The Deltang transmitters are all low-power, short-range and support the DSM2 protocol. They use the Tx2 module with a profile appropriate to the set of controls provided by a particular transmitter. The ready-to-use transmitters require a PP3 9V battery (not included) which is installed either by removing the rear panel, held on with 4 screws, or via a battery hatch (depends on transmitter type).

The transmitter kits can be built by anyone with some electrical / electronic soldering experience. The assembly task is primarily wiring the controls to the Tx2 pins. You will need to provide: hookup wire, contact adhesive and solder. A soldering iron with a small tip should be used to make the connections. The box requires drilling to fit the controls.

DT Tx22 DSM2 Controller Kit
(Top | Tx20 | Tx21 | Tx22v2 | Tx22X | Tx23 | Tx24 Kit | Tx24v2 | Tx72 Kit | Tx72v2)

This is the original Deltang Tx22 in kit form with a self-adhesive front panel label. The Tx22 implements the DT 'Selecta' feature to allow switching control between up to 12 receivers. All Rx6x, Rx43d-v5 and Rx45-v5 receivers may be programmed to use Selecta and are available with Selecta pre-configured (-22 option).

View the info sheet for the kit. Tx22 can be used to program Deltang receivers but this requires a special configuration of the Inertia knob, the Tx22 info page shows how to do this.

Tx22v2 DSM2 Controller
(Top | Tx20 | Tx21 | Tx22 Kit | Tx22X | Tx23 | Tx24 Kit | Tx24v2 | Tx72 Kit | Tx72v2)

Tx22v2 is a revision of the Deltang Tx22 in a hand-held case with separate battery compartment. Controls for speed, inertia and loco selection plus a 2-way toggle switch and push button. The case dimensions are 112 x 66 x 28mm. Tx22v2 can be used to program Deltang receivers using the toggle switch to step through programming levels. Programming details for each receiver may be accessed from the web page for the receiver.

Tx22v2 is available in 2 basic versions:

  1. centre-off throttle and toggle switch used for auxilary functions, e.g. lighting, sound triggers or couplers
  2. low-off throttle and toggle switch used for direction control

The toggle switch may be specified as self-centring or latching:

  • self-centring: the switch returns to the centre when released.
  • latching: the switch stays put when released.
Either toggle type works well with Deltang receivers as auxiliary outputs can be configured as momentary or latching and the ESC direction change requires only a momentary press of the toggle.

Tx22X DSM2 Train Transmitter
(Top | Tx20 | Tx21 | Tx22 Kit | Tx22v2 | Tx23 | Tx24 Kit | Tx24v2 | Tx72 Kit | Tx72v2)

Tx22X is an extended version of Tx22. Controls for Speed, Loco selection, and Inertia plus two toggle switches and two push buttons for auxiliary functions such as lighting, couplers and sound card triggers. Powered by a 9V PP3 which is in a separate battery compartment with a removable cover. Case dimensions: 140 x 66 x 28mm.

Controls:

  • Throttle: channel 1, forward/reverse or low-off
  • Selecta: channel 2, 1..12
  • Inertia: Tx internal
  • S1: channel 3, toggle switch up=high down=low or up=fwd down=rev
  • S2: channel 4, push button up=mid down=low
  • Bind: channel 5, push button up=high down=low
  • S3: channel 7, toggle switch up=high down=low
where low, mid and high refer to the R/C channel values.

The toggle switch may be specified as self-centring or latching:

  • self-centring: the switch returns to the centre when released.
  • latching: the switch stays put when released.
Either toggle type works well with Deltang receivers as auxiliary outputs can be configured as momentary or latching and the ESC direction change requires only a momentary press of the toggle. Tx22X can be used to program Deltang receivers using the S1 toggle switch to step through programming levels. Programming details for each receiver may be accessed from the web page for the receiver.

Please select throttle and toggle switch types using the menus below. S1 is used for forward/reverse selection when low-off throttle is selected. All Deltang receivers switch direction with a short high or low pulse on the direction channel so either type of toggle switch is suitable for S1:

Tx23 is compact 3-train DSM2 controller using the Tx2 module. Controls for speed, direction and inertia. If you control less than 3 engines or don't use the direction switches for that, then you can control lights or other features. Tx23 is presented as a 6-channel transmitter and requires each loco receiver to have its ESC programmed to a different channel. Also available as a kit.

Available as a kit of parts or built ready to use. View the info sheets for kit or ready-to-use.

Tx23 can not be used to program Deltang receivers.

DT Tx24 DSM2 Controller Kit
(Top | Tx20 | Tx21 | Tx22 Kit | Tx22v2 | Tx22X | Tx23 | Tx24v2 | Tx72 Kit | Tx72v2)

This is the original Deltang Tx24 in kit form, there is no front-panel label as the box size and layout does not allow space for legends around the controls. The Tx24 is the same as Tx22 but with Direction switch changed to a knob (pot). The Inertia knob can be made to control a channel so the Speed, Direction and Inertia knobs can control up to 3 channels in a proportional manner (eg: for live steam). The Tx24 implements the DT 'Selecta' feature to allow switching control between up to 3 receivers. All Rx6x, Rx43d-v5 and Rx45-v5 receivers may be programmed to use Selecta and are available with Selecta pre-configured (-22 option).

Tx24v2 DSM2 Controller
(Top | Tx20 | Tx21 | Tx22 Kit | Tx22v2 | Tx22X | Tx23 | Tx24 Kit | Tx72 Kit | Tx72v2)

Tx24v2 is an enhanced version of Tx24. Controls for low-off speed, centre-off reverser, loco selection, and inertia plus a centre-biased toggle switch and 2 push buttons for auxiliary functions such as lighting and couplers. Powered by a 9V PP3 which is in a separate battery compartment with a removable cover. Case dimensions: 140 x 66 x 28mm.

Tx24v2 is ideal for control of live-steam locos - combine with Rx102 and 2 small servos for a simple but effective installation. Tx24v2 may also be used with battery powered locos using one of the Deltang receivers with built-in speed controller.

Tx24v2 can be used to program Deltang receivers using the reverser knob to step through programming levels. Programming details for each receiver may be accessed from the web page for the receiver.

DT Tx72 DSM2 Controller Kit
(Top | Tx20 | Tx21 | Tx22 Kit | Tx22v2 | Tx22X | Tx23 | Tx24 Kit | Tx24v2 | Tx72v2)

This is the original Deltang Tx72 in kit form, there is no front-panel label as the box size and layout does not allow space for legends around the controls.

Tx72 is hand-held 2.4GHz DSM2 transmitter for model railway control. It is similar to the Tx22 with the addition of a 12 way switch and trigger buttons for accessing the menu functions in Rx47 and Rx6x receivers. The Tx72 'Menu' function comprises a 12 way rotary switch and T1/T2 trigger buttons all controlling channel 7. Compatible receivers must have the Menu feature enabled using the 'paper clip' method of connecting P2 and P4 together, applying power and then removing the connection.

The Menu controls are only useful when used with Rx47 and Rx65 which have extended programmable functionality. It allows outputs to be switched on/off and settings in the receiver changed from the transmitter. The Menu functionality available for each receiver is described in the programming instructions for that receiver. Each position of the transmitter 12 way switch can make up to 3 things happen in the receiver:

  • the position of the switch can trigger an action directly - a 0.8s delay is implemented so that quick movements of the rotary switch do not immediately invoke the action;
  • each position can have 2 more actions associated with it and triggered using T1 and T2; these have no time delay
