nControl Software


Product Details
DESCRIPTION
Be in full control! With the 4DBrix™ nControl software you can automate and monitor your LEGO® train track layout on screen. The graphical interface has two panels: the track layout panel at the top and the control panel at the bottom. The track layout panel shows the current state of the track, for example whether a track switch is set to go straight or to turn. The control panel groups tiles that control the actuators - for example the track switch motors - and tiles that display the feedback from the train track sensors.

Track Planner
nControl has a track planner that allows you to design train and monorail layouts. We gave the planner an intuitive interface that enables you to create a track layout with a minimal effort. It's easy to build and modify layouts so you can test various configurations and see which one works best. Unlike other track planners, nControl does not aim at creating a photo-realistic image of your track. It aims at creating a 'model' that can be used to automate and control your layout.

Simulation
The simulation module allows you to test the automation without having any devices connected to your system. For example, if you click a track switch tiles you will see the switch flip in the model of your layout on your screen. The simulation mode can be used to configure and test your layout before connecting the devices or to explore the automation possibilties offered by nControl.

Automation
nControl can communicate with the automation hardware and serve as a graphical interface to control every aspect of your train or monorail layout. This is done by clicking on the control tiles. For example, you can flip a track switch by clicking on the corresponding track switch tile. Tiles can also be linked so that clicking one tile results in multiple operations, for example, a traffic light is automatically changed to red if you flip a monorail cross switch.
