Com- patible with Car System H0 bus and truck models. 6 Analog-Digital Conversion Kit – Upgrade to the future Simply lift up your existing Car System installation to a fully new level. With the »Analog-digital conversion kit«, art. 163701 you will clear the way for the location and control of your conventional minia- ture vehicle in Car System Digital operation. The programmable conversion PCB also features soldering pads allowing the optional equipment of the vehicle with light and sound functions. While simply continuing to use your existing road net. General view of product Besides the conversion PCB the parts supplied with the conver- sion kit also include the ultrasonic capsule allowing the location of the vehicle. That capsule sends to the satellites, beyond the audible range of frequencies, regular signals that are used by the system to determine the position of the vehicle. A suitable posi- tioning ring ensures the accurate fixing of the capsule to the roof. To make the emission and reception of information by radio possible the conversion PCB features an aerial. Know-how Some basic knowledge of electronics and soldering is required to convert the vehicle. In the comprehensive instructions for use we have thus compiled for you all soldering recommendations that we consider to be useful, we also give plenty of tips and recommend the suitable materials and tools allowing the optimum equipment of your workplace environment. 1 Conversion in three simple steps Empty the interior of the vehicle, 1 prepare it and install the ultrasonic capsule in the roof. Connect to the conversion PCB the 2 vehicle’s components »Charging socket«, »On/Off switch«, »Dry-reed sensor«, »Mo- tor«, »Batteries«, the »Temperature sensor« supplied to monitor the battery charging process as well as the ultrasonic capsule. Programme the vehicle using the 3 »Car System Digital« software. 2 3 Putting the digital vehicle into operation After the conversion all functions in the vehicle can be activated and modified by radio while driving, either by clicking on the relevant symbol in the software menu, or by means of a command sent by an automation, or via the integrated voice actuation. Whenever the converted digital vehicle is not within the radio control area of a Car System Digital master, it will behave like any other analog vehicle and can also be used on analog Car System installations without any difficulty. Notes Please observe that car and sprinter van models are not scheduled for conversion to Car System Digital operation at the moment and that, after mounting the PCB, you will immediately require the Car System Digital software and hard- ware to set up and operate your new digital vehicle.
Car System Digital I Basic equipments All you need THE BASICS AT A GLANCE Car System and Car System Digital are founded on the same simple basic princi- ple: a guide wire made of steel secured on a flat support and a vehicle placed onto that support that is switched-on and follows the run of the guide wire. With roads designed true to reality and various elements ensuring traffic control, you realize miniature road traffic full of life without major technical means. 7 With both Car System and Car System Digital, combining a few products already allows to achieve the whole range of possible functions. These basics will allow you to achieve the fastest and easiest integral driving experiences on your model layout. PRODUCTS Car System Digital Car System Special contact wire, art. 161670 Laser-Street elements Groove cutter, art. 161669 (as an alternative to Laser-Street elements) Knifing filler, art. 180500 Transformer, art. 180641 Processor-controlled charging unit, art. 161349 Car System Digital Beginner’s Set, art. 161355 (Software, Master, 3 satellites) Expansion module, art. 161352 Stop section, art. 161675 Branch-off junction, art. 161677 Parking space, art. 161674 3 Sensors, art. 161773 Traffic-Control, art. 161651 161677 (H0, N) Branch-off junction 161773 (H0, N) 3 Sensors Whenever it is activated the magnetism of the branch-off junction steers a vehicle onto a second turning-off guide wire. This occurs via the magnet fastened to the steering slider built into the vehicles. For Car System Digital operation you only need sensors if you want to perform functional changes in areas that are not covered by the satellites, for instance in tunnels, underground garages or other shadow areas on your model layout. Of course you also always have the possibility to control consuming devices through checkback signals sent by sensors.
Car System Digital I Software HIGHEST DEMANDS – MET AMAZINGLY SIMPLY 8 The »Car System Digital« software provides central control of your miniature road traffic and a permanent survey on your computer, independently of the size of your installation, density of traffic, or complexity of our traffic scenarios. Thanks to the nearly cableless structure and virtual recording of circuit, realization will only require minimal technical means. Highest priority is given to the pleasure of driving with fascinating vehicles. Your individual installation Your road net is recorded, drawn und stored, geometrically correct, in the software through a simple drive of a digital vehicle covering each possible itinerary only once. After you have subse- quently indicated the existing turnouts, you are able to set up on your circuit layout, using the mouse, as many monobloc sections as you want for the most varied traffic scenarios. The software interface offers you the possibility to survey the traffic flow with all scenarios, and to control them centrally. min.

Car System Digital I Software 9 Virtual sections Exact location makes any insertion of sensors into the road unneces- sary. After they have been installed, virtual sections or point signals can be hidden, if desired, or only displayed when activated to ensure a better survey. A digital vehicle that approaches virtual traffic lights will slow its speed depending on its distance to the point signal. Braking distances will thus be of varying length, but braking never is abrupt. Automations and traffic signs It’s your choice whether you want to drive manually or have the entire installation monitored by automations: this includes, among other things, all traffic regulations, traffic light sequences, direction signals at turnouts, speed changes, loudspeaker sounds or light functions of your digital vehicle such as headlights, flashlight turn signals or warning signal flashers. Simply realize each of your visions, and change it again as often as you like. The easiest setting variant is placing traffic signs by drag and drop. Also control- lable by App in 2019 Modules Location by ultrasounds: Each digital vehicle features an ultrasonic transmitter in the roof and constantly transmits its position via the satellites. Processing its XYZ coordinates allows to display the position and movement of the digital vehicle in real time on the software interface. By combining measurements and calculations the position is correct- ly displayed at all times, even during the passage through a tunnel. Communication by radio: Each digital vehicle features an integrated DCC decoder and radio transmitter/receiver. After being switched on, the digital vehicle is identified by the digital master and visualized with all its features on the user interface. The vehicle is controlled by radio. Distance control between digital vehicles is fully automatic.

Car System I Overview CAR SYSTEM – THE CLASSIC INSTALLATION For over 25 years now, Car System has been the eye-catcher on all installations of car fans among model-makers. The prerequisites to livening up any model landscape with turbu- lent street traffic in a fascinating way are conceivably simple. All you need for this purpose is a Car System vehicle, a road made of wood and FALLER’s speciality guide wire embedded in it. It’s guaran- teed amazement and ecstasy! Operated by a built-in motor and fitted with a magnet fastened to a small steering glider rotating the front axle to and for every Car System vehicle neatly follows the run of the guide wire. This will allow you already to let a vehicle drive very simple rounds with minimum technical means. There certainly are exciting routes everywhere on your installation, and you will find Car System vehicles suitable for the most varied themes from page 20. Should you want a vehicle to stop briefly, in front of a zebra crossing for instance, simply use the component »Stop point«. For the option allow- ing to take different routes, use the component »Turnout«. All control components are installed under the board, thus the third one called a »Parking space« too, which is used for the permanent stopping of vehicles. To actuate these control components it is usually easiest to use some push buttons. You will find a gener- al view of all control modules from page 28. 15 Should the traffic flow without any action on your part, it is sufficient to build a small »sen- sor« into the course of the road. Whenever a Car System vehicle drives over that sensor, a component will receive the pulse for switching. In such a case automatic control is obtained by connecting sensors and components to the »Traffic Control« unit that features several inputs and outputs to this end. That »Traffic Control« also allows to handle simultaneously several traffic scenarios connected to it. Pulses can be transmitted to the »Traffic Control« not only via sensors, but also via any keys, switches or switching tracks. Traffic gets particularly realistic when using various light signals such as traffic lights, road blocks in front of street building sites, or radar speed checks, which can be regulated, if de- sired, through the »Traffic Light Control« unit. All products suitable for road construction and the complete equipment of a circuit with light signals can be found from page 32. The Car System vehicle »They drive by themselves! How does that work?« This is a question we hear quite often, because after all, this is characteristic of the fascination of the FALLER Car System. As if driven by a ghost hand, the cars and trucks drive along and stop at red lights and railway crossings. Of course, it is no secret how it works! We simply need to take a closer look at the vehicle: 1 2 3 4 5 6 Powerfull bell-type armature motor with up to 800 charging cycles and more than 2,000 continuous-duty hours ON/OFF slide switch for start ing and stopping the vehicle Extra powerful permanent magnet mounted on the three-point- bearing front axle for exact track holding even in sharp bends Exhausted storage batteries can be revived through the charging socket Rear-axle drive units (shaft, worm gear and drive worm) The vehicles can be stopped via a reed contact at stops (such as bus stops, traffic lights, level crossings) 3 6 1 5 2 4

Platform bodywork: Fastening according to the cutout of the platform. Trunks and tarpaulins 6.8 m long in the original: Intermediate plate of conversion chassis can be shortened. In the first picture this is approx. the rear length of the black intermediate plate, which is longer than the green PCB. Trunks and tarpaulins 7.45 m long in the original: After mounting, the trunk or tarpaulin features a corresponding pro- jecting length at the rear. Visible only when you examine the vehicle’s underside. 19 The assembly of the driver cab is identical on all stationary models: Remove the separator on the frame of the driver cab bottom: on the small bearing frame of the cab bottom the small separator has to be removed using nippers. All cabs from HERPA cab-over-engine trucks can be used, except Renault models, though. Fix the frame of the driver cab bottom: the frame of the driver cab is fixed on the conversion chassis with instant adhesive Expert Rapid, Art. 170500. For neat pinpoint application of the adhesive we recommend to use a fine dosing needle suitable for instant adhesive. Clip the bottom part of the cab (mud guard, access): on the inside of the mudguard, using a sharp knife, cut out adequate recesses to give the front wheels some clearance when steering. Place the driver cab: finally plug the driver cab onto its bearing frame and fasten it by means of bumper and HERPA standard crossmember. Completely modified vehicle model: Conversion time approx. 5 – 10 minutes.

Module composed of 2 relays (12 V DC) on small PCB that allows to trigger various actions on the model layout by plugging some wire straps (also called jumpers). - Connected to the »Traffic-Control«, Art. 161651 or the »Extension module«, Art. 161352 the module can switch on and off e.g. a smoke generator, Art. 180690 or a modeller’s synchronous motor, Art. 180629 (alternating current). - Connected to an »Extension module« one of the outputs can actuate a motor in forward motion, while the other output will actuate the motor in reverse motion, by plugging the wire straps accordingly. - It is also possible for the module to link various digital systems potential-free: one of the systems switches the relay on and that signal will be processed in another system. - By plugging the wire straps accordingly, two signals can be generated out of one signal: since a normally closed contact and a normally open contact of the relay are used, either one contact or the other will be closed depending on whether the relay has pulled up or is open. By suitably connecting the relay module it is also possible to reverse a signal. - By connecting the relay module in series, it is possible to switch higher current values or even other voltages (e.g. an alternating voltage) on modules the outputs of which are too weak for the required current. Further possible uses are described in the instruction manual supplied.

Car System I Roadway design MAKING ROADWAY DESIGN A CERTAIN SUCCESS Roads are every city’s nerve cords just as a design will only truly come alive with animated streets. The right basic knowledge and the extensive FALLER accessories make roadway designs a breeze. There are different techniques and accessories depending on what you wish to accomplish. 37 FALLER Laser-Street FALLER Laser-Street features prefabricated street elements which simply connect together and already have a groove for the contact wire. Custom roadway routeings and integrating curves, passing points, branches, bridges and slip roads can also be implemented just as easily. Roadways are particularly simple and accurate to design with FALLER Laser-Street, without foregoing the familiar variety in the design. Customisation The groove cutter also allows roadway designs to be customised to your ideas. We merely recommend a minimal curve radius of 150 mm to ensure a smooth flow of oncoming traffic for all Car System vehicles. The unmatched routeing allows you to include unique design features in detail. See page 41 for additional customisations. Galleries Our galleries will guide you without a lot of words, illustrating key process steps. You will then know how roadways are installed and how to plan the installation of various components. FALLER Laser-Street roadway elements can be used temporarily or as a complete roadway system. »Finishing and decorating« will provide you with everything you need to know about decorating your new roadway. Materials We recommend using rigid foam sheets and a wooden frame for creating model designs. Your design will be lighter and easier to work with. For streets we recommend using 3 mm thick three-layered poplar plywood, which is also what we use for FALLER Laser-Street elements.
Car System I Roadway design I Laser-Street Laser-Street – Streets in quick build 1 2 Street layout: First, the street layout is arranged by simply placing the roadway segments where desired. This is child‘s play, with the help of the connecting segments. All roadway segments have a laser-cut groove in which the contact wire is later placed. Important: Glue the subsurface of the segments! Bends: Just like in real traffic vehicles swing out. This means that the guide wire is directed towards the exterior whenever the course of the road features a bend. Bend segments can be used on both sides, so that the same segment allows to build left-hand and right-hand turns. 38 4 5 Variable circuit layout: Variants in the course of the road are very easy to design using the element of flexible roadway. That part is of a most versatile use and allows a suitable circuit layout in extremely reduced space. Without much effort, you have brought your personal touch in the roadway. Combined method: Whoever wants to individualize it even more, will be able to design their own roadway sections using 3 mm thick plywood. Simply separate the connection points of the roadway elements and modify them to obtain the required length. Then integrate the 3 mm thick plywood. 7 8 Mounting aids: All roadway segments have been prepared to allow building-in functional elements. Whether it be a branch-off junction (art. 161677), a stop point (art. 161675), a parking place (art. 161674) or a sensor (art. 161773). For each possible element we have provided a mounting aid. Drilled holes: For the branch-off junction the opening and the shoulder have been cut already for the course of the guide wire, so that the junction merely has to be inserted and fixed. At all appropriate points in the course of the guide wire, holes have been drilled, in which sensors can be inserted. 10 11 Applying filler: To obtain a smooth roadway and eliminate any further inequalities, seal the surface using some knifing filler (art. 180500). Road coating: Whoever wants to obtain a very smooth surface, will be able to eliminate small inequalities using fine emery paper after the knifing filler has set. The important point is that the guide wire must still show through everywhere. Now, you can finish the work using roadway paint (art. 180506).
Car System I Roadway design I Laser-Street 3 Transitions of terrain: Roadway segments consist of 3 mm thick three-layer plywood and are easy to bend, yet they are still very sturdy. Small rigid-foamed blocks rapidly allow you to build in differences of level into the road and to design transitions in the relief accordingly. 6 Groove cutter: Then draw the desired course for the lane and cut the groove intend- ed for the guide wire using the groove cutter (art. 161669). It could hardly be easier and quicker to implement one’s own ideas. You have every possibility to build individually, while simultaneously exploiting the advantages offered by the roadway elements. 9 Mounting: The various mounting aids allow you a bus stop within a few min- utes, for instance. Moreover, these parts allow you to understand the general building system ruling the structure of functional articles, which considerably simplifies the implementation of your own ideas. 12 Decoration: Depending on your own ideas, you may want to decorate the road with roadway markings, marker posts, crash barriers, traffic signs and traffic boards. It is not necessary to conceal the road verge in a complicated way. Usually applying some knifing filler or shaping it with scatter material will do. It’s a very simple way to obtain an appropriate road verge. Possible setup 39 Laser-Street Basic-Set »Street elements« With these parts which are easily to processed by inter- linking street parts that already contain the groove for the guide wire, different single and double lane streets can be built.

Car System I Roadway design Custom roadway design To integrate FALLER Car System into your existing design the so-called sunken method may be right for you. Use the Groove Cutter (art. 161669) to customise the routeing of the contact wire and adapt the flow of traffic to local factors. Preparation Our recommendation: Use rigid foam sheets with a wooden frame for the base frame and use 3 mm thick poplar plywood for streets and other constructions. This is the maximum distance a stopping section coil may be from the top of the roadway. All functional elements can now be installed directly below the roadway. This will also reduce the overall weight of your design. 1 Make the surface of the roadway as smooth as possible and consider the turning radius of the vehicle to be used in the width. Longer vehicles require a wider road, especially for curves, than cars. The minimum curve radius should therefore not be less than 150 mm. Planning: Mark the roadway by outlining it on the plywood and perform a test run to ensure the roadway is uniform. To do so lay out the wire, affix it with an adhesive strip and test the route with a vehicle. 41 Please refer to the following chart for minimum roadway widths: Single lane roadway width H0 N Straight areas 50 mm 30 mm Curves 70 mm 45 mm Upward and downward hills When constructing upward or downward hills or crests it’s import- ant to round the roadway at the respective transitions for vehicle control. Upward hills should not be steeper than 12 % (120 mm over 1000 mm roadway). Once you know how the roadways should be routed you can start. 2 Cutting: The Groove Cutter (art. 161669) is ideal for installing the special contact wire. This small machine features a slitting cutter which is guided along the marked path. Cutting the right groove height and width allows for optimal contact wire installation. 3 Installing contact wire: Press the contact wire into the groove with a flat head screw- driver or joiner, ensuring it is correctly seated in the groove. Precision with FALLER special contact wire Use only FALLER special contact wire (art. 161670) to build road- ways, as using magnetic tape or soft iron wire may result in unwanted functional problems. To ensure traffic flows smoothly without incidents neither the individual magnetic fields of vehi- cles or functional elements nor the overall magnetic field of your model set should be impaired. Using the FALLER special contact wire will prevent potential malfunction sources in traffic caused by weaker, stronger or permanent local magnetic fields.
Car System I Roadway design The right scale The ideal tool for the individual street layout. The machine is equipped with a slotting cutter. The adjustment slider on both sides of the cutter guarantees the best possible result. In this way, it is possible to cut the exact depth the contact wire requires into the roadway. It doesn‘t get better and more precise than this. The groove cutter can be run straight off our transformer (art. 180641)! 161669 (H0, N) Groove cutter 42 This groove cutter was developed and made especially for laying the contact wire in the FALLER Car System.
