International Toy Fare Nuremberg 2012

We will present our products and their applications between February 1st to 6th 2012 for the second time at the Spielwarenmesse Nürnberg - International Toy Fare Nuremberg. We are looking forward meeting you at our booth!

You'll find us like last year in hall 4A, booth F-223.

During the trade show we will present some news at our booth:

Signal Add-on

Qdecoder with the brand new Signal add-on are signal aspect generators. Besides the "common" Qdecoder features and the enhanced functionality of the all-in-one class this add-on provides plug&play configurations for various signalling systems - e.g. Swiss type, German and Austrian signalling systems are supported.

Such a signal aspect generator can drive signals in mixed configurations as well as turnout drives mixed with signals. It is available as high-side version ZH1 (for signals with common cathode) with 8 terminals, and as low-side version Z1 (for signals with common anode) with 8 or 16 terminals. Most signal manufacturers deliver signals with common anode and a cathode (+) as common return conductor. Furthermode the Signal add-on is avalable for the Z2-Qdecoder series. All Qdecoder with Signal add-on are fully compatible to analog model railway layouts as well and are conrolled by key buttons, reed contacts etc. in this application scenario.

Thus the new signal  aspect generator replaces all up-to-now available pre-configured Qdecoder. See below an overview of supported signalling systems of our newest generation of signal aspect generators:


Futher Cooperation with Signal Manufacturers

neu2012In preparation fo the trade show we established or deepened the cooperation with several European signal modell manufacturers, e.g. new signals and models from SMF Modelle, Henckens Seinen, Modellbau Michalsky, alphamodell and Krois-Modell will be presented at our booth. Provided by  Henckens Seinen we will show some Belgian and Dutch signals, high-end H/V signals from SMF will be presented as well. Modellbau Michalsky delivered  a Hl-signal for the garden railway - controlled by Qdecoder - for the trade show. Furthermode some Swiss-type special signals from MicroScale as well as brand new German and Austrian signal types from alphamodell and Krois-Modell will be shown.

For the future market development we will enforce our cooperation with Krois-Modell for the Austrian market.

The "Qdecoder-Handbuch" - Qdecoder Manual

handbuch_coverAs promised for some time we prepared an universal documentation of the behavior and properties of our products, called the Qdecoder Handbuch. It includes more than 130 pages packed with details - unfortunately most parts of it are written in german language. The chapters about belgian and dutch signals are in english language only.

This book provides tons of information, manuals, how-tos for the application and configuration of Qdecoder, which can be called the most powerful and flexible decoder on the market. Using this Handbuch their should be no problem to apply a Qdecoder to a model railway and to configure it appropiately that it emphasizes the qualitiy of the model railway layout.

The manual is divided in four parts and several chapters. Beginners should start with the first section providing various examples for the usage of a Qdecoder to control turnouts or signals.

The 2nd section presents the operating modes in detail which generate signal aspects.

The 3rd section deals with all the configuration oportunities which are provided by all Qdecoder for their function outputs and presents some examples and hints for the usage of configuration variables (CV).

The last section provides information of the all-in-one class of Qdecoder. The programming of unique (own) signal aspects described in chapter 6 is meant for digital experts. The sequence generator for control of automated succesion of events is presented in chapter 8 and can be applied to various scenarios - beginning with traffic light control to complex illuminated advertising e.g.

Catalogue 2012

In the last months before the trade show we edited our new product catalogue, which is available printed or like all other folders & documentation in our download section.
