The SIC24 and the improved SIC24AD are designed and manufactured by Team Digital.

SIC24

Discontinued

The SIC24 is suited to control various types of signals and indicators on a layout or a CTC panel. It can be used as a signal controller, to indicate block occupancy and turnout position or as a grade crossing gate controller with flashing signals. Combinations of some of these features are also possible. The SIC24 is compatible with many DCC systems.

Features

  • Built-in logic for automatically controlling signals using block detection
  • Configurable to model many signaling systems
  • Computer not required, but can be used with one
  • 24 inputs
  • 8 outputs
  • Serial communications between boards
  • LocoNet compatible

The SIC24 sends and receives switch commands, switch position feedback and sensor/block detection messages. It uses these same messages to communicate between multiple SIC24s and to determine signal states. All communication is over a serial bus, reducing the needed number of wires to implement a signal system. The serial bus is based on Digitrax’s LocoNet® and some features are unique to a Digitrax system. However, a Digitrax DCC system is not required for operation or programming. The SIC24 is compatible with LocoNet® block detectors such as the Digitrax BDL16 or detectors connected to its inputs such as the Team Digital DBD22 .

SIC24AD

The SIC24AD is an updated version of the SIC24. It features the following improvements:

  • Smart Programming improved with additional options for easier setup.
  • CVs 1 to 9 have changed to be similar to SRC16.
  • Decoder Configuration CV9 has some different options. No option to support Digitrax SE8C.
  • Digitrax specific - improved LocoNet® interface resulting in fewer grounding issues with LocoNet®.
  • DCC to serial bus gateway option.
