With the new ECoS 2.1 Command Station 50210, we are proud to present you the latest generation of our Successful ECOS digital centre. The ECoS offers you state of the art digital technology and a unique functional scope with which both (new) beginners as well as “Experts” who are looking for a new headquarters will not be disappointed. The operation of the unit is thanks to a Large colour display with touch panel and customized user interface. All Icons are large and clearly arranged, information is displayed in plain text in various Languages. There is also an included stylus for the display.
The ECoS control unit contains everything you need for digital system operation, Simply connect and get started.
What can the ECoS do?
The ECoS is the only digital center that offers all four common digital protocols:
• DCC with RailCom® and RailComPlus® (up to 9999 addresses, 128 speed steps, 28 functions)
• Märklin® Motorola® (up to 255 addresses, up to 8 functions)
• Selectrix® (driving mode and programming of decoders)
• M4 (mfx® compatible, with automatic registration of the locomotives)
This allows you to optimize almost all the locomotives of all known manufacturers on the market.
The ECoS has two integrated lanes. Each console is equipped with motor-Grip control as well as 9 function buttons. The independent control of two means that locomotives can always be viewed without a cumbersome view.
Depending on the data format and locomotive decoder, up to 28 functions can be called up per locomotive. Every locomotive Is registered in the integrated locomotive database and can be specified individually with a name as well as a Locomotive image. In addition to the built – in locomotives, you can also create your own images on the ECoS. You can find suitable pictures in the “Lokbild-Bazar” on The ESU homepage, or you design the images on your computer. If your locomotives are equipped with a RailComPlus® compatible decoders, the
Stored information on the decoder for name, function symbols and loco symbol are imported directly after detection is automatically recognized and accepted by the ECoS.
Switch / magnet accessories
The large display screen of the ECoS shows all existing switches and their switching state
arranged in a matrix. Symbols illustrate at a glance whether they are simple Points,
a decoupling track or a street lighting Switch. You can freely select the position of the switchboard at any time.
Track drawing console
A full – grained track monitor (GBS) shows the topology of your system directly on the
Screen allowing you to place your signals and points in a prototypical manor. larger layouts can be displayed on up to 16 “pages”. The Track switching device, correspond in function and switching state (switch position) of the representation in the signal box.
If desired, track sections can be linked with feedback contacts. In this way You can always see which tracks are occupied in the track monitor. If you use the RailCom® Enabled ECoS Detector, you can even see the locomotive number, So you always know where the locomotives are!
Points can be grouped into roadways. These are the controlled by individual switches or connected to a feedback contact. The logic Is very powerful for the route control: Up to 8 individual conditions may apply, not only feedback contacts, but also the position of points can be linked and triggered making a true start-up operation possible as well as (simple) shadow station controls.
Shuttle train control
The pendulum control integrated into the ECoS is very popular because it is very easy to use. For this purpose, you need a feedback contact at each end of the route, which is software-controlled.
Locomotive duration of stay, acceleration and braking behavior are super easy to set up on the screen of the ECoS. You can, of course, also define interpositions.
Optimal tuning of your decoders is essential. Programming decoders with your ECoS
tries to make this process as easy as possible.
A booster with a continuous output power of 6 amps is now integrated in each ECoS 2.1 control center. We supply a stabilized switching power supply with 150 VA . You can freely adjust the output voltage to suit between 15V and 21V. The Integrated current monitor shows you the set voltage and the flowing current , on the screen.
Although the ECoS already contains many functions, the system can be expanded depending on your requirements.
Connect up to 31 pieces of the known s88 feedback modules directly to the (galvanic
Separate) input of your ECoS, or better still use our ESU EcoSDetector Feedback modules. These operate extremely reliably and can, if required, show which locomotive is in the monitored section.
If the 6A output power is no longer sufficient, any number of ESU ECoSBoost boosters
Can be connected. The integrated RailComPlus® sensors ensure trouble-free operation.
Each ECoSBoost shows the current booster current in the ECoS current monitor, or you can also use your old DCC compatible boosters.
With the L.Net converter, you can use existing LocoNet® hand controllers and feedback modules.Mobile Control II
If you need more hand controls? Then extend your ECoS with the Mobile Control II. Control all your locomotives, turnouts or travel routes wirelessly by radio.
We have made your switch to the ECoS as simple as possible. You can use your existing digital system as a slave by connecting the track output of your old DCC system to the ECoSniffer input. This will listen to all DCC packages and translates it to the ECoS center.
If you are planning larger layouts, you will soon need to use several ECoSLink terminals.
These provide several connection sockets for the ESU system buss ECoSLink and can provide additional feed current. The ECoSLink buss is a high-speed buss based on the CAN standard, to which all accessories are connected. The ECoSlink buss can be up to 100 meters long and supply the connected devices with energy.
