A Product Concept Overview

LOCOLINC® has been designed to provide model railroaders with a comprehensive control system for the entire layout: locomotives and accessories. LOCOLINC control systems offer the hobbyist an unprecedented level of control realism. These achievements are the result of state-of-the-art engineering design using radio frequency and microprocessor technologies not previously applied to model railroad hobby electronics.

LOCOLINC has been designed as a comprehensive control system, offering features and capabilities model railroad hobbyists have been asking for:
  • Hand-held, wireless control for complete freedom of mobility to a range of 300 feet.
  • A comprehensive control system capable of controlling locomotives as well as accessories on the layout.
  • Simple multiple locomotive unit (MU) operation.
  • Eliminates cumbersome wiring configurations because LOCOLINC uses air (radio waves) rather than the rails as the transmission medium.

LOCOLINC remains the only control system for model railroad hobbyists which allows direct, wireless transmission to each locomotive and accessory on the layout. LOCOLINC controls d.c. devices, a.c. devices via solenoids or relays, and is compatible with battery packs popularly used in outdoor layouts.

LOCOLINC transmits radio frequency signals directly to the locomotive or accessory device being controlled. Unlike other control devices on the market, the LOCOLINC control system
does not use the rails as the transmission medium. LOCOLINC users enjoy full freedom of movement to a distance of minimally 300 feet, with the new Series 200 controller, without tether. Because LOCOLINC does not use the rails for transmission, gone are the tedious block layout schemes with thier switching mechanisms or the tethered multi-conductor bus and layout wiring schemes with their endless tangles of expensive wiring.
