Additional control handsets and power boosters for expanding layouts
ADS-2sx is an easy-to-use 2-way accessory decoder for solenoids with power-off memory.
ADS-2sx has a CDU built-in to each output and is the most reliable and most powerful solenoid decoder available, yet it stores all its power on-board so does not drain your DCC track power!
RJ12 6pin 6-way Curly Cord For NCE Powercab and Cobalt Alpha – 2m/6ft when extendedCan also be used for NCE Procab connections.This is a fully wired cord to replace the flat main control cable supplied with the NCE Powercab.
Additional control handsets allow more than one operator to run trains on a layout at the same time. Many control stations use the Lenz XpressNet communications system and will accept control signals from any XpressNet handset.Starter DCC base units will usually supply up to 3 amps of current, sufficient to run up to 5 or 6 locomotives in N or OO and capable of running up to 3 O gauge locomotives without sound systems. The addition of sound to a locomotive fleet increases the power consumption and can limit the number of locomotives running.Power boosters provide additional current supply capacity, allowing the power demands of a larger layout to be split into 'power districts' (eg up line & down line), spreading the current consumption between the base station and booster supplies.
