Important! When a Mobile Station with an older version of the
internal database than the version present in the Central
Station is connected to that Central Station, the databa-
se in the Mobile Station is automatically updated. This
process can take as long as 2 minutes!
These settings are required for an update of the software
in the Central Station. Please note the guidelines for the
various update packets for these settings.
Certain functions can be blocked in this sub-
menu. The individual functions are activated or
deactivated by simply touching the square control
area in front of each function.
6. Power Requirements
The power output for the layout can deliver a current with a maxi-
mum of 3 amps, when the 60052 / 60055 transformer is used. The
maximum power is therefore about 45 to 48 VA. The programming
track is supplied with a maximum of 1 amp. When this limit is
reached, the Central Station will switch to emergency halt. This ope-
rating problem can be corrected by reducing the power requirements
on the layout.
The following list of power requirements will help you compute your
overall power requirements:

If the power supplied from the Central Station is not enough over
time, then the layout must be divided up into areas of equal size in
terms of the power consumed. Each of these areas is then supplied
with power from the Central Station or from a Boosters. The power
supply to these layout areas must be electrically separated from each
other (third rail insulation for H0, separation of the rail in 1 Gauge
connected to the red wire from the Central Station and the Boosters).
See the instructions for the 60129 Connect 6017 for examples of
how to separate the power supplies.
7. Additional Notes:
Please note the following additional special features about this
version of the Central Station:
1. You may have function problems with the ﬁrst generation of 763xx
series color light signals with their integrated decoders. Ask your
authorized digital dealer about the procedure for updating the old
signals for the new ones.
2. The 7686 digital turntable is (still) not supported with its own
3. It is not possible to take a locomotive on a layout from Märklin
Systems to another operating system. Catenary is not to be used
with Märklin Systems to power locomotives and powered units.
Caution! The Central Station will suffer damages if it is connected
electrically to other operating systems!

sequence! We are referring here to the sequence described in this
instruction manual. Don't confuse the cable connection for the
layout with the connection for the programming track.
