Software Installation

Connection

Veronte PCS is a pre-configured device. It is built with an Autopilot 1x (hardware version 4.8) inside to manage communications, so configuration is done through the 1x. Nonetheless, MicroHard and DTC radios are configured directly with a computer via ethernet.

Wifi connection

To install the required software and configure Veronte Autopilot 1x, read the 1x Software Manual.

Joystick Configuration

Joystick connection is preconfigured on the main external connector (Pin 57 EQEP_S) with 1x PDI Builder . Wireless joystick connection is also possible with the installation of a joystick receiver on the Expansion Bay.

For more information, visit 1x PDI Builder manual -> Stick.

PWM Configuration

PWMs 1 and 2 are pre-configured for a tracker antenna. This does not disable them for different applications (with a proper configuration).

To configure PWM signals for different applications, visit 1x PDI Builder manual -> PWM.

Advanced Wi-Fi Configuration

  1. Connect the computer to the ethernet cable.

  2. Open a browser and introduce the following address on the search bar: 192.168.8.1.

  3. The user name is “admin” and the password is “EmbentionPCS21”. For being able to Access this menu, the unit has to be linked.

  4. Go to “SETUP WIZARD -> STEP 3 - WIFI”. Here it is possible to configure the wifi password and activate/deactivate antennas.

Important

The wifi SSID is: “PCS” + <PCS serial number> + “_2.1_” + <”2G” for 2.4GHz frequency and 5G for “5GHz” frequency>. Example: PCS10172_2.1_2G.

Important

The wifi password is: “DHPKhO7X6Ne0qNm0f2RS” + <PCS serial number>. Example: DHPKhO7X6Ne0qNm0f2RS10172. User can change it if wished.

Tilt activation distance

In case of using a Veronte T28, the threshold range (named as Tilt activation distance) can be changed with Veronte Ops, in the variable Tilt Activation distance.

To know how to change any variable in Veronte Ops, read Veronte Ops manual -> Inputs.

Note

When the aircraft passes the long range threshold, PCS enables the tilt movement, the second directional antenna and disables the omnidirectional antenna.
