Control without a digital station or a PC

In short, the operation is as follows: A chip on the print continuously sends DC-Car command to connected infrared LEDs which in turn transfer commands to cars that comes within the range of the infrared LED.

The broadcast command is received and processed by all cars with a DC-Car decoder, this works independently of the decoder address. By connecting the infrared LEDs via switch, contacts, relays etc. to the function module, we can let the cars perform functions without a digital station or computer with software e.c. lights on/off, accelerate/slow down, stop, etc. In the past, there were 8 different modules (A to H). Nowadays we have the function module SW. This unit can simulate one of the 8 command groups by means of a dip switches.

Each module has eight outputs (transmitters) for connecting infrared LEDs, which control the various functions in the cars. The LEDs are placed on the side of the road, where a certain function has to be switched. With the function module you can obtain varied driving behaviour without the use of a digital station. The use of the infrared stop function of a module ensure that the cars decelerates. The cars have a built-in acceleration delay and will therefore slowly speed up again when the stop command is lifted. The functions are so divided between the different command groups that meaningful combinations are always available.

Command group A has general features to steer a simple car:

Connection 1: Speed step 0 (works as the Faller stop coil)

Connection 2: Lighting ON

Connection 3: Lighting OFF

Connection 4: Direction pointer on the left ON

Connection 5: Direction on the right to

Connection 6: Direction pointer OFF

Connection 7: Speed step 14

Connection 8: Speed step 28

Building block B completes building block A.e. the functions of a vehicle for the emergency service:

Connection 1: Speed on lane 0 (works as the Faller stoppool) Connection 2: Alarm lights ON Connection 3: Flashing lights OFF Connection 4: Flashing lights ON Connection 5: Flashing lights OFF Connection 6: Speed cameras ON Connection 7: Speed FROM Connection 8: Speed on lane 28

Building block C has the extensive lighting functions and more lanes. Interesting are the functions lane position +2 and –2. This allows, for example, uphill, more gas or downhill to reduce the speed.

Connection 1: Lighting output 2 TO Connection 2: Lighting output 2 OFF Connection 3: Lighting output 3 AAN Connection 4: Lighting output 3 OUT Of Connection 5: Increase speed by 2 lanes Connection 6: Reduce speed by 2 lanes Connection 7: Speed on lane 10 Connection 8: Speed on lane 21

The building block D makes sense for inserting and inserting and traffic lights. This works with decoders DCO1XF, DC02XF and DC03XF or higher.

Connection 1: Turn off stop and flashing lights (Stop time adjustable d.. CV 108) Connection 2: Stop with left direction indicators on (Stop time adjustable d.. CV 108) Connection 3: Stop right direction indicators on (Stop time adjustable by CV 108) Connection 4: Stop with alarm lights on (Stop time adjustable CV 108) Connection 5: Driving/pulling up with lane as specified in CV 110 and direction indicators FROM Junction 6: Driving/pulling up with lane as specified in CV 110 and direction indicator to the left (blinking time adjustable by means of the CV 109) Connection 6: Driving/moving with lane as specified in CV 110 and direction indicators on the right (blink time adjustable by means of CV 109) Connection 6: Driving/moving up with lane as specified in CV 110 and alarm lights ON (blink time adjustable by means of CV 109)

Dipswitch 5:

A bus stop can be operated with the building block E. This works with decoders DCO1XF, DC02XF and DC03XF or higher.

Connection 1: Speed on lane 0 (works as the Faller stop coil) Connection 2: Bus stops, direction indicators OFF, Indoor lighting ON (Stop time adjustable. CV103) Connection 3: Bus stops, direction indicators OFF, Indoor lighting OFF (Stop time adjustable. CV103) Connection 4: Bus stops, direction indicators right ON, Indoor lighting ON (Stop time adjustable. CV103) Connection 5: Bus stops, Alarm lights ON, Indoor lighting ON (Stop time adjustable. CV103) Connection 6: Bus departs with lane as specified in CV 105, left-hand pointers, (Blink time adjustable by CV106) Connection 7: Bus arrives with lane as specified in CV 102, direction indicators right on, (Blink time adjustable by CV101) Connection 8: Speed on lane 0 (works as the Faller stop coil however, the cars brake slowly)

Functions E2 – E7 are only carried by vehicle types 13, 14 and 15 as specified in CV 100!

Dipswitch 6:

The building block F is needed to disable the anti collision system together with the “Rolling Landstraße” so that the trucks stop in the right place on a wagon. The “Ignore Reed contact” feature is used to, for example, immediately fire brigade can drive over a switched-on stop coil at an intersection. This can only be done if the reed contact is not used as an engine brake.

Connection 1: Anti Collision System Disable Connection 2: Anti Collision System Enable Connection 3: Ignore Reedcontact Connection 4: Read out Reedcontact Connection 5: Turn off light sensor (only with decoder DC0XF) Connection 6: Turn on light sensor (only with decryption DC0XF) Connection 7 and 8: no function

Dipswitch 7:

The building blocks G is a combination of A and B.

Connection 1: Speed on lane 0 (works as the Faller stop coil) Connection 2: Swing lights and strobes TO Connection 3: Swing lights and strobes FROM Junction 4: Direction pointers on the left ON Junction 5: Direction pointers on the right to Connection 6: Direction of pointers FROM Connection 7: Speed on lane 14 Connection 8: Speed on lane 28

Dipswitch 8:

The building blocks H is a combination of A and B. Works with decoders DC0*XF.

Connection 1: Speed on lane 0 (works as the Faller stop coil) Connection 2: Lighting 1, Direction pointers, Flashing lights and speed cameras FROM Ons;expression 3: Lighting 1 ON Connection 4: Direction pointers on the left TO Junction 5: Direction pointers to the right of Connection 6: Flashing lights and speed cameras ON Junction 7: Speed on lane 14 Connection 8: Speed at driving position 28
