  • 30 Min Off Delay, M2-ATX?

    Has anyone found a reliable, easy way to get around the stock timings on the M2-ATX? I looked around here and didn't see any but I wanted to ask before I go off to reinvent the wheel. All I want is a long enough initial delay to not be rebooting my system everytime I go into a gas station or post office. I'm leaning towards creating a circuit that supplys power to the signal wire for ~30 min after the car is switched off.

    So offdelay #6 doesn't work for what you want?

    30 min/never (taxi mode)

    Thanatos.

      From what I understand that leaves the 5v rail on all the time unless the battery drops below 11 volts. I was looking for a setting with hardoff that used the 30min initial off. So a setting that was 30min/2hours, or something similiar.

        Yes. Buy a DS-ATX.

        But on a serious note, I am also trying to figure out a way to change the timings "on-the-fly" when using the M2-ATX. So I am interested to hear any ideas you may have.

          i am very interested in this answer as well, as I'd love a 30min/2hour setting also....

          Normally i'd agree with this, but it's more than twice the price, AND doesn't fit into my Morex Case

            I saw another post that said all these options are available, but some are not listed in the manual (haven't tested them though). There's a 10min/1hr and a 15min/2hr - not quite the 30min you're looking for but enough to get you through a quick stop.

            ABCD OFFDELAY / HARDOFF
            0000 standard PSU
            1000 5 seconds / 1 minute

            1100 5 seconds / never
            0010 30 seconds / 2 hours
            1010 30 seconds / never
            0110 30 minutes / never
            1110 3 hours / never

              hell, i'll take the 1 hour /1hr 15min one even....better than the other options, imo. I also emailed Mini-box to see if i can get an answer from them.

                Andrei from Mini-Box confirmed the existance of the

                0001 10 minutes / 1 hour
                1001 15 minutes / 2 hours
                0101 1 hour / 1 hour 15 minutes

                settings via e-mail. He also said that the source code for the unit is available for modification. I wonder what sort of work it would be to modify the code...

                  They reference using the "PicStart Plus" to program the PIC - a bargain at $199. Uh, no thanks, I think I'll just stick with what's pre-programmed! I know less than nothing about PICs though, maybe there's a better way (ie cheaper).

                    Thanks Darthtater, that is exactly what I was looking for. And you're right about the DSATX as well, great powersupply but overflows its place in the budget somewhat. I think either of these should be in the documentation,

                    1001 15 minutes / 2 hours
                    0101 1 hour / 1 hour 15 minutes

                    They seem more useful than the ones already there.

                      I jumped the gun a bit. Here's a kit that's pretty cheap if you're able to solder. They have it assembled as well, but it adds a lot to the price.

                          I think SureStop is the configuration where the M2-ATX never sends a start pulse to the mainboard. It will shut the mainboard down, but you have to start it manually.

                            what about:

                            0011
                            1011
                            0111
                            1111

                            are those jumper settings not supported, or just not documented?

                              Well, they aren't listed in the user manual, nor was i informed of those settings when i contacted the manufacturer, so i'm assuming that there isnt' any modes that are associated with those configurations.....but i'm don't know for sure. I would think that the guy that emailed me with the previous information would have told me about those too if they did anything.
