Massoth Dimax IRC/IR Starter Set

Today, large modern railways use location-specific systems to monitor and control the behavior of passing trains by transferring location-relevant data from the track to the train. For instance,they have used these location-specific systems to monitor and insure that a “STOP” has not been exceeded.

The Massoth Intermittent Train Control (ITC) / Infrared (IR) system is a location-specific train control system for garden railways. It is an innovative way to monitor and control a DCC-decoder-equipped locomotive operating on a digital track from a specific location on the track. The system uses infrared signals and operates independently from the digital track signal.

The ITC/IR system consists of an ITC/IR signal decoder, which is installed at a specific location on the track, and an ITC/IR receiver, which is installed in a locomotive and connected to its existing DCC decoder. Infrared signals are transmitted from signal-decoders on the track to the IR-Receivers in the passing trains. The system requires minimal wiring and track power is sufficient for operation.

The ITC/IR system can handle both simple and complex signals; it can trigger functions such as lights, smoke and sounds. The system can activate functions directly, or by using their mapped function key numbers. It can trigger automatically timed functions such a station stops or shuttle operations, and it can trigger real position-related commands such as an automatic stop at red signal,or an automatic start at a green light

The DiMAX ITC/IR system offers switching signals and related train control, braking and stopping without additional modules, position detection of the locomotive and feedback without track contacts or feedback modules, and triggering all kinds of sound functions without track magnets or reed switches.
