PS2 Controller Starter Kit - Wireless

PS2 Controller Starter Kit - Wireless

  • Availability:
  • Product Code: SKPSW
  • Warranty Period: 12 months

SKPSW is the wireless version of SKPS which is designed to replace the off-the-shelf wireless PS2 controller. SKPSW incorporates the nRF24L01+ 2.4GHz tranceiver with frequency hopping technology for robust and reliable wireless link. SKPSW will switch to another frequency band automatically when interference is detected. In another words, interference with other wireless controller and lost of control will be the matter of the past.
SKPSW consists of SKPSW-TX and SKPSW-RX. The SKPSW-TX is the transmitter which is connected to the wired version of PS2 controller and powered by 2 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The SKPSW-RX is the receiver which will be connected to the host microcontroller or computer via UART. It has the same footprint and is compatible with SKPS. However, SKPSW only has microcontroller (binary) mode and does not have ASCII mode. For the existing system which uses the SKPS in microcontroller mode, it’s a direct drop in replacement with the SKPSW.
  • Consists of a transmitter (SKPSW-TX) and a receiver (SKPSW-RX) module.
  • Maximum Range: 100m line-of-sight.
  • Maximum 6 pairs of SKPSW can operate at the same time.
  • Transmitter is powered by 2 x 18650 Li-Ion battery while receiver is powered by 5V from the host.
  • Low voltage and inactivity alarm for transmitter.
  • Easy binding between transmitter and receiver.
  • 5V TTL UART interface to microcontroller or computer.
  • Selectable UART baud rate: 4800, 9600, 57600, 115200.
  • Vibrator motor on PS2 is controllable.
  • PS2 controller will operate in analog mode.
  • LED indicators for wireless link and PS2 controller status.
  • Compatible with SKPS in microcontroller mode.
 NOTE: PS2 controller and the batteries are not included.
It is possible to replace this ps2 controller with Xbee ? ( Muhammad Fairuz Bin Zaili, 11/10/2017 )
Hi, sorry we can not change the item in the kit. Sorry again.
After I connect the controller to the SKPSW-TX, the LED(ps2) stays on steadily with high brightness. After i press button on joytick controller, it does not show any effects. There isno problem with the controller as it run smoothly with Bluetooth module. May I know what is the problems and how to solve it? Thanks. ( zhi jian, 04/05/2017 )
Hi zhi jian, thanks for the feedback. We need more information about the hardware setup, since this section is only for short enquiries, either you can post your problem at our technical forum or you can directly email to support@cytron.com.my. Our technical team will follow up your problem. Thanks.
can skpsw be connected with psc28a. I haw psc28a and ps2 controller wireless, but am need long range for example 100m ( Lukasz, 10/08/2016 )

Hi, you cannot connect the skpsw with psc28a. For further inquiry, kindly visit our technical forum as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks.smiley  

During the UART communication, Is that the SKPSW-TX receiving decimal type data from the SKPSW-RX and return logic 0 and 1 to indicate the button pressed on controller? If is so,are those decimal indicating each button defined in the SKPSW-TX? Thanks for help.. ( Poon, 14/07/2016 )

Hi. Yes, It received data in decimal and return logic 0 and 1 to indicate button is pressed. You can refer to the user manual (page 22, Communication protocol) for more information. Kindly visit our technical forum as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks :)

Is it skpsw compatible with Arm Cortex M3 processor? I wan to use PS2 controller to controller a small size racing car. ( Poon, 01/06/2016 )

SKPSW is using UART to communicate, I believe ARM Cortex M3 have UART. But of course you need to be able to program the ARM for that purpose.

can skps be connected with arduino?can the same sample code be used? ( azman, 17/02/2016 )

Hi, Yes, SKPS can be connected to Arduino board. You can check out this tutorial as reference. FYI, sample code provided in the product page is for PIC microcontroller. Thanks. :)

Is the SKPSW system works the same as FUTABA FASST Spread Spectrum? ( K A, 01/12/2015 )

Hi. This SKPSW systems does not work same as FUTABA FASST Spread Spectrum. Thanks. :)

Hi. I bought 2 skpsw for robot war.. and the signal is good when I am using it outside the battlefield but when I am using it in the battlefield the signal in not stable and intermittent during battle. Can I know why? ( K A, 30/11/2015 )

Hi.There are many factors that affect its signal such as obstacle, environment and etc. Thanks. :)

may i know, can i just buy the receiver only? and if i want to repair some of the receiver that i already have, can you fix it? ( fmy, 02/07/2015 )

Sorry, the wireless PS2 come in 1 set and we cannot repair the receiver too.

can it be connected with a quad rotor???? ( shubham raval, 11/03/2015 )

It depends, we have seen any ready to plug and use Quad rotor for this device. But if your quadrotor has controller and is able to communicate via UART, sure you can program it. If you have further inquiry, please do discuss in our technical forum as this section is for short inquiry, thanks :)
