Different uses of the Powercab

The Powercab cab be used in several different ways.

1. The Powercab as a complete DCC system. In this configuration use the flat 6 wire cable, The Powercab Panel (PCP) and 13.8v DC power supply.

2. The Powercab as a regular Procab Throttle. This requires an SB5 Smartbooster or a 5 amp PH-Pro system. You can use the flat or coiled cable. Plug in like a regular cab and away you go. The Powercab Panel is no longer powered by the original power supply, it is plugged into the cab bus jack on the SB5/PH-Pro. The track is now powered from the booster or 5 amp system not the Powercab panel. The Powercab will still function as a Powercab when used with the original panel and power supply.

3. The Powercab as a wireless cab.  This requires an SB5 Smartbooster or a 5 amp PH-Pro system. The Powercab Panel is no longer powered by the original power supply. The track is now powered from the booster or 5 amp system not the Powercab panel. Will still function as a Procab(see above) or a Powercab when used with the original panel and power supply. Powercab will need to be upgraded to wireless for $90 by NCE. You will also need an RB02 Radio Base Station.
