This article was last updated on Oct. 18, 2010, 1:42 p.m. | Print Article | Leave Feedback

Transponding is proprietary technology of Digitrax Inc.  Transponding works with existing DCC compatible layouts. 

RailCom is proprietary technology of Lenz Elecktronik. This is sometimes referred to as "bi-directional communication."  It requires modifications to existing DCC equipment for proper operation.

The two methods are not compatible, they do not use the same technology.
