Clinics Presented:

NMRA LCC (Layout Command Control) from the user's perspective

This clinic is a series of demonstrations on how to set up, wire, and configure layouts using LCC hardware. We focus on the user benefits of LCC, and how working with LCC hardware looks for a typical modeler, from unboxing to an operating layout.

The examples we will cover are the following:

1. Simple accessory control with output devices: turnouts, signals, un-couplers.

2. Creating fascia-mounted panels with input devices.

3. Creating software panels using JMRI.

4. Adding block detection with input devices.

5. Configuring a railroad crossing with detection, signaling and sound.

6. Configuring ABS signaling.

7. Modular layouts: automatic discovery of module sequences for ABS signaling.

OpenLCB User's Group Meeting

LCC is a subset of OpenLCB protocol standards, and is designed to be 100% compatible and interoperable with OpenLCB. The OpenLCB group's mission is to push the boundaries model railroad control. Work within the OpenLCB group is on the leading edge of technology. Once an OpenLCB protocol has been documented, prototyped, and thoroughly tested, it becomes a candidate for adoption by the NMRA as part of the LCC standards.

This meeting is to discuss topics related to next generation model railroad control with the architects of OpenLCB and LCC. This is an open forum and a chance for users to discuss their ideas with the developers.
