Part#: LNL81325

With LCS Wi-Fi, you can operate your model railroad using devices such as the Apple iPad®, computers, smart phones or other Wi-Fi devices. LCS Wi-Fi can create its own independent WiFi network or join an existing one.

Up to 15 Wi-Fi devices can be connected at once. Each connected device requires software written specifically for the LCS system. Lionel's LCS App is available as a free download for the iPad. In addition, Lionel has made the LEGACY & LCS protocol codes available to third party developers.

A Base/No Base switch lets you configure an LCS system without a Lionel command base. Choose this type of installation if you are exclusively running conventional locomotives, but want iPad control over your switches. Or if you are using another type of locomotive control system, such as DCC, but want to be able to use BPC2, ASC2 or other LCS modules to control your layout.

LCS Wi-Fi gets its operating power on the same cables used for data transmission. One 6-81499 LCS Power Supply and DB9 cable is required per LCS installation (even in a "no base" configuration).
