Just follow the instructions the same way. Just only install one of the electronics boards. The principle is the same. I have several installed and they work great.
I have a straight X LC, and will be doing a curved one this week at some point.

Hi, i allso have Ninco Digital, i don't recall any other discussion other than this thread on energizing of the Dead Strips on Ninco Track. I must of missed it. That being said what is the purpose and how dose it effect the lane changer operation ( with the car chip) I currently have all my lane changers on a seperate power supply with my Pit lane changer being on a manual switch. Thanks in advance, Robert V.

IF you plan to also run NINCO DIGITAL - N-DIGITAL then you should NOT bring power to the dead strip.
My track is full Oxigen, so I did bring power to the dead strips.

AHHA, i see said the blind man, thanks for the explanation on the dead strips. I was wondering how that was going to work with the standard Ninco Didital system. I think i am going to look into the Oxygen Wireless System. What has it cost you so far to convert. Thanks Robert V.

^ a good amount of money... but its been done little my little.
As you know the more expensive things are the controllers, then the chips. I only have 4-5 chips and I plan to make them last a while until the version 2 chips come out.

I have about 60 cars of all makes,but only 40 cars are currently chipped for Ninco. At 27.00 dollars a chip i have alot allready invested in my Ninco track and accesories without counting the cost of the cars. I have 4 lane changers and a double Pit lane as well as the Digital Lap Counter Tower. How much of this system of mine is reusable if i went over to Oxygen. Thanks Robert V.

Essentially the track
You need a different chip
The controllers are different ie need the slot it controller and the oxigen module in the controller
And new lane changer chips
You would also need a dongle

you dont have to chip all your cars... I have done 3-4 IROC and that should be good to enjoy some racing and have a good time. If we get bored of those cars, then we chip another 3-4 for the next time we meet.

its not a cheap conversion, but it certainly changes the level of digital and compared to N-digital it just makes driving much better and more controlled.

I was trying to get some help from slot.it on this but I guess he was busy.
Yes it makes sense, but then you have to bring power to that segment from somewhere else, or that rail will be dead. I had a problem like that, but since In analog I only run one car it did not matter to me much.

Did you get a chance to run the system yet?

Yes but the lane changers don't work done both the straight cross over and the single lane changer above with a link to the dead strip not shown on picture ( right corner ) dip switches 1 off 2 on 3 on 4 on
but the lanes don't change

Looking at the picture you just posted , your sensor seems to be UPSIDE DOWN. You want the black DOT to be towards the track surface. The Black dot is the sensor.
I almost more that mistake at fist.

Maurizio mentioned at the SCI forum that the NINCO N-Digital - oXigen hybrid set up might not work since the oXigen car chip will lose power when going over the dead strip and not be able to initiate a lane change. You may be able to move the oXigen lane change chip slightly further away from the flipper to prevent this situation.

Best regards,
Brian

Hi.
On important thing: the coil wires are covered with enamel - that is, they are not conductive unless you remove with a blade the transparent coat. It is essential.
Have you done that? Please check the part of the manual where this is explained.
