[Issue] - RocRail looses comms with command station

Postby mgxtreme » 12.03.2017, 15:23

All

I have been experiencing a strange and random issue with RocRail recently.

Setup is as follows
Windows 7 x64
RocRail Build 12035 (Has happened on previous builds)
Bachmann Dynamis Ultima Command Station

The issue is after a random period of time RocRail suddenly starts to constantly print errors about loss of comms to the commandstation in the Server window. The only fix is to close RocRail and restart. The time when this happens is totally random. Any loco's who have been instructed to move continue to do so until you restart RocRail.

I have checked that their are no power saving features on the com port turned on and likewise the PC is set to never turn off in the power settings.

I have attached an issue created just after it started to error and before I restarted the app. Not sure if it will show anything,

Any suggests would be most welcome

Regards

Rob

Hi Rob,

Do you still have the trc files when the error happens, this trc file shows only that does not work.

Thanks Tom

Hi Tom

The attached is all the TRC files with today's date stamp, not sure if any will be of value.

Rob - The driver is the latest, the cable is less than 3m but will have to check the power cable suggestion when I am back at the club house on Tuesday. Nothing much has changed so I would be surprised if it is a power cable, but will check anyway.

Regards

Rob

Transformers are the main problem.

Hi Rob,

it starts with internal errors:
Code: Select all
20170312.122907.895 r9999I esureade OESUNavi 0491 Error: cmd=a error=1 position=13 [Internal error]


After a while it complains:
Code: Select all
20170312.123001.340 r9999I esureade OESUNavi 0491 Error: cmd=a error=131 position=8 [Invalid/missing parameter]


Finally:
Code: Select all
20170312.121409.115 r9999E esureade OSerial  0447 Serial[Com5] 0 of 1 read.[rc=5] tries=0
20170312.121409.146 r9999E esureade OSerial  0401 Serial[Com5] error=0x75C5189F
20170312.121409.146 r9999E esureade OSerial  0401 Serial[Com5] error=0x650E4F35


It seems that the communication is disturbed by something.

Could you have an intermittent fault in your USB cable? You will know that you have to have Dynamis system turned on and USB connected before starting Rocrail. Disconnecting USB after starting Rocrail has the effect you describe.

Did this ever get resolved? Mine has been doing the same thing for a while, also Dynamis Ultima, even after update to 12372, on Mac.

Hi 'Bramshot',

how should I resolve an internal error in a Command Station from ESU?

Sorry Rob, I hadn't realised that the prob was with Dynamis. However, I will install and try 12.449.

Thanks, Tim.

Hi Rob

So far, so good. I have run trains for longer than I would have expected between faults without any problems so far. Crossed fingers it continues!

Thanks

Tim

Update, all continues to be good after a few weeks.
