allows you to do just that in the world of simulation.

With some simple free to use plugins and software utilities you can configure the SLI-F1 to show your optimal rev shift points and extract all kinds of car information to display on the device including RPM, gear, speed, engine temperature, tyre pressures, lap time, lap delta...plus many, many more. You can also connect buttons, rotary encoders and rotary switches to the device to scroll through different information on the LED displays so you don't even have to take your hands off the steering wheel. The SLI-F1 is also a USB joystick interface so you can use buttons and switches for other functions within your simulator software, such as pit limiter or adjusting the brake bias without even installing any extra drivers. Just connect them up, plug the device into the PC and it will detect the buttons right away.

With a horizontal bar of 15 high-intensity rev indicator LEDs at the top in blocks of five from left to right [Green - Red - Blue] you are given plenty of warning of when to shift either by illuminating one after the other, in blocks of colour or converging from each side. You can set the optimal shifting points, too.

Two clusters of three LEDs at each side featuring red, yellow, blue LED indicators can be used for displaying such things as flags, critical temperatures or other such warnings. You can also connect a further external LEDS into the device should you require them.

The device can be provided as the PCB on its own or with our precision CNC machined aluminium enclosure for the ultra in protection and good looks. This can easily be mounted on a steering wheel, dash board or button box.

The board is controlled by third party software such as SLImax Manager Pro or Fanaleds. Either of these applications can be downloaded from their respective websites and there may be an additional cost associated with them.

The SLI-F1 has button inputs cannot be assigned to encoder mode via software. There are currently four firmware versions available that should meet the requirements of most users however more will be added in time. You can apply the firmware versions to the device through USB connection by downloading the software from the Downloads tab.

Firmware V1.12
- 20 button inputs
- 0 rotary encoder inputs
- 8 rotary switch inputs - 1 switch activates 12 button inputs. All other switches are linked to stepped analogue inputs which is set up for us by Fanaleds software
-1 analog input with 10-bit (1024 steps) resolution - ideal for potentiometer or hall sensor clutch paddles.

Firmware V1.13
- 14 button inputs
- 3 rotary encoder inputs (for 1:2 ratio encoders - e.g. ELMA)
- 8 rotary switch inputs - 1 switch activates 12 button inputs. All other switches are linked to stepped analogue inputs which is set up for us by Fanaleds software
-1 analog input with 10-bit (1024 steps) resolution - ideal for potentiometer or hall sensor clutch paddles.

Firmware V1.15
- 14 button inputs
- 3 rotary encoder inputs (1:1 ratio encoders - e.g. CTS)
- 8 rotary switch inputs - 1 switch activates 12 button inputs. All other switches are linked to stepped analogue inputs which is set up for us by Fanaleds software
-1 analog input with 10-bit (1024 steps) resolution - ideal for potentiometer or hall sensor clutch paddles.
