The new CL_SPU + BLDRV2-24 driver cards
replace the older BLDRV-12/24 cards and are
recommended for new systems.
A limited number of older BLDRV-12/24 cards
are still available for customers who wish to add cards to
their existing installations or as replacements - please
contact me for details.
NOTE the new CL_SPU & BLDRV2-24 cards are NOT
compatible with the older BLDRV-12/24 cards and can not be
combined in the same installation.
modular brushless motor driver for force feedback
Supplied with USB-TTL cable and logic power switch.
The CL_SPU and BLDRV2-24 cards DO NOT
form a Plug and Play system - they must be "engineered" into
a properly designed and constructed Control Loader (FFB) system. Please read
all the project information listed on the
and FFB Yoke page BEFORE
Please email me if you have any
The CL_SPU & BLDRV2-24 cards are available as
special order items (despatch is typically 1 week following order).
To order cards please email me
at the email address below indicating the number of cards
required and the destination country. For small number
orders I will then send you a PayPal email invoice detailing
the total cost (including standard airmail delivery to
non-UK destinations). Secure payment can then be made
using the links on your email invoice..
For a single pilot
station installation, 1 x CL_SPU is required, PLUS 1
BLDRV2-24's - one for each flight control axis (motor).
(So, for example, a single flight yoke will
typically require 1 x CL_SPU + 2 x BLDR2-24's. The CL_SPU
can support up to three (3) BLDRV2-24's to allow a rudder
axis to be included.)
CL_SPU card - UKŁ70 each + P&P (Includes
FTDI chipset USB/TTL comms cable and STDP logic power
BLDRV2-24 card - UKŁ99.50 each + P&P
(For customers requiring the older
BLDRV-12/24 card for existing installations a limited number
are still available atUKŁ119.50
each + P&P.)
For overseas orders P&P will normally vary between UKŁ15 and UKŁ20 (including
insured airmail to non UK destinations where available) depending on the
number of cards ordered. UK delivery P&P will be about Ł10.
There is no VAT payable on these
orders as BFF Design Ltd is not UK VAT registered.
Additional software licensing charges apply
for commercial use of the BFF CL software (please contact me
Customs or other import charges/duties on deliveries to
non-EU destinations may be incurred - I am not able to
predict what these will be and the customer is fully responsible for
IMPORTANT - Technical
I am able to provide a
reasonable amount of free email technical support for
card customers. However there are practical limits
on the total amount of support time per order the relatively low sales
price of the cards can cover.
For non-commercial home-use customers I
can provide, free of charge, a cumulative total of two
(2) hours of technical support time per order.
Subsequent technical support
time will be charged at a rate of UKŁ40 per hour (for
support provided during normal office hours).
If you feel you may need more than 2 hours of technical
support time then please contact me before ordering cards.
Please read all the project documents and satisfy yourself
that you can manage the work required in building your CL
controls BEFORE purchasing cards and attempting the project.
Despatch: is usually about 5 working
days (1 week) after order placement; I'll let you know if
there will be any delays before ordering. Note each card is
made and tested to order and this takes a bit of time.
Terms & Conditions: Please read the
Terms and Conditions
BEFORE ordering. Please read the important note above on
Delivery Times: Typically 5 to 10
working days after despatch - however this will vary with
destination and the usual delaying factors (holidays,
customs, local conditions etc).
NOTE: I normally supply the
driver cards only; to complete the
project you will need to source for yourself all other components
required for the system.
The brushless motors and encoders specified
in the project drawings are available from the Italian motor
Ing. Pini. At times I do have small numbers of stock
motors and encoders - please enquire for availability and
I am not able to confirm if
brushless motors other than those specified in the
plans and documents are
suitable for use in a FFB system. If the motors you wish to
use do not have sinusoidal back-EMF characteristics it is
unlikely that they will provide smooth enough force feel. I
can't tell if they have these characteristics without
physically testing them.
A BFF CL Software
non-commercial home-use licence is included with the price of card orders
(one per pilot station).
To unlock the software on a specified PC you must run the
software then follow the registration prompts and email your
PC ID to me. I can then send you the unlock key for that PC.
Please contact me if you wish to use the BFF
CL drivers and software for commercial projects.
