- USB Port mapping (Optional)
|”mergCBUS is really an 'open source' version of LocoNet but is much faster and uses CAN which is very reliable.”|
The CANID used for the CANUSB and CANRS.
The connected CAN nterface:
|TCP/IP||10/100 MBPS||CAN-GC1e||GCA Peter Giling||Preferred.|
|USB||500 KBPS||CANUSB||MERG||Preferred by MERG. The 12V version can be used in combination with the CAN-GCA line.|
|Serial||230400||CAN-GC1||GCA Peter Giling||Uses binary responses to improve through put. (Not MERG compatible.)|
|Serial||115200||CANRS||MERG||Deprecated; It is not fast enough to keep up with CBUS at full speed!|
The serial device used for the CAN interface.
|CAN-GC1, CANRS||COM1…COM4||/dev/ttyS0…/dev/ttySn||An USB-RS232 converter can also be used. (Tested)|
The hostname and port for the CAN-GC1e interface.
Use the short version of the accessory events; Event number only. (Recommended)
The long events are based on node number and event number.
Send fast clock packets on the CBUS.
It is recommended to set this enabled in case of using a TCP/IP connection to prevent idle timeout disconnection.
Activates the command acknowledgment handshake.
A next command can only be send if the interface did acknowledged the previous command.
This handshake prevents loss of commands due buffer overflow. (10/100MBit → 125kBit)
Other manufacturers, like Lenz, are also using such a handshake on there Ethernet interfaces.
|Only the CAN-GC1e version 1.c is capable of handling this acknowledgment when this option is activated in the firmware.|
Use the OPC_DFON/OPC_DFOF instead of OPC_DFUN. (Not implemented by CANCMD.)
Sends every second an event# 4712 OPC_ACON/OPC_ACOF on the bus to be able to check for hardware/cable problems.
The LEDs on the modules should flash every second.
A CAN-GC2 can be programmed on this event# to be able to add a LED mounted on the dashboard.
“Start of Day” address for query all input states.
This must be programmed as event in all input nodes which should report.
CS timeout for updating DCC mobile decoders.
If a loco becomes idle before this time out a keep alive command is send to the CS.
The hardware purgetime is 20 seconds, so this value should be set to less then 20 to assure the slot is not purged during automatic runs!
Deprecated: No longer maintained.
Time in ms between sending bootloader lines to a node.
mergCBUS addressing is FLAT, only the bus and address values are used; Port values are used in case the address value is zero.
|-||CAN ID||0…127|| Unique number within a CAN segment to be used in the CAN transport layer.
This is the low part of the CAN Message Identifier without priority bits.
|Bus||Node number||0…65535||Used for long events and programming. This must be set unique for all modules.|
|Port|| Event number in case Address is zero.|
This is discouraged.
|0…65535||Must be zero for correct mapping if the address field is used.|
|Gate||Added to the address of output objects.||0,1||This is needed for signal pattern support.|
