Try resetting your Controller. Using a paper clip, there is a small reset button on the underside of the SIXAXIS. Press it.

While your PS3 is still on, press the PS button on the controller.

Manual for mcx-8 reactive controller


Controller and Analyser
Share: zero.gifzero.gif zero.gifzero.gifzero.gif Reactive power controllers MCE and MCX are designed to measure the reactive power of an installation and to give the necessary instructions for connecting & disconnecting capacitors in order to maintain the desired cos ö.

All the controllers are commanded by a microprocessor that ensures an uniform ageing of contractors and capacitors by using a circular connection sequence that takes into account the time that each capacitor has been switched on.

Power factor value to be reached can be adjusted in a continuous way, between 0.85 inductive and 0.95 capacitive.

Standard working programs for controllers are 1:1:1:1, 1:2:2:2, 1:2:4:4, 1:2:4:8 and 1:1:2:2.

*Item Code: MCEzero.gif
Description:
Power factor controllers MCE measures the cos ö of a supply system and control the automatic connection and disconnection of compensation capacitors according to the desired cos ö. They are available in 6 or 12 steps. To see the technical specification and for these steps please go to the attached Pdf file.
*The MCE-12F plus (12 steps) power factor controller measures cos ö in the system and regulates the automatic connection and disconnection of the capacitors depending on the required cos ö. MCE-12F plus is specially designed to control equipments with static switches based on thyristors, which operate through a zero step controller. *
These reactive power controller are designed to measure the reactive power of an installation by giving the necessary instructions for connection and disconnection of capacitors in order to maintain the desired cos ö. Controllers are show in a 3-digit display of the set-up or actual values. They show the cos ö, that the total current & the harmonic distortion.

All controllers are commanded by a microprocessor that ensures an uniform ageing of contactors and capacitors by using a circular connection sequence which takes into account the time that each capacitor has been switched on (FIFO system).

Controllers can include a fully operational alarm relay that acts when the automatic capacitor bank cannot reach the required cos ö in case of high harmonic distortion level, over-current and over voltages. LED indicators show permanently capacitors steps that are connected. To see these steps please open the Pdf file.

I have a big ben ps3 controller, and when i push the ps button the red lights just flashing and then turns off, it just wont connect to my ps3.. please help!


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Heres how you can connect your controller to your PS3.

1. Press the tiny Reset Button on the back of the controller

2. Plug in the USB Connection wire

3. Restart Console

4. When loaded, Press the PS Button

5. Disconnect the USB wire

Then it should have recognised the controller and auto-assigned, hope this works for you


Rate me if it works so that i can help other people like you!

Thanks for using Fixya

2nd controller not working


Hi,

Try this: Switch on controller 1 on, now hold down the PS button, now select Re-assign controllers and set this one as 1. Now turn it off.

Switch on controller 2 and do the same as above but Re-assign the controller as 2. Now power off.

They are both trying to grab the top spot at the same time.

If this doesn't work, connect that controller using the usb cable and do the same as above.

If the controller still has botth LED's lit when the usb cable is connected, then either the controller is faulty or the PS3 is at faulty and may have to but set back to factory defaults, do this first and if that doesn't sort it out then the controller is faulty.

Thanks

Ps3 controller wont work unless hooked up to the system


Not sure if this is the same as my issue but worth a try anyway. I had tried 2 duashock 3 controllers with our 80GB system. Neither would work unless plugged in. Reset, left plugged in for hours, nothing worked. Tried a different USB cable and worked right away. I let if charge for a few minutes and unplugged it, still worked. I did notice that when I was using the first USB cable that when I checked status of the controller (charge, controller assignment, etc) it had a "-" instead of showing a charging animation. Hope this helps.

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.

How to connect a IDE-to-USB cable to a 2.5 inch drive?


1) You will do no harm by reversing the connector, but the PC won't "see" the drive at that point (if your drive has an activity LED it will be permanently ON if the cable is reversed) 2) Most times the USB will have enough power to drive the HD all by itself, but if you are going through a hub that may not be the case. In that situation, plug the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
