Cruise CommanderTM Modular Version

Locomotive Command Control Cruise Upgrade

 

Tach-less Installation !

Overview:
The patented (#
7,132,807) Cruise Commander M with SMS* Technologytm is a breakthrough cruise control technology, unprecedented in 3-rail "O" Gauge.  With the Cruise Commander M you get ultra-slow, constant speed, operation of your locos without complicated installations.  Imagine how many locos that do not have flywheels that can now have cruise functionality! 

The Cruise Commander M replaces the Lionel modular motor driver (DCDR), is plug compatible, and a minimal install only requires the addition of a single wire to the serial data for operation.

While in operation, velocity information is monitored from the motor directly.  If dual-motored, each motor is balanced to the other, synchronizing the motors for smooth operation. By using high current HEXFET drivers and operating at 20khz PWM on the motors, silent motor operation is attained.  Additionally, lash-ups are possible when the locos are matched using the exclusive "nudge" feature.
