 +
 +===== 5. PC plus PC-Software: =====
 +The **Light@Night PC-Software** offers the possibility to **establish** and **link comfortable** all functions for the control of the layout lights and the room ambient lights. The software **generates all common light effects** for the **layout light control** (e.g. **neon lights, gas street lamps, flashing blue lights, light chains, traffic lights ** and many others). Each effect can be **individually assigned** to any of the **max. 280 outputs** of the **layout light control hardware** (as described under 1.). Additionally offers the software a **3D-sound** for the support of the **weather simulation** such as **rain, thunderstorm** and **firework**. The **PC-Software** for the light control **Light@Night** will be supplied together with Manual by Company **[[http://www.railware.de/index.php/LightNight/LightNight.html|Railware]]**.
 +
 +====== Hardware description of the Layout Light Control: ======
 +    * The **Light@Night hardware for the layout light control** consists of one **Light-Interface LI-LAN or LI-LPT for the network (LAN)- or parallel-interface of a PC** and as a **minimum** of one **[[:en:light-display|Light-Display]]**-Module or one **[[:en:light-power|Light-Power]]**-Module which will be connected to the **Light-Interface**.
 +    * **Light-Display**-Modules contain **40 outputs** which can cover a maximum load of up to **0,5 Ampere** each. Therefore are the **Light-Display**-Modules especially **suitable for the control of single incandescent model lamps** or **light emitting diodes**.
 +
 +{{  :de:foto:light-at-night_01.jpg  }}
 +==== The Light-Interface LI-LPT (right) for the parallel-interface and at least one Light-Display-Module (left) for 40 light outputs or one Light-Power-Module (picture below) can be the basic for the layout light control of the PC-Light-Control Light@Night. The Light Interface LI-LPT can be used in connection with the PC-Software Light@Night up to the full version 3.X with all Windows 32-Bit operation systems. ====
 +
 +{{  :de:foto:light-at-night_02.jpg  }}
 +==== The Light-Interface LI-LAN (right) for the Network (LAN)-Interface and at least one Light-Display-Module (left) for 40 light outputs or one Light-Power-Module (picture below) can be the basic for the layout light control of the PC-Light-Control Light@Night. The Light Interface LI-LAN can be used in connection with the PC-Software Light@Night on every Windows operation system (32- and 64-Bit). ====
 +
 +    * **Light-Power**-Modules which contain 24 outputs with a maximum load of 2,5 Ampere each should be preferred whenever **many incandescent model lamps** shall be switched **together at the same time** (e.g. complete street- or train station illumination).
 +
 +{{  :de:cad:light-at-night_19_12.gif  }}
 +==== The Light-Power-Module (left) contains 24 outputs for up to 2,5 Ampere each for the model railway illumination. ====
 +
 +{{  :de:foto:light-at-night_03.jpg  }}
 +    * **Up to 7 Light-Modules (Light-Display or Light-Power)** can be **connected** to the **Light-Interface and combined as required**. Therefore are **between 168 and 280 light outputs** for the **layout light control** available.
 +    * Via the **Light@Night PC-software** is it possible to assign the light **effects** by a mouse click to any output. All common effects will be supported: **neon lights, gas street lamps, flashing lights, light chains, flashing blue lights, traffic lights, rail crossing lights, building sites, dimming lights, headlights, fire, TV- sets, railway control posts and many others**.
 +
 +{{  :de:foto:light-at-night_04.jpg?640x445  }}
 +==== If you visit us on a model fair we can demonstrate many light effects for the layout lights controlled by the PC-Light Control Light@Night. ====
 +
 +    * If you **do not** want to connect the **Light Modules** of the **PC-Light Control Light@Night directly to each other** but intend to **assemble** those at a **larger distance**, you can use the cable **[[:en:zubehoer#connection_cable_for_light-display_and_light-power_module|Kabel L@N 0,5m]]** with a total **length of 0,5 meters**, the cable **[[:en:zubehoer#connection_cable_for_light-display_and_light-power_module|Kabel L@N 1m]]** with a total **length of 1 meters** or the cable **[[:en:zubehoer#connection_cable_for_light-display_and_light-power_module|Kabel L@N 2m]]** with a total **length of 2 meters**. For the **Light-Display from Version 1.7** and for the **Light-Power from Version 1.2** is it possible to use the Patch-Cable as extension cable. This Patch–Cable is available within our program under the order code **[[:en:zubehoer#Connection_cable_for_s88-connections_according_to_s88-N|Kabel-Patch]]** with length of 0,5m, 1m, 2m and 3m.
 +    * The **Light@Night PC-Software can also be used together with any model railway control software** on your PC. Which **model railway software** (e.g. **Railware, TrainController, WinDigipet or WinDigital**) will be used is **not important** because the PC-Light Control **Light@Night executes** the light control **in the background independently** from the railway software.
 +    * The **Light-Interface** will be supplied together with the **connection cable** (1,8m length) for the **parallel-interface** and with a **demonstration version 1.2** of the **Light@Night PC-Software**for the **immediate start** of the system.

 +The **Hardware for the Ambient Room Light Control** consists of **Remote-Dimmer and switches** of the **Standards X10** and **DMX** of the **home installation systems**. **Which hardware** can be especially **implemented** and where to be **purchased** will be described within the **[[:en:dl_lini_interfaces|Supplement Manual]]**, which you can receive together with the **full version from the conpany [[http://www.railware.de/index.php/LightNight/LightNight.html|Railware]]**.
 +
 +====== 3D-Stereoscopic Sound: ======
 +If your **PC is equipped with loudspeakers** or **better with a sound-board** and **external loudspeakers** you will become enthusiastic about the **sound** for the **weather simulation** and the **firework**.
 +
 +====== PC-System requirements: ======
 +The **Light@Night PC-Software** works up to **version 3.X** on almost any PC with a **Windows operating system**. 
 +
 +^Operating system |Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Win 7, Win 8 / 8.1, Win 10 |
 +^CPU |Intel or AMD from 300MHz clock frequency |
 +^Working memory |64 MByte RAM |
 +^Interface to the **Light@Night** hardware |Printer (LPT [%%*%%] )-or network connection (LAN) |
 +
 +If you use **Light@Night PC-Software** together with a model railway **control software** (e.g. **Railware, WinDigipet, TrainController or iTrain**) you have to attend to some **strict specific requirements** because the control software as well as **Light@Night PC-Software** requires some system resources. In this case please find out the system requirements of your model railway control software and attend to the specific instruction.
 +
 +In a doubtful case it could be considerable to use a second probably older PC exclusive for **Light@Night**.
 +
 +In case of a common operation of **Light@Night PC-Software** and a **control-software for the model railway** the following PC-system requirements are necessary:
 +
 +^Operating system |Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Win 7, Win 8 / 8.1, Win 10 |
 +^CPU |Intel or AMD from 800MHz clock frequency |
 +^Working memory |256 MByte RAM |
 +^Interface to the **Light@Night** hardware |Printer(LPT[%%*%%])-or network connection (LAN) |
 +
 +The **Light@Night PC-Software** from **version 4** works on almost any PC with a **Windows operating system**. 
 +
 +^Operating system |Windows Vista, Win 7, Win 8 / 8.1, Win 10 |
 +^CPU |Intel or AMD with 2 CPU cores and better  |
 +^Working memory |1 GByte RAM |
 +^Interface to the **Light@Night** hardware |Network connection (LAN) |
 +
 +
 +[%%*%%] The connection via an USB-adapter is technically not possible. On some few Laptops is it possible that the parallel interface does not comply to the actual valid standards. Instead of the **interface LI-LPT** is it now possible to use the **interface LI-LAN**.
