Introduction: DCC
DCC . . . Digital Command Control
On a traditional DC (analogue) layout, to control a locomotive the power feed applied to the rails is controlled,
therefore normally only a single locomotive is placed on the track at any one time. DCC however, allows the
user to control many locomotives on the same track at the same time on an individual basis. This is achieved by
controlling the motor in each locomotive directly via track born digital signals that are sent from a DCC controller.
Each loco has a small DCC decoder fitted which listens to the track born signals, decodes them and feeds power
to the locomotive motor at the level commanded by the DCC controller for that particular locomotive. The
decoder can also control direction and other functions on board the locomotive, e.g. lighting, etc.
The Hornby Elite Digital Controller offers many advanced features and is yet very simple to use. This
instruction manual clearly explains all of the Elite’s capabilities. We will start with a basic ‘get you going’ guide
explaining how to connect your Elite to the track, etc. We then move on to the ‘Quick Start’ section explaining
how to quickly select and control a locomotive and then how to programme a new address to a locomotive.
Once you have mastered the above, we move on to examine the full capabilities of the Elite. Each section of
the manual follows the Menu System Guide. This guide shows the menu structure of the Elite in a simple flow
diagram format (see pages 8-9).
