Hornby launches Bluetooth Digital Control

Since launching its Zero 1 Digital Control System in the late 1970s, Hornby has innovated with technology and this year the company is set to launch its all-new HM7000 Bluetooth Digital Control System.

AT THE HEART of the new control system are a series of all-new Bluetooth decoders, which are available as standard motor control and digital sound decoders. These decoders can be operated on any layout – analogue or digital - through a new app-based controller that can be downloaded free to a smartphone or tablet via the Hornby website and app store. The controller communicates to Bluetooth receivers on each digital decoder.
