Beginners help on Ipac Ultimate and RGB lights
« on: May 26, 2015, 09:16:16 pm »
I have spent some hours trying to figure this out and was recommended to ask seek assistance here.

I am looking to purchasing from Ultimark some RGB lighted buttons and controller to use with Hyperspin and Ledblinky.

After re-reading and trying to find more info I am stumped a bit, I want to be sure that my shopping cart has all I need to install lighted buttons and the 4-8 way controller and the correct interface or interfaces needed.

If I get the Ultimarc Ultimate it looks like I need the PacLED64 Board as well to light the controls and buttons, that's correct right?

Ultimarc Ultimate I/o hooks up to join the keyboard assignment to the button or controller, but then how does the pacled64

So far my list is
2 Jsticks and 2 illuminated stick handles
Ultralux RGB Buttons
Ipac Ultimate
PacLED64  ( Question is it needed since the Ultimate is also in this purchase? )

I appreciate some guidance on this if any one has the answer. Thank you

I just noticed I placed this into the completely wrong forum. Can a moderator please move this to the right one. I would hate to double post.

The PacLED isn't needed, the functionality is in the ultimate.  Make sure you add the servo board for the sticks.

I actually just installed the same setup and used the ultimate board. I can confirm you do not need a PacLED. Just make sure you have the LED power cable which I think comes standard.

I will leave this posted, since you had a couple of replies.
This might be better suited for Software Forum, but since flashing lighted buttons could be considered automation, I don't see any problem with posting it here.
I would personally like to see more posts of this kind on here.

I am in the same situation. Can you tell me exactly where you plug in the RGB connector (from the U-track) into the Ultimate I\O.

Looking at a picture of the U-track, it looks like the standard RGB blue (plus a ground) you should be able to plug it into any 1 of the 32 LED slots. And if there is a ground wire, just connect to a ground pin.
