Factory default is 192.168.0.111 which is also used if left empty.
Default is 21105 if left to zero.
Only use this option in case locomotives are controlled by an external throttle which connects directly to the Z21/z21.
This option is needed for getting (speed, direction and function) info events from the Command Station of manually2) controlled locos to synchronize Rocrail clients.
Without this option the subscription on loco info is done individually for each loco after a speed or function command is send from Rocrail.
If this option is activated, it will be reported if a loco ID is no longer recognized by a RailCom detector.
|Disable this option, and use the static Z21 IP address, if no sensor events are coming in.|
Use this option only if the Z21 the static IP address has been assigned a hostname.
In all other cases this option should be deactivated.
Note: For Network experts only!
This option must be activated, if Booster events should be received from the the z21 controller.
This option must be activated, if RailCom detektors are connected at the LocoNet bus of the z21 controller.
Default output activation time for switches.
This value is only used in case the Switch time for a individual turnout is zero.
Note: The output of the switch will only be reset after this time in case its activated.
Switches, outputs and signals do only use the address field.

Module 1 → Address range 1-8
Module 2 → Address range 9-16
In the default setting of the z21 / Z21 there is an address offset of +4 between Multimaus and Rocrail. This means that in Rocrail the addresses 1-4 can not be used. If e.g. address 1 of the multimouse is to be used in Rocrail address 5. But there is an elegant way to eliminate this shift. To do this, connect the z21 to the computer via the z21-maintenance-tool, activate the option "DCC-switch address shift +4" resp. "DCC tournout-addressing according to RCN-213" on the "Settings" tab and then confirm with "Write". Then the addresses from 1 can also be used in Rocrail. Addressing is done exclusively according to FADA (Flat addressing).
To add the Z21 to the Power Manger:
The address is fixed to 21, Interface ID is optional.
The Z21 cannot access the LAN when connected to an 'old' Ethernet HUB.
The easiest way to get connected is to add a small Desktop Ethernet Switch between the 'old' HUB and the Z21. (Small Switches are available for less then €10.)
|"Set track power, by start of Z21, to STOP position".!|
The z21start has a restricted network interface which does not accept commands from Rocrail or other software.
To use the z21start with Rocrail an Unlock-Code (10818) or an complete z21 WLAN Package (10814) must be installed.
