Transbrake control

(via the transbrake hold button input).

 

Disable over speed

Disable the transbrake control over a certain speed to prevent accidental activation

 

release delay

Specifies the delay of the transbrake function after the button has been released.

 

hold control

Use the transbrake hold button input - When a transbrake button is wired and enabled in MaxxECU.

Transbrake output always on (external button) - The hold control is used with an external switch.

 

 

Transbrake bump/creep

(via the transbrake bump/creep input).

 

 

bump/creep mode

bump (one step per button press)

creep (moves while the button is pressed)

 

Solenoid frequency

Specifies the PWM frequency to give good control. To high frequency will result in unpredictable creep characteristics. <-- needs to be adjusted to suit your need.

 

Stage duty

The stage duty/time is the first "bump" to stage. After this move, each additional press of the button uses the "correction step" (which should be smaller). After a timeout of 10 seconds the "stage" settings are automatically used again.

 

Stage time

The stage duty/time is the first "bump" to stage. After this move, each additional press of the button uses the "correction step" (which should be smaller). After a timeout of 10 seconds the "stage" settings are automatically used again.

 

Correction step duty

When the above stage duty has been applied, and next bump/creep phase is in move, this is the applied duty. This value should be smaller than the above stage duty.

 

Correction step time

When the above stage DUTY/TIME has been applied, and next bump/creep phase is in move, the above correction duty will be applied during the specified time. This value should be smaller than the above stage TIME.

 

Note: The purpose of the correction step duty/time settings is to get smaller "jumps" if the vehicle didn't reach the stage at first try.

 

 

Wiring

 

A transbrake solenoid and a Solid State Relay (SSR) is required go get bump/creep function (automatic gearbox only).
