Throttles, Transceivers & New Xtra Systems

    1. Supports 29 functions: F0-F28  (Note that F0 is actually two functions F0Forward and F0Reverse)
    2. Convenient Step By Step Throttle Option Set Up

i. Makes it simple to customize DT402 series throttles using throttle option set up

ii. Throttle instructions are much less cryptic and easier to understand

    1. Tethered operation is supported by the DT402
    2. All DT402 series throttles are Infra-Ready and will work with UR90 IR receivers and the IR receivers in the UR91 & UR92 also.
    3. Simplex Radio continues to be supported by the DT402R/UR91 combination.
    4. Duplex Radio is supported by the DT402D/UR92 combination
    5. There is a small price increase on the new products due to increased manufacturing costs.

  1. DIGITRAX DUPLEX RADIO COMPONENTS AND FEATURES:

    1. DT402D is the Duplex Radio version of the DT402 throttle.
    2. UR92 is the Duplex Radio Transceiver.   It sends AND receives information to and from the layout and the DT402D throttles respectively.  It also includes support for sending InfraRed signals to the layout as well.  Simplex Radio communication is NOT supported in the UR92 but will run on any LocoNet layout at the same time as Duplex Radio.
    3. UR92 is a fully-compatible LocoNet device which means all three technologies (Infrared, Simplex Radio and Duplex Radio) will work at the same time on your LocoNet system:

i. Simplex Radio using UR91 and DT402R, DT400R, UT4R and other throttles with part numbers ending in R can be run on the same LocoNet as Duplex equipment

ii. InfraRed operation with UR90 IR receivers can also be run on the same LocoNet as Duplex equipment.

    1. Duplex Radio operates in the 2.4 Ghz band.
    2. Supports dozens of duplex throttles at the same time.
    3. One UR92 will provide adequate coverage for most layouts.
    4. Duplex Radio range is approximately a 300 ft diameter circle
    5. The Group Name feature allows multiple layouts to operate independently in close proximity to each other, such as at a train show.
    6. Duplex Radio allows

i. Locomotive selection and operation without the need to plug in to LocoNet

ii. All programming modes can be used without plugging in

iii. Duplex link to/from the layout

iv. Use of existing LocoNet devices without modification, simply plug in UR92 and start using DT402D throttles.

Which DCC deocder is right for the job?

March 10, 2009

The answer could be that there is more then one DCC decoder that could work for your specific application.  Also many decoders could be labeled for a particular scale such as then Digitrax DZ143PS (indicating Z Scale) or DH123D (Indicating HO Scale) or an NCE N14IP (indicating N Scale).  In most cases you can use a Z or N Scale decoder in larger HO engines, in fact this is sometimes necessary to do in order for a decoder to fit!

The main factors to consider when choosing a decoder are:

What functions do I need?

What is the max stall current of the motor?

And do you want sound or the ability to add on sound?

And of course… will it fit?

If you have any questions check out our Knowledge Base or send us an email at info@dccinstalled.com
