RPC

Introduction

The MERG RPC system is commonly used as I/O, 32 byte output and 32 byte input.
The refresh between the RPC system and Rocrail is periodically done, approximately 10 times per second.
The 32 output bytes are saved on shutdown and restored at startup.

Supported Messages

  • Type 0: All Bytes Out, All Bytes In.


Setup

Select the RPIC Controller in Rocrail.
Give the controller a unique Interface ID, and select the communication port.
All other settings are not of interest; The line settings are fix. (9600 Baud, 8 bits, no parity)
Restart Rocrail to make this newly added library active.


Addressing

Outputs, switches and sensors are Flat addressed, the port and gate fields are not evaluated.
Only Single Gate switch motors are supported.
Address range is 1…256, mapped to 0…255, for both outputs and inputs.
Use the Sensor Monitor for checking the sensor addresses.
