[solved]Switch position recognition on startup

Postby luisma2494 » 25.07.2015, 21:13

Hi guys!

Someone knows what I have to do to have the same representation at RocRail and in Ecos at the startup?
When I start the RocRail some switches differs with the ones shown in Ecos :| , the right ones are the positions that Ecos displayed.

Hi Luisma,

I never had that problem.
How do you terminate the ECoS, normal power down (hold stop button until it flashes) or do you pull the plug?
How do you terminate Rocrail, normal (Ctrl D) or turn of the computer?

Hi Tom,

I terminate RocRail by closing the RocView window (with the X), then appears a message asking for shutdown too the RocRail server and finally I have configured the server to shutdown the Ecos when server is shutdown.

Tomorrow I will try to close RocView with Ctrl+D and see what happens

Thanks :thumb_up:

That should work too!

When you run in Automode how do you stop the system? Do you turn Automode off and let the trains finish until the next block? And then hit the X.
I have the feeling some switch commands are not received by the ECoS. You might want to hang your plan, ini and trc (probably at shutdown) files in the forum.
Click on Help -> Issues, that will gather all the files.

Hi Tom,

I have found the problem and it's an error for my part. :(
Normally I work on RR on my personal laptop, but the computer that controls the circuit is a different one, when I finish programming the RR I copy it to the circuit computer. What happens it's that I played with the switches at laptop and then don't mach with the positions shown by Ecos :roll: :mrgreen:

Thank you for your worry

P.D: I didn't know the feature "Issues" it's very labor saving :thumb_up:
