The SoundBug track connections are shown below: Click here to send Digitrax Tech Support a message. Now for some results. The default setting is for termination by the command station so remember to make sure termination is turned on if you are using it in stand alone mode. Note that Digitrax only guarantees programming for Digitrax SFX decoders with properly installed loads, etc, but our testing has found that the PR3 will work with many common decoders. This will cause JMRI to mark track power as “off”. We’ll get them fixed up and return them to you as quickly as possible.

With the Zephyr in ops mode there were no problems at all.

With the Zephyr it could not read the WOWSound decoder however with the PTB added it got the type right off, took 2 tries for the basic and sound panes, and 3 tries for pt3 write followed by a read. Again, there were no problems with ops mode writes. Once you add a second locomotive, you will want to change the this new locomotive to another address. Use the JMRI Power Control or the “Power” menu item on the Throttle’s menu bar to turn on track power, and digiteax you can operate the locomotive normally.

Serial ports are not available on most computers in current production. Jack Frielingsdorf sent in this question after djgitrax March column on the new Soundtraxx Soundcar decoder:. It cannot do any stand alone programming and acts only as an interface between the computer and the Digitrax system.


Basically it comes down to whether the LED is on more than it is off when it is blinking as opposed to winking. Occasionally running the update twice or Most of the computer interfaces I have worked with function essentially automatically and do not require the modeler to do much of anything other than make sure the JMRI preferences ppr3 set correctly.

I then tested each as a stand alone programmer by reading the decoder type, addresses, CV29, and lights pane on the DN93FX, and the type, digigrax pane CV29, addresses, mfgand the sound pane horn, bell, prime mover, throttle type, etc.

JMRI Hardware Support – Connecting to a Digitrax PR3 (Xtra)

Our ears are very sensitive to sound interruptions so, the capacitor on your sound decoder will prevent most of these drop outs on average quality track. The capacitor that came with your Digitrax sound decoder is designed to hold up sound operation in the presence digitrsx brief power interruptions. Un-repairable items will be returned to you at no charge with no repairs made.

Jack Frielingsdorf sent in this question after my March column on the new Soundtraxx Soundcar decoder: I did this last year and had no problems at all. The sound project loaded into this decoder may be operated independently digitgax any other DCC motor or function decoder. It can also be used to download sound information into Digitrax sound decoders and, within its limited current capability, run one locomotive to test it.

Ops mode worked fine. When you steal you are truly stealing control of the locomotive instead of sharing it as was the case before the DCS and DT R2 firmware were released.

However, you have to turn termination on or off depending on how the PR3 is being used. Many of the units we receive for repair do not need any repairs at all. This was also true when the PTB was used.

Product Support for: Computer Control -> SoundFX USB Decoder Programmer (PR3)

March 24, DCC Guy. When the PR3 is configured to act as a programmer, it is connected to a dedicated programming track via the screw terminals on the PR3. Please give your name, e-mail address, phone number and when is the best time to contact you. September 27, DCC Guy.

The PR3 is dgitrax combination of two previous Digitrax devices:
