Railuino component pack to wire the CanDIY on your railway model
This kit is intended to accompany the CanDIY shield to create a Railuino interface. Warning, the CanDIY shield is not included in this product, you must buy it separately.
This kit allows you to make the connection cable between a CanDIY shield and your Marklin 60113 connection case.
Railuino to hack your Marklin train
Yes, you read correctly! Railuino is a project and a library created by Joerg Pleumann, the great designer of Railuino. Railuino allows you to take control of your digital Marklin in order to create intelligent human machine/Marklin interfaces and/or automate scenes on your digital network.
Order switches, Marklin (digital) trains from an Arduino becomes child's play. We tested it with loco and switches using the MM2 protocol successfully.
See the tutorial section for more information.
The kit is consists of several components... some welding operations will be necessary to make the interface cable.
- 1x Mini-DIN connector 10
for connection to the Marklin 60113 connection case
- 1x CAT5 cable of 1m
to connect the CanDIY shield to the Marklin connection case.
This cable will be welded to the Mini-DIN connector
Accessory equipment, allowing to realize a GPIO extension (8 complementary inputs/outputs)
- 1x pinheader 40 pins
- 1x MCP 23S08 - a GPIO expander 8 inputs/outputs for SPI bus... a little brother of the MCP23017
- 1x 18-pin DIL Support
- 1x Resistance 10 kOhm
- 1x Capacity of 100nF (deworming)
This Railuino connection kit is used with a CANDIY shield to control a digital Marklin Train.
