Transponding can be ordered to the same category as Lissy and RailCom but uses another technique.
With the basic transponding decoders the following info is received by Rocrail:
More advanced transponding decoders can supply also:
To avoid conflicts with the current sense addressing bus 2 is used for the transponder receivers.
So if the board address is set to 1 the first transponder receiver will report in Rocrail with address 2-1, and the first sensor with address 0-1. (bus-address)
The BDL168 transponder addresses increment by 2, not 1. This means with board address 2 that Zone A is 1, Zone B is 3, etc. See this table:
|Board 1 RX's|
|OPSW9||Closed (No message sent if un-powered)|
|OPSW36||Closed (Ignore GPON)|
|OPSW37||Closed (Long delay for sensors)|
|OPSW38||Closed (Extra long delay for sensors)|
|OPSW39||Closed (Verbose mode enabled)|
|OPSW42||Closed (Respond also to first interrogate command)|
|OPSW43||Thrown (Filter for transponding enabled)|
|OPSW44||Closed (Extra filter for transponding)|
|OPSW45||Closed (Don't send transponding messages at GPOFF)|
