PLEASE NOTE: A dedicated power booster is required with this device!
You will need this Universal Set Speed Zero Packet Generator if you are using Soundtraxx decoders. This component can be operated via a DCC CAB and is suitable for all systems. This device includes a “Set Speed Zero” packet encoder. This code generator broadcasts a set speed zero command and is addressable. Suitable for those layouts running SoundTraxx, older NCE and other decoders that do not recognize DC conversion.
The Set Speed Zero Packet Generator can be used in place of the “Brake Generator BitSwitch”.
The output is connected to a dedicated power booster that will supply ALL C & D inputs on the BitSwitches.
Because the track power output from this Speed Zero Booster is subject to minimal loads (applying power to sections of track where trains are stopped), it can be daisy chained to a large number of BitSwitches so only one booster dedicated to the Set Speed Zero generator is required for most layouts.
The Set Speed Zero Generator is addressable as an accessory using your throttle or command station and can be turned on/off as desired.
The address is programmable from 1-9999.
The “SET SPEED ZERO” VERSION IS REQUIRED FOR LAYOUTS OPERATING DECODERS FROM SOUNDTRAXX AND ANY MFGS THAT DO NOT OFFER “BRAKE ON ANALOG DC.” Also requires ONE dedicated DCC power booster.
If your railroad has DCC and you want to automate, you need DCC-Bitswitch. Bitswitches are compatible with all DCC systems and locomotive decoders that respond to Brake on DC Set Speed Zero (Brake Generators).
If you intend to use Bitswitch for O or G Scale, please note that fact in the “special notes” box when checking out!
