Now onto CATS • • Java application that runs atop JMRI Modern CTC Panel Now onto CATS • • Java application that runs atop JMRI Modern CTC Panel modeled after Digicon Authored by Rodney Black A few really outstanding features – Uses all the debugging tools in JMRI – Track speeds – Great benefits even without signals – “Pre-programmed” signal logic 3/17/2018 13

CATS Three components 1. Designer (draw and design) 2. CATS (runtime application) – Draw CATS Three components 1. Designer (draw and design) 2. CATS (runtime application) – Draw track – Add turnouts – Define blocks and protocols – Add occupancy & turnout dectection – Define signals 3. Train. Stat (train tracking application) 3/17/2018 14

CATS Demo - Phase 1 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Draw Track Add Turnouts CATS Demo - Phase 1 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Draw Track Add Turnouts Show occupancy detection Show turnout position Demonstrate CATS & Train. Stat Pretty Impressive without any signals!! 3/17/2018 15

Time for Signals • Many different wiring formats • Especially true for the searchlight Time for Signals • Many different wiring formats • Especially true for the searchlight signals common in the Northeast • My choice: Let simplicity rule. I adopted common anode wiring everywhere. This can work for D-type, G-Type, searchlights & PRR position light signals. Pin #1 Pin #2 Pin #3 3/17/2018 Common Anode (+12 v) 16

RJ 22 Connectors • Handset connectors & can be found in the Mouser Catalog RJ 22 Connectors • Handset connectors & can be found in the Mouser Catalog • Pre-Wired with 4 color coded (red, yellow, green & black) wires • Label and click connect at either end • I used 4 connector flat telephone cable 3/17/2018 17

Oaktree Systems • • JMRI Compatable 6 wire telephone cable, up to 64 Cards Oaktree Systems • • JMRI Compatable 6 wire telephone cable, up to 64 Cards IO 24, IO 48, O 48 Cards They support the B&O railroad museum layout 3/17/2018 18

CATS Demo – Phase II • Signal templates – These allow defining aspects/rules • CATS Demo – Phase II • Signal templates – These allow defining aspects/rules • • Signal placement Testing Define can perform as ABS, APB, or CTC Detail the CTC panel – Labels – Remove intermediate signals 3/17/2018 19

CATS Functionality • Super approach to aspect definition • Speed signaling (great for Northeast CATS Functionality • Super approach to aspect definition • Speed signaling (great for Northeast RRs) • Support for out-of-service and giving track authority • Route locking, Indication Locking • Occupancy tracking • Train tracking • Supports arbitrary order of modules in software 3/17/2018 20
