1  Discussion Boards / HO / Bachmann and MTH on: April 16, 2018, 07:12:15 PM
Mr. Bachmann,

So I now a have an MTH Mohawk for my ho layout. Sweet. When I put on my setup and try to start up or turn on the system, the other eight locos on the tracks skip and sputter and hum and click until I tip the MTH off the track it is on and let the other trains start or come on. Once that happens I can reset the MTH back on the track it is on and all is fine. The MTH waits for f-3 to start like it is supposed to and operates normally.
My setup is a Dynamis Pro with a 5 amp booster.
If the MTH is supposedly dormant until individually called up where is the voltage or current disruption coming from? Why is it so much of a load it trips the booster, but is ok after the old on off?

What sound decoder setup is recommended for use in the Niagara?
TCS has some Bachmann motherboard specific listings but not for the centipede tender configuration.
Has anyone done an upgrade to sound?

Thanks

Sadly this is the anniversary of the loss of my nephew SSg MArk A. Stets jr. US ARMY  in Pakistan Lower Dir in 2010 along with two other soldiers and three young girls at an attack by the Taliban.
Please keep them and all the fallen in your hearts and minds as you seek peace in your life.

Roster in the loosest of meanings.
It s just the actual list of what you have entered, up to a limit of 40 items, then swap out units to stay at 40.
There is NO Way to sequence the entries alphabetically or numerically by the Dynamis without entering the info in said order.
Its just a LIST.

The everyday calling out is not the problem, its the "emergency situation" that puts the system in jeopardy. Calling out the individual engine with the problem before the situation gets out of hand without "hitting the STOP Button" and shutting the whole layout down is what I am referring to. I have several duplicate 4-6-4's, 4-8-4's, E-7's, RS's, etc, so picking the right one is crucial.
 Guess I need a secretary to keep it all straight on a "Currently Active Display Board" so I can have a quicker response time, especially on parallel tracks sections.  I can have up to 9 trains so....the quicker I can sort things the better.

 The Dynamis Pro system and "no software", unlike Decoder Pro and its software (free) will not sequence entries by alphabet or numbers so that's why the question.
 I don't know why this was not considered when the system was made available. Did they not think that someone would use more than one or two trains at a time? I have over thirty entries of steamers, diesels, and consists entered on my list and trying to find a single engine easily is more that a test of memory and key entries.
 You can only get there by super fast toggling or the correct engine call out on the keypad.
 Miss something and send in the MOW for cleanup!!! Just ask me!
 So that's why I asked the Bach Man. Am I asking too much?

Bach Man,

Is there a way to alphabetize or sequence the registry in my Dynamis Pro system. I have to keep my schedule list handy or my trains to a known group to move about the tracks safely. The registry is as the engines and diesels were originally entered into the list. Diesels, locomotives, and consists, all random. Searching for a specific  train to change parameters through the same bowl of ball bearings each time drags on a bit since the screen only shows loco last used. Having the list available in some order would make the search so much quicker. Shouldn't hard since there are only 40 slots available for input
Do I have to write down my own new list on paper then enter them ALL back onto the registry in the order I want after DELETING ALL my current entries??

Cobbled a couple cables and plugged them in flipped the switch to 18 v because I have a Spectrum 10 passenger car consist and std lighting so big draw.
All loops hi ballin' with a mix of old and new steamers. My older BLI is sensative to signal and when it restarts the current draw is now obvious as the booster kicks in. Seeing that points me to the source of the problem I had of tripping off randomly.

So got booster.
Good thing Hunt gave diag because Bachmann does not.
I have the Dynamis IR Pro system. What's the hookup for that.
There is no program track connection available with the EZ Command Booster.
Do I still use the same output source from the Dymanis for programming and also to the booster?
You tube for this shows runaway situations.

Today would have been my nephew and highly decorated American hero Mark A Stets jr's 47th birthday were it not for his loss in Pakistan Feb 3 2010. Please remember him today and next month also, as well as all of those other Soldiers who fallen in the name our shared freedom.

Thanks HUNT, just what I needed to know and the hookup diag's are a bonus.

Will the E-Z Command 5 a booster work on a DYNAMIS PRO system?
Is a BOOSTER a BOOSTER?
