Setting up Seagull #MAP2 could not be easier! Simply select the channel that the device is plugged into and trim the LOW/HIGH values for that channel, until desired modes are met – refer to the table below:

smap2_input_values_v2

Example with Seagull #MAP2 configured to CH7 on a Taranis X9D transmitter:

smap2_taranis

Connect the servo cable by following the polarity markings on Seagull MAP2 and connect the other end of servo cable to your Receiver / Flight Controller, with the correct polarity.
(“Otherwise the magic smoke escapes!! – don’t worry, it’s protected against reversed connection”)

Please refer to the manual of your specific R/C radio system or Flight Controller to find out more about how to connect accessories and what ports to utilize.

NOTE: for Pixhawk users – #MAP2 is powered by Pixhawks power rail ( the middle pin + ).  Ensure that the rail is powered by BEC or other power source ranging from 3.5-5.5 volts  in order for Seagull #MAP2 to function properly.

Voltage: 3.5 – 5.5 volts  ( 5 volts recommended – do NOT exceed 5.5 volts !! )
Current: 21.75mA max ( when STATE LED is Solid ON – varies when Fading )
Input signal: Standard R/C PWM between 1000 – 2000μS

If you wish to trigger Seagull #MAP2 from a Flight Controller, setting it up in Mission Planner is also straight forward. Start Mission Planner and follow the steps below.

Click on INITIAL SETUP >> OPTIONAL HARDWARE >> CAMERA GIMBAL

“SHUTTER” – in the drop down list, chose the channel that Seagull #MAP2 is connected to.

“PUSHED” – Set the “Value” for the desired trigger mode (AF-T or IS-T see table below)

mp_states

“NOT PUSHED” – Set the value “1500” ( Neutral state – see table above )

“DURATION” – Set the value “1” for AF-T mode or “10” for IS-T mode

(values may vary depending on how long it takes for your specific camera model and lens configuration to lock focus. Try increasing or decreasing the values to find the sweet spot where the camera can keep up with the duration time that the shutter is held pushed/triggered for)

 

Example from Mission Planner:

smap2_mp

To determine what state Seagull #MAP2 is currently in – simply read the output of the “STATE LED” and match it with the “Action” in the table below.

 

smap2_stateled

The following table shows the STATE LED readout for the different states / modes.
