Class SimulatorAdapter

All Implemented Interfaces:
Runnable, PortAdapter, SerialPortAdapter

public class SimulatorAdapter
extends NcePortController
implements Runnable
The following was copied from the NCE Power Pro System Reference Manual. It provides the background for the various NCE command that are simulated by this implementation.

Implements a Command Station Simulator for the NCE system.

BINARY COMMAND SET

The RS-232 port binary commands are designed to work in a computer friendly way. Command format is: <command number> <data> <data> ...

Commands range from 0x80 to 0xBF

Commands and formats supported: Commands 0xAD to 0xBF are not used and return '0'

Errors returned: '0'= command not supported '1'= loco address out of range '2'= cab address out of range '3'= data out of range '4'= byte count out of range '!'= command completed successfully

For a complete description of Binary Commands see: www.ncecorporation.com/pdf/bincmds.pdf
