Pairing the MCU W-2 joystick with the cradle

The MCU W-2 is supplied pre-paired and this procedure is only required if part of the system is replaced.

Prior to pairing the MCU W-2 cradle to the joystick please ensure that:

  • The MCU W-2 cradle power cable is unplugged
  • The battery in the MCU W-2 joystick has been removed

To pair the MCU W-2 joystick to the cradle please do the following: 

1. Plug-in power to the cradle.

2. Wait five seconds for the cradle to power up and the LED start-up sequence to complete.

3. Push and hold the cradle reset button until the pairing status LED rapidly flashes blue. This typically takes three seconds.
