Re: TTS DECODER ,,BIT OF A SURVEY

RAF - i have them in Hornby and Bachmann diesels. Sometimes they run sweet, often they don't. The hornby 31 was a bad offender.

Re: TTS DECODER ,,BIT OF A SURVEY

More often than not I've had jerky running. I use lenz but I found that it would not reprogram the decoder. I bought a gauge master decoder doctor and that does all the programming without a problem. Once the CVS have been tweaked, they run fine

Re: Code for Arduino - flashing lights

Thanks Mike, for running your eye over the code. I desoldered the hall sensor from the board and test fitted it into the track bed to test. It is very reliable in operation and works well with the train going in one direction, but in reverse, it is evident that the effect is too long, the bursts too...

Re: Recent changes to RMWeb

Might just be the change, but i've found the mobile version a little difficult. I guess like many of these things its a matter of getting used to something that is different to how you remember it. It seems to be in transition at the moment.

Re: raspberry pi

I've been using an Arduino to operate a conveyor belt when a truck is underneath the chute. A light sensitive resistor sit on the trackbed and when the truck is above it, the reduction in light turns the conveyor belt on. I will since added a soundtrack of an operating conveyor belt that I downloade...

Re: ARDUINO PROGRAMMING, AND INTERFACING HELP

A bit more basic than some of the other designs here, but here is today's work, the hornby conveyor controlled by an arduino. The video should show a photo resistor in front of the bread board which when covered, feeds back and switches on the conveyor. It took a lot of hunting to get the code for t...

Re: Code for Arduino - flashing lights

I know where you're coming from re the copying and pasting of code, but man I've struggled with this over the last week, people pointing me towards blink without delay when that really didn't help. I really struggled to get my head about the 'currentmillis = millis' and whilst some would explain it,...

Re: Code for Arduino - flashing lights

And just to prove the now simultaneous triggering and function. I might vary some of the timing so they're not all the same :

Re: Code for Arduino - flashing lights

Many thanks both. Mike - i don't know what you drink but i owe you a pint of it. Code compiled perfectly and works a charm. I was amazed to see the complexity of it. I've really enjoyed using the arduino, but i've found the coding to be a challenge. See the video in action: https://youtu.be/HsEBgmHn...

Re: Hornby make attempt at World Domination

Lots of nice stuff, fair play to them for coming our fighting. The Scottish HST looks lovely, but on the pricey side. The mk2's in NR and ScotRail look winners.

Code for Arduino - flashing lights

I'm new to coding, so struggling to pick it up as i go along. I'm finding some of it quirky. What i wanted to do was to use a hall sensor to flash an led and mimic the arcing of a third rail. The EMU would be fitted with a magnet so that as it went over the sensor, it would be detected and flash the...
