Digitrax BDL168 Block Detection and Transponding

Postby matt1471 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 7:18 pm

I am looking to add the Digitrax BDL168 to my DCC layout to benefit from the block detection features. I am also thinking of using the RX4s for transponding.

Do the decoders fitted to my loco's need to be Digitrax specific to work with the RX4 and transponding, or will any decoder work? I have a mix of Zimo, ESU and Bachmann.

Thanks in advance.

I use Digitrax for all hardware
Power, block detection, Signal control, Auto reverse, Radio control etc
I am using Zimo MX 600, Bachmann, ESU sound, Hornby sound and Bachmann sound Decoders.
All work with my system, so I don't foresee you having any problems.
It is the control brains which communicates with your decoders and it is the control brains which communicate with the hardware.
The BDL 168 doesn't communicate with ghe decoder directly.
