For most customers, by telling us what gimbal you have purchased, we will pre-configure your Alpha Link S.Bus for you. However, if you are having difficulty, you can follow these steps to set up your Alpha Wheels and Alpha Link for your gimbal.
The Alpha Link S.Bus XR is a wireless device, and just like all wireless devices, it can experience wireless interference.
We encourage you to thoroughly read our Wireless Best Practices Guide. It will give you loads of helpful tips to help you avoid ever having to experience a bad take because of wireless interference.
CONNECT THE ALPHA LINK RECEIVER TO THE RONIN 2
Using the supplied 1A Tools cable, connect the Alpha Link Receiver via the OUTPUT connector to the D.BUS port on the Ronin via DJI's S.Bus adapter cable.
If you cannot find an S.Bus adapter cable, contact DJI.
SETUP RONIN 2
You will need to change a few settings in your Ronin 2. Open the following PDF to view the settings.
Pay specific attention to NECESSARY settings vs SUGGESTED settings. These settings are important to understand and use properly based on your needs and camera payload.
The Alpha Link Transmitter and Receiver both have indicator LED to give you status info.
On the Transmitter, if the LINK light is on, that means it has established connection and recently received confirmation that data has reached the Receiver.
On the Receiver, a solid STATUS light indicates that it is on, and is receiving wheel data.
On the Receiver, a fast blinking STATUS indicates that while it is receiving data, data is being lost. This could be due to poor signal strength or too high of signal strength. The transmitter can overwhelm the receiver if too close.
On the Receiver, a slow blinking STATUS indicates that it has lost connection and is attempting to re-connect.
When your Alpha Link and Gimbal are setup properly according the instructions above, the gear ratios will have a range of speeds that line up with conventional Arri gear heads with some additional speeds.
