Digital Train Sets
The future of Model Railway control is here!
The Hornby Digital system differs from the conventional analogue type of control in that it is the individual locomotives that are controlled internally rather than the controlling of a locomotive’s speed and direction by varying the current to the track.
The Hornby ‘Select’ and Hornby ‘Elite’ digital units when connected to the track pass not only a constant 15V AC voltage along the rails but also information signals to all locomotives and accessories that are on or are connected to the track.
Each locomotive that is DCC controlled must have internally fitted a small micro processor based receiver called a decoder.
Hornby Digital offers multiple train control on all parts of a model railway layout from a single controller.
