Routes are from left to right.
0enter, 1enter and 2enter are wheel counter sensor types.
The previous block will be set free at the "enter" event if:
1. Sensors: set-up as "wheel counter", in the free@enter-block and in the previous block. Sensor: Select type "6"
2. Loco and Block: free@enter is active
3. Train: (at least) Loco and (typically) last-car-in-train are equipped with a magnet.
For suitable equipment see: Wheel counting

Blocks will reset its own wheel counter at the IN event.
Rocview supplies a popup menu item to reset the event manually.
The enter sensor is the only one suited for being a wheel counter and must be set to the Wheel counter (Type 6).
In a Block with two sensors (enter/in), with their function switched according to the direction of block use, both sensors can be configured as wheel counter to enable wheel counting in both directions. The wheel counting takes only place with the sensor that is defined in the active route for the enter event.
If the connected CS supports sensor simulation it will increase the wheel count by one every time its state gets high.
Delays for OFF messages must be deactivated in the modules of the Feedback systems and in Sensor objects so that axes or magnets can be reliably detected even when the distance is short.
