Digital modelcarsystem

The digital modelcarsystem sents orders to the model cars. Every model car has a decoder and receiver coil to get the signal. The digital modelcarsystem generates the signal that is sent to the cars via the transmission system. The position reports are read in so that it registers the movements of the cars. A digital model car system is only complete with the control of “points” for turning off cars, switching traffic lights and possibly other street lighting.

Schematically, the structure is as follows:


The UCCI is the central unit in a digital modelcarsystem that provides communication with the PC, controlling the transmission loops in the road surface, reading in position sensors and controlling OC32s. With the OC32, “turnouts”, traffic lights and various other accessories can be controlled. The capacity of one UCCI is sufficient for a medium-sized layout. This allows approximately 40 meters of road length and up to 64 cars to be controlled (simultaneously).

Another option is to include UCCI in a Dinamo or Dinamo Plug & Play system. A maximum of 16 UCCIs can be included in one system, with which approximately 640 meters of road length can be controlled. This is the solution when a single UCCI control center is too limited for the size of the street plan or when both trains and cars are controlled with one system. In a Dinamo system the connection to the computer is made via an RM-C. The RM-C provides a bus to which the various modules including UCCI and OC32 can be connected.
