No not the Zero, not that far back, pukka DCC. I didn't have the spare time or cash to play with trains until the kids left home and I retired from full time work, about 13 years ago. I started with OO gauge and Hornby were the only company to sell a complete DCC system including trains, track, transformer, command station/controller and PC software to control trains points and signals. The software was a bit clunky, and support even more so, but it worked most of the time (Hornby RailMaster)Dave, not patronizing, very helpful, I assume this was the Zero!
Er! Nope.... the 12V limit ONLY applies for the supply to the UNO, that is the MAX INPUT the internal voltage regulator can handle.
That doesn't sound right. To "identify" a loco by reading CV values you need to be using a programming track in service programming mode - the track power is never on continuously on a programming track.If I try to identify the engine on the track with power on AND the engine noise is idling, the sound gets interrupted but I always get the 308 error.
