The new STP release STP V5.42 which was introduced during the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2019 is now available, all open orders have been delivered. The new release is already in use on several test layouts (including MX10 and StEin modules) with very positive feedback.  

New features of STP V5.42 are:

  • Inclusion of the new Zimo StEin module for track section, turnout and signal control incl. usage of the contact inputs
  • Macros simplify usage of repeatedly used elements in train routes
  • Increased safety for train number displays (consistency checks)
  • New route commands

  • multiple additional extensions and bug fixes

Customers who already have upgraded to STP V5.40 will get the update for free. Please contact your dealer

STP Version 5.40

With this version STP fully supports the MX10 as well as the new StEin multi-function module (for track sections, turnouts and signals)

MX10 firmware 01.22.0150 or newer required, there are still some minor issues with turnouts controlled by MX8 modules - these will be solved in the upcoming MX10 firmware release

The Roco track occupancy detector 10808 is also supported  (can only be used via direct connection to MX10, not via CANKey)

Additional user defined colours, train info window, simolified display of possible routes and much more

 For owners of STP V5.30 there is a greatly reduced update offer available

·         Triggering of automatic functions by variables

·         Detour routes with three buttons e.g. for the definition of drive-through routes (start - via - target)

·         Turning and mirroring of switchboard sections

·         Check for duplicate address use for section and accessory modules

·         Ethernet network support for MX10 and connection between multiple STP PCs
