Default RE: AirWire Adapta-1 install in an Aristo GP40

Hi Greg.
The Adapta-1 is designed by CVP purely so that it makes installing AirWire into Aristo locos much simpler.
It is not connected to the track pick ups at all. Just the motor(s), F & R lights and + & -. Two other terminals are for the battery input.
As I understand it, it comes as a kit with a single side pcb, screw terminals, a Polyswitch fuse and the 10 & 12 pin header pins.

I see, I thought the G3 was plugged into the adapta-1, and was underneath it in the second picture..

Got it...

Nice Pictures Jim. I am new too this site, but picked up a lot of good information. I do have a question, when you installed the Adapta board on your engine, I noticed Aristo had a two dummy plugs, one of course to be removed when install the adapta board, the other was for the ditch lights. I am assuming you leave the dummy plug for the ditch lights in place, correct?

I am afraid that you may need to start a new thread if you want an answer. The last reply to this thread was in 2013, and I am not sure whether Jim still posts here. Sometimes you are more likely to get a reply when you start a new thread. Wish I could help you, but I am more directed towards live steam these days.

Regards,
David Meashey

I am new to this hobby...been collecting for years and finally doing it. I have an Aristo Dash 9 I am putting AirWire DCC in. I see there is a dummy plug for the dash lights on the main circuit. Do I remove this plug or leave it when I put in the Adapta Board?

Also, can I plug the two brown wires (plug) from the sound card into the port for speakers, or wire them directly to the adapta board? It is all pretty straight forward..but just not sure on some things.

There is no place for speaker wiring on the Adapta board.

Do you have the diagram for it?

Jim,

I made sure the address and frequency is the same for my Aristo Dash 9. But I don't think that is the problem.

I left the on board switches in place, hoping that all I needed to do was make sure that the switches were left in the appropriate positions:

Battery/Track Power "battery" position
Smoke "on"
Lights "on"
Motor "on"

The G3 decoder is still not talking to the remote throttle, even with initial power up, the green light is steady with them G3, but the red light does not come on, which should happen even before it is programmed, as it knows the throttle found the decoder, even before programming. I reprogrammed the address and frequency, still nothing.

What am I doing wrong? I have double checked everything with the exception of doing what the fellow from the fellow from the Ottawa Garden Railroad Society in Canada said to do with the MU connectors on the main board. May that is my problem. But he was also using a GP45 not a Dash 9, but the boards looked the same.

Thanks
Dave

Dave, set the transmitter frequency to 0 (zero) and tell me if the red LED is lit.
