Re: CAN-GC3 / Rocrail Can not read Cv's [✔]

Hi Rob, I checked the voltage on the programming track, it was 18v AC. The 12v supply was also at 18v. Still rocrail would not talk to the decoders. However what this did do was make me question the instructions given with the CAN-GC3. :idea: The instructions say: Programming rail power switch up = ...

Re: CAN-GC3 / Rocrail Can not read Cv's [✔]

Thanks for your reply Rob,

I will remove the other posts.
Apologizes, I was just trying to get some info and was unsure if the post was in the wrong subject due to the lack of replies.

Im sure the voltage has been set to 18v but I will check.

Many thanks

Probleme mit Read/Write CV es mit Rocrail und CAN-GC3 [✔]

Hallo. Bitte verzeihen Sie mir mein schlechtes Deutsch. Ich benutze einen Übersetzer. Es scheint mehr Aktivität auf dem deutschen Forum zu geben, in der Hoffnung auf eine Antwort. Ich habe ein funktionierendes CBUS-System mit CAN-GC3. Mit Rocrail und einem CAN-Gc5 kann ich die Loks auf der Programmi...

Re: CAN and Node addressing for GCA modules [✔]

@ Herman. Many thanks Herman. I did see it many times but did not understand the importance of EVENTS. @ Carlos Many thanks Carlos for your invaluable help. The terminology of CAN id, Bus, Node Nr, address, port, Event becomes unclear when used with different setup tabs. I dont usually have problems...

Re: CAN and Node addressing for GCA modules [✔]

Hi Carlo, Many thanks for responding to my question. I think i have read the rocrail manual and GC2 hardware manual to many times but still have issues. I eventually figured out how to set up the GC2 using the pushbutton. I now have 2 Gc2's set up with the following. GC2#2 Set for Long Events with C...

Re: CAN and Node addressing for GCA modules [✔]

Many thanks for both of your replies. I still have addressing problems. I have a single cangc2 with a CAN ID of 2. I have a sensor input on the 12th input. (PORT 12) Rocrail sees this input as a track sensor. The sensor interface is set to BUS =0, ADDRESS =12. According to cangc manual all cangc add...

Does every module have the same CAN ID and different node numbers or different CAN Id for each node and same ...

Re: GC1e connection problems

Thanks Rob, I sorted out the issue by reading the rocrail manual. The GC1e instruction assume that you have previously set up Rocrail with a controller which isn't listed. Any way here's how I did it. Maybe it can help others. 1. Power up new Gc1e without network cables and check all voltages. 2. Ch...

GC1e connection problems

Hi everyone, Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. I have built the GC1e and powered up. All ok. Set a win 7 PC to IP 192.168.0.1 Connected a patch cable to the GC1e. The link lights and ether activity lights flash. From command prompt I can ping the GC1e on 192.168.0.200 I've follo...
