Mid Point and Max Voltage

Posted by on Dec 18, 2014 in Miscellaneous, Tony's Tips |

Mid Point Voltage

The mid-point voltage adjustment allows the motor speed curve to be altered at step 15, the midpoint of the motor voltage curve by using CV06.

Max Voltage

The maximum voltage adjustment lets you set the maximum voltage to be applied at the top speed step. Use the maximum voltage CV05 to limit the top speed of your locomotives.

Start voltage, mid point voltage and maximum voltage can be used to quickly and effectively set your locomotive’s throttle response curve to simulate the prototype.
