Stefan Haack´s Loconet Interface
MS-SH is intended to be an alternative to other PC(RS232) - Loconet
Interface versions you can buy.
The following features hav been added to standard implementations:
The layout has been released as version 0.3a.
The difference to version 0.3 is that first the 9 pin D-type connectors have been replaced by 10 pin connectors. This way one do not need to solder the D-type connectors but can connect the D-type connectors via flat ribbon cable to the pcb and is more flexible in fitting the pcb into the housing.
Finally there is one major thing you need to take care of:
MS-SH always needs to be connected to a PC, as long as it is connected to the Loconet. Otherwise the Loconet signal will be tied to ground.

One (IMPORTANT) information at last: I (unfortunately) am not able to
provide any ready made pcbs or complete assembled modules.
Furthermore I stopped providing any support via email. The design has been proofed working well already during the past four years.
