Controller Boards

Controller board 1: Terminal Blocks
ctrlexp1_small.jpg (26323 bytes) Passes the controller lines through to terminal blocks. For easy connection of third party controller interfaces, keyboard encoders, game pad hacks, and the like.

Controller board 2: Pass through JAMMA
ctrlexp2_small.jpg (25313 bytes) Passes the controller lines through to a female JAMMA edge connector. This board is useful in situations where you already have some other kind of JAMMA interface for your game console which has fuctional controls but does not perform well in the audio/video. Use the SCART To JAMMA Adapter for excellent audio and video results, while using others for controls only.

Controller board 3: Sony Playstation 1/2 Interface.

Fully Programmable Sony Playstation controller interface. Up to 28 individual inputs are available for arcade pushbuttons and joysticks. Each one of them can be programmed to any function found on player 1 and player 2 control pads. Profiles (joystick/button mappings) are stored in the large internal non-volatile memory.

Synchronous Rapid Fire. Any input may be configured for rapid fire to reduce finger wearout.

Intuitive User Interface. Profile selection and programming is done entirely on the unit itself. There is no need to connect a computer or run special configuration software.

Hardware Test Mode. Can test if the hardware is operating correctly and troubleshoot problems with strangely wired arcade control panels. Eliminates the need for multimeter tests.

Excellent Compatibility. This device may be connected to all Sony Playstation and Playstation 2 hardware, as well as many different third party controller converters.

Kick Harness Support. Several popular JAMMA plus kick harnesses are supported with the (optional) kick harness board.
