Technical Information

The full user manual can be found here

All CTRLDock Firmware can be found on the Heber Github - Heber-co-uk (Heber Ltd) (

The CTRLDock Classic SE features two DE9 and two DE15(Neo Geo) ports to support a wide range of classic devices (see compatibility list below), and uses a rotary knob as the selection method.

Analogue measurements are dependent on the devices used, as standard some filtering is applied for the paddles, depending on the sensitivity paddles will naturally have higher latency as appropriate for the devices and in line with the original experience.

Each port is equipped with a 100mA resettable fuse on the 5V connection and resistors on the other signal lines to protect the CTRLDock Classic SE and control system in the event of a short circuit.
