Seep solenoid

Postby emikegd » 04.12.2015, 19:45

Hi

Many thanks for help on my last issue. Unfortunately there would appear to be a second problem which I think must be one of my settings. I run a Sprog3 for locomotives and Merg canusb4 and cansol for the seep. I can hear a click from the seep when clicking on the layout switch but no movement from the seep. If I re-load JMRI there is no problem as the seep moves in each direction.

Help please

Thanks

Hi,

mean it what I understand: SEEP POINT MOTORS = underfloor drive ?
In german is it a little silly = versickerter Antrieb :wink:

Hi

Please accept my apologies, yes the seep is a twin solenoid motor for changing switches. It is mounted under the running board and is operated by the Merg cansol
It runs with a DC supply of 12V, the design contains a voltage doubler circuit to derive the 23V DC necessary for charging the CDU portion of the circuitry.

I hope this helps

Thanks

Hi Mike,

is the solenoid activation time too short?

Hi Rob

Thanks for your reply, which setting controls the solenoid activation time?

Hi Rob

I think I might have solved the problem. The single gate box in switch interface settings needed to be ticked. The help page mentioned to do this for servo's and I now presume this must also apply to solenoids.
I'll keep you updated

Many thanks

Mike
