MERG CBUS setup

MERG CBUS setup

Postby dsbase » 09.11.2017, 13:23

Hi All,

I am in the process of configuring a MERG CBUS setup.
I have USB interface (CANUSB4), a node (CANACC8) as output configured as 100 via the MERG FLIM and an input node (CANACE8C) configured as 101.
I have set them up in MERG FLIM and they talk to each other.
I have set the USB up in Rocrail with an interface ID of cbus-1, controller type cbus, sub library type serial, device on the relevant com port (com5) and port 0.
I created 4 sensors in Rocrail and attempting to switch them via the cbus module. The messages are appearing in the controller output window.
I have setup the CBUS node number for the input node as number 101 via Programming -> Node. But when I run the query inside the Index tab, it does not find anything.

Please can someone help direct me to what I am doing wrong.

Hi,

it seems that your CBus interface does not support hardware handshake:
Code: Select all
20171109.115927.051 r9999W cbwriter OCBUS    0051 CTS not ready

Just turn of the CTS and restart Rocrail.
Best Regards, Rob.
