Since smart phones with touch screens have almost completely replaced the conventional mobile phone, model train enthusiasts and manufacturers face the question how to employ more powerful devices for controlling model trains. As a result of this, many apps have been developed lately, which can be uploaded onto your mobile phone and used for running your trains.
This concept, however, has one disadvantage, namely that smart phones have not been primarily designed for running model trains. Due to the lack of suitable input elements the operator is forced to spend most of the time looking at the display. The limits become quickly obvious so we at ESU had a look at the question on how to utilize the advantages of the smart phone technology and combine it with the needs of model train enthusiasts.
It is with great joy that we now present the results of our considerations. With the new ESU CabControl DCC system you have wireless control of your locomotives, accessories and routes simply by Wi-Fi!
With the 50310 CabControl Integrated Control Unit, advanced model railroading is as simple as ever. With our new system, you have full control over your locomotives, switches and signals just at the tap of a finger. The unit communicates with our Mobile Control II Wireless Controller via wireless LAN. The CabControl’s integrated 7 Amp booster also allows it to power even larger layouts with ease. LokSound decoders equipped with RailComPlus® even register automatically with the system! Running trains has finally caught up with the technology of today!
