PIKO SmartControl Basic Set 55040

PIKO SmartControl Basic Set 55040 - wireless DCC base unit, SmartControl Android touch throttle with motorised rotary speed dial, 2.25A PSU (expandable to 5A), RailCom, RailComPlus, Ethernet, LocoNet, USB.

Suitable for all scales with potential for up to 5A track output, this new wireless digital system gives modern design with familiar Android concepts just like a phone, but with a large motorised throttle dial and easy swipe to change locomotives, access to all functions to F28, and control of accessory decoders.

Each locomotive in the roster can be customised with clear icons for functions and loco image, with support for up to 16,384 locomotives.

Separate programming track output for read/write of CVs.

RailCom and RailComPlus(R) for bi-directional communication/feedback with decoders.

LAN and USB interfaces for connection with computer software including JMRI (acts like ESU ECOS) and for software updates.

External interface for booster and track occupancy modules.

This is our favourite mid-range DCC set, very easy to configure and use - ask for more details!

Additional handsets available to order.
