DSM2 Model Railway Controllers

These model rail 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 via a rear panel battery hatch.

Although these transmitters are designed to work with the Deltang Rx4 and Rx6 receivers for land-based vehicles and R/C model rail, they can be used with any DSM2 receiver.

Some of the original Deltang transmitters are available as kits.


Tx10 Controller

Tx10 is a simple hand-held train controller with one forward/reverse speed control and a push-button for receiver binding. It is ideal as a basic, entry-level transmitter for modellers who don't need a more complex controller. The push button can be used to operate a whistle or horn if you have a sound card.

As Tx10 does not have a toggle switch on R/C channel 3, it cannot be used for programming receivers.

The case dimensions are 92 x 66 x 28mm and the PP3 battery is accessed via a sliding panel on the rear of the case. More information can be found in the user manual.

Price from £45.00

Centre-Off Throttle


Low-Off Throttle
Tx22v2 Controller

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.

More information can be found in the user manual. A kit of the original Deltang Tx22 is also available.

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.

Price from £72.00


Tx22X Controller

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.

Tx22Xcs Controller

The design of Tx22Xcs has been optimised to make it usable for both live-steam and battery electric locomotives. It has a rotary control for throttle / regulator and a 12-way loco selection switch plus a direction toggle switch. It has a slider which is switchable between inertia and an auxiliary function plus 2 push buttons also for auxiliaries. Powered by a 9V PP3 which is in a separate battery compartment with a removable cover. Case dimensions: 140 x 66 x 28mm.

Battery electric locos can be configured for either low-off or centre-off throttle; if centre-off is selected, the toggle switch can be used for additional functions such as sound card triggers, lighting or servo controller couplers.

The slider control is ideal for chime type steam whistles as the operating point of these varies with steam pressure. The slider can also be used for any other auxiliary function where a linear analogue control is more appropriate than a rotary control. The 2-way toggle switch next to the slider switches it between operating the built-in inertia function or the auxiliary control.

Controls:

  • Throttle: R/C channel 1, forward/reverse or low-off
  • Selecta: R/C channel 2, 1..12
  • S1: R/C channel 3, toggle switch right (FWD)=high left (REV)=low
  • S2: R/C channel 4, push button up=mid down=low
  • Bind: R/C channel 5, push button up=high down=low
  • Slider: switchable between inertia and R/C channel 7
where low, mid and high refer to the R/C channel values. More information can be found in the user manual.

Tx24v2 Controller

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 MR001 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.

A kit of the original Deltang Tx24 is also available.

Price from £74.00

Price from £74.00


Tx72v2 Controller

Tx72v2 is hand-held 2.4GHz DSM2 transmitter for model railway control. It is similar to the Tx22v2 with the addition of a 12 way switch and trigger buttons for accessing the menu functions in Rx6x receivers. The Tx72v2 'Menu' function comprises a 12 way rotary switch and T1/T2 trigger buttons all controlling R/C 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, Rx60, Rx61, Rx62, Rx65 and Rx66 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

Tx72v2 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.

A kit of the original Deltang Tx72 is also available.
