Can you run your ASC2 6-14182 through your LCS Serial Converter 6-81326?

I have my ASC2 hooked up to some accessories and 2 uncoupling tracks.  I have to operate these via my Cab2 remote.  I would like to control them also via my I Pad.  Has anyone ever hooked up the ASC2 6-14182 (Not to be confused with the LCS version 6-81639)?  I would like to avoid having to purchase the LCS version to make this work.  If anyone has wired this, please advise how.  Thanks.

Dave,

I tried adding two wires (Com to Com and Out to Dat) from the Ser 2 to my TMCC ASC controller. I added the two wires to the other wires as seen in pic. These other two wires come from my OTC. I tried adding a switch on my I Pad to get the accessories to fire, but it would not work. What am I missing? Pic has my current set up.  Thanks for any help. Also note the DB9 connector which is tied in from the command base.  Hmmm? Any suggestions on switching wire.  The Ser 2 in the upper part of the pic is tied in, but empty.

What do you mean tied in to the Command Base? A secondary command base? The Command Base should be attached to the LCS chain through the PDI using the Y-cable: 6-81499 http://www.lionel.com/products...ower-supply-6-81499/

Here is the diagram which I cannot get my IPAD to work.  Please shed some light.  What am I missing?

An example of one of my accessories which works currently through my Cab 1 remote is my water tower.  It is programmed on ACC 3, Aux 1 or Aux 2(Depending if I want a brief deployment or a steady deployment).  It works fine with the remote, which goes through the ASC, but cannot get it to work as an accessory on the IPAD with this configuration.  I tried it on the IPAD as a push button.

You have too much connected to a single SER2. Looks like you have an ASC, OTC, and TPC 400 all connected to one SER2. I recommend additional SER2 units for each. Then daisy chain them together using PDI cables. See example below from the manual.
