YaMoRC modules with XpressNet / XBus / RBus connection



Building on the immense succes of our YD9401 upgrade for the DR5000, we decided to bring a complete Command Station, the YD7010, that includes the proven YD7001 technology and YD9401 Network Module.

The command station is based on the technology used in our YD7001-E, but with a completely new designed mainboard, with improved component choice and PCB layout to render robustness and extended functionality. Of course the YD7010 comes with our YD9401 is pre-installed.
Further we improved some visual and usability aspects: Different colors for the RJ connectors which were easy to confuse when they were all gray. Now the XBus and Network sockets have different colors to the ES-Link/s88N, LocoNet and BBus connectors.
On the front we moved the GO- and STOP-LEDs to be in-line with all LEDs and that prevents touching and/or damaging the LEDs when operating the pushbuttons.
On the back we moved the RS-Bus and Program-Track terminals into one 4-way block. This effectively prevents the terminals of turning and, worst case, shearing off !

The product placement of the YD7010 in our portfolio is meant to be an Entry Level, yet very complete and versatile DCC command station.

A summary of the presented features:

  • Unique DCC signal generator:
    With priority control and interleaved packet generation.
    Changes sent  by any interface are directly being reflected to the track.
    Generates RailCom Cut-Out.
  • 3 A integrated Booster
  • Operating voltage range from  15 – 19 VDC. Giving a track-voltage of 13.8 – 17.8 Volts. That means safe for your N-scale equipment and powerful for H0.
  • Multiple Model Railroad compatible Interface Busses:
    LocoNet, the world standard set by Digitrax Inc.
    XpressNet, from the inventor of DCC: Lenz
    Good old S88 signalling, fully compatible with ES-IN-Link by use of our YD6902-EXT adapters.
  • USB interface for three virtual COM-ports:
    –  YD.Command
    –  LocoNet
    –  XpressNet
    The USB connection can also be used to update the YD7010`s firmware
  • Full network capabilities:
    WiFi Access Point,
    gives direct access to smartphones, tablets and handheld controllers
    100baseT RJ45 wired network socket,
    connect and bind to your home network and reliably connect your PC software
  • By means of the built in YD9401 Module which provides:
    6 different but SIMULTANEOUS usable network protocols on WiFi and LAN:
    *    XpressNet-LAN,
    *    Z21®,
    *    LocoNet Binary,
    *    LocoNet LBServer,
    *    JMRI: WiThrottle
    *    YD.Command
  • Booster Interface by LocoNet-B with strong, 800mA LocoNet RailSync signals
  • Handcontroller, feedback modules etc. interface by LocoNet-T with strong, 800mA 12VDC power supply
  • Powerful 1 Amp XpressNet supply
  • Roco R-BUS compatible feedbacks on XpressNet socket
  • Roco B-BUS for compatible boosters on RJ10 socket
  • Lenz RS-BUS compatible feedbacks
  • Infra-Red sensor for the use of IR-based remotye controllers like the Uhlenbrock IRIS or the Piko DigiFern
  • Clear LED indicators
  • Programming:
    POM write
    Service Mode ( programming track )
    ES-Link  capable modules like YD8044, YD8008, YD8116, YD6016ES, YD7403
  • Additional extra purchasable , quality made, YaMoRC spec,  switch mode power supply with choise of:
    15V fixed / 4 A
    18V fixed / 3.4A


The YD7001-E ( Revision E ) is an intermediate solution to the delay of the YD7100+7101 Set.

Availability is very limited, please contact your dealer for details.

The command station is based upon a factory new DR5000 mainboard, which has been updated to solve some reliability issues. Furthermore our YD9401 is pre-installed and the hardware has an update to also measure Input- and Trackvoltages.



Our standard current-sensing feedback module with RBus / XBus Interface

It presents:

  • 16 current-sensing detectors, arranged in two independent blocks of 8, each with their own Common
  • 2 Amp continuous current per detector, 8 Amps in total combined over the 16 detectors on the whole module
  • 5 Amp short duration overload (100ms) capable per detector.
  • 1mA current sensitivity
  • Capacitive input filter on every input, to suppress noise on long cables and track-sections
  • Configurable on- and off-delay setting for each input for optimal de-bouncing in case of non optimal wheel-track contact
  • Every input individually configurable for various actions like feedback, turnout toggle, turnout throw, turnout close
  • Every input individually configurable for turnout-address
  • ES-IN-Link for direct connection of up to 4 additional YD6016ES modules (effectively creating a 80 input RBus module)
  • ES-IN-Link connection to other ES-Link enabled modules for module-configuration
  • ES-IN-Link connection to YD9101 for web-based configuration
  • USB connection with one Virtual COM port for the YD.Command protocol
  • Firmware updatable over USB
  • Power supply directly from RBus / XBus ( or USB for easy configuration and updating on a PC )
