Light Signal Addressing with LZV100

Post by TomJF » 22.01.2018, 14:45

Hi all
I have built some SBB Signal L masts (0 scale) and now I am working on a ATtiny85 based Decoder for them.
I use a Lenz LZV100 central with an additional Lenz booster.
Now my question:
Before I start working on the software I would like to know what would be the best/correct way to define/address such a signal in Rocrail (I need 3 aspects: Red, Green, and Yellow+Green)?
Thanks for you inputs and best regards
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

Xpressnet does not support the DCC signal/aspect command so you only have a few choices.

- every LED has its own address (standard signal addressing)
- the decoder can handle linear addressing: addr1=aspect1 ... addrn=aspectn
- the decoder can handle patterns.
- the decoder can handle binary

Its up to you. ;)

But some processing types will not work with other software then Rocrail.
The linear addressing is introduced for the Italian Fremo Club to be able to address 15 aspects or more.

So, if you could freely choose, you would take "standard"?
I this case, while in programming mode, I coud take the first address the decoder sees modulo 4, and use this as the base address for the signal.
Is that what you would recommend?
Best regards
Thomas

Hi,

I did/do not recommend anything, just listed up the possibilities.
Its your choice.
