LocoNet Interface Overview

The IoTT Loconet Interface breakout board connects a LocoNet network to a microcontroller running on 3.3V or 5V.

Buy it on Tindie

On the input side, two RJ12 connectors allow for daisy-chaining the LocoNet network cables 

The microcontroller side features a Grove port connector (digital type) with 4 pins:

Pin 1: LocoNet RxD

Pin 2: LocoNet TxD

Pin 3: VCC (either 5V or 3.3V)

Pin 4: GND

See this article for more information on the Grove port system: https://wiki.seeedstudio.com/Grove_System/

The DC power jack is used to make the LocoNet breakout board a LocoNet terminator. If a 12V DC power supply is connected to the jack, the breakout board will provide the current source to pull up the LocoNet signal according to LocoNet specifications. Use this feature to create local LocoNet compatible networks e.g. for accessory decoders, block detectors etc.

The IoTT LocoNet interface can be connected to the Grove port of the IoTT Stick and provides bidirectional communication from the IoTT Stick to LocoNet.
