This module provides Wi-Fi control of DCC locomotives and accessories using your NCE Command Station from a hand-held such as a phone, tablet or dedicated throttle that uses the WiThrottle protocol authored by Brett Hoffman.

It provides a WiThrottle Server, just like JMRI except that a computer is unnecessary – it's all in this little module.

  • Provides an NCE CAB Bus interface - the NCE standard to connect Cabs to Command Stations.
  • Translates all the WiThrottle commands to NCE Cab Bus commands.
  • Provides an on-board loco roster and turnout list and allows you to maintain it using web pages on your browser.
  • Supports four connected throttles out of the box, when connected to a home network the number of throttles increases to eight.

Installs on your layout to provide Wi-Fi control of an NCE Command Station by acting as a Cab on the NCE CAB Bus.

The NCE command station is master on the CAB Bus and polls cab addresses. The WFD-30 responds to its designated cab address and represents Wi-Fi connected hand-held devices that use the WiThrottle protocol as authored by Brett Hoffman and used by JMRI. The WFD-30 converts all WiThrottle commands to NCE CAB Bus commands including speed/direction, functions and turnouts.

  • The WFD-30 does not handle DCC CV Programming.
