Product Description

... bringing easy model railway control into the 21st century!

The ACE-2 is a fully-featured, but low-cost, DCC controller which has been designed to provide a very “user-friendly” interface.

It offers many features found on “high-end” units but its novel touchscreen interface design has led to lower manufacturing costs and, therefore, a lower price and higher specification controller to the end user!

How it works………

The ACE-2 uses a touch screen arrangement where the main operating modes are selected using clearly-labelled buttons below the display. Trains, points and signals are then controlled from their respective screen using the displayed on screen buttons, and sliders.

For modellers who prefer a more traditional approach to train control, we also offer the DRIVER handset (available separately). Up to four of these low-cost handsets may be plugged into the ACE, providing a rotary knob for speed control and a slide switch for forward/reverse. Five buttons are also included for train functions such as lights, horn etc.
