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.
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.
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
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.
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.
