DCS is a system for controlling your entire layout — multiple sound-equipped engines, switches, and accessories — from one or more wireless hand held controllers. DCS is compatible with all M.T.H.® Proto-Sound® 2.0- or 3.0- equipped locomotives. In O gauge, it is also compatible with locomotives equipped with Lionel® TMCC® and Legacy™, as well as conventional AC-powered engines.

The wireless remote handheld allows any operator to access Proto-Sound 2.0 and 3.0, operate multiple units, play vivid engine and station sounds, program layout operations, access switch and accessory control, program remote uncoupling, synchronized puff and chuff, and lighting, as well as a bevy of speed and throttle control options. This set also comes equipped with a TIU or track interface unit. This unit has an assortment of input features allowing the operator to link up to two AC or DC transformers, add additional AC transformers, program new software features, serial interface (RS-232), AUX power, Proto-Cast audio, AIU input, and Proto-Dispatch. The TIU also comes equipped with 4 output channels, one set for constant-voltage DCS command power, and one for conventional DCS command power. Together, the wireless handheld remote and the track interface unit, offer operators simply the best way to run their model railroad

Rev "L" Notes:

The Rev "L" version of the TIU began shipping in December 2010. The TIU can be identified as as Rev L version by a sticker on the bottom of the TIU case. See the Rev L TIU Details PDF in the manuals section of this product page.
