USB Configurable Arduino DDC Servo & Accessory Decoder: Add a Port to a Servo to Switch Electrofrog Polarity

When a port is configured as a servo, we have the option to also configure one or even two outputs to go along with it. This can be used for many different purposes, but the main application of the extra outputs is to switch a relay to accommodate a so called ‘electrofrog’ turnout. These turnouts … Continue reading

USB Configurable Arduino DDC Servo & Accessory Decoder – ArCoMoRa 4 – Configure and Tune Servos

In the 2 previous videos we configured ports as an accessory. In this video we’ll have a look at how to configure a port to control a servo motor via a DCC address. First, of course, we have to connect a servo to one of the ports. When we solder our DCCnext we can decide … Continue reading

USB Configurable Arduino DDC Servo & Accessory Decoder – ArCoMoRa 2 – Configure an On Off Accessory

Now that we installed the Windows software (see previous video) and uploaded the MARDEC sketch to a DCCnext or to an Arduino, we can start to configure the 16 available ports to do what we want them to do. The video shows an example of how to configure an on/off accessory on port 1 that … Continue reading

USB Configurable Arduino DCC Servo & Accessory Decoder – ArCoMoRa 1 – Download & Install the Software

Model railroad hobbyist friend Nico Teering took the Arduino DCC decoder software to a whole new level. A wealth of functions are combined all into one Arduino sketch for multi-purpose DCC control of 16 pins: servo control, angles and speed solenoid control point frog polarization accessory switching one shot blink and more … even manual … Continue reading
