CV value tables.
Here are a few tables to help in programming of Configuration Variables (CV) that have a mathematical formula to determine the value.
Blue text: Default value.
Lenz - table of CV56, the flash rate for outputs C & D on LE102XF, LE103XF (new version), LE104XF (new version), and LE105XF.
North Coast - table of CV9, PWM period/frequency, not for the new SR decoders.
Soundtraxx - table of CV9, PWM period/frequency.
Zimo - table of CV9, PWM period/frequency. Zimo uses the NMRA recommended formula except for one special case, CV9=0 is 16 kHz.
