6-81294 - LCS SensorTrack™
LCS SensorTrack™ is a 5” straight track section equipped with an infra-red receiver. This receiver reads data beamed out of all Lionel Legacy and Vision locomotives that are equipped with an infra-red transmitter. When a compatible locomotive crosses a SensorTrack, engine details like TMCC ID, road name, number, engine type, lighting options, fuel levels and direction of travel are retrieved by the track and transmitted through your LCS installation.
Is my locomotive compatible with SensorTrack?
- Triggers locomotives actions from a list of preset Action Commands or custom user recordings
- Automatically updates engine info in all CAB-2 remotes (Requires LEGACY base & CAB-2 remote)
- Displays locomotive fuel levels (Requires LEGACY base & CAB-2 remote)
- Displays real time engine locations on the iPad-based LCS App (requires LCS WiFi, Apple iPad™ and free LCS App)
Preset and Custom Action CommandsUse any of the eight pre-programmed actions or create your own automated routines that your compatible locomotives will follow each time they pass the LCS SensorTrackTM. Pre-programmed actions include whistle and horn blows, engineer dialog, CrewTalk, and bell ringing. LCS SensorTrackTM even knows which direction your locomotives is going and performs dialog actions such as arrival and departure announcements accordingly.
Or record your own series of up to 200 commands from your Legacy CAB 1L, CAB 2, or LCS App. These commands will then be played back automatically each time any IR-compatible loco passes over the track. Alternately, you can make loco-specific recordings so just one engine performs your custom actions.
Preset Action commands and custom user recordings are stored locally in the memory of each SensorTrack on your layout.
Instant CAB-2 UpdatesWhen your LCS installation includes a LEGACY base and CAB-2 remote, SensorTrack™ automatically programs LEGACY CAB-2 remote with vital engine information. This instant “roll-over update” includes road names and road numbers, current fuel level, lighting options and more. This feature is especially useful when your layout hosts visiting locomotives. It effectively replaces Legacy orange locomotive memory modules.
Real time location information
When your LCS installation includes an LCS WiFi, Apple iPad™ and the free LCS App, SensorTrack™ delivers real time location updates on the LCS App. See each compatible locomotive’s ID, name and number appear on your iPad each time one crosses any SensorTrack™ on your layout.
Current Fuel Levels
Each time a Legacy locomotive passes over a SensorTrack, it transmits its current fuel levels. To view this information on your CAB-2, simply tap the Speed button. The current fuel level will appear as a gauge in the lower-left corner of the touchpad display (see photo below).
One 6-81499 LCS DB-9 Cable with Power Supply (not included) is required per LCS installation.
