Don't make any changes now. Wait until this evening. It is far too late to be thinking about stuff like this.

Just as a FYI, git clone https://github.com/rocrail/Rocrail.git Rocrail is a slow process that borders on painful.

Just clone once; git pull afterwards.

I take that back. It is painful.

Rob,

It sort of works.

It keeps alternating between ON and OFF.

To duplicate start Rocrail, configure rocnetnode, stop rocnetnode and restart rocnetnode.

OK, I fixed that.
Just git pull and make server
You must update rocrail and rocnetnode

can you provide a rocrail.*.trc?
The value of the ADC is also reported as load. (And as sensor tooltip in Rocview)

The load is reporting 0 in the tooltip

You must use a higher revision.

I will wait until the next windows build of rocrail. So far it looks wonderful!

Hi Richard,

Peter will also evaluate your approach with ADC converters.
If he is convinced of usability he will probably use a PIC with 8 analog inputs and 8 digital outputs to create a solution for GCA50, CAN-GC2 and GCA-Pi02.
The measured analog value is not really a usable parameter so in this case it will be lost.
But if the tests work out well you can be proud of your self triggering this DIY project.

I am hoping that the TTL version will work well and that it can be used with the MCP23017.
