program helps you to manage your Digitrax devices connected to the
LocoNet bus and monitor their behaviour. It ensures that all devices
have the correct settings.
The key areas of functionality are:
Smart Configuration of your Command station (DCS100 / Zephyr). Easy to
use settings window that allows you to make a change in a flash.
Configuration of all BDL, PM, DS64 and SE devices connected to
your Loconet. The system stores your default settings for future
reference and allows you to change the setting of any device
instantly. The screen shows the current settings of all devices side
by side for easy reference.
Message viewer. This window displays and counts all sensor and

behaving correctly. The system reports how many messages were lost on

Modern DCC decoders are
complicated beasts to program. The simple idea of "put the address in
CV01" doesn't cope well when you program complicated functions using
combinations of bit patterns. A friendlier interface is needed. There are
programs that provide better ways of programming specific decoders.
Unfortunately, they are limited to specific types of computers, and only
their authors can customize them for new types of decoders.
The DecoderPro symbolic
programmer is meant to improve this. It is configured using text files,
so that it can be adapted to additional decoder types easily. It talks to
the decoders using the JMRI programming interface, so that it can run on
any computer and layout hardware that JMRI has been ported to. It's
freely available for download. And since the code is available via open
source, if you want to improve on it you can.
This software has been
developed on an open Java platform by many experienced DCC users. It
requires Java to be installed on the PC - this is free and download
details are available on the DecoderPro web site.

Highly recommended for
programming locomotive (+ sound) and stationary decoders, and is being
updated regularly, as new decoders are made available.
This is used when
programming the CML product DTM30 used on the layout to manually control
all of the stationary decoders, when RailRoad & Co is not in use. A
simple program with a great user interface, making the programming of
this board very simple. To download, see ->
