QUOTE (Walter @ 4 Oct 2007, 11:28) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hello,

I put a TCS M1 in a Bachmann Jinty last night and am struggling somewhat with tuning performance. I'd like it to run like a proper shunter - good slow speed control, limited max speed, some accelleration/decelleration delay.

How should I configure CV 2, 5, 6 for speed, CV 3 and 4 for momentum and CV 56 and 57 for dither?

Does anyone else have a Jinty or similar with a TCS decoder from the M range that they'd be happy sharing their setup with?

I've had a look on the TCS web site and gone through the (excellent) documentation, but I was hoping to refer to a real life example



Hello Walter

Is this a new M1 with back EMF? If so, you shouldn't really need to adjust very much at all.

If not, leave CV2 alone if you are configuring dither. If you want some starting points for CV settings try but remember every loco is slightly different. The settings shown are not specifically for a Jinty but do give examples of settings for slow running.
