Layout Control

Realistic model railroad operations require operating signals, central dispatch control, and central and local operation of switches. Our Layout Controller product line makes this easy to setup and operate and is suitable for any scale.

The central dispatch control is based on Central Traffic Control (CTC) panels. The system operates on Windows 10 PCs. The central dispatch operator has control of all switches remotely or can place each switch in Local control.

Signals can be set to operate under Automatic Block Signaling (ABS) or ABS/CTC.

The Layout Controllers communicate with each other and the CTC/Dispatch computer over SABus - a Scaled Automation customized CANBUS implementation. This allows large numbers of Layout Controllers on the system and easy integration to the CTC computer.
