Are you using the CRC algorithms to make sure you are writing and reading packets correctly?

Maybe you are misreading the ID byte... for example bit 2 and bit 1 only read in the wrong order would give the results you describe...

6=110 i.e. bit2=1 and bit1=1
reversing =11 =3

3=011 i.e. bit 2=0 and bit1=1
reversing =10 =2

This is just an example of how misreading the ID byte could give seemingly spurious results, so definitely worth double checkibg you go your read algorithms correct...

Put more carefully, I would certainly suspect reading of the ID byte coming from the powerbase in the first instance...

hi Riko, thanks for peaking my interest but really sorry I cant open the link, would you mind resending please?

And thanks Injectorman, I agree that proportional braking is a must have feature... InCarPro is ready to handle proportional braking as soon as this feature is unlocked in the ARC PRO firmware (so Hornby can decide when). Also the InCarPro v4.0.1 traction algorithms include a maximum braking strength setting. Currently it can only be accessed by ISCP upload but if the demand is there it could be accessed by a standard ARC controller.

What about real throttle profiles so you use it non-mag? Like we did with PB-Pro a dozen years ago...

DRC, have a look at this and see if you can do the same for ARC PRO...

Hi Riko, the magless concept is already build into ICP v4.0.1 in a form which is already compatible with the ARC PRO and the APB C7042 so thats another box we can tick. And by putting the code inside the decoder it can be (and is) 7bit resolution rather than limited to 6bit resolution as per the track protocol. Wish I had seen your attachment document earlier.
