Here's one way to do it: https://rpug.pdc.ca/index.php/topic,1187.msg9053.html#msg9053.

If you don't like the headphone jack and socket there's probably other plugs and sockets that'll do the same thing, ie if you don't have an on/off switch as shown you need a plug and socket that interrupts the path so the charger can charge just the battery without powering the LM.

0.68Ah doesn't sound like you'll get a lot of run time. A couple of hours maybe?

RailPro Discussion & Help / Deadrail battery schematic and connector/switch options?
« Last post by Wyantj on April 18, 2021, 08:55:00 AM »
I'm considering installing Railpro/deadrail on my 2 Rail O Scale layout.

The battery that I'm considering is TRAIN-16 LI-ION 14.8V / .68Ah (https://www.mtobattery.com/products/train-16-li-ion-14-8v-68ah). It comes with a 20AWG JST SM connector.

Does anyone have a schematic for wiring in a switch and jack for recharging the battery?  Any part recommendations for the switch and jacks/connectors?

Thanks

2 days ago I sent Ring an email about some other issues and I still haven't heard back from him.

I keep telling people, if you need something from Ring, pick up the phone. You'll have immediate help.
Email from Ring is always the slow road.

I am on the verge of going to DCC. RP is driving me nuts.

If RP drives you nuts I don't think DCC will be for you!

2 days is that all? Not trying to play it down but I'm still waiting on responses from a couple of years ago. In all seriousness 2 days isn't unusual. I sent in a bug report the other week, took 2 days to get an initial reply and then nothing further after providing further information.

Then I got a "could not verify" message.

Can you remember exactly what it said? there are two verify error messages in the HC software and they likely relate to different things.

No problem, Joe. You don’t have to delete the file in the LM, but delete it from your RPA program. Since you are having the problem on both the HC and the Simulator, that would also indicate a file issue.


Download it again from the RPA server in case your existing file is bad. While you’re waiting for the download walk away and get a nice piece of cake and a cup of coffee and don’t go back for at least 35 minutes.  ;D

First of all, I apologize Al, I didn't look at who was writing the text. Do I need to delete the 567 file before I load it again, or will the new file overwrite the old one?

The “could not verify “ message could indicate that the 567ULT file is corrupt. I would reload it on the HC Simulator and copy it over to the LM2s again.

Hi Tim, I changed the button to 567 UTL, and changed to the sound button, but still no luck with the engine sound. Using my HC I can move the engine, but only the lights respond to any buttons.
