Hi,

I have a -150, slaved to a Zephyr, (so I can get F0-F12), & have

noticed that when I turn off track power from the Zephyr, only the

Zephyr & its associated track turn off...-150 track pwr. stays on.

If I plug in a 400 to Loconet & turn off track power from it..same

thing happens... It seams the only way to shut off track power is to

leave it on & turn off Master Power Switch, which kills all Power

Supplys...Anyone know how to get around this?....Ken

Interesting, this same problem appeared in the DCS100 for a specific

production run. The solution was to replace the DCS100 CPU (firmware).

I think that you should make contact with Digitrax Technical Support

immediately. You may have a 'warranty' issue to be resolved. Perhaps some

more questionable firmware has escaped Digitrax quality assurance.

I am sure that you will get a positive response and resolution in a timely

manner.

In any case get back to the 'List' or myself with the result so that I can

make a DUPL entry.

Ken, I am no expert on this, but have the exact same set up and it works

fine. There were 2 issues I had when I installed the 150. First I made it

a slave by installing the wire jumper from Config A to the ground, rather

than messing with Ops switches. It was a little fidly, making sure this had

a good connection and was caught in the screw fittings. Second, the Rail A

and Rail B of the 2 units were reversed in polarity with respect to each

other. Apparently, a weell known fault, so I had to reverse the wiring to

the 150 on the A and B. This is all I had to do and as I said at the top,

it works fine.
