The DCC controller and command station is the core of the Command Control system, sending the operators' instructions to DCC decoder fitted locomotives to control direction, speed, acceleration and stopping of each train. The controllers will provide enough power to run more than one train simultaneously, ideal for a growing layout as there is no need for extra controllers as track circuits are added.

Bachmanns' budget price EZ-Command unit is excellent for small layouts and trying out DCC. Up to 10 locomotives can be addressed, with 2-3 able to run simultaneously.
Hornby's entry level Select and twin-control Elite offer similar capabilities, the Elites' two control knobs making it easy to drive two trains at once.
Even these entry level controllers have function control features giving access to lighting control and the base range of sounds from sound decoders.

The more capable Bachmann Dynamis system has a wireless walk-around facility combined with the ability to address up to 9999 locomotive or accessory decoders.
For those wanting to exploit the full flexibility of DCC the Lenz LH90/LH100 and Gaugemaster Prodigy controllers are a good choice. These reliable, powerful and feature rich DCC controllers are ideal for expanding layouts and locomotive fleets.

The Lenz-developed data communications system formed the basis of the first NMRA standards for DCC. The company has always been at the forefront of development and Lenz systems remain popular with experienced users.

Set 100 is a starter set comprising one LH100 walk-around handset, a LVZ100 5 amps command station/amplifier and full instruction manuals for setup and operation of the system. Note : A mains transformer is required.

The LH100 is a tethered (cable connected) walk-around handset with a push-button keypad. A calculator style numerical pad is provided for locomotive or accessory decoder selection, with fucntion control selector alongside. Above this are the direction and speed control buttons, with slow step-by-step (for pulling away from a station) or rapid (to get trains out of the fiddle yard quickly) acceleration/deceleration options. The LCD screen display provides a full reading of the speed/direction and function status of the locomotive being controlled

4 digit addressing is available, giving control of up to 256 locomotive and 999 accessory decoders. All forms of programming are supported including advanced one step address programming. The numerical keypad makes CV programming with the LH100 easier than with the LH90 and detailed functions can be defined. The LH100 can create momentary functions on a per function per locomotive basis and XpressNet handsets including the knob control LH90 can take advantage of any available momentary functions once set up.
The LZV100 command station will support up to 31 handsets from Lenz or any other manufacturer using the Lenz XpressNet system.

The Set 100 is recommended for DCC enthusiasts wanting to exploit full decoder configuration capabilities. LH90 and other XpressNet handsets can be added as control handsets, only one LH100 handset is needed as the 'master' for programming.
