Tracks

Representation

The turntable has 48 steps of 7.5°. The connected tracks are numbered counter-clockwise from 0 to 47.
The track 0 is the 0° of the first quadrant. This is the representation of the turntable in Rocvew, if the orientation is set on “West” (Standard).

Track number

The wanted track number to define which must range between 0 and 47.
The track number represents the position of the bridge inside the tt symbol when the requested position is reached, without any other impact.
It is recommended to draw the tracks to be connected to the tt first and then align the bridge position by the track number to fit to the connected track best.

Decoder Track number

:!: If the turntable decoder type does not support 48 positions it must be mapped using the Decoder track number.

Example

Assuming a turntable decoder type with 24 tracks equally arranged:

Track Decoder track
0 1
2 2
4 3
6 4
44 23
46 24

Decoder Opposite Track

An optional track for the 180° turn option.(For multiport type only.)
Leave at -1 if not needed. (Or equals to the Track number.)

Note: This information is required if also wanted to travel to / from the minus side of the bridge track (“green”) from / to the connected track
and the therefore necessary routes are to be generated by the Track block management.

Grid connection

Connect the track to a specific coordinate.
The XY coordinate units are 0.5 grids.
The general option Grid connection must be enabled.
In this example 4 tracks have a grid connection defined: (15, 17, 19, 21)

User example


BlockID

Block ID used for generating routes between bridge and tracks in case the manager is activated.

Description

Free text for display only.

Position sensor

Sensors should be placed at every connected track to detect the bridge position.
It is valid when a sensors is high and will be shown as detected in the track plan.
Check the turntable type for details.

Bridge polarization

Set the polarization of the bridge for entering this track.

Visible

Show this track. Disable if it is only for the 180° turn option without any real tracks connected.
