The next step in decoding DCC has arrived!
Available from now: the Arcomora DCCNext DCC decoder!
What is it:
A single pcb that combines an Arduino and the existing Arcomora DCC/Power shield.
It is a DIY kit that you have to solder yourself.
- Internal power supply. Input: 9-16V AC or DC
- Input for DCC with led indicator and decoder circuit
- ATMEGA328P processor
- 16 Outputs or inputs for controlling accessories and servo’s.
- Outputs with Dupont pins (for servo’s) or screw terminals
- Separate 5V input for servo’s
- Additional 5V output for testing purposes (no servo’s)
- Can also be powered by external 5V.
- Status led
- Power led
- Servo power led
- Reset switch
To keep the price low there is no USB interface on the board.
But an external USB interface(CH340) is also available.
It can be used for multiple DCCNext decoders.
So you need only one!
That saves money.
You can also use a FTDI interface if you already have it. But take care of the order of the connection pins!
Also available is a housing box for a more protected mounting.
- You can create your Arduino sketches for processing a DCC signal and upload them to the DCCNext.
- Upload the Mardec 5.0 sketch for use as multipurpose DCC decoder for accessories and servo’s.
- Upload the ArSigDec sketch for use as signal decoder.
The board has three power options:
- Internal. Circuit powered by internal power
- Servo. Circuit powered by the 5V on the terminal for servo power
- External. Circuit powered by the 5V terminal
