Lanbahn Fredi - a WiFi throttle with the same size as the standard FREMO "Fredi".
more info: Lanbahn website - and many thanks to the developers of the orignal "Fred", Olaf Funke and others from FREMO.
XBee Throttle -- a PC board was designed and manufactured - the Lipoly-battery loader is being tested first,
The Selectrix Library for the Arduino was updated to version 2.2b, see Selectrix Arduino - Many Thanks, Reinhard Thamm, for speeding it up and adding a "Train-on-Track-Indicator" example.
The first wifi "LAN-bahn" decoder : Spark.io Decoder. (LAN = Local Area Network, "bahn" = german for "railroad")
Lonstoke West was on display at the "Warley National Show" in Birmingham, see Lonstoke West in Birmingham.
|With a new transport box the "City Litho" factory will be moved to Birmingham and back without damage, hopefully.|
|tinkerforge.com is a nice mikrocontroller kit system. There are lots of sensors and I/O boards - and now there is a "bricklet" which can operate 4 turnout motors.|
|CBUS, Experiments with the CAN-bus and the Arduino.|
|Our new function decoder for Selectrix® with an ATtiny9 - not so easy to solder by hand, at least at my age ...|
|"SX3" can be run on a Raspberry PI|
|"Lonstoke West" was on operation at the "Korntaler Modellbahntage" in the "Alte Lateinschule / Musikschule" Korntal.
Lonstoke West, new photos (NO flash)
|revision 1.0 of sx3-pc was released.|
|the RaspberryPi is a nice hardware for controlling turnouts - without any central station, directly via Wifi... more to come soon: "LANBAHN".|
|continued work on AndroPanel||Definition of the SXnet Protocol - very simple, but useful only for Selectrix.|
|I'm currently working on "AndroPanel", an application for Android tablets for switching turnouts (and 1 loco).|
|there is still analog wiring of model railroads, this photo was taken April 2012|
SX Turnout and Signal Decoder
A simplified version of the SX-Arduino (with Attiny2313) was built to operate Tortoise turnout motors. There will be more info soon on this website...
Selectrix Shield for Arduino
This is a first experimental "shield" for a Selectrix interface for the arduino. More info on the selectrix arduino page.
The "Green Hills Traction" (Uli Leibfarth, Jürgen Petrik), an US prototype O-Scale modular layout, was on display at the German
|new: information about the SX (Selectrix) system and a Java program to control SX with an SRCP server - this enables the control of SX via the Android SRCP client program.|
|several new fotos of "Lonstoke West"|
|I'm currently writing a software for Android Smartphones which can be used to run locos via the SRCP protocol. More (in German) Android SRCP ...|
The location of this years "Narrow Gauge EXPO" was the Pinzgauer Lokalbahn in Austria, close to the Großglockner, Austrias highest mountain. On Sunday, a steam train with an Mh3 attracted visitors - normally modern diesel trains and railcars operate on this narrow gauge (760mm) line.
January 16th and 17th, 2010
... "Lonstoke West" was on display at the Strassenbahnwelt Stuttgart (Stuttgart Tram Museum)...
building an Arduino Throttle
The swiss "LOKI" magazine (Nov 09) is featuring a photo show of the Adliswil US-Convention, with a photo of our fan, supporter and engineer Hedwig.....
We got a second EMU ! see photos of the 2-HAL here.
