ROCRAIL



The decoders have to be initiated in Rocrail. Symbols for turnout, sensor and push button have to be created in the layout. The single “circle” as symbol for the occupation sensor of a turnout might work quit well. Names for them are allocated by the user. Than information has to be inserted into configuration tables.

Turnout decoder


Each decoder is allocated a unique free IP-address out of the range 192.168.xxx.2 - 192.168.xxx.250. The last triplet is the Rocrail "Bus" number. Occupation of the turnout is reported with a sensor having the same Bus and Address as the turnout the sensor belongs to.

Insert triplet of IP-address into field "Bus"

Insert the number of the turnout (1 or 2) into field "Address"

Select “Single Gate”.

For the field “Type” select “Output”.

e.g. decoder 5 turnout 2 is inserted as Bus 5 Address 2

“Sensor turnout” select the sensor name for this turnout.

“Sensor straight” select the sensor name for this turnout.

Select“Inverted”.

“Occupancy” select the sensor name for this turnout



tosensor.jpgTable: Sensor – tab: Interface.

Insert triplet of IP-address into field "Bus"

Insert the number of the turnout (1 or 2) into field "Address"

e.g. (sensor for decoder 5 turnout 2 is inserted as Bus 5 Address 2)



Sensor decoder


Each decoder has eight digital and one analogue sensor. Each decoder is allocated a unique free IP-address out of the range 192.168.xxx.2 - 192.168.xxx.250, skipping 192.168.xxx.9. The last triplet is the Rocrail "Bus" number. The sensors report using "Address" numbers 1 .. 9.
The analogue sensor is made available on the PCB. The use is up to the user to create.

Table: Sensor – tab: Interface.

Insert the last part of the IP- address into field "Bus".

Insert the port number of the sensor into field "Address".

e.g. (192.168.1.161 sensor 6 is inserted as Bus 161 Address 6)



Switch decoder


Each decoder is allocated a unique free IP-address out of the range 192.168.xxx.2 – 192.168.xxx.250, skipping 192.168.xxx.9. The last triplet is the Rocrail "Bus" number. The outputs are switched using "Address" numbers 1 .. 8.

Table: Switches – tab: Interface.

Insert the last part of the IP-address into field "Bus".

Insert the port number of the output into field "Address".

e.g. (192.168.0.31 port 5 is inserted as Bus 31 Address 5)
