[Solved]control of Signal Icons

Post by ronp849 » 22.12.2016, 04:47

Hi All

I am trying to set up a Rocrail layout as a Mimic Panel for the latest club layout. I am a relative newbie to Rocrail but I have so far been able to link my Homebrew CS to Rocrail via a serial link running Xpressnet protocol. My CS has 16 logic inputs from the layout pointmotors to drive the Rocrail point icons - this is working but I am struggling to get the signals to change in the same way. Can the signal icons be controlled directly like the point icons?

Once I can control the signal icons, I will need to work out where the Signal logic can be implemented - in Rocrail or in the CS.

Basic details of my CS so far are:

16 Logic inputs
16 servo outputs
16 LED drives
DCC drive system to be added later.

All controlled with an Atmel AtMega88 microcontroller.


Many thanks

Ron

I have managed to get it working after a little more work with Actions.

Nice work! Can you tell us a bit more about your homebrew CS?
