Components

muletto-ardutrainYou can find all the components you need to make this system on the internet and in a physical electronics store. I chose Futura Elettronica online shop because it sells almost all the components you need. Some components are sold through Amazon and 4DBrix.

The following table lists all the components for ArduTrain WiFi: there are mandatory ones, which must be purchased to build the base of the system; and then there are the columns that indicate the various additional features (trains, switches, lights & motors, automations and video).

For example, if I want to add trains and switches control, I have to buy all the products marked in the columns: base, trains and switches. If I want to make the full version of ArduTrain WiFi I have to buy all the components listed.

My advice is: read the whole guide, get an idea of where you want to place the components on your diorama and then buy what you need; so you know, for example, how many extensions you have to buy to connect all the components scattered on your diorama, or how many sensors or servomotors you need.

If you live in Europe, you can buy these components on Bricklink in “4DBrix Europe” store. Be careful to buy the right motor for left or right switches!
