Throttles, Panels with XpressNet

The XpressNet� is a network similar to a computer network. XpressNet� connects several input devices with the command station. Input devices can be manual controls as well as interfaces for connection to a PC or router.

From a technical point of view the XpressNet� is a RS485 gateway, thus beeing an industrial standard. Data are sent with a speed of 62,5 kBaud. The command station assigns time slots to max. 31 input devices, during these time slots a device can sent information to the command station. Thanx to the protocol used the devices may be connected and disconnected on the flight which is for instance profitable when operating a large layout: you can disconnect your manual control and connect it on the other end of the layout without "forgetting" any information. The connection comes by 5-pin DIN plugs or "Western" plugs and for instance the adapter LA152.

Das network is set up with 4 core cable. Two cores supplying the power for the connected devices and two cores processing the data transfer.

There is no special topography recommended for the XpressNet�, but loops may not be built. Lengths up to 1000 meters have already been realised without problems.

The LH90 was developed especially for controlling locomotives. Its operating components are designed and optimised for this purpose.

  • 9999 addresses for digital locomotives
  • Address 0 is reserved for a conventional, analogue locomotive
  • The units, tens, hundreds and thousands of locomotive addresses are entered one after the other
  • A toggle switch serves to determine the direction of travel. If the switch points up, the locomotive moves forward; if the switch points to the centre, the locomotive stops; turning the knob has no effect on the locomotive. If the switch points down, the locomotive moves backward
  • Knob for speed adjustment
  • Emergency stop button serves to stop all locomotives immediately and to switch off the track voltage
  • Facilitates the switching of up to 29 decoder functions (F0 to F28), provided they are supported by the command station used
  • Up to 1000 points, signals, magnetic articles and other accessories can be controlled
  • Set functions in locomotive decoders to continuous or instantaneous operation
  • Double traction and multi traction with individual address
  • Programming on programming track and in operational mode (PoM)
