Digitrax should have moved to TCP/IP 20 years ago. They definitely should have done it when POE became a standard in 2003.rjversluis wrote:If you have lots of existing LocoNet equipment?Richard-TX wrote:Can anyone think of any reason to keep Loconet?
LocoNet communicates serial with a speed of 16K which was OK 20 years ago. Digitrax did not upgrade their concept...
I have some Loconet stuff but I am not in love with any of it.
Rocnet and friends allows me to troubleshoot. If Loconet fails, I am always guessing what the issue may be.
Every day that goes by, Digitrax is getting further and further behind.
Rocnetnode has all the functionality and ease of installation of digitrax without the silly licensing, proprietary protocol, RJ6 wiring, limited bandwidth, etc.
Loconet is dying a slow death. As far as I am concerned, the whole licensing thing is an attempt to pump some money into a company that may be in trouble.
