I run a Ninco NDigital powered using a Simple-H which has run great after help from Rich G - no problems there.

Problem 1
I recently purchased a Slit it cDigital controller for Ninco digital but have had no success in getting this to work, it will tag, and will operate the lane changers, will vibrate to indicate fast lap or out of fuel but will not control the car motor speed. I have put this to one side awaiting a test on a standard powered Ninco base. But has anyony had similar problems.

Problem 2
I recently added a ninco light set to a digital car but cannot get the lights to work, tried on different cars etc but no joy, the lights work if just powered as per an analogue car but not with my base.

Does anyone have similar experience or any explinations?
Does anyone know if the two problems are related?
Or maybe I have missed something??!

Any assistance is appreceated.

Cheers Martin

Hopefully someone else will respond on this one.

I have to ask the basic questions:
  • Did you connect the light kit leads to the converter chip light terminals?
  • Did you switch the light kit leads back and forth between the converter chip light terminals to check polarity?
  • Did you turn the lights on at the console?
Note that the Ninco light kit has a capacitor that takes a few seconds to charge, perhaps a little longer in N-Digital.

The test with another console will be very helpful on both problems.

Thanks Michael

Yes reversed the light connections to the chip and all seems to work, I must admit I had not tried that way as the ninco instruction advist to connect the other way round (red wire to 6) and thought I may damage them if connected.

Once again thanks.

If anyone has any advice on Problem 1 - it is appreceated.

Thanks once again for the help.

Michael,

I did never had the problem you described, I think that the signal of the speed is not coming out of the SCP controller.
Have you set the dip switches of the digital cartridge correct switch 1 should be set to ON, check the manual?
Try to measure between pins 1 and 2, the voltage should vary when you move the trigger.

In general: know one thing, be carefull with the slot.it controller attached to your Ninco power base (PB)!
If you connect the controller in the wrong sequence than you risk to damage the lane change inputs of the PB.
The PB uses HCMOS ( high speed cmos) chips. If you put power to the slot.it controller prior than you put power on the PB a current will flow trough the HCMOS chip and it will destroy the chip.
I our club this happed three times. The first time slot.it did the exchange ( great service!).
The second time I replaced the SMD chip and placed a DIL package version.
The third time the swap was done in a minute thanks to the DIL package version.

Final solution: go for an Nbase!
