|In January 2001 the Zmod standard was
created in Norway and it is based on
the following main rules:
The module box:
The modules are build in 6mm plywood, width 40cm, height 10cm. Recommended
Recommended height rail top on module: 127cm.
Laying the track:
The modules have a double track with distance 2.5cm centerline on both
centerline between the tracks is placed 10 cm from the front edge. The
tracks are placed on 3mm roadbed.
Module height is then 10,6cm (
10cm.module + 3mm cork + 3mm track )
Between the modules, the tracks should be mounted with 0.5mm gap, so
the gap on the rails between modules will be approx. 1 mm.
Curve modules may use the smallest radius 195mm, track type 8520. The
smallest radius, track 8510, 145mm is not used.
There are no specific demands to mesuments and type of modules.
Actual modules may be straight, curved or end module.
The optional back wall is 30cm high and do not need to be installed.
The modules are connected together with 4 mm labplugs ("banastikker"), the
same as for the
ELFA catalog nr:
Rail 1 from front: Left side: female contact, right side: male connector.
Rail 2 from front: Left side: male connector, right side: female contact.
Rail 3 from front: Left side: female contact, right side: male connector.
Rail 4 from front: Left side: male connector, right side: female contact.

Jig for correct position of tracks:
Many different types of modules can be created. Below you can see examples
of types and assembles.
