Zimo MX1, MX1EC

ContentCommand stationsZimo MX1, MX1EC

ASCII Protocol

The Zimo support is very poor when using the ASCII protocol because it does not provide any way to get sensor events which is a K.O. criterion for running Rocrail in auto mode.
It is only possible if you add a second controller, like the HSI88, to get the needed events.

Supported Loco Decoder Protocols

  • DCC Short (N)
  • Märklin (M)

Supported Accessory Decoder Protocols

  • Default (Z)
  • NMRA-DCC (N)
  • Märklin (M)

Firmware Version 2

To disable sending 12 loco functions set the version field to 2.

Binary Protocol


This option is needed for setting up the decoder information in the Command Station for locos and switches controlled manually.
