I have just been informed by the manufacturer of the above controller that they will not be developing the PC interface, as has been promised for a number of years.  Consequently the laptop and connecting cable that has been sat next to my controller with a layout diagram drawn up in Big Bear is no longer going to be able to do what I want it to do and the over £300.00 invested in the Sig-Na Track has been a waste of money.

Does anyone know if there is any way in which the Ace 2 can be adapted or modified to enable it to communicate with a PC?

Hi,
Would this be the information about the Company?  It looks rather unfortunate for all concerned, but at least straightforward information.

They are at Wigan show next weekend, so more information may be available there.

If you had NCE your Bigbear program, and laptop would then work.
But i`am sure your probably aware of this.
Hope you get it sorted out.

John, I decided to take the plunge and went for an ESU Ecos controller.  This doesn't actually need a laptop as I can create a layout diagram on the screen and operate the points and accessories from that.  If I wanted to go down the route of software control I could connect to a laptop but with the Ecos I don't feel the need for it.

Thanks for your thoughts though.

No problem.
just a thought ( you could use your sig-na track with your ecos)

I did think of that John, but then realised i would simply have two units doing the same thing.  The Ecos is actually very comprehensive and seems to be capable of doing everything I need of it so it makes sense to keep the control area a bit less full.
