You can install this Wi-Fi/DCC Interface in many HO scale locomotives together with your choice of DCC Decoder. This module provides
DCC signals to the decoder under control from your tablet or smartphone over Wi-Fi using any app that supports the WiThrottle Protocol as used by JMRI.
Examples are WiThrottle by Brett Hoffman or Engine Driver by Steve Todd. Another good choice is the TCS UWT-100. You can also drive without any app installed by using the browser-based driving page sourced by the module. All you need on the track is DC power.
But if you have DCC on your track, the unit will respond to that as well!.

This module can be installed within many DCC-Ready HO scale model locomotives to provide Wi-Fi control of a DCC Decoder installed in the locomotive. It is compatible with NMRA compliant decoders.
You can then drive the locomotive using any app that supports the WiThrottle Protocol as used by JMRI, the TCS UWT-100 or the web page generated by the module. Examples of suitable apps are WiThrottle by Brett Hoffman on Apple and Engine Driver by Steve Todd on Android.
You can also control the locomotive using DCC supplied to the track so that the locomotive may run normally on a DCC layout in addition to its Wi-Fi control.
This module is based on our earlier WDMI-35 but has been much improved. I now has a switching regulator that runs a lot cooler, the firmware supports WiThrottle Protocol to allow driving by Engine Driver and WiThrottle as well as TCS UWT-100. It also provides a set of web pages that allow setup and simple driving without the use of any other app.
Functions such as lighting and sound are all controllable from the App on your smart phone or tablet via Wi-Fi.
The WDMI-37 provides CV programming capability via Wi-Fi in service or operational mode. It does not need to be placed on a programming track.
The unit has a socket to which a Capacitive Power Maintenance module may be connected. This provides up to 5 seconds of running when the locomotive runs over dirty track or dead frogs etc. Our CPM-10 Capacitive Power Maintenance module is available separately.

Installs in your locomotive to provide direct Wi-Fi controlled Bipolar DCC to your choice of DCC decoder.
Maximum Continuous Current: 1.0 Amp.
(1) 12 to 16 Volts DC track power. This unit does not operate using AC.
(2) Power supplied from NMRA Compatible DCC Booster may be used as alternative to DC. The WDMI-37 will respond to bipolar DCC signals on its power input from the track.
