  • Trackmate ??

    I had my track down for a few months and rewired the power to the track. Problem now is that when I hit START, the power to the track shuts off, but the timer/ lap counter marks. When I hit pause, the power comes on, but the counters don't mark. Any Ideas?? Thanks for the read

    You have something wonky on the switch settings page.

    There should be a choice for type of switch, and a setting for normally open or normally closed.

    Start with those first.

      The problem is with the start relay selection. You have selected a normally closed relay. Should be normally open.

        Is it possible that the relay you are using has terminals for both a normally-closed and normally-open function, and you've wired the track to the normally-closed terminal?

          Sounds like that is exactly what happened, most relays can be wired either way. The automotive relays that I have seen can't be wired either way. In any case you can go into the Setup menu and change the setting there.

            I wonder if using a normally-closed relay is actually the preferred setup. The track would be powered when timing software is not active (free running), but when the software is active and the race is "paused" the power would not be connected to the track. As long as the control signal sense can be inverted to place the relay in the correct state...

              I use an normally-closed relay for that purpose. I do not have to start the race management system to run the track.

                One of the choices is to "invert" the switches, try that.

                  If you wire in a normally closed track power relay you will have power when Trackmate is not running. Some people wire the relay normally open but have a bypass switch to turn the track power on when Trackmate is not in use. A switch like that is also useful if something seems to be wrong with a car in the middle of a race. You can pause the race and use the bypass to see if the problem is with the track, car or controller.

                    Sorry guys- I've been unavailable for a few days. I appreciate all the advice that you've left me. Hopefully I'll be able to try them out in the near future...
