Play, operate and manage in a whole new dimension!


With the revolutionary Z21 model railway control system you can experience a maximum of driving fun and true to the original perfection. Operate your entire railway layout and all your trains and wagons with your smartphone and tablet PC. Now also with photorealistic driver’s cabs of the original locomotives. 

As a world first you can experience the journeys through your model railway layout from the perspective of a real locomotive driver in the future. The built-in cameras in the locomotive transmit live pictures of your journeys to the driver’s cab on your tablet PC. 

You will forget everything else! With a simple touch of the screen with your finger you can control all digital components: for speed, sound, signal functions of the locomotives – as well as the switch lines, motions and sound on the layout. In addition to that Z21 makes the creation and assignment of functions uniquely easy!

Ideal for beginners as well as to switch. Z21 is there for the digital layout operator. It is simple to switch because Z21 is compatible with MultiMAUS and Lokmaus 2 operation systems. For the beginners there is a z21 version for starter sets with limited connection and configuration capabilities. In both cases it means: Plug & Play.

The switch for digital layout operators made simple

The Z21 version for experts (black box) makes the switch to Z21 simple:

  • It  is completely compatible to previous systems with all multiMAUS models and to the Lokmaus 2 and features three standard multiMAUS ports. This way the whole family can play.
  • Your locomotives are automatically recognized and report their status over RailCom© to the Z21. That way you can take care of large vehicle fleets with a minimum of effort - and use current status reports in the operation apps.
  • Software and sound of the ZIMO sound decoders can be comfortably updated with the Z21 with your smartphone. This way your digital locomotives are always at the latest top level at all times.
  • The Z21 supports a multitude of standard interfaces and connection options - ideal if you want to continually enlarge your layout or want to add new functions to it.
  • The shipment contains: WLAN(WIFI) router, efficient power supply.

The z21 version for beginners (white box, little z at z21) has the same features as the Z21 for experts with only a few smaller connection and configuration limitations. Left out are LocoNet, CAN-Bus, the X-Bus port, the Sniffer-Bus, the programming end level and the programmable track port as well as the track current regulator.

Simply set up and get going with your smartphone or tablet PC - with a fascinating hobby and a truly unique new driving experience with z21.

The z21 starter sets are available at the e-shops of Fleischmann and Roco as well at the specialized dealers.

Operate like a locomotive driver

 




Feel like a real train driver with camera locomotives!

 

Generations of model railway enthusiasts have dreamed of it; and thanks to Roco's camera locomotives, those dreams have now come true. On every journey you will see your model railway like you've never seen it before...from the train driver's perspective!

You will see the lovingly created details on both sides of the track in a completely new light; every feature of your model railway will be visible on screen in full size for all to see for the very first time. Highlights include passing through tunnels, pulling in and stopping at stations, passing trains coming in the opposite direction and taking corners. When the train turns so does the camera and with it your view, just like it would for the train driver. It makes you feel like you are on board the train and will never fail to impress.

Every journey becomes a fantastic experience. Integrating the camera locomotive into your Z21 controls is also extremely easy.


Incredibly realistic

 

Camera technology: Once installed, the camera is virtually invisible, hidden behind the train's front windscreen. When the train turns, so too does the camera. The high camera quality with automatic exposure, the large field of view and the extremely wide-angle lens provide a fantastic picture.

System technology: The journey is streamed live to your tablet PC or smartphone via WLAN and the Z21 module. With a tablet PC, the experience is enhanced with realistic Z21 images of the driver's cab. You can control your locomotive like a real train driver using the touchscreen and see the track through the (virtual) front windscreen of the driver's cab.
With a smartphone or laptop you can enjoy the journey in fullscreen mode.

Recommended equipment:

  • Tablet PC, e.g. iPad 2, Android 4 or higher
  • Smartphone, e.g. iPhone 4s, Android 4 or higher
  • Memory from 512MB RAM, 1GHz processor, e.g. Tegra2


Incredibly easy: Plug & Play

 

It is this easy for Z21 owners: simply plug and play. All you have to do is place the Roco camera locomotive with integrated WLAN module on the track, enter your password in the Z21 app, activate the camera locomotive function under the Locomotive Library menu item and off you go.

If you have not yet installed Z21 controls, it is still just as easy. Simply download the Z21 app to your tablet PC and with a few clicks you too can control your camera locomotive with your multiMAUS or multiMAUS pro system.


Experience the future of model railways with Roco's camera locomotives

 

In order to make your unique driving experience with the Z21 model railway controls even better, Roco is constantly expanding its range of camera locomotives in line with available high-quality images of drivers' cabs. The current range of camera locomotives is available at www.roco.cc.
