DEF simulator- new hardware released

A new hardware version of the DEF simulator has been released and can be found here:

https://defsim.myervin.com/canbed-rp...nsor-simulator

Use the above link until the webpage menus can be updated.

It is very similar to the previous canbed release, but uses the newer raspberry pi RP2040 microcontroller.

For those needing the Freightliner connector, Newark.com has the parts in stock. The pins ship from their UK warehouse, but only takes about a week to get.

Do they make units compatible with a ISL 9 on a 2014 Allegro Bus?

No, this is not compatible with a 2014 coach.

Any sensor can fail, that said, itís my understanding that the older ones appear to be more reliable.

Is anyone willing to build one and sell it? I would take this project on but it looks as if I need a Microsoft windows computer and of course I only have a Mac. Iím leaving the USA at the end of June heading for Alaska and could really use one for peace of mind . Private message me at 8133769493 if itís something someone can help me out with.

Nice updated to the parts list, thanks for posting it. I may just build a backup to my backup at those priced. Why replace another failed DEF head?

MacOS programming instructions have been added to the DEF simulator website for the CanBed RP2040 release.

It takes about 90 seconds to download the program into the board. You must know someone who has a Windows computer you could use for a few minutes. I'm not computer savvy and was able to do it, so most should have no issues.

If we built a simulator when the original instructions came out, do we need this one now instead? What is the difference or advantages of this new one? I have a 2017 Allegro Bus on a PowerGlide chassis. Thank you!

Hi Helen, I’ll answer in case David doesn’t see your question. The answer is no, there is no reason for anyone to reprogram their previously built DSS nor is there any need to build a new one. The developer team is just adding new hardware platforms as they become available and can be tested so as to try to avoid delays for new users due to out of stock situations for any particular board. But, other than slight differences due to hardware requirements, the behavior of all of the alternatives is identical.

Actually, in the case of this newest board (the RP2040 controller) it is even quicker. When you plug it in and press a couple of buttons, the board will appear like magic as a USB removable disk drive. You just have to copy the downloaded single .UF2 file and paste it to the drive. There is no more need for the ďprogram canbed XĒ batch file commands nor does it require doing the Hokey Pokey with the USB port numbers like the first CanBed board did.
