Elekdra MR: Electronic interlocking system for model railways
Elekdra MR is electronic interlocking system (EIS), which is
specially concepted for the model railway sector.
For this purpose, elekdra should also meet the special requirements in
module railway systems.
What is Elekdra?
Elekdra is the logical component within a Station. That means, that
within elekdra all rules are checked, which ensure a save operation of
the trains. Elekdra provides the possibility to switch elements like
turnouts, but even gives the possibility tho operate the station with
routes. At every operation the user does, all rules are cheked, if this
operation meets the goal of save operation.
Elekdra provides no interface to the user for itself, but ther is one
universal interface, which gives the possibility, to use different user
interfaces. This opens the possibility, that a station can be controled
with a button interface, but even with an application on a PC. It is
even possible to control the station from a different place.
Because of the use on LotusNet, elekdra ensures the use of commercial
component decoders for elements just like turnouts.
To ensure the useage within module railways, elekdra is designed for
lightweight and fast changes to other requirements.
Here we will provide common information.
The whole developer documentation will be written in english language.
This will be the contribute to the "E" in FREMO and to all the other
people, who are interested in our project.
All those items, which are common to the whole interlocking, will be
collected here, eg system architecture, background information ...
Subsystems, which are used to ensure or improve the function of the
