DCC Layout Control

Static decoders to operate points motors and signals plus automation modules including reverse loop modules
Hornby OO DCC Point Conversion Clips R8232
These clips are designed to fit into Hornby points to convert the point for DCC operation. The clip feeds track power through the point, keeping both diverging tracks live at all times.

E-Z Command DCC Reverse Loop Module 36-525
The E-Z Command Reversing Loop Module senses the train as it moves along the loop and automatically switches polarity to allow reverse loop travel with suitable DCC systems.
Please note that this is a module for DCC digital command control systems only and has not been designed for use with analogue 12v DC control systems where the voltage is controlled.

    The DCC80 Autofrog is a simple switch that automatically changes the frog polarity on your DCC layout. In most situations, the use of electrofrog points is recommended on digital layouts to ensure reliability but this can make extra switching more complicated than it needs to be. Allow us to introduce you to the Autofrog. Wiring the DCC80 is simple. There are three solder connections on the board, 2 connections labelled “R” - which you should connect to your rails or your bus and 1 connection labelled “F” which you connect to the frog input wire.

    Hornby Digital Accessory Decoder R8247
    Being able to change points and operate accessories with the minimum of wiring and fuss is one of the main attractions of digital control and the Hornby Accessory and Point Decoder allows the operator to do just that.  Wiring points up in the old analogue fashion can be quite a daunting exercise.

    On some layouts which have numerous points this can mean that there are metres upon metres of cabling plus a whole bank of switches. Hours can be spent carefully wiring up the points only to find that there is a fault or an intermittent connection which means more hours of crawling about on the floor trying to locate the problem.

    With the Hornby digital system these horrors can be but a distant memory.

    The Hornby R8247 Accessory/Point Decoder can be programmed to accommodate four point motors or solenoid operated accessories, plus other electrical accessories that require a constant or delayed current flow, for example a turntable.

    Connection of the points or accessories to the Hornby Accessory/Point Decoder is straightforward.  The four outputs are factory set for the operation of solenoid (point) motors, however, by adjusting the CV settings of each output a graduation of varying ‘bursts’ of current up to a constant current (turntable motor operation, lighting, etc.) can be obtained for each individual output.

    Hornby Digital Point Motor Decoder R8216
    Point decoder with four independently controlled outputs.
    The Hornby Point Decoder can be programmed to accommodate four point motors or solenoid operated accessories like semaphore signals or electric uncoupling ramps with the minimum of trouble. Connection of the points or accessories to the Hornby Accessory/Point Decoder is straightforward. 3 wires from the point motor (solenoid) are connected to the first three screw terminals on the decoder.
    The next solenoid is connected to the second three terminals,with the following two solenoids being connected in the same way as the previous two. Once the solenoids are connected two wires are then plugged into the track using the Hornby R602 Power Connecting Clip, the location of which can be anywhere within reason that is convenient. Allocating addresses to the four points is then just as simple as pressing up to 4 buttons.
    All Hornby points are “self – isolating”. To obtain the best from the Hornby Digital system it is recommended that all points arc made “live” by attaching 2 x R8232 DCC Electro Point Clips to each point. A quantity of these clips are included in every Hornby Digital set, additional clips are available.

    Lenz LS100 Switch Module 4 Points/Signals Feedback 11100
    Lenz 11100 LS100 Accessory decoder for 4 turnouts with feedback.
    Accessory decoders are the link between your NMRA DCC system and your functional devices (that is turnouts, signals, uncouplers, etc.) on your model train layout.
    Accessory decoders receive commands sent from the command station via the power station and activate the drives of turnouts or other switching devices. For DIGITAL plus systems these switching commands are activated from input devices, such as, hand held controller LH100 or LH90 (or in connection with another, compatible digital system).
    Dimensions: approximately 3.5 x 3.5” (90 x 90 mm)
    3 Amp Maximum 16 v AC Power input needed.

    Must be ordered - delivery as soon as possible.

    LB101 reports occupancy status in track sections to the encoder LR101. It operates on the so called "current sensing principle", that is there is always feedback when a current user is in the monitored track section (detection section)

    Static or Accessory decoders are designed to provide control over an electrically-worked accessory like a point motor. Just like a locomotive decoder they have an address for that point to which the control handset can send instructions to change the route.
    Reverse loop modules are a very useful way of avoiding short-circuits when sections of track may have opposing polarities. The outer rail going around a reverse loop will obviously start on the left and come back on the right, by isolating the track within the loop and feeding power through the module the polarity is automatically switched as the train exits the loop. This feature is useful for junctions and cross-overs, you don't need to worry about which train the electrics are set for!

    Please note, we have experienced delays in the supply of these modules from all manufacturers. Please email enquiries@antics.ltd.uk or call us on 01453 825381 so we can check on current availability.
