Re: Rocrail Arduino CAN-bus interface, MS2, Gleisbox GFP and

Hi Bert,

thanks for the update. Don't waste time on building it. I just tried to understand, if there is a way (to prevent making work twice).


Thanks for the support!

Best regards,

Torsten

Re: Rocrail Arduino CAN-bus interface, MS2, Gleisbox GFP and

Hi Bert,

sorry for being inprecise.

Using rocrail as master for the MS2 works!

It's just the fact, that the MS2 gives me all settings per loco based on the cataloque number from Märklin, which I would like to use (if it is easy to do).

Best regards,

Torsten

Re: Rocrail Arduino CAN-bus interface, MS2, Gleisbox GFP and

Dear Bert, best wishes for 2017! As I am using the left vacation days from 2016, I worked on my model railroad again. Is there a way, to get the locos saved in the list of the MS2 (get loco from list) into rocrail. New MFX locos are taken, but I would like to get the non MFX locos transfered as well...

Re: Rocrail Arduino CAN-bus interface, MS2, Gleisbox GFP and

Good morning Bert, I use the arduino-1.6.6-windows.exe from the arduino-site, just installed, nothing changed. The issue with the e UDP_TX_PACKET_MAX_SIZE could be by exchanged libs with the new version. But I didn't change the warning settings, just plain install. After my fixes described, the para...

Re: Rocrail Arduino CAN-bus interface, MS2, Gleisbox GFP and

Hi Bert, seems to be line 382: for (int i = 0; i < 8; i++) { message.data[i] = packetRxBuffer[i + 5]; } and line 1208 for (unsigned int i = 0; i < 13; i++) { message.data[i] = packetRxBuffer[i + 5]; } Defined (and filled): byte packetRxBuffer[13]; (which doesn't match), but data is defined byte data...

Re: Rocrail Arduino CAN-bus interface, MS2, Gleisbox GFP and

Hi Bert, will try. Do you get on this and last V25 the errors, too, if compiling unter 1.6.6? \\ads.dlh.de\Lhuser$\LPA\FRA11C_18\Homes\U070420\Documents\Arduino\CAN_UDP_gwV25a\CAN_UDP_gwV25a.ino:59:0: warning: "UDP_TX_PACKET_MAX_SIZE" redefined [enabled by default] #define UDP_TX_PACKET_MAX_SIZE 13 ...

Re: Rocrail Arduino CAN-bus interface, MS2, Gleisbox GFP and

Good morning Bert, I would like to raise a different issue. Using rocrail, CAN_UDP_gwV20a and MS2, Rocrail is configured via LAN, but from the setting like screenshot in your post "von woodyboy » 16.07.2014, 21:23." I observe the following issue on a minimal set: 1) Powering MS2, connect CAN_UDP to ...

Re: Add booster to Gleisbox, supporting Boosterlink and CAN

Hello, as update from my side. Welli stated, that booster link works. I found meanwhile a link: http://www.ldt-infocenter.com/dokuwiki/_media/de/anschlussbeispiele/page_1594.pdf showing MS2 stearing mainly the turnouts, while a LDT DB4 booster drives the track, taking the MS2 output as input and usi...

Re: Add booster to Gleisbox, supporting Boosterlink and CAN

Hi Bert,

thanks for the hint (especially about the voltage). The turnout engine still has a issue, but it sounds much stronger on switching and without the surounding plastic/metall reliable switches!

Best regards,

Torsten

Re: Add booster to Gleisbox, supporting Boosterlink and CAN

Hello, I used the time for further tests. As expected, the basic issue is the turnout engine for the K-track. Some moved lighter than others. All are OK with direct connection to 16V (classic analog mode) and work quite well with decoders supported by external voltage. MS2 with only one turnout/deco...

Re: Add booster to Gleisbox, supporting Boosterlink and CAN

Dear Bert, thank you very much for your valuable input. Sorry for confusing you (and possible others): Perhaps starting with clarifying the requirements: 1) I would like to control the turnouts and locos solely via the MobileStation2 hand controls. This will enable my children to play 2) I would lik...

Re: Add booster to Gleisbox, supporting Boosterlink and CAN

Hi Welli and Bert, to be honest, it took me some time to recover from your postings and the workload contributed in addition. Nevertheless, thanks for your postings! It didn't really agree to 'Thanks for reporting, but this is expected behaviour. ' My expectation has been, that the Boosterlink would...

Re: Add booster to Gleisbox, supporting Boosterlink and CAN

Hi Bert, thanks for the hint. I face the issue, even so no CAN is connected, just using the hand control to switch one turnout. My first thought has been to apply external power to the turnout decoders, but stopped getting aware of the H-bridge inside the GFP. Had some guests last week staying, so w...

Re: Add booster to Gleisbox, supporting Boosterlink and CAN

Hello Bert, I use the normal Märklin transformator delivered with the MS2, labeled with 36 VA . For the decoders, I have 4 self made with 145027 (build 2004 after http://www.heise.de/ct/Redaktion/cm/buch/digit_5.html#WD4), one LDT S-DEC-4-MM , 4 TAMS WD-1, 2 TAMS WD-34. For the tests, all but one de...
