EVO Shifter Sample

Does anyone have sample code of how to program AndyMark's EVO shifters? We are using a 2-Cim version. THANKS!

Re: EVO Shifter Sample

What part of the EVO Shifters are you having trouble programming?

I assume it is the shifting pneumatics as it is really the only part that is different from a traditional gearbox.

Do you understand how to control pneumatics normally?

Do you have the shifting cylinders controlled with the same solenoid?

Give us an indication of what part you are having trouble with and we can help you find the right stuff!

Thank you for the reply! Yes, it is the shifting pneumatics that we are questioning. We have programmed pneumatics in the past, so yes we do have some understanding, or at least reference materials to look at. We do have them on the same solenoid.

Re: EVO Shifter Sample

Maybe pick two buttons, one for high gear, another for low gear.
Shifting could then be done like this:

Re: EVO Shifter Sample

Thank you, Mark! I will have my new programmer look at it this afternoon. We are hoping to have this programmed and running sometime tonight. I am very green at programming, and he is completely new, so I am going to ask a very "not-so-smart-sounding" question. I assume that we either program the left or the right side of the sample you posted depending on the type of solenoid we are using?

Re: EVO Shifter Sample

Yea, sorry.
The left side is for a single solenoid (one connection-pair of wires-to the PCM), but it sounds like you have a double solenoid (two connections to the PCM).
So only use the right-side example.

This image is what is called a snippet, meaning you can save the image to your desktop, then drag and drop in into a vi's block diagram and it will become actual code.
Then delete the single solenoid side and update the solenoid name and the button indexes you want to use.
