Overview LDT Digital-Compendium!


Meanwhile there are several digital central stations available on the market. It is not only a matter for the beginner to decide which components are suitable for the switching and feedback reports to the particular central unit. The new LDT Digital-Compendium shall help you to receive an overlook about the requirements and assure the continual control about your desired model railway layout.
The basic of our LDT Digital-Compendium are our Sample Connections, which are a valuable help for model railroader for planning and realization of digital model railroad layouts since several years.

  • Our first chapter contains the 3 ring conductors of every digital layout as well as the required wire cross sections and the switching of the first turnouts.
  • Within the second chapter you can obtain the information how to use the Light-Signal Decoder LS-DEC for the digital switching of your light signals.
  • The third section describes the connection of a switchboard panel within a layout with control by a model railway software. The switchboard panel will be completely integrated within the software control.Steuerung integriert.
  • How to proceed with the set-up of turntables with the Turntable-Decoder TT-DEC and TT-DEC-R within your Model-Railway software can be found at the chapter 4 and 5.
  • Within the first article to the subject: 'Implementing the Feedback-Reports via the HSI-88 / HSI-88-USB into the Model Railroad-Software' Thomas Arlitt describes the process for the TrainController(™) at the chapter 6.
  • At chapter 7 you can get information about the digital switching of Viessmann semaphore signals with pistons drive units.

Further chapters for the LDT Digital-Compendium will follow.
