New Hardware Design Changes & Improvements

The CronusMAX PLUS is the third generation in the range that surpasses all of it’s predecessors in terms of design and quality, making it more reliable and electronically sound than ever before.

The CronusMAX PLUS has been engineered to VALOR standards which are the highest electronic design specifications in the industry.  Everything is scrutinized including controlled differential, controlled impedance,  differential arrangement of resistors, shunt term thickness and routing of the VCC and GND traces to maximize current flow and minimize signal loss and interference (not to mention there must be separate planes for BOTH GND and VCC – we’ve seen many faulty PCB layouts where they only have one or two GND planes and no dedicated VCC plane – this is a massive fault in design), placement of the caps on the USB lines, the amount of vias including placement, spacing and thickness, and last but not least critical by-pass caps that should match the data-sheet of each IC. All of these issues have to be considered and are absolutely crucial when designing a PCB. If none of these are taken into account then the design is flawed and will fail any VALOR test. In short, If it passes VALOR, it means it’s perfect. Both CronusMAX (V2 2014) & CronusMAX PLUS (V3 2015) passed every VALOR test.

Many problems were solved with the CronusMAX (V2 2014) & CronusMAX PLUS (V3 2015) hardware design and the difference in performance compared to its predecessors far exceeded our expectations. Heat dissipation was drastically lowered and the amount of current drawn from a controller was dramatically decreased. We are confident that any competitor products that show even a remote similarity to the old predecessors line of products would show similar numbers to the non-VALOR figures in the results below.

The USB Input socket has also been corrected (previous models had the socket inverted so that your USB devices were being plugged in upside down), and the outer bracket was also reinforced to protect against any accidental damage (think of a child tripping over a wired controller cable whilst connected to the CronusMAX, the design of its predecessors could sometimes cause the socket to break loose giving an E1 error – that issue has now been resolved with a much stronger bond between USB socket and PCB).

The plastic shell was completely redesigned using higher quality production molding and techniques so that it was made not only mechanically correct for PS4 operation, but also more aesthetically pleasing and far more durable against everyday wear and tear.

    10 / 10 here !

    If you own a ps3 and prefer an xbox controller, or even use a keyboard and mouse, this is a must to remap your keyboard to a controller. Go buy it now you won't be disappointed !

    Amazing Macro combos

    tested Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. I was able to perform normal & FADC combos with some characters like Ryu and Ken with a single click. Amazing.

    Beats all rapidfire mods

    I've tried the Intensafire, Godfather even the new Wolf controller. The ControllerMAX beats them hands down and no wires or soldering too. 5 Stars!

    What Disability?

    I would like to thank you for making the CronusMax. I have this problem hitting L3 and R3, and today that problem was fixed. I love the remap feature on the Cronus max. You made my life easier.
