Ultimarc Spintrak spinner question
« on: April 13, 2019, 01:34:36 am »
Hi guys,
I want to use two Spintrak spinners at the same time. I have difficulties to set one of them to use the Y axis. By default the small USB Interface is set to the X axis. I have a I-PAC2 encoder as well. But it uses the X axis as well and I cant find any settings in the WinIPAC tool to change it.
Can someone please give me a hint?

If you aren't using the trackball pins on the I-Pac, pull the Yellow, Green, and White SpinTrak connector pins from the Dupont housing and change the wire order to "Brown-Yellow-Green-White" to use the I-Pac trackball Y-axis pins.

Default SpinTrak Dupont housing wire order: (left)


SpinTrak wire colors:

Brown    +5 Volts
Yellow    X1

Also, in MAME the axis of each device can be reversed in analog settings.
