-For a first test a new switch is created by either using the track plan editor or from the menu Tables -> Switches. The connection between a switch and ECoS is carried out by the switch address. The ECoS is working with continuous addresses (see also **[[:​addressing-en|Addressing]]**) whereas in Rocrail typically a different addressing scheme (MADA) is used: //Address// stands for the decoder number and //Port// is the number of the decoder output. On a standard decoder the ports 1 to 4 are available. The field //Address// in Rocrail therefore does not directly relate to the ECoS address! ​+For a first test a new switch is created by either using the track plan editor or from the menu Tables -> Switches.
