what are the meaning of code and Manufacturer ID

Post by peter_moulin » 02.12.2017, 10:59

Hi,

In the properties of loco, the General tab indicate a code and a manufacturer ID.
The second topic is not explain in the wiki.
The explanation for the first one are not clear.

My question is about the decoder ID, called sometimes UID, which is necessary in MFX/M4 or Railcomplus protocol.
A ESU decoder uses the same UID for both protocol.
It is a 32 bits value, unique for a decoder.

Is it one of the above (a code and a manufacturer ID) or is it something else not included in the loco properties.

Regards,

Hi Peter,

A mfx decoder id, the so called 32 bit UID, is decimal represented in the code field on the general tab.
