S88 Events

Postby Evers420 » 07.02.2012, 22:11

Hello,

How often does RocRail check for S88 events per second?
Can this value be influenced / modified?

Very short S88 pulses (e.g buttons) are shown on the
S88 logging of my digital control, but do not appear
in the Rocrail logging. Therefore the question.

Regards,

Robert

Every 250 ms.
If you want reliable sensor reports you must forget s88 and use an event based system Like LocoNet or CBUS.

Hi Rob,

I know you're no friend of the S88 bus. 250 ms is too short because Roberts mdrrc Control Station sends all events directly, because there are no internal buffers. (not enough RAM). With ddx (100ms), there are no problems with S88 bus. Is it possible to change something?

Best regards
