This encoder has 32 inputs available, which is enough to connect 2 joysticks with 8 buttons each, 2 player start buttons, 2 coin inputs and now has an additional 4 inputs for extra buttons or whatever else you may wish to include. This is more than enough to handle everything on a control panel in most DIY arcade cabinet projects.
The I-PAC is the only keyboard encoder to offer the follwoing features:
56 inputs, each with it’s own dedicated microprocessor pin. No interaction or delays, vital for multi-button games such as fighting games.
Emulates a USB keyboard, yet breaks through the USB simultaneously-pressed-switch limit of 6 switches (plus ctrl,alt,shift) which afflicts all USB keyboard devices. This is because it has
inbuilt full native USB support, and does not rely on an add-on adaptor.
A shift function which allows ANY input to be assigned to a shifted secondary keycode and the shift button can have it’s own function too so no need for a dedicated extra control panel button.
A self-test LED which not only gives an instant visible check of your installation, but can also indicate which connection (if any) is causing a problem.
The I-pac works with MAME, or can be fully programmable and configured to your output keystrokes require. It also supports Volume up/down, MOUSE left/right buttons, power, sleep and wake functions.
Only available with USB cable (Included in price).
