Maards - software N-Digitaal

Maards is nog niet de software van de fabrikant zelf, dat komt nog. Samen met draadloze regelaars komt er een App voor Android en Apple van Ninco. Hier kijk ik naar uit, maar ondertussen ben ik wel aan het kijken wat de mogelijkheden op dit moment zijn.

Er zijn een paar softwarepakketten die Ninco Digitaal al ondersteunen: o.a. UR3.0 en Maards.

Het Maards (al uitgebracht in 2010) softwarepakket wordt met een kabel geleverd. De kabel sluit je direct aan op de outport van de powerbase.



De volgende informatie staat op de site van BRSHobbbies (waar het pakket overigens nu niet verkrijgbaar is) vermeld:

"MAARDS is a full-featured, (R)ace (D)isplay (S)ystem application, designed to be used to display and store race data made available from the OUT port of the Ninco N-Digital console, also referred to as the "power base". The MAARDS application provides two primary race management system (RMS) functions to enhance the experience of digital slot car racing:.

Race Monitor: All of the data displayed on the 2 1/2" x 1 3/8" LCD screen of the N-Digital console during and after a race are displayed by MAARDS on a computer screen. This includes the leader board (race position), lap count, elapsed time and fuel status for up to eight driver/car entries, constantly updated throughout the race. In addition to the visual display, optional audible announcements can be made whenever there is a lead change, status change or a driver is running low on fuel.

Race History and Analysis: At the conclusion of the race the results can be sent from the N-Digital console to the MAARDS application. The results -- including final positions, laps completed, elapsed time and fastest lap -- are displayed on the computer screen and automatically stored in the Race History database.

MAARDS is available as a complete plug and play solution with a high-quality ten foot serial communication cable. Just plug the MINI-DIN 6 end into the N-Digital console and the DB9 end into your computer’s serial port, start the MAARDS application and you’re ready to race.

Specifications
Includes: 1 - software license and 1 - cable.
System Requirements: Windows: Pentium III (minimum)/XP/VISTA, RAM: 512 MB or Macintosh: iMac (minimum)/Mac OS X.4.11/Mac OS X.5.5, RAM: 512 MB.

Note: MAARDS has been tested with the N-Digital V1.05 and later central consoles. Hold down a button on the central console at the same time it is powered up to find the version number displayed on the central console screen (some consoles will display dashes instead of a number which is the same as V1.06)."
