(voltage per function output inquiry added in post 8 below)

Hi all,

I'm exciting to be trying function mapping for the first time, using a lokpilot 4.0 and my ecos for programming in this particular example. Before I horrifically boths this, I was wondering if those more experience might be able to check my math on the logic below?

ESU manual can be found here, relevant pages are 50-53 if relevant. http://www.esu.eu/en/dow...anuals/digital-decoders/

The mission: when Loco is forward and F0 "on", to also light F2, and when in reverse to light F1 (swiss lighting)

CV31= 16 in order to enter function mapping
CV32= 2

CVK lighting values below, manual page 53:
CV394 1 (headlight on) +8 (aux 2 on)=9
CV346 2 (rear light on) +4 (aux 1 on) =6

Did I get this right? Thanks!

Hi,

Why don’t you use the builtin ECoS programming feature for lokpilots? In the locomotive settings, on tab 3, do the profile. After that you’ll get to all decoder functions in a more ”graphical” view.

Have you aver thought of getting a lokprogrammer, I've been using it since day 1 and don't look back but ti depends how many locos you have or anticipating getting but you can program them (not all of them (CV's) are as clear as water) when using the ECoS.

Peder gave an excellent answer. The ECoS has a nice UI that allows programming modern ESU decoders nearly as comfortable as you can do with a Lok Programmer.

Can you explain how your "answer" relates to this thread and the questions in the first post? How does an address calculator help with light functions?
Owners of a Mobile Station, Central Station, Intellibox, or ECoS usually do not need an address calculator as this functionality is built into the controller.

Regards
Tom

Sorry nobody has actually answered your question.

yes, I believe you are correct.

Your input condition blocks appear to be

Forward and F0: 4+16=20
Reverse and F0: 8+16=24

I believe those two values get written into CV257 and CV273. 257=20 273=24

Your output conditions are

Forwards: headlight+aux2: 1+8 = 9
Reverse: rear lights+aux1: 2+4 = 6

I think those two values go into CV266 and CV282 266=9 282=6

Those are the CVs that correspond to your condition CVs in 257 and 273

Thanks everyone! To answer why I wanted the math check is fairly simple- I need to learn the concept and theory so I understand how it all works, then I can cut corners on future ones. It is when I don't know what I'm doing and then a shortcut exercise goes wrong that scares me!

Studying all of this now. Sadly I depart on a work trip this afternoon so no time to test, but I will asap upon return!

Hi everyone,

I finally got back to this tonight. I tried manually plugging in the math/CVs, and something was amiss and I didn't keep notes, so I just reset the decoder.

Starting from square one, I looked at peder's advice which was quite smart- I looked into the ecos and this is much easier! Or at least there is a UX that does the explanation for me. It took some thinking but I got it all set up, and its working wonderfully. Amazing how much easier this way was to accomplish, and I now have a decent idea of how to do this for other functions and mapping.

Almost there- now I just need to re-tune the motor CVs....
