Three Questions
« on: February 14, 2013, 12:37:33 AM »
1. Is it necessary for each Upper Part to have a Clicking Plate or just the one for the train?
2. If the Baseplate is 250 x 100 and the Clicking Plate is 150 x 80 what is the ideal size of the Upper Part?
3. If the Upper Part overhangs the Clicking Plate could the antenna (arial) be accommodated in the 3mm gap between the Baseplate and the Upper Part?
I hope to avoid drilling a hole in the Upper Part.

Any thoughts?

John

Dear Train John,

Here are (some) answers:

(1)
As the Clicking Plate is part of the Upper Part, each Upper Part needs to have the Clicking System Plate. We already discussed that in http://www.cnc-network.eu/forum/index.php?topic=433.0 (see reply 14).

(2)
Feel free to modify the Clicking System Plate. Minimum size is 150 x 80, Maximum Size is 250 x 100. It's also allowed to increase the thickness. The size depends on the Upper Part you've designed. We already discussed that in http://www.cnc-network.eu/forum/index.php?topic=433.0 (see reply 16).

(3)
As far as I understand the antenna needs to be placed outside the gap. But to be on the safe side you need to ask the Control System Group for details when they came back from holidays next week.

Many greetings

We all need more details and drawings about the hole for the antenna...
