I don't know why but the green light turns off in the middle of a race.
If I press "Pause" and "restart", the green light turn on again.

I have the mainline hobbies phidget kit, the ligtht works perfectly, even I tested the new blinking option, but this seems something weird.

Another weird thing is that some times, the powre turns off automaticaly, no pause is indicated on the screen, but again... if I push restart, I can continue with no problems.

Any clue?.

Thank you.
Eduardo.

Hum...i think this is hardware problem, you already had that kind of problem here: http://pclapcounter.winnerbb.net/phidgets-interface-kit-f14/problem-after-i-updated-the-pclc-phidget-library-solved-t537.htm

No Guy, it is a very different problem. the link you added here was solved by replacing a button (hardware).

Here, just the light does turn off, the race continue with no problems, the cars have power, the bridge count the laps, the pc-lapcounter count the laps, but the light is off. If I push pause, and restart, the green light turns on again, and it works.

I thought that may be something could happen with the new feature of blinking lights when in pause. I ticked this option lately. But I am just guessing.

Thanks.
Eduardo.

About the green light: i test it and it work fine, i really think that you have a hardware problem because PCLC not send any command to cut the green light in the middle of a race scratch

Hi Eduardo,

Your problem could be the Phidget outputs. If I'm correct the output current of the Phidget is limited. Solution is to have a relais in between your lights and the Phidget... with other words: let the Phidget trigger the relais (that should take less current to manage). The relais then takes care of powering the starting lights.

regards,
Danny
