Hello and here we go!!
Had been running PCLC for quite some time now with no issues. However now we've experienced finish flags being given 1 lap after designated lap # chosen in PCLC even though the final lap # was counted by PCLC. Laps not being counted, record lap times of 2, 4 & 5 seconds range time being given on a 8.25 sec track at best (No racer has ever broken 8 secs). also in "Message" box we receive a lot of Lane #1 Hardware reads 9.403 PCLC reads 27.564. The lane and numbers vary, but always happen when lap issues occur.
We've used 5 separate PCU's and MCU's as well as combined them. We mostly use two MCU's because we let PCLC manage our fuel (Pit tower is just in the way). Used various controllers, cars, start tracks, etc. We can produce these problems with any of them.
We use Windows XP3 w/PCLC designated for track use only. v5.24c, reject laps less than 7, non pit unit is unticked when using MCU's, min lap time 7, alert lap time 20.
I cannot recall any problems at all last year when running two lanes-147 feet with pit stop before Start/Finish line. Add lap after pit was ticked because cars never crossed S/F.
Now track is four lanes-97 feet with two S/F tracks wired in parallel. Add lap after pit unticked.
Ordering new PCU and MCU in morning just in case.
Any help of course is well appreciated. Let me know how and what other info/data we may need to send.
Thanx! gogo gone!
