For more information on how to find those addresses, see this page. Note that JMRI generally provides other historical tools which are able to configure the same set of features via tools in the “LocoNet” menu. Please give a complete description of the issue you are having. Terminator and CAN bus cable shown are not included Additional Power-Point units may be added as required by your system’s power requirements. It is possible when using a DCS that a loco can be shown as occupying a “standard” slot when it actually is being controlled by an “extended” slot. This requires a separate LocoNet adapter for each connection.

Please give a complete description of the issue you are having. Note that JMRI generally provides other historical tools which are able to configure the same set of features via tools in the “LocoNet” menu. If you will have multiple connections, the “Defaults” tab in koconet “Preferences” panel may be used to direct certain types of operations to different connections.

These mechanisms are controlled by the “Turnout Command Handling” option for each LocoNet-based connection. Packaged in a smaller footprint the PR4 offers all the same great features as the PR3 it replaces. We’ll get them fixed up and return them to you as quickly as possible.

Rogue currents and ground issues can wreak havoc with your data, and even damage your LocoNet. More PR3 setup information can be found on the PR3 setup page. Support for Digitrax hardware products is available through Digitrax, Inc.


If you wish to keep the roster updated with any changes made via historical tools or using other tools or processes, it will be necessary to manually update the roster entry. The command station may not immediately loconst OpSw setting changes, so it may be necessary to “power-cycle” the command station, or to “put the command station to sleep” via the command station front-panel switch.

This can result in a “storm” of repeated switch messages on LocoNet if track power is off when switch messages are sent. Some LocoNet devices can be programmed either to resend the switch command if the rejection message is seen, or to not resend if the rejection message is seen.

Includes drive for any combination of: Up to 8 virtual track circuits for easy loconrt to other signal masts. When this occurs, the display will generallly be “corrected” within a few minutes. Join The Digitrax User Group.

Hardware Support: Connecting a LocoBuffer-USB to LocoNetĀ®

Some more recent Digitrax command stations will refuse to accept switch commands when track power is turned off. To disable it, you can use the “Configure Command Loconft tool in the LocoNet menu, or the Roster-based mechanism, or the throttle-based programming mechanisms as described in the manual for your command station.

Buffered inputs and outputs allow use with all operating systems with USB support.

When the command station gives this response, the switch command is not placed into the buffer and is forgotten. Digitrax product manuals may be found here. Other LocoNet devices can pay attention to the lconet message and can wait a while before re-sending the message.


Each signal mast may use as many lamps as required. Up to 8 Input Lines.

PR4 – USB to LocoNet Interface with Decoder Programmer – Released!

Many LocoNet devices do not notice the rejection message, so do not attempt to re-send the switch command. All configuration is stored internally in the nodes, and may be changed at any time on any system.

Digitrax command stations pass LocoNet switch command messages to the DCC track signal so that track-connected accessory decoders can receive the switch commands. RR-CirKits staff will be spending the week with family. JMRI provides a wide variety loconwt hardware-specific tools to assist in configuring the devices.

Any changes made to device configuration using the historical tools will not be reflected in a roster entry for the device. See below for more information on these. Up to 16 Input Lines. Do NOT send a locomotive with your decoder. The LocoBuffer II and original LocoBuffer are no longer commercially available; their primary advantage now is that they use a traditional serial port, which may be the only uxb connection type available on some older computers.
