    Hello,
    I'm thinking about getting a T1000 3 motion sim and wanted to know IF and HOW I can add 2 additional scn6 actuators not bought from PROSIMU and have them work with the system. I have looked, and believe I can get the needed actuators much cheeper if I don't buy them from the T1000 site. I could be wrong and please let me know if I am but wanted to know what else would be needed to tie 2 additional actuators into the 3 Motion system giving me a 5 motion system in the end, possibly saving money. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Unless you are logged in to prosimu's webshop their prices will include european VAT.

    If you buy a T100 3 motion, the upper rig configuration may be a T shape with 2 vertical actuators and 1 horizontal actuator.

    To convert to a 5 motion rig the base and upper part needs to become an shape, so the conversion kit would include additional square tube frame, bolts, washers, nyloc nuts, steel cups, vibration foam and feet. (it is possible the newer T1000 3 motion is already an shape)

    The frex actuators photo shows only these parts

    whereas the Prosimu actuators also come with a PSU, power box and USB RS-485 interface.

    On Frex Gp web site you can find also the other component, cable kit, usb to rs485 converter and also the power supply module
    On prosimu web you can by the kit with the two scn6 actuators 1590 euro and in this kit you have every cable/adapter usb and power module
    You need to compare the price. You remember also the shipping and the tax

    If your goal is to have a T1000 5 Motion : please use PRS 200 actuators, this is the best solution. If you use SCn6 040, 060 it won't work : too much weight, it will be very slow or will be directly going into protection.

    Thanks Patrick ProSimu
