If I read the Operations Manual correctly, I need to have the Power Cab plugged into the system for the Cab06 to work.
Or will it work when I send the Power Cab into NCE for upgrade to radio? Thank—-Bill C.
Hi Bill, the Cab06 will function with either the Power Cab or the SB5. If the SB5 is not providing DCC power [booster and command station], then you need the Power Cab providing DCC power for the Cab06 to function.
If the SB5 is providing DCC power, then the Power Cab reverts automatically to being just a Pro Cab throttle. Remember, the Power Cab [+/-1.5amps] is a low power booster/command station version of the SB5 [5 amps].
