Complete kit for building the LocoRCD2 HDM20E 10/18A
LocoRCD2 is a current sensor that also reads data sent by the RailCom train decoders. The train address and the occupancy report are reported on Loconet and can then be displayed on the PC or on a LocoView.
The LocoRCD2 also contains a possibility of train influence, for trains that Railcom have a decoder. The train can brake, stop for a certain time and then continue driving in the same or opposite direction, provided that the accompanying signal allows it. This also allows to design a simple shuttle service between stops that does not require a PC.
Where to place a LocoRCD or LocoRCD2?
– On a block where you place or take locomotives on your track. They can then log in or log out.
– On a partition at a transition from a zone that has no PC control to a zone controlled by a PC with current sensors. The locomotive will then register and continue to be controlled by the PC.
– On a block in a station where they want to shunt with a hand controller. A LocoIO with a Locoview connected to it can indicate the digital address of the Locomotive on a panel.
– With the train influence, you can make trains run around and stop without using a PC.
