ABC: Automatic Braking Control
Together with GOLD and SILVER decoders, the new ABC (Automatic Breaking Control) technology facilitates the hardware-oriented controlling of locomotives. With little effort, ABC accomplishes just what model railway enthusiasts crave: precise on-the-spot stopping in front of signals and passage in the opposite direction:
- BM1 facilitates stopping in front of signals
- BM2 facilitates stopping or slow approach in front of signals
- BM3 facilitates assembly of automatic block sections
ABC modules serve to influence track sections in front of signals. Direction-dependent information on the signal status is fed to the locomotive decoder.
What else is ABC capable of?
While the locomotive is located in the asymmetrical voltage sections:
- all functions can still be switched
- programming in operational mode (PoM) is possible
- you can drive reverse away again from the signal
- shunting is possible
- driving over sectioning points does not cause short circuits
"On the right" means "On the right"
When using the BM modules "on the right" means that it is always the right rail in the direction of travel where a rail-break is made when a driving or braking section is defined. Make breaks in the right rail at the beginning and at the end of the braking section. Alternatively, you can use an insulating track connector if there is a track joint at the point in question.
