Can I use the new special mode A2 of the Massoth Navigator software 1.9 “Get loco” by the PC also?
It’s possible by using the version STE-
1. Set the special mode A2 of the Navigator as described at Massoth.
2. If you want a loco by the Navigator,, input /change to this number at the Navigator.
3. The Navigator will show you a “cross” = loco reserved, but the PC sends a command “set loco free” automatically.
4. Push a second time the right Navigator button (OK) and the loco is now free for the Navigator.
5. Next you must pull the speed knob to the shown speed/direction to change the speed.
6. Now it’s possible to control with both: PC and Navigator until you will go out of the running mode.
Furthermore there is still the older releasing procedure by the icon emergency stop within the small loco window.
If I'm switching turnouts by the Massoth Navigator, the new status is not displayed at the PC. I use the LGB Central Unit MTSIII 55006, the Massoth Navigator and the LGB PC-
This is a hardware problem between the Massoth Navigator and the LGB Central Unit IIII (55006). Because the LGB Central Unit is too slow for the fast communication of the Navigator data, Massoth decided the switching commands not to send to the PC Interface. You can only solve this problem by keep on using the old Universal handheld or change to the Massoth DiMAX 800Z.
Is it possible to control my locomotives and to switch points by using a Massoth Navigator (at DiMAX-
In principle it’s possible, but all information sent from Navigator to the LGB Central Unit 55006p (DiMAX-
Can I connect via the DiMAX Transducer 8138501 a LGB-
Sorry, it’s not possible, because the Piko Central Unit is using the DiMAX code, but the LGB Interface 55060 needs the LGB MZS II code, which only a LGB Central Unit can send/receive to/from Interface 55060.
If I'm using the Massoth DiMAX together with Stellwerk easy (same with Stellwerk 2001) the speed of a locomotive, which is running with 28 speed steps, is changing sometimes abruptly its speed, this means it drives very fast or very slow. What is the reason?
This is a firmware error of the Massoth Central Units, which was solved now by the firmware version 2.50 by Massoth. The new firmware version can be received from Massoth.
I want to transfer from LGB MTS auf Massoth DiMAX. Can I use furthermore my LGB MTS program?
This is only possible, if the Massoth Central Unit 800Z/1200Z is running in old MTSII mode and you have a LGB PC-
But this is a bad solution, because you can use loco numbers only up to 22 with 14 speed steps and also up to 8 functions. It's better to use the Massoth interface to PC directly by the program "Stellwerk easy". The track layout can be imported and then higher loco numbers than 22 and also 28 speed steps or more functions are supported. Old LGB parts (e.g. handhelds )can be used furthermore by the Massoth Transducer 600A, but only within the limits of the LGB MTSII.
What have I to do to use your program "Stellwerk easy" instead of my LGB MTS-
You must only import your track layout once by the import function of "Stellwerk easy" to a new file format. The track layout will be the same. You can test as demo-
I have a LGB Central Unit 55006 and very often I see the message "ALL OFF" for a short time, but with the Central Unit of my friend all is running fine. What's the reason?
The reason is probably a hardware error of the LGB Central Unit. Such a problem is known for several units 55006. Please, call company Massoth for an update. This error don't occur with LGB Central Unit 55005.
I have yet the old first LGB Central Unit 55000 (1+7 locos). Can I use "Stellwerk easy" with this unit?
The LGB Central Unit 55000 can only support up to 8 locomotives, these are usable, and also other possibilities of "Stellwerk easy". You should recognize the following conditions:
1. The "maximum loco number" must be reduced at "Initializing" window to 7 (or 8).
2. You should use the LGB MTS Remote Adapter 5500110 to connect more bus modules/parts, because the Central Unit 55000 is only supporting low current for the (round) bus connector.
Furthermore you need also your old LGB PC-
Is it possible to use schedules of MTS-
a) There is a import function in schedule editor of Stellwerk easy. Here the used contact numbers are converted once.
b) This conversion is not (yet) available in schedule editor of Stellwerk 2001 (STWEDIT). If you have used MTS-
Can I use the Massoth Feedback Modules 280R for LGB MTS 55005/55006 with 55060 in STe-
The Massoth Feedback Module 280R can be used also in connection with the LGB MTS 55005/55006, but you must not plug into the DiMAX-
There is now a programming routine (in STe-
Which feedback modules can be connected to Massoth DiMAX and how are contact numbers to define?
You can connect to the Massoth DiMAX:
a) The Massoth Feedback Module type 280R (8170001) to the Massoth Bus directly.
b) The LGB Feedback Module types (55070, 55075) can be connected via Massoth Transducer 600A to the DiMAX.
c) A mixed connection of LGB feedback modules is possible as slaves on the Massoth Feedback Module, but here a special HW/SW-
There is now a programming routine (in STe-
You find also a table and formula within the documentation (chapter 21.8). To get the exact contact numbers for the LGB feedback modules (using their DIP switches) a special program tool and also a table in the documentation (chapter 21.9) are available.
Is it possible to use STELLWERK 2001 for LGB MTS-
Sorry not yet, because E.P. Lehmann had own Interfaces (55060 and/or 55045) and had not published their transfer codes. The last version 6.0 of LGB MTS-
