Connecting ECoS Cab to your model railroad is very easy. Just follow the steps below and you’ll be ready to run trains in no time.

  • Connect your command station* by ethernet to a wireless access point. This could well be the same access point you use for your household.
  • Connect your device to your wireless access point.
  • Launch ECoS Cab and add a new profile.
  • Type in your command station’s IP address at the Profile settings page and save.
  • You’re ready to go.

* Supported command stations:

  • ECoS (art. 50000) from ESU (not fully tested)
  • ECoS 2 (art. 50200) from ESU
  • ECoS 3 (art. 50210) from ESU

To make application work correctly you MUST turn ON the "Enable legacy mode" option in ECoS settings (Setup 3), since from firmware version 4.0 ECoS changed the communication messages interface.

To use the application in remote connection mode (i.e. to control ECoS via internet) you have to:

  • turn on the "Use remote connection" option in the app profile settings
  • specify Address as the DDNS address of your router
  • enable port forwarding in your router
  • specify port in your router mapped to your ECoS port 15471 (used by default)
  • specify port in your router mapped to your ECoS port 80 to get access to ECoS built-in web-server
