STP can be used to simply operate turnouts and signals but also in semi or fully automated mode. In semi automatic mode the operator selects a route by using start and target buttons on screen. STP then checks all the blocks the train is supposed to drive through best police radar detector. If blocks are not occupied and not in conflict with other routes, STP then sets all the needed switches, signals etc. in the right position and signals the Zimo block control units to take over train operation. In fully automatic operation STP selects start and target buttons on its own based on train location, and user defined program inputs. Automated staging yards, platform track selection for specific trains (e.g goods versus passenger trains) with user definable delay and stop times are possible! Every engine remains under full control of the cab operator , at all times!
LokPilot – is the world smallest multi protocol decoder.
This decoder automatically conforms to either NMRA-DCC, Motorola, DC or even AC power!
The decoder is short circuit protected not only on the motor side cheap radar gun but also for function outputs.
Just as the LokSound decoder, the LokPilot uses high frequency motor control and back-EMF that results in an absolute smooth and quiet running engine!
This decoder will not be obsolete! It contains a flash EPROM and can easily be updated when changes in software become available. A programmer will be available soon.
This is the only decoder that recognizes how many speed steps Your command station uses. Whether it is 14, 28 or 128 steps, the decoder adjusts itself automatically!
The LokProgrammer is connected to a serial port at the PC. We developed a user friendly software based on Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows ME.
Any digital recording (.wav file) can be used to download on to a LokSound2 or LokSoundXL decoder.
The program allows you to change just a single file (e.g. a horn or maybe just one steam chuff) or record a complete new sound! Maybe you want to hear yourself on it, yelling “All a board”. It is extremely user friendly and easy to work with.
Additionally all CV settings of a LokSound, LokSoundXL, LokPilot or LokPilotDCC decoder can be read/written and stored in your PC, for future reference.
At the moment it is only available in German. An English version is in the works!
The Concept – The concept of DCC which allows “almost real” replication of the operations of full size trains has been around for long enough for many modelers to adopt and implement top 3 magnum the advantages of the system. Truly independent control of engines on the same track had been sought for a long time and DCC allows that kind of control. The advances in DCC decoders – which seem to be getting smaller and more sophisticated at every turn – lead to the fulfillment of many model railroaders’ dream of combining DCC with sound.
