LocoNet IR-Receiver IRIS Receiver for connecting to LocoNet Centers 1. Description The LocoNet IR-Set can be used to control locomotives, turnouts and routes wirelessly with any LocoNet digital center. Simply connect the LocoNet IR- Receiver with the LocoNet and the layout can be controlled with up to four IRIS hand controllers. Using this receiver you can also use the IR remote control IRIS or PIKO Digi-Fern with the IB-Basic, IB-Com, DAISY and the ProfiBoss. 1.1 Operating Mode All locomotives on the digital layout can be selected, their driving direction and speed, as well as their special functions, can be controlled with IRIS. IRIS can activate all solenoids and routes, which are stored in the Intellibox or an IB- Switch. So that a number of IRIS controls can be used, the control system has 4 channels, which are designated on the remote control by keys A, B, C and D. Each channel permits control of separate locomotive solenoids and routes, e.g. for a locomotive with the address 15, solenoids 1 to 4 and routes 1 to 8 in the Intellibox can be controlled with channel A, then locomotive 20, solenoids 13 to 16 and routes 21 to 28 can be activated with channel B. If a remote control is in use the different channels allow fast change from one locomotive to another. If several players use different remote controls (up to 4 on an Intellibox), each player can control the selected locomotive via a channel, without affecting the other locomotives, as long as they did not select the same locomotive address. Furthermore, each channel can have different solenoid addresses and routes assigned to the keys. The selected addresses are permanently stored in the LocoNet infrared receiver and are therefore also available after the power is switched off and back on again. 1.2 Connection IRIS Transmitter Place the batteries into the battery compartment as indicated on the back of the hand controller. Use batteries of type LR03-AAA-1.5 V. LocoNet IR-Receiver The LocoNet infrared receiver is connected to the LocoNet of a digital center. The receiver is fastened to the rear wall of the model railway facility with screws. As shown in the diagram, the area between the receiver and the transmitter must be free of obstacles. The receiver must always see the transmitter for trouble free operation. The main direction for receiving the signal is the center of the module cover, perpendicular to the cover surface of the receiver. During use, the remote control should be always held toward the receiver. The receiver s left control LED blinks in programming mode and with LocoNet activity. The right control LED blinks when the receiver receives an infrared signal from a remote control. In difficult conditions, e.g. a model railway layout is in two areas, it is necessary to use several receivers. For this, additional LocoNet infrared receiver can be attached to the LocoNet, or, the auxiliary receiver Part No can be plugged into the auxiliary socket of the receiver, with its DIN plug. Two receivers can be connected to the DIN auxiliary receivers socket with enclosed Y-cable. Important: Do not use the receiver in an area in which another IRIS receiver is already active. Among these are the following items: Intellibox II 65100, Intellibox-IR 65050, Intellibox with auxiliary receiver 66520, LocoNet IR receivers 63830, as well as the 6021-Infrared & LocoNet adapter IRIS Transmitter s Control Elements Right Control LED Blinks as long as a key is pressed on the remote control. Selection Keys L Starts the selection of locomotive addresses S Starts the selection of solenoid addresses T Starts the selection of routes or releases routes s Switches the track power on and off Numeric Keys 0 to 9 for entering of locomotive, turnout and route addresses Locomotive control + Increments the locomotive speed - Decrements the locomotive speed Travel direction reverse or emergency stop Travel direction forward or emergency stop Special functions e Special function Light on o Special function Light off a to d Special functions f1 to f4 f Changes the selection of special functions f5 to f8 g Changes the selection of special functions f9 to f12 r Switches a solenoid round or red G Switches a solenoid straight or green Channel Selection Keys A to D Keys for selecting the transmission channel 1.4 Locomotive Control Selecting a Transmission channel Every transmission channel can control a locomotive address independent of the other channels. A transmission channel is selected with the A to D keys. If all 4 channels have different locomotive addresses assigned then those locomotives can be rapidly selected for control, by changing channel. If more people with different transmitters wish to play on one layout, each player is assigned his own channel. Locomotive selection is then always done by entering the locomotive address. Entering a locomotive address Press the L key Enter the locomotive address using the 0 to 9 keys. The last four digits are used as the address. Note: The selection mode can be exited by pressing the L key again. The locomotive address is only taken over when one of the following functions is activated: eo - Light on, or off +- - Increase or decrease speed - Specify the driving direction a to d activate special functions Example: L e Locomotive address 1 is selected and the light is switched on. L Locomotive address 3456 is selected (only the last four digits are used) and the speed is increased. L L + e The channel s locomotive address is not changed because the second operation of the L key exits the selection mode. The actual locomotive has its light turned on. Controlling the speed The + and - keys are used to change the locomotive speed in steps. If the keys are held it keeps changing until the key is released again, or reaches the maximum, or the locomotive stops. Selecting the travel direction The and keys are used to change the direction. If one of the keys is pressed while the locomotive is running it will execute an emergency stop before setting the new direction. Emergency Stop If one of the arrow keys is pressed while the locomotive is running it will first do an emergency stop and subsequently select the corresponding travel direction. Switching Light The locomotive light is switched on with the e key and off with the o key. Switching Special functions Keys a to d switch special functions f1 to f4 on and off. With the help of the f key keys a to d can be switched over to operate special functions f5 to f8. Similarly the g key is used for special functions f9 to f12 (independent of the center being used). If, after operating a selection key, a key other than a special function key is pressed, the selection is cancelled. Direct selection of Speed step Keys 0 to 9 can set the locomotive speed directly. The speed steps assigned to the keys can be programmed via the LocoNet Infrared receiver. The speed steps for the 0 to 9 keys are set into LNCV s 13 to 22. (see Chapter 4) 1.5 Control Solenoids Selecting a transmission channel Each transmission channel can switch 4 solenoids (e.g. turnouts) directly with the red/green key pairs, independently of the other channels. A transmission channel is selected with the A to D keys. If the turnout keys are programmed for all 4 channels one can quickly operate 16 solenoids by switching channels. If more people with different transmitters wish to play on the layout each player is assigned a channel. The selection of the different turnouts is then always done by entering the turnout address. Entering a base turnout address The turnout keys are assigned with turnout addresses by assigning a base address to the left red/green key pair. The remaining three key pairs are automatically given the following addresses: Press the S key. Enter the desired turnout address with the 0 to 9 keys. The last four digits are used for the address. The selection mode is cancelled by pressing the S key again. The turnout address is accepted when one of the following keys is pressed: r Switch the solenoid with underlying address to round or red. G Switch the solenoid with underlying address to straight or green. The selection mode it exited if no key has been pressed in input mode for 10 seconds. Example: S r The left red/green key pair is assigned with the base address of 1. The other three key pairs are automatically given the following addresses. The r key switches the solenoid with the selected address (here 1) to round or red. S q The left red/green key pair is assigned with the base address of 1234 which is the last four digits that were entered. The other three key pairs automatically get addresses 1235 to 1237. The q key switches the solenoid with base address (here 1234) plus 2 (here 1236) to round or red. S S + P The channel solenoid address is not changed because selection mode is cancelled by operating the S key. The left red key switches the solenoid previously assigned to round or red. Switching of Solenoids Solenoids are switched by pressing the red or green key for the corresponding address. If the left red/green key pair has the base address of 11, the other three key pairs switch the following addresses 12, 13 and 14. r Switches the corresponding solenoid to round or red. G Switches the corresponding solenoid to straight or green. Switching of 4 preset Solenoids per Channel A - D Each channel A to D can switch four turnouts directly without an address entry. The addresses of these turnouts are programmed in the LocoNet Infrared receiver and can be changed by LNCV Programming. (see Chapter 4) These turnouts are switched by pressing the S key and immediately afterwards r key or the G key. In this way 4 solenoids can be switched per channels A - D. 1.6 Routes The IRIS remote control for LocoNet can switch routes in an Intellibox, an Intellibox II, in an IB-Control II and in an IB-Switch. For this the LocoNet- Infrared receiver has two modes for activating routes. In the first mode the Intellibox or a TwinCenter is activated by a solenoid address. In the second mode the routes in an IB-Switch, an Intellibox II, or an IB-Control II are activated by feedback states occupied or vacant. The appropriate mode can be configured in the LocoNet-IR receiver s LNCV3 (see Chapter 4) In Mode 1 for Intellibox or TwinCenter the following values are valid for routes in the Intellibox or TwinCenter In Mode 2 the routes in an Intellibox II, IB-Control II or IB-Switch are activated by their assigned feedback messages. In this case the remote control always sends the occupied message i.e. Routes to be activated by IRIS must always be activated by feedback message occupied. This must be taken into account when programming the routes in the Intellibox II, the IB-Control II or the IB-Switch. If Mode 2 is active, the following values are valid for calling up routes in the Intellibox II, IB-Control II or IB-Switch : Route activation Press the T key. Enter the desired route address with the 0 to 9 keys. Press the T key again to activate the route. Note: If after entering the digits another random key is pressed no route is activated. Example: Mode 1: T T Route 1 in the first Intellibox Group is activated. T T Route 34 is activated since only the last two digits are evaluated. T e No route is activated, since the key sequence was not terminated with the T key. e switches on the light in the actual controlled locomotive. Mode 2: T T The route identified by feedback address 1 occupied is activated. T T The route identified by feedback address 1234 occupied is activated, since only the last four digits are evaluated. T e No route is activated, since the key sequence was not terminated with the T key. e switches on the light in the actual controlled locomotive. Activation of 8 preset Routes per channel A - D Each channel A to D can activate eight routes directly without entering an address. The addresses of these routes are programmed in the LocoNet Infrared receiver and can be changed by LNCV Programming. (see Chap 4) These routes are triggered by pressing the T key and right afterwards a r key or a G key from the lower red/green key block. This way eight routes per channel A - D can be activated. 1.7 Power on / off The s key turns the track power on and off. 2. IRIS Display mode Devices such as the Intellibox II, IB-Control or IB-Control II, and also the LocoNet Display provide a mode in which the Infrared remote control IRIS can be monitored. If this mode is called up, all remote controlled activity is displayed. How to activate this mode and display options are outlined in the respective device manual. 3. Configuring the receiver with LocoNet Programming LocoNet-Modules are configured with LocoNet configuration variables (LNCVs). These LNCVs can be programmed with the help of the Intellibox (from Version 1.3), the IB-Control (from Version 1.55), TwinCenter (from Version 1.1), Intellibox Basic or Intellibox II. Since every module can only be used when it is suitably setup, we next demonstrate LNCV programming. 3.1 Calling a LocoNet-IR Receiver For Intellibox, Intellibox IR, Intellibox Basic, IB-Control and TwinCenter: Connect the module with the LocoNet. Operate the [menu] and [mode] keys after each other to enter the basic settings menu. Scroll to the LocoNet Prog. Menu with the [ ]-key. Press the [ ]-key Enter the module part number and press the [ ]- key. Enter the module address (for a new module - 1) and press the [ ]-key. In the top row the part number and valid module address are displayed. In the lower row the ID of the LocoNet-CV (here 0 for the module address) and its valid value are shown (here 1). For Intellibox II: Connect the module to the LocoNet. Press the [mode]-key and select the LocoNet Programming menu on the left side. Enter the part number and the module address (for a new module - 1). Press the Prog.Mode key. The module is switched to programming mode and the value of LNCV0 (module address) is displayed. Important: Every Module requires a module address for programming so that the Digital center knows which module is referenced. The factory default of a module is address 1. If a number of the same type of module are used with a center they must have different addresses. The allowable address range is 1 to To ensure that the module is being addressed correctly, a red LED on the module blinks while the module is in programming mode. 3.2 Reading and Programming a LocoNet-IR Receiver Similar to DCC Locomotive decoders the LocoNet-IR Receiver is setup with various configuration variables (CV). Contrary to locomotive decoders, which are programmed via the track, these are programmed via the LocoNet and are therefore called LocoNet CV s or LNCV s. For Intellibox, Intellibox IR, Intellibox Basic, IB-Control and TwinCenter: After calling up the module (see Chapter 3.1) the Intellibox Display shows: The Cursor blinks under the 0. Enter the LocoNet CV number you wish to program and press [ ]-key. The Intellibox reads the LNCV. The value is display on the bottom row right. Use the [ ]-key to move the cursor to the right and enter a new value for the LNCV using the numeric keys. Press the [ ]-key and the new value is programmed. Press the [ ]-key to select another LNCV Press the [ ]-key to select another module Or the [menu]-key to leave the programming Tip: As you are already familiar with on your Intellibox, the numbers indicated by the blinking cursor can be stepwise incremented or decremented by pressing the [+] and [ ] keys. For Intellibox II: Enter the number of the LocoNet CV you wish to program via the LNCV menu key. Press the menu key Read LNCV. The Intellibox reads the LNCV and the value appears in the display behind Value. Press the Value menu key and change the LNCV value. Press the Program menu key to change the value in the module. Change other values in the same way or press the Prog.Mode off menu key and eventually leave LocoNet programming with the Back menu key. 3.3 The Universal address The universal address as the name implies can be used to call up all modules with same part number. Because the universal address is not an address with which a LocoNet module can be identified, it is only used to call up individual modules whose address is unknown. For this, that module is connected to the LocoNet alone and no other module with the same part number. If the module is then called up its address can be read. 4. Description of the individual LocoNet CVs LNCV 0 Module address Address under which the module is called up for LNCV programming. LNCV 1 Software version Version of the module s software. LNCV 3 Configuration for calling up Routes Here you setup how the routes are sent to the LocoNet. LNCV 3 = 0 : The routes are triggered by entering numbers with a feedback status of occupied (for IB-Switch or Intellibox II). The preset routes (LNCV 39-70) are triggered by a feedback command of occupied (for IB-Switch or Intellibox II) LNCV 3 = 1 : The routes are triggered by entering numbers with a solenoid instruction (for Intellibox or TwinCenter). The preset routes (LNCV 39-70) are triggered by a feedback command of occupied (for IB-Switch or Intellibox II) LNCV 3 = 2 : The routes are triggered by entering numbers with a feedback status of occupied (for IB-Switch or Intellibox II). The preset routes (LNCV 39-70) are triggered with a solenoid instruction (for Intellibox or TwinCenter) LNCV 3 = 3 : The routes are triggered by entering numbers with a solenoid instruction (for Intellibox or TwinCenter). The preset routes (LNCV 39-70) are triggered with a solenoid instruction (for Intellibox or TwinCenter) LNCV 4 Startup time Specifies the time between the power being turned on to the LocoNet and the module first accessing it. LNCV 5-8 Save Locomotive addresses Buffer for storing the actual 4 locomotives being controlled by channels A - D. This buffer is overwritten with each new locomotive selection. LNCV Save Solenoid addresses Buffer for storing the actual 4 solenoids being controlled by channels A - D. This buffer is overwritten with each new solenoid selection. LNCV Speed Steps for the 0 9 keys LNCV s are used to specify the speed steps which are sent to the selected locomotive when pressing keys 0 to 9. Where: 0 means the locomotive stops with brake inertia 1 means emergency stop without brake inertia are the locomotive speed steps from minimum to maximum speed. LNCV direct turnout addresses Here 4 direct solenoid addresses per channel A - D can be setup. The LNCV s can have a value of for turnout addresses. LNCV preset Route addresses Here 8 direct route addresses per channel A - D can be setup. In feedback mode (LNCV3 = 0/2, for IB-Switch/Intellibox II) these can be values for feedback addresses from In solenoid mode (LNCV3 = 1/3, for Intellibox/TwinCenter) these can be values of route numbers 1-48. 4.1 Table of individual LNCVs of the LocoNet-IR Receiver LocoNet Value Default Description CV range value 0 Module address Software Version Module configuration for Route triggering triggered by number entry of feedback command and preset route triggered by feedback command 1 triggered by number entry of Solenoid command and preset route triggered by feedback command 2 triggered by number entry of feedback command and preset route triggered by Solenoid command 3 triggered by number entry of Solenoid command and preset route triggered by Solenoid command 4 Startup time in 0.5 second intervals Buffer for the recently controlled locomotive addresses of channels A-D , 2, 3, 4 4.1 Table of individual LNCVs of the LocoNet-IR Receiver LocoNet Value Default Description CV range value 9-12 Buffer for the recently controlled turnout ,20,30,40 addresses of channels A-D Speed steps for keys ,2,17,32 47,62,77,92 107, Preset solenoid addresses 1 4 for channel A ,2,3, Preset solenoid addresses 1 4 for channel B ,12,13, Preset solenoid addresses 1 4 for channel C ,22,23, Preset solenoid addresses 1 4 for channel D ,32,33, Preset Route
