Only tell me what I have to know • Local controller software • Wapiti/BiTrans – 170 • Voyage/SCATS -2070 • Laptop or Central System software Translink – 170 NWCentral/Transuite - 2070
Only tell me what I have to know • Blinking light in the front is good on the Voyage 2070. Solid Red light on the SCATS 2070 front. Voyage Red light doesn’t start blinking until boot up completes. • Star Key brings you to the main operating display on the Voyage software. • Use label on the SCATS controller for menu prompts until memory kicks in.
Only tell me what I have to know • For Voyage , If hit “Next” then “escape” key the version number will display. If it’s not 3.02.2 then call BR 549! • Below the Ethernet connection is a Status light. Should be on when connected. If not then 90 percent chance the connection is not 10 megabit and half duplex or that the cable should be crossed.
Only tell me what I have to know • McCain controllers should have a green dot located on chassis to show they are current. • Siemens controllers will get a bouncing curser after operating for some time. • Econolite controllers have a new boot code out version D. • Modules are slot specific, take note where they came from.
Only tell me what I have to know • Ethernet in back and serial in front come standard on the 2070. • Simulated Watch dog allows 2070 boot time, signal will go dark in the event of a controller reboot while operating the intersection. • Conflict Monitor testing on live Intersection should be timed to allow main line to best facilitate 4 second all red startup.
Only tell me what I have to know • “F” key on Voyage 2070 will provide Help information on many selections. Hit “F” key again to exit. • Label on SCATS 2070 controller front panel gets you started. • Other suggestions from around group?
Interconnect cable • Silverton installation we left 170 interconnect in place and used another pair of wires to connect Ethernet conversion boxes. Leaves interconnect operation in place as long as possible. • Is there a best pair to use? John/Jason? • Center pair of wires was the pair used on the RJ11 connector going to the conversion box. • Sources for pre-made connectors?
