N-Terminal Demo



From left to right:
CAN-GC3, GCA93, CAN-GC2, GCA93, CAN-GC6/GCA137, CAN-GC4, ID-20, CAN-GC1e.



Replaced LocoNet, OpendDCC and BiDiB with CAN-GC*.
From left to right:
CANCMD, MGV93, CAN-GC2, MGV93, MGV136/137, CAN-GC2, CAN-GC1.
The CANCMD will be replaced as soon as the CAN-GC3 comes available.

Setup Rocrail

First impression of how the plan looks like in Rocview.

Setup servos


Servo setup was easy and is successfull; Tnx to the very good MGV136.
I only forgot to reset the MGV50 after changing inputs to output, which did me wonder why it did not want to program the MGV136… Be warned! ;)
Also the BiDi-GBM is tested and works as expected.

The idea


  • Date: 01-04-2011
  • Dimensions: 140 x 16 x 5,5 cm

The idea is to create a small N-Terminal Station Demo based on testlayout-en.


  • Peco Code 55 rails
  • Relay Servo switch motors
  • The servos will be controlled by the MGV136/137 and the RailCom/Current sens by the OpenDCC BiDiGBM.


  • 7 blocks
  • 8 routes
  • 4 signals
  • 2 block sensors

Not having aluminum profile or an other mount construction I used double-sided adhesive tape: I wonder how long it will last. ;)
(The tape is normally used for mirrors in humid bathrooms.)


Part I

The LocoBuffer capacitor is a little too high and must be dismounted from the PCB. Horizontal, besides the PCB, will be the solution. A lot of wiring is done, but the delivery of the missing servos is pending…
