Features
 
    It is configured as 8 normally open relays, split into two banks of four. Each of these two banks has a common terminal feed. This allows for two power districts and 8 blocks. Each individual relay is rated for 20 amps.
    The BPC2 may be configured as either a TRack or ACCessory device with IDs from 1 to 91. You set the starting address of the first relay and the remaining relays are automatically assigned the next seven ID's (up to ID 99 for the last relay).
    To operate, first address the device (TR or ACC plus ID#). Then, send an AUX1 command to latch that relay on and an AUX2 to switch it off.
    The BPC2 can be operated from Lionel CAB remotes and/or the LCS App+LCS WiFi. The BPC2 is connected to the LCS system using an LCS PDI cable. This carries commands as well as power for the BPC2's control electronics. An additional AC power source is required for relay operation. This external AC can come from your track power or an accessory transformer (sold separately).
    One 6-81499 LCS Power Supply and DB9 cable is required per LCS installation.

O-Gauge - LCS SensorTrack

O-Gauge - LCS SensorTrack

Add the LCS SensorTrack to the mix. Now your LCS App control panels show the location of Legacy Engines as they travel across your layout. And when a friend brings over a Legacy locomotive, simply run it across the LCS SensorTrack and that engine's name and number are immediately updated on your iPad screen and each Legacy Cab-2 remote. Use Sensor Track to trigger preset actions like blowing a grade-crossing signal each time a Legacy engine passes. You can even record your own special series of commands to be triggered automatically.

O-Gauge - LCS SENSORTRACK - MULTI SYSTEM COMPATIBLE

O-Gauge - LCS SENSORTRACK - MULTI SYSTEM COMPATIBLE

With Lionel's LCS SensorTrack, you can add automated action to your layout!

LCS SensorTrack™ is a 5" straight track section equipped with an infra-red receiver that reads data beamed out of all LEGACY locomotives that are equipped with an infra-red transmitter. It is a simple hookup with pre-made LCS PDI Cables available in a variety of lengths. It automatically programs LEGACY CAB-2 remotes with vital engine information, including road names and road numbers from any transmitter-equipped engine, replacing the orange locomotive modules.

LCS SensorTrack also replaces the TMCC Action Recorder Controller (6-14181), letting you record and then execute custom track actions and layout scenarios you create, such as customized stops, direction changes, throwing switches, and uncoupling. Actions are easily programmed via CAB-1L, CAB-2, or LCS App and each SensorTrack can store two custom recordings—one for each direction of travel.

SensorTrack Capabilities and Features:
Set the LCS SensorTrack™ to automatically perform one of eight pre-programmed actions every time an IR equipped locomotive passes over it.
Pre-programmed actions include whistle and horn blows, CrewTalk™, and bell ringing
Arrival and departure announcements vary according to the engine's direction of travel
The LCS SensorTrack™ gathers all information directly from the locomotive without the need to use the orange module. This feature is especially useful when your layout hosts visiting locomotives (LEGACY Command Set required).
Locomotive information and ID automatically load into all of your LEGACY™ CAB-2 remotes as they pass over the LCS SensorTrack
Create your own custom actions by recording commands made with your CAB remote or LCS App.
Actions you record can include opening couplers, activating switch tracks, or any command made with the CAB remote or LCS App.
Your custom action can include up to 250 time-stamped commands
Your custom recordings can be activated by all IR engines passing over the LCS SensorTrack or
limited to just the locomotive that was used to create the recording.
Each LCS SensorTrack holds two custom recordings—one for each direction of travel for each IR-equipped locomotive.
NOTE: The LCS SensorTrack™ works only with IR equipped engines. All Legacy locos made after November 2011 and ALL Vision locos are IR equipped. For a complete list of IR equipped locomotives, check out our website at Lionel.com/LCS . A LEGACY™ CAB 1L or CAB 2 is required.

O-Gauge - LCS Serial Converter 2 (SER2)

O-Gauge - LCS Serial Converter 2 (SER2)

Add more functionality with Optional Add-on Component of the Layout Control System. In tech-speak, the LCS SER2 is a bidirectional bridge between the high speed serial LCS system (115 kbaud, packetized data interface)and lower-speed serial devices (9600 baud serial). In plain-speak, SER2 lets you connect older Lionel/IC Controls products such as the TPC300, TPC400, ASC or BPC to a new LCS installation. Features For full functionality, LCS equipment will be connected to the DB9 serial port on your command base. If you currently have TPCs or other devices hooked up to that port, you must remove that cable to make way for the LCS Power Supply and DB9 cable. Adding the SER2 gives you a new DB9 port to reconnect your old devices. SER2 also boosts the available serial data drive current, so you can connect all your wired serial devices without the need for a separate serial booster. The SER2 will pass through commands from Lionel CAB remotes and/or the LCS App+LCS WiFi. It is connected to the LCS system using an LCS PDI cable. This cable carries commands as well as power for the SER2's control electronics. You can connect multiple SER2 modules if desired; each adds an extra DB9 serial input/output connector to your LCS system. For example, this would let you connect a PC to run the Lionel Legacy System Utility program or 3rd party LCS compatible software. One 6-81499 LCS Power Supply and DB9 cable is required per LCS installation.

O-Gauge - LCS WiFi Module

O-Gauge - LCS WiFi Module

WiFi Control your Layout from Tablets and Smart Phones With LCS Wi-Fi, you can operate your model railroad using devices such as the Apple iPad®, computers, smart phones or other Wi-Fi devices. LCS Wi-Fi can create its own independent WiFi network or join an existing one. Up to 15 Wi-Fi devices can be connected at once. Each connected device requires software written specifically for the LCS system. Lionel’s LCS App is available as a free download for the iPad. In addition, Lionel has made the LEGACY & LCS protocol codes available to third party developers. A Base/No Base switch lets you configure an LCS system without a Lionel command base. Choose this type of installation if you are exclusively running conventional locomotives, but want iPad control over your switches. Or if you are using another type of locomotive control system, such as DCC, but want to be able to use BPC2, ASC2 or other LCS modules to control your layout. LCS Wi-Fi gets its operating power on the same cables used for data transmission. One 6-81499 LCS Power Supply and DB9 cable is required per LCS installation (even in a “no base” configuration).
