Description

Imagine having control over your model railroad from any iOS phone or tablet. How much more convenient would operating your model railroad be with the same device you use throughout your daily life? The large, bright full-color screens found on today's smart phones and tablets are perfect for accessing the DCS features found inside your Proto-Sound 2.0 and 3.0 locomotives. Better yet, the expanded range and speed of wifi would ensure that your trains respond to DCS commands faster and more reliably than ever before.

When paired with M.T.H.'s DCS App and our new DCS WiFi Module, you no longer have to imagine controlling your model railroad with your phone, you can!

The DCS WiFi Module plugs into any DCS Track Interface Unit (TIU) and provides the user with wifi control over the layout when used with the M.T.H. DCS Mobile App. Setup is simple and quick and the module can be configured as a stand alone unit or easily combined into an existing wifi network.

 Free in iOS App Store
