KB805 DS64 - Setting Board ID for Additional DS64s

When using more than one DS64 in a DCC environment, you must assign a Board ID to each additional DS64 so that each one has a unique Board ID.You will need to set the DS64's board ID if you are planning to use the DS64's 8 inputs with a computer, system throttle, or other smart device on your layout that needs to know when a turnout has been manually thrown or closed via a particular DS64.You can use the 8 inputs on the DS64 to control the operation of the 4 outputs that control your turnouts.  For example, you can ...

KB806 DS64 - Stationary Address Programming

If you have more than four turnouts, you will need to program the addresses.The DS64 has 4 Output pairs labeled 1R & 1G, 2R & 2G, 3R & 3G, and 4R & 4G.  The DS64 is shipped from the factory with these outputs programmed as Switch Addresses 01, 02, 03, and 04 respectively. You can set the Switch Address of each of these four Outputs to any value from 01 - 2048.NOTE:  During this procedure the DS64 must be connected to an active LocoNet with an active command station.1. On the DS64’s control panel, press and hold the ID button ...

KB550 DS54 - Reset to Factory Default Values

Q:  How do I reset the DS54 CV's to factory default values? A:  The DS54's CVs must be manually reconfigured to set the DS54 to factory default values. The factory default values for the DS54's CVs are: CV01 = 1All other programmable CVs = 0

KB582 DS64 Programming Q & A

  Q: Can I assume that any of the 3 powering options for the DS64 are acceptable for OpSw changes? A:  Yes you can power the DS64 using any of the 3 options.  The DS64 is strictly looking for power, and doesn't need the DCC signal from the track to set op-switches. Q: If I have only 3 turnouts on a DS64, to complete the 4 point programming I have been inputting a bogus turnout number. Is that correct? A:  Yes, that is correct. Q: When setting OpSw 1, do I have to be connected to track power or can I power ...

KB344 PM42 - Programming

On Page 9 of the instructions (under 5.0 Op Sw Set Up) I am to connect my DT400 throttle to my powered PM42 . . . 1. Does “powered” mean having the PS-14 power supply to the PM42 connected and energized? Yes. We took another look at the documentation and it means that the PM42 should be operating with its own power supply. What you are doing is using the DT400 to program the internal controls of the PM42; to do so would require that the PM42 be in its operating state, thus the power supply. The DT400 is merely ...

KB341 Bachmann DCC Turnouts

To program Bachmann's E-Z Command® Decoder-Equipped DCC Turnouts follow these steps: 1. Connect the turnout (or wye or crossover) to a powered section of track (Rail A & B)2. Verify Track Power is on.3. Press and hold the programming button of the E-Z Command® turnout/wye/crossover until switch toggles twice (release programming button).  The turnout is now in programming mode. 5. Press Switch button on the Throttle. 6. Select the desired address on the Throttle (1-100 for this device). 7. Press OPTN button if using a DT40x series Throttle or the CV-WR key then the EXIT key on a DCS50/51.  The ...

KB246 DS64 - Multiple Output Pulses

Why does the DS64 generate multiple output pulses for a single command? I get between 2 and 5 pulses over a period of about 2 seconds. Option Switch 01 determines the type of turnouts that you can operate, static or pulse. The Factory default is for "Pulse". Option Switches 02, 03, 04, and 05 set the pulse length. OpSw 02 = Closed the pulse width is 200ms (milliseconds). OpSw 03 = Closed, the pulse width is 400ms. OpSw 04 = Closed, the pulse width is 800ms. OpSw 05 = Closed, the pulse width is 1600ms. All, or any combination of ...

KB88 DS64 Option Switches - Overview

The DS64 is a powerful stationary decoder that can be used to control different devices on your railroad. It can be used on both command control and analog model railroads. The DS64 is configured by the settings of different Option Switches (OpSw's), listed below: OpSw01 - Solenoid or slow motion devices OpSw02 - Pulse Timeout, 200ms OpSw03 - Pulse Timeout, 400ms OpSw04 - Pulse Timeout, 800ms OpSw05 - Pulse Timeout, 1600ms OpSw06 - Output Auto Power Up OpSw07 - Factory-default Reset OpSw08 - Regular/Extended Startup Delay OPSw09 - Timeout Option OpSw10 - Throttle/Computer Option OpSw12 - Sensor Input Option OpSw13 ...

KB605 DS52 Stationary Decoder Configuration and Programming Jumpers

There are two jumpers on the DS52 stationary decoder board. To properly use your DS52 you must be sure these jumpers are in the correct position. The configuration jumper sets whether your DS52 operates slow motion or solenoid type turnout machines. When the jumper is open it will run solenoid turnout machines. When it is closed it will operate slow motion turnout machines. The programming jumper determines whether the DS52 is in programming mode or not. To program the addresses for the DS52 the program jumper must be closed. For normal operation, it must be open.
