Control Units & Technical Information
To what to you need to pay attention after a router reset?after a router reset, the IP address as well as the SSID of the router are reset to factory settings. How can I change my IP address from dynamic to static?If no router is used, the Z21 system can also be connected directly to a PC via a LAN cable. However, you must note that your PC uses a dynamic IP address setting by default and is waiting to be assigned an address by the "Administrator". However, the Z21 system has no "Administrator function". Support Twin-CenterDue to the age of the FLEISCHMANN Twin-Center, we can no longer provide detailed information or technical support.

Where can I find spare parts sheets or operating, decoder and CV instructions?You can find the operating instructions and the spare parts sheet on our website directly with the item in the section "Downloads". The corresponding spare parts can also be found there under "Spare parts".
How to transfer the library of the locomotives ?The transfer of the so-called locomotive library from one Multimaus to another is quite simple...

What to do when you have forgotten the parental control code or misplaced it?If you have forgotten the parental control code, only a reset of the MULTIMAUS will help. Can the MULTIMAUS read CV values?Basically, the MULTIMAUS CV values can not only be programmed, but also read out. Up to which CV value can the MULTIMAUS program and read out?When the firmware version 1.02 was used, the MULTIMAUS only could program and read out up to the CV value of 255. Update of the MULTIMAUSIf the MULTIMAUS needs to be brought up to date, the firmware update can be carried out in the following ways... Can I connect more MULTIMÄUSE to my central control or amplifier than the number of sockets might suggest?All sockets labeled with "Slave" or "X-Bus" can be redistributed or extended via the adapter 10758.
How does the installation of the camera locomotive work?Possible applications
The camera image of the camera can be read out either directly via I-host mode or indirectly via client mode.
What is Host Mode?Direct = Host Mode: Host mode is the direct connection to your camera locomotive. In this mode, the camera image can be read out, but the locomotive can not be controlled. What is client mode ?Indirect = Client Mode: Client mode is the indirect connection to your camera. Can the camera locomotives also be operated in analogue mode ?Of course, you can also operate all camera locomotives in analogue mode. What software do I need for my camera locomotive?You can only receive the image of the camera locomotives via programs which are specially developed for the camera locomotives. Error analysis - What can you do?Camera locomotive - test steps What is important when you use other routers or home network routers ?Other routers or home network routers may have different IP address settings than the pre-programmed TP-Link router, depending on the setting or manufacturer. What do I have to consider and why?Each router has a DHCP function, which can also be seen as a "mayor function".

Can I use a digital locomotive on an analogue model railway layout or does the decoder get destroyed ?Locomotives that have digital decoders easily can be used on analogue railway layouts without risk of damage. Was the connection wrong or the system not even connected ?Probably the most common mistake when connecting your Z21 system is the LAN connection. In most cases, the Z21® will be connected to the WAN socket (blue) instead of the LAN socket (yellow) on the router. As a result, the Z21 system is encapsulated in a separate network and therefore cannot be found by the Maintenance Tool. |
