Construction kits for LocoNet®, CBUS, RocNet and WIOxx.

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.
All units are based on self construction.
As far as possible, no SMD parts are used, so self assembling is not harder than just the ability to solder.
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.

Pricelist


The pricelist of all articles is here for download.

Starter package

It is of course not necessary to buy a complete System , just to experience the 'feeling' and the confidence 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
