R32, 38, 44 and 46 LEDs

Recommended Posts

hey mates got (2) question

 

How does a C/r or t/o change the LED roll signs on the R44/46 and the front/back R32/38 LEDs if there is no computer to a the route/destinations

 

and finally how would they add new routes and destinations to them,

 

do they open up the LEDs or sumin

 

just curious =)~~

 

PS Yes I know the 32/38 doesnt have LEDs im not a n00b :D:(

The R-44 and R-46 have codes the C/R punch in on a box!

its not really a computer... just a box that can be programed with 2 digits representing preset letter. I.e 01=A 03=C and so forth.

 

Its in all the T/O cabs

There is a keyboard box inside the 44/46 cab. The C/R or T/O has to enter the passcode, then enter the proper sign code (anywhere from 1 to 4 digits) in order to display the proper sign. New routes and destinations can be programmed into the system via a cable and a laptop.

 

The 32/38 end sign is simple technology. It's a twirl-a-whirl dial with A-Z, 0-9, test and blank on it. You turn the dial to the setting you want and voilà. Obviously you can't add new signs onto this type of outmoded technology.

same thing - the codes go from 1-99. Line routes are also in there as well. The boxes are a little different than the 32/38s though. Ill get a picture of them tomorrow if I remember.

Thanks and ducman998r too- I didnt notice that

 

Would the R44/46 take maybe the same LEDs from the 142s and later? or those need computers?

IIRC, the ones in the R44/46 are similar to the sign controls in a bus.

 

I remember seeing a pic of the R32/38 controls before, but I forgot where it was.

Are you familiar with the interface that the system uses to communicate? Is it just a serial connection?

Nah, i wont think an R44 or R46 will run with the (Q) rollsign, yet i would like see it.

 

jus after da terrorist attacks, da (Q) was extended to continental, replacing da (R) in manhattan (from canal) nd queens. during dat time, not only hippos were used, but also 46s. so yes, there were rollsigns. in fact i saw them myself at 57th street once, wen i was on da <Q>.
