I am expecting my first shipment of Ring Engineering's PBM-2 this week. It's Rings own version of the KeepAlive.

It has some neat features that no other such product has, like an onboard controller to keep the power level constant instead of slowly dropping the voltage as the SuperCaps drain.

They are available on PDC.CA for order now:

MSRP is $39.99 US, The price from PDC.CA is $29.99
Yes, they are a fair bit more pricey than the TCS KA products, but they are fully supported by Ring.

I don't have all the official details or pictures for the final version yet but I will post them as soon as I have them.

Beta testers have had these for awhile now. If you're a tester, please chime on in your experience with the new PBM!

Forum Management / Planned Outage on Wednesday July 25th at 9AM
« on: July 24, 2018, 10:07:36 AM »

The RPUG will be down for some time on Wednesday July 25th starting at 9AM while we move the forum to our new server.

I expect this to only take a few minutes but it could be down longer if things don't go exactly as planned.

Editing photos for use in RailPro can be a pain, especially if you're not used to working with photo editing tools.

SO... we have created an easy to use online tool for Cropping, Resizing, and Converting photos for RailPro users!

« on: March 02, 2018, 03:19:53 PM »

I was asked today by Ring Engineering to remove the standalone copies of their software from the RPUG forum as it is a copyright infringement.

This software has been removed as requested.

RailPro Discussion & Help / RPA server is currently down

FYI: The RPA cannot connect to Ring's server at this time.

Tim Ring says that the Service provider has suffered a hardware failure and is working on the issue.

Ring Engineering officially released the LM-3S-G today.

Of note is the fact that there is a sound sample to listen to on the LM-3S-G web page.
And also the same sound sample is listed on the regular LM-3S page too.
