Wireless Cab Upgrade Costs

To get radio firmware version on a Pro Cab or converted Power Cab, turn off the cab, then turn off the DCC system. Hit the red e-stop button to turn the throttle back on. You will see the wireless version on the screen. The current WIRELESS radio version is 1.7.

Note**  Version 1.5 cabs DO NOT need to be updated unless you also have Cab06s being used on he same layout.

However, If you have a new cab or updated cab with wireless version 1.7 the RB02 must be version 2.5. Note that this is different from the Pro Cab keypad and display firmware which is always 1.3.  


Any cab that is NOT version 1.5 or higher will need a new wireless board with internal antenna installed. The cost for this is $106+ return shipping. You will also need to send in your RB02 radio base station if it is not version 2.5. Check the sticker on the bottom. If you have a Cab06, the RB02 must be version 2.5. To upgrade your RB02 to the current wireless firmware is $30 per item + return shipping.
