ABC technology: A Lenz patent that enables the train to slow down in front of a signal and stop with all its functions active. To use the ABC technology, the used locomotive decoder MUST support the protocol and of course, be activated.
Additional advantages of the ABC technology:
All locomotive functions (e.g. front lighting) can still be switched while the locomotive stops in front of the signal.
Programming in operational mode (POM) possible.
The locomotive can reverse away again from the signal!
A locomotive can pass in the opposite direction, even if the signal is at “Stop”.
Shunting is possible, even if the signal is at “Stop”. Simply activate the shunting mode!
No short-circuits when crossing section points between the driving and stopping sections.
The BM3 block section module uses the ABC technology to facilitate the simply construction of a block section. Each block is equipped with a BM3 module so that an infinite number of blocks can be added.
The BM3 block section module is used to control the block signals. You can connect light signals directly; signals with double-coil drive require a BMA adapter.
Control of block sections by means of BM3 modules is suitable for push and pull operation. If you want to use rear-powered (pushed) trains (push-pull trains, commuter trains, motor coaches), the first coach must be fitted with a power consumer. Simply use interior lighting or, if using a driving coach, a function decoder for controlling the direction-dependent front lighting.
Using the BM2 at the end of a block section
You can use the BM2 module to complete a block section of BM3 modules. In a typical case, the entry signal to a station would be at the end of a block section. By setting the entry signal, you, as the conductor, determine whether an arriving train may or may not enter the station.
