CAN-GCx, GCAxx and GCA-PIxx pcboards and complete sets.

In cooperation with the Rocrail team, Peter Giling developed units, which are easy to construct.
On this page you will find a list of complete part sets, pcboards and programmed processors.
These units are based on self construction.
However, there is, within certain limits, a possibility to buy complete assembled boards.
These units will be constructed for you by amateurs, but the amount of those units and delivery time needs to be discussed separately.
The quality of these hand made units will match the high standard, which will be guaranteed.
All descriptions of PC-boards and kits are available here.

Total system price indication

A few examples for calculations of a total system can be found on this page.

Starter package

It is of course not necessary to buy a complete System , just to experience the 'feeling' and the convidence that this is will be your choice.
Starter packages are available, including every part that is needed to construct the complete network.
If the package you like is not in the list please ask Peter
All Prices are excl. porto.
