Start Voltage

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

You can set the start voltage by using CV02. The higher the start voltage, the higher the locomotive’s initial speed when started. This adjustment is used to trim the locomotive to compensate for its motor efficiency. If you have a locomotive that takes a lot of voltage to get started, this adjustment can be helpful.
