Product Description

If you want to operate points the "old" way with pushbuttons, and you'd like visual indication of how they are set on a mimic panel?
The DTM30 is a controller to allow exactly this.

Enabling pushbutton control and LED display of accessories on a Digitrax controlled layout. the super tower master uses push button switches & LEDs to provide a control interface "the way it used to be" but all done via DCC & LocoNet: it works with all Digitrax systems.

Key Features:

  • 30 cells per DTM30 board. Each cell can:
    • control 1 point
    • display 1 signal
    • display 2 block detectors
    • display SIGM10/20 or SE8c signals
    • and other functions
  • 24 routes, each with up to 12 points per route.
  • PC programming available
  • Minimal wiring - just power & LocoNet wiring into the panel!

The DTM30 also "Interlocks" with PC layout control programs such as "Railroad & Co". This ensures points can only be changed when it is safe to do so. The local operator at a station can "hold off" PC controlled train movements while shunting!

The DTM30 operates as a loconet device in the same way a throttle does. Through LocoNet, the DTM30 is able to sense the states of points & sensors and can decode the DCC accessory commands that go to accessory decoders. By doing this, the DTM30 can sense the state of points even if they are operated by a different throttle. With any accessory decoder, operation of points by other throttles (e.g. DT300, DT400) will be detected & shown on the panel. This will also be true if a PC software program (e.g. Railroad&Co) operates the points, or if a DCS100 route sets the points.

If the accessory decoder does support feedback (e.g. DAC10/20, DS54, DS64) then the correct point state can be detected even if a local pushbutton input to the accessory decoder is used to change its state.

Want to control your points with a throttle AND a DTM30? No problem - just do it; the DTM30 display will always be correct!

Programming:

To make programming simple, a PC software program "LocoAnalyse" is available to configure the board. This is able to download the settings straight to the board if there is a LocoNet interface available (using an MS100, PR3 or LocoBuffer). If not, a list of "required" CV settings can be generated, and the board can be programmed manually using a programming track & throttle.

What's in the Box?

The DTM30 is supplied with six ribbon connectors and approximately two metres of ribbon cable.

In common with many DCC devices, the function performed by the DTM30 is fully defined by the settings of a number of System Variables (SVs). The functions can also be defined in the “normal” manner using a CV programmer. The settings define the following behaviour of the board. In most cases users will not need to program these settings directly.
