DCC++ BASE STATION is a C++ program written by Gregg E. Berman for the Arduino Uno and Arduino Mega using the Arduino IDE 1.6.6 or higher.
A standard Arduino Uno or Arduino Mega with an Arduino motor shield (as well as others) can be configured a fully-functioning Digital Command Control Command Station with integrated Booster that conforms to the current NMRA DCC standards.
DCC++ BASE STATION supports:
- Two and Four Digit addressing
- Simultaneous control of multiple locomotives
- 128 speed steps
- Functions F0-F28
- Activate/de-activate accessory functions using 512 addresses, each * with 4 sub-addresses
- Optional functionality to monitor and store of the status of turnouts
- Programming on the Main
- write configuration variables
- Programming Track
- read CVs
Controlled with simple text commands via the Arduino's serial interface, or other supported interfaces. When compiled for the Arduino Mega, communications can be via Ethernet. DCC++ Controller, (available separately) a configurable graphic interface to the DCC++ Base Station.
The DCC++ system consists of a DCC++ Base Station and DCC++ Controller.
The DCC++ Base Station consists of an Arduino microcontroller fitted with an Arduino Motor Shield that can be connected directly to the tracks of a model railroad.
The DCC++ Controller provides operators with a customizable GUI to control their model railroad. Written in Java using the Processing graphics library and IDE and communicates with the DCC++ Base Station via a standard serial connection over a USB cable or wireless over BlueTooth.
