When you receive your ForceDecks FD4000 or FDLite (V.1) system, some assembly will be required.
Both systems feature the same cables and connections, so this article applies to both.
What's in the box?
- Primary plate (default: left)
- Secondary plate (default: right)
- USB cable
- Primary-to-Secondary cable
- Primary power cable
- Wall power cable
- Wall power adapter (AU/EU/UK/US adapters included)
It is important that the floor or surface where the platform is mounted should be as rigid as possible to minimise any vibrations. The following are examples of unsuitable surfaces:
To test the flatness of your surface, step on each corner of the platform to ensure there is no movement or rocking.
Leave a small gap between the left and right plate to minimise cross-interference (which can be caused by the plates touching) and a small gap between the outside edge of the safety frame.
Putting it all together...
|1||Ensure you have at least a 1m (3ft) radius of clear space around the ForceDecks.
Place the Primary and Secondary ForceDecks Plates next to each other.
|2||Plug the Primary-to-Secondary cable into the Primary ForceDecks Plate and the Secondary ForceDecks Plate.|
|3||Plug the Primary Power Cable into the Primary ForceDecks Plate.|
|4||Plug the Primary Power Cable into the Wall Adapter Cable.|
|5||Choose suitable Wall Power Adapter (multiple country adapter types supplied) and click firmly into place.|
|6||Plug the USB Cable into the Primary ForceDecks Plate, and the other end into your computer.|
|7||And you're all set up!|
