LocoRCD, LocoRCD2 and RailCom Function decoder

 

LocoRCD is a Current Sensor that also read data transmitted from Train RailCom decoders. The train addresses and the occupied message gets reported on Loconet and can then be displayed on the PC or LocoView. LocoRCD can also be equipped with a Display as an option to let see address and possibly other data.

LocoRCD2 is a Dual Current Sensor that also read data transmitted from Train RailCom decoders. The train addresses and the occupied message gets reported on Loconet and can then be displayed on the PC or a LocoView. The LocoRCD2 also includes a possibility for train Influence, for trains who have a Railcom decoder. This may slow down the train, a stops a certain and then continue in the same or opposite direction except the corresponding signal permitting. This also allows to design with a simple shuttle service between stops for which no PC is needed.

Where to place a LocoRCD or LocoRCD2?

- On a block where you're placing your locomotives on the layout. The locomotives will then sign up or unsubscribe.
- On a block at a transition from a zone that is not PC controlled, to a zone that is controlled by a PC with current sensors. The locomotive will then sign up and be further controlled by the PC.
- On a block in a station where you want shunting. A LocoIO with a LocoView will give you the train address on a panel than you then can select on a hand controller.
- With the Display option on a programming track (only for LocoRCD).
- With the train Influence systems, can you drive trains and do them stop (only for LocoRCD2).
