Since the beginning of DCC we have been able to send information out to locomotive decoders as they run on the layout, data flows out from the command station but, up until now, it has been difficult to receive data back from the locos.

RailCom allows information to be sent back from the locomotive decoders - for example the address may be read in a monitored section which allows you to positively identify which loco is on that track.

All Lenz decoders are now supplied with RailCom as standard.  (RailCom is active as part of the factory setting - it may be turned off by setting bit 4 of CV29 to 0)  RailCom is now also found on the current generation of ESU and Zimo decoders.
