Midi System - 12 Control Outputs

Product Code: UNI-STN-001


Two MCS-6E 6-Way Control Units are simply ganged together via a CAN Bus connection to double the systems control capacity. Providing two extra outputs with up to 8 individual or combined functions.

A 9 button handset provides 8 individual function buttons and one combination button. Based upon established tactile switch technology that can be ‘user’ programmed to suit a wide variety of applications.

Combining two MCS-6E control units and the 9 button handset has all the features and functions of the MCS-MINI System, but due to the increased number of switches and associated outputs is ideally suited to applications needing more of both these operational facilities. Also, because there are actually more control lines (outputs) than switches this combination of devices is suited to applications where a single switch needs more than one output, for example flashing head lights, as one output is required per head lamp or alternatively alternating rear red lamps - note this feature is not available on the Mini or Maxi systems.

An alternative use for multiple outputs is to combine them to increase current capacity to control heavy duty devices like rotational light bars. Therefore combining two outputs would increase the current capability two fold and combining three outputs would triple the capacity.

The MCS-Midi System operates at both 12 and 24 volt.

Specification Dimensions Typical Application Schematic Data Sheets

With the MCS-MIDI having 8 standard buttons, and 8 standard outputs there are some special operational features.

For example output 9 is active when the first combination is active (say 999) and output 10 is active when the second combination is active (say At Scene). Therefore these would be useful for activating sirens when in the ‘Response\999’ combination mode, or perhaps activating ‘Rear Reds’ when in the ‘At Scene’ mode. That then leaves 2 outputs that are multifunctional. Where output 11 always follows button 3, where the user can configure the system so these buttons are steady on together (double the current draw) OR flash in an alternating pattern at 60BPM. With output 12 being capable of being configured to be active whenever any button is pressed OR is active whenever the unit is awake.

Handset Features
• Each button can be set with 1 of 8 back light colours upon each individual action and to suit switch function
• All Clear function - when activated, all buttons on the handset are turned off, and held off as long as the input stays active
• Buttons can be individually allocated with the use self adhesive, pre-printed legends (supplied) or bespoke legends (available to order)
• 3 stage back illumination - low when OFF, high when ON, both levels automatically dim when vehicle side lights are ON
• Each small button can be latching or momentary
• Double width combo button can have a multi-function 'HOT' key double or triple action depending on required function and change colour depending on its mode
• A fully tactile one piece wipe clean keypad with positive clicks
• Option to enable 'beep' every time a button is pressed and/or 'beep' every 5 seconds when switch active
• Pressing a button or the ignition input wakes unit from sleep mode so long as battery voltage is within operating range
• Supplied complete with protective rubber surround as standard which can be removed for dash mounted applications
