The DEPOT (Desktop Engineering Programming and Operations Tool) is a comprehensive software programming tool from TCS. As you might have gathered from the name, this is a one-stop solution for TCS decoders, throttles, and other trackside devices. Once the DEPOT is downloaded to a user's computer, it can communicate with your layout, throttles, and decoders via WiFi or USB connections, in the same way as JMRI and other model railroad software applications.
Inside the DEPOT, you'll find specific programming tools for custom sound decoder programming, throttle firmware upgrades, sound downloads, operations tools, and much more. Moving beyond the core components, we will continue to roll out new features as users request them.
This software is going to continue to grow with additional throttle and decoder tools. We will push new updates as we revise and add new functions to the DEPOT in the near future.
