JMRI is a free software suite for programming decoders, creating panels, and other operations. For more information and to download your own copy go to http: For example, the “stop” aspect will be a single red lamp on a signal mast with one head, red over red lamps for a signal mast with two heads, etc. Starting with JMRI 2. A Signal Mast can operate one or more heads, as required to do umri prototypical manuap based on aspects.
When its “Aspect” is set to e. Signal Masts are configured through the Signal Mast Table. You add new ones with the “Add To add a new signal mast, you specify what kind of signaling system it uses see systemsthe specific signal type like “double searchlight” or “double head dwarf”, and what layout signal heads it’s going to drive. If the layout has been drawn up on the layout editor and the SignalMasts have been placed on the panel using its various tools, then it is possible for all the Signal Mast logic to be dynamically built, with little user interaction.
Due to the many new features available in the latest version of JMRI the clinics for have been completely redone from the beginning.
Much of the manhal information has not changed, but key new features dictated that we start over from scratch. During this process I was working closely with the developers, and actually overshot the official 2. This means that there are some features covered in these clinics that were not publicly available until the JMRI 2. If you see a feature that you like, and it is not in the version you are using, then consider upgrading to a newer version.
As I told the folks at my clinics, If you see a test release that has been out for more than a week or so without a manal one replacing it, then feel confident that it will not cause you problems. Always make a backup of any panel files in case you need to return to an older version for any reason. I created this new series of clinics using OpenOffice.
Like previous presentations see below these presentation files are large and have been broken up into smaller sections for easier downloads. There is a matching kmri of PanelPro files in. Do not be tempted to use the Microsoft XML editor because it saves the files with a format error that prevents any further use by PanelPro.
These panel files expect that you are running JMRI 2. They use the LocoNet Mqnual, but also will interface with a LocoNet layout using actual sensors and turnouts.

If your LocoNet layout has different items attached at the addresses used by this demo it may behave strangely while running the demo files. Simply switch into simulator mode to prevent this. Covers the basics of how to build a simple classic CTC panel image and use it to control turnouts using Active Images. Covers how to use the JMRI graphical logic tools known as Logix to add some simple interlocking rules.
Covers new copy and editing features that allow easy changes to panels and Logix. This could include a panel controlling your turnouts, or simply be running on a dedicated machine under the layout doing your signal logic.
Covers how to add CTC to your panel. Include sounds and delays. There is a set of PanelPro files in. Covers the basics of how to build a simple classic CTC panel image and use it to control turnouts. The first panel shows all the underlying controls used for the signals and interlocking.
The second version of the panel strips out all the extra information and presents the panel more like an operator half a century ago would see prp. Both versions include sounds and delays. The older clinic series is presented in the form of a series of Macromedia Flash files. These files are very large, so I have split them into shorter segments for more reasonable download times. I have also noted their sizes for your information.
To get your free copy of the Macromedia Flash player follow the above link. The EXE versions jmrii for some of the older files may run with better resolution for Windows only.

However the scroll bar does not work. To proceed from one page to the next after reading the appropriate text click on the “Next” button located near the lower right side of each frame. The “back” button returns you to the previous section. You may also control the presentation with the button and time bar at the bottom of the screen. Dragging the slider along the time bar allows you to easily skip ahead or back any nmri. These frames were created at a resolution of x so you may need to maximize your browsers viewing area to see them clearly.
It is recommended that you download the files manyal run them locally from your own machine. These clinics are linked from one to another. You can start at any point and move backward or forward from there. There are also “skip ahead” points to pass repeat information that you already understand well. To run off-line, copy both the.
