What's New

Beier UFR1230 ESC / USM-RC-2 sound module

Not so much a new item but something fairly exciting!

I have been running the UFR1230 ESC in my scania R620 for some months now and have to say that it id nothing short of superb. The only small niggle was the connection of lighting and direction data from the ESC to the USM. that has now gone away!

There are a couple of firmware upgrades for the ESC and the USM which, if you are running both, are invaluable. These upgrades introduce digital communication of all data from the UFR to the USM. So no more extra wires. One small not is that on the USM configuration the general/lights tab you do need to make sure that the "indicators possible" column is ticked all the way. then make sure that digital communication box is ticked on the UFR and the USM. Having done that the interface is tighter and better.

I had the UFR set to provide indicators, and all the standard lights (sides, dipped, main beam, brakes reverse and indicators.) plus the IR link to the trailer which also ran the leg servo. The leg servo took up a slot so I was a bit pressed for actions on the UFR. Now you have a choice. either the UFR OR the USM can run the IR interface. If you link the USM up then all the UFR light information can be transferred so you can have brakes, side lights indicators and reversing lights on the trailer via IR link. The IR servos are driven from the USM now and NOT the UFR. Also the USM can drive the IR lights!

If you decide to leave the IR link on the UFR then the IR link lighting information comes fram the UFR and NOT the USM, similarly the IR servo information. HMM some testing to do!

So this upgrade to the firmware introduces some good possibilities but as with everything you may need to think about the ramifications.
