Since the start of Domburg Train Support, we have regularly been confronted with challenges for which there was not yet a suitable solution on the market. I did something about this together with Vincent Bogers. Vincent worked out my ideas electronically and let me manufacture the products. With the series of products below, we hope to help the model tracker. Below the products are explained and provided with text, explanation, manuals and tutorials.
DTS has developed the iTrain Remote in collaboration with Berros. A virtual interface that allows manual control within iTrain with a hand controller.
With the virtual interface you can operate locomotives and accessories directly in the software instead of via a central unit. This allows you to control all components regardless of the interface to which they are connected. This solution also allows users of the hybrid Dinamo control system to shunt with analog locomotives!
By using LocoNet hand controllers you can also see real-time speeds of the loc on the hand control and you are able to intervene and influence the speeds during automatic driving, without having to stop the automatic routing.
During shunting movements, iTrain sets the selected locomotive to manual control, if you let the locomotive run, iTrain reserves the points you set and the block after the points. All train traffic will be automatically stopped and resumed once you have arrived in the next block.
In short, DTS iTrain Remote and iTrain 5 offer you a playful model railway!
Domburg Train Support offers you the perfect control of your model railway with iTrain Software. No more hassle with desktop pen that gets in the way, laptops that are quite expensive and slow. You probably recognize that these solutions are not ideal, your cables break, laptops' batteries stop and most of all you often have a small screen.
The iTrainPC is based on small computers that you can give a permanent place on your model railway. As a result, you no longer suffer from cords and defects. By using these mini computers you can also use large screens, but also multiple screens and even control your marshalling grounds with touch screens.
We supply all systems ready-made, with iTrain already installed and if desired we can enter your license immediately. If you do not have an iTrain license, we can also provide it for you.
See here for the iTrain licenses
You can expand the systems with various options such as keyboards, memory extensions, displays and various other applications.
Did you know that if your computer breaks down, you will also lose your iTrain files?
We always advise you to use your layout and images from a cloud or external storage in iTrain. You specify your basic path to these storage solutions in iTrain. For this we offer a Cloud solution so that your iTrain file is always securely stored in a Cloud storage. Our cloud solution uses the OwnCloud program, this is a subscription service that you pay us every year. If you prefer not to have this, which we can well imagine, then we also offer external storage to securely store your iTrain files.
Analogue Servo Controll ASB
There is much to do about the use of servos. And that is not entirely unjustified because a servo is not only cheap but also reliable and energy efficient. But to operate a servo you need electronics, and that is the problem for many model railroaders. Programming a servo decoder is cumbersome and with an OC32 you are stuck with software. And what if you want to operate a servo manually because you do not control the layout using a computer.
There are manual servo controllers on the market and self-build is also possible, but none of them has anything that makes the ASB so unique. Below are the benefits that make the controller so unique:
- No computer required.
- Two servos that are easy to adjust to middle position, left, right and speed.
- Each servo can use its maximum range.
- Each servo has a relay switch thats activated on the servo middle position.
- Each relay has two potential-free rocker contacts for frog-polarization or feedback purposes
- Each servo can be switched with a switch
- Each servo can be controlled digitally with a switching decoder
The ASB can thus be used to manually operate a switch or signal, but also via a dcc decoder. The principle is simple via two contacts. One contact sends a signal and when it comes back via a switch, the servo switches to the next position. if the signal disappears again, it will return.
No more hassle, therefore, with decoders to be set, programming via a multimaus or central, never having the maximum result available .....
Areverse loop solution from our own soil. Very easy to use, cheap and simple in design. This reverse loop module works 100% on current detection and controls this over 3 sections regardless of the direction of travel.
- Full current detection
- 3 sections, the middle of which has the length of the longest train
- To be supplied via an AC, DC or DCC voltage up to a maximum of 35V
- Each section switches an output based on current detection
- The switching outputs can be used freely for occupancy reporting or switching of any electronics
- The module works stand-alone and does not have to be in contact with a central unit, making the module usable even if you do not use a digital central unit.
With a sales price of € 30, this module is the cheapest in its class, and because it is an own product you can expect fast service and immediate response to problems.
Interior lighting in carriages, who doesn't want that. Until recently, not everyone became warm because of some disadvantages. For example, it is difficult to provide an LED strip with buffer and rectifier electronics so that it does not blink and is suitable for both analog and digital use. Another option was to purchase a ready-made strip that often cannot be shortened to less than 10 centimeters. Diffuse light is also difficult to make with a fixed strip.
Until the VVP was brought to our attention. A very small print with rectifier, buffer circuit, dimmer and voltage regulator. An ideal solution to provide every carriage with beautiful stably dimmed interior lighting. The VVP can also be used on a function output of a decoder. For example, to prevent the pwm from becoming visible during extreme dimming.
Can feed any LED strip regardless of brand, type or length.
With a size of 16 x 11 x 5 mm, it fits in any carriage out of sight.
The buffer can be expanded as desired to the maximum capacity you can use for capacitors.
Suitable for both analogue and digital company.
Maximum load of 25V.
Flashing interior lighting and expensive strips are a thing of the past with the VVP.
You probably have a situation where you want a 5 or 12 Volt voltage but only have a higher voltage. Thanks to the VSP, you do not have to purchase a new power supply. This print turns every offered DC voltage into a stable 5 or 12V on site. The voltage regulator may be loaded up to 1 amp.
The VSP-DC is made especially for Dinamo Classic, a VSP print with both the 5V and the 12V voltage regulator. This makes it possible to feed a TM-H Block card with Vrs only. By inserting the VSP-DC into the K1 of the TM-H, the block card is offered a stable 5v, 12v and Vrs.
A relay card with four double-pole relays. That sounds very complicated, but it isn't. With the HPP4, connecting heart piece polarization or any other circuit becomes an easy job. With the clear explanation in the manual, the connection of various circuits can be done well.
What makes the HPP4 so special:
All relays have a common V +, the V- is switched so that it can be used universally.
All relays have a status message via a red LED.
All relays have two changeover contacts.
The indication for point polarization is clearly indicated: P for Point piece, A and B for the tracks.
All relays have an extinguishing diode.
Available with 5V and 12V relays.
Available as a kit or assembled.
Sturdy terminals and durable components guarantee a long service life and re-use.
Stuttering locomotives due to poor contact is a thing of the past with the LocBuffer. It is not a new concept, we have not invented this wheel, but we have greatly improved it. The use of SMD materials makes it possible to process a capacitor circuit even in the smallest scales.
Fully executed smd.
Choose from Tantalum or Ceramic capacitors.
Charging device for avoiding peak loads and yet quickly discharging.
Available in 16V and 25V versions.
Programming decoder is a very difficult job, first you have to find out what brand and type there is in the locomotive. Then search for the manual and if you are unlucky you will get a whole book to work through. And if you program incorrectly, everything about the decoder is wrong and you can start again.
Many will recognize this or see it as a reason not to start. With the arrival of the Sprog this is over:
Programming via the computer
You build a database of your digital park.
You have a backup of the decoder in the database.
The software recognizes the brand and type of decoder.
Each type of decoder has its own datasheet with all institutions divided into categories.
All settings have been translated from CV to text.
The software is in Dutch.
You will receive this with the Sprog on a USB stick including all manuals.
Almost all DCC decoders are processed in the software which is updated monthly.
