ECoSDetector RC can monitor its 4 track sectors in a special way: with the aid of the
RailCom® technology (“local detector”) one can not only find out if the track is
occupied but also exactly which train is located there (train number detection). Of course,
you must have RailCom® capable locomotive decoders.
which train is located where leads to new functions in conjunction with the route setting feature
of the ECoS: you may, for instance, activate level crossing booms automatically or the train
search for an unoccupied track in the storage yard. The switching inputs respectively track
occupancy sensors are electronically “entprellt“ in order to assure reliable feedback
even in case of poor contact or pretty dirty tracks.
ECoSDetector RC is directly wired to the command station via the EcoSlink bus. Besides the ECoS
command station all types of the Central Station® Reloaded with ESU update are suitable. The
galvanic separation of the bus system and the command station assures best possible reliability
and data transfer to the command station. The command station automatically detects and registers
all ECoSDetector modules. The devices can be comfortably and easily configured with the command
station, which can also be done after installing the devices.
operating software of each ECoSDetector can be updated and expanded to facilitate additional
functions, if necessary: whenever necessary this update will be accomplished automatically by the
command station. Thus your ECoSDetector is technically always up-to-date.
