5) FAQ / Help:

Can the battery pack of the Measuring Car be removed / changed?

No, the battery pack is permanently installed. If a change of the battery pack should be necessary please turn directly to PIKO.

What must be considered when calibrating the Measuring car?

The "calibration number" for calibrating the distance measurement is a variable for changing an internal counter. If the distance displayed by the measuring car is too small compared to the real distance, the value must be increased (+1, +2, +3....).

If the distance displayed by the measuring car is too large compared to the real distance, the value must be reduced (-1, -2, -3....). The measured distance depends directly on the wheel diameter. This can decrease slightly during the service life. The calibration should therefore be checked from time to time and adjusted if necessary.

The calibration value corresponds to approx. 0.3mm / m. The calibration must always be carried out on a straight measuring section, since inaccuracies can occur in curves due to the rigid axis.

Can the Measuring Car be used on an 3-wire AC layout?

Yes, due to the built-in battery, the car can also be used on 3-wire AC systems. In the AC area, the functions of the car are somewhat limited. Due to the current system, the charging function of the battery, the measurement of voltage and measurement of the digital signal does not work on an AC layout. All other functions (like speed, inclination, slope and distance) are fully usable.

AC wheelsets must not be used!

Can you configure the Measuring Car via WLAN using the ConfigTool?

No, the configuration has to be done with an USB data cable.

Can the Measuring Car App be used with the PIKO SmartController®?

The Measuring Car App can be installed on the PIKO SmartController®. You can now switch between the to Apps (SmartControl / Measuring Car) or use a second SmartController if available.

You can also run both devices with the router of your home network. With help of the ConfigTool you can connect the Measuring Car with your home network.
