If you are wiring the CAN keypads to a MaxxECU PRO CAN2 (which is not terminated) you need to do this, otherwise you DO NOT NEED this.

Configuration - Read carefully!

 

 

 

clip1045

1. Enable the Keypad module in CAN settings.

2. Change MaxxECU CAN bitrate to 250Kbit (default 500Kbit) since the CAN keypads as default communicates at 250Kbit and we must match this during the initial CAN keypad programming. <-- DO NOT FORGET TO RESTART MAXXECU AFTER CHANGING CAN BITRATE!!!

 

 

clip1047

3. Change the CAN keypad bus rate to 500kbit, select a suitable backlight color and press Write to Keypad button.

Note: This will reprogram the CAN keypad to use the higher CAN bus speed of 500Kbit, and right now it can't communicate with the MaxxECU since the difference in CAN speed.

 

 

clip1048

4. Change back to MaxxECU default 500Kbit CAN baudrate. <-- DO NOT FORGET TO RESTART MAXXECU AFTER CHANGING CAN BITRATE!!!

 

 

If you have followed the above instructions properly, you now have a working CAN keypad in your MaxxECU setup.

 

 

clip1049

You can anytime change the CAN keypad backlight color, but make sure you do not change the Bus baudrate setting!

red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, purple

 

input function

The digital input function to trigger when the current switch changes state from 0.

Note: A later update will include to trigger different digital input function based on the switch state above 0 and 1, for now use the internal output.

 

 

 

Examples

clip1051

The above example will use the default color Red on the switch when nothing is pressed, but when pressed it will light up Green, change to boost level 2 and stay Green until pressed again.

 

 

clip1052

The above example will change the switch state ONLY when the button is pressed, during key press, MaxxECU will start logging (if ECU loggings is set to input switch) and colored Green during press.
