Hardwares

Detail of hardware instruction

Please check the following instruction which includes assemble and how to solder.

  • DSmain R5 (All-in-one hardware)
  • DSmint controller - The cheapest DCC command station
  • CV read and writer DSbluebox - All in one and standalone CV programmer
  • DS Shield Marklin / DCC Command station expansion board for Arduino UNO.
  • DS shield DOES NOT support raspberry pi. Currently we do not have raspberry pi related products.

    Safety Notes

    Please note the followings.

  • Recommended voltage range: 12V to 18V.
    If you used N gauge, you will use 12V. If H0, use 12V or 15V or 16V or 18V. These voltage is reference.
  • Recommended current range: 1.5A or less
    Maximum absolute current is 3A. Do not exceed 3A temporaly or continuously.
  • Avoid short circuit and over voltage, over temperature. This hardware has protection function but not perfect in any case.
  • This hardware does not ensure to work all of locomotives and DCC or MM2 decoders.
  • Required devicese

  • (if used DSshield) Arduino UNO (compatible one may be available.)
  • Wire to rail
  • DC power supply with cebter plus and output connectr is 2,1x5,5mm. The voltage depends on your model railway system. See the followings.
    If use marklin H0, 18V powersupply and output current is required 2Amp or more.
    If use DCC H0, 12V to 16V power supply and output current is required 2Amp or more.
    If use DCC N, 12V power supply and output current is required 2Amp or more.
