Hello Foiler,

How are you connecting your lightbridge to your system. I am using the DS lightbridge with the phidget board from Mainline Hobbies. I can get my car to use fuel but cannot get it to refuel.

I am connecting my light bridge to a Phidget 0/16/16 interface board.
Have you checked to make sure that your Phidget board is receiving a Logical "1" when your car is sitting beneath your light bridge? If your Phidget board is receiving a Logical "0", you will count laps and use fuel, but refueling will NOT work.

Read the following article, if you haven't already. The article explains the situation more thorougly:

I suspect that you need to install some pull-up resistors between your light bridge and your Phidget board, per the drawing in the above article.
A quick check to determine the correct Phidget state for PCLC is the following:

Correct Operation for Lap Counting AND Refueling:
The Phidget 0/16/16 Green L.E.D.'s (normally OFF) will flash ON, when a car passes under your light bridge. This indicates that the Phidget is receiving a Logical "1" when the car blocks your light sensors.

Incorrect Operation for Refueling:
The Phidget 0/16/16 Green L.E.D.'s (normally ON) will flash OFF, when a car passes under your light bridge. This indicates that the Phidget is receiving a Logical "0" when the car blocks your light sensors.

I hope this helps.

On the PCLC side.....Are you sure that you have ticked the options "Generate Pit IN...." '(in cars detection tabpage) , like here ?



If the option "Generate PIT IN..." is grayed it means that you have ticked the options in the pit stop tabpage !!!.
Tick "Generate PIT IN..." in pit stop tabpage is only when you have separate detector dedicated for pit stop...
