Why NCE does not sell a wireless Power Cab:
We get this request frequently from those who belong to a club that uses wireless, but at home; they only need a regular tethered Power Cab. By law, If we sell it as a radio-equipped Power Cab set, it must function out of the box in all capacities. That would mean we would be required to package it with an RB02 and an SB5. This would almost be the equivalent of a PH-Pro R system!
You have two options, and both require an RB02 Radio Receiver (5240023)
Step 2 - Option A: Power Cab + SB5 smart booster (5240027) and Send your Power Cab in to get Wireless added to it for $106+ return shipping charges https://ncedcc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201480075-Step-2-Option-A-Powercab-SB5-Smartbooster
Step 2 - Option B: Buy a Second NCE cab that is already Wireless.
Add a Wireless Pro Cab (5240011). The exact same loco operating capabilities, programming abilities, and button layout as your Power Cab.
Add a Wireless Cab06 (5240040) Smaller engineer road cab with the full functionality of running trains with no locomotive programming access.
To have wireless ADDED to your Power Cab:
No RMA number is needed for upgrades. Please put your first and last name LEGIBLY on the outside of the package. Include your contact info (email and phone number) and a detailed description of what you want done. We will contact you before work is done to make payment arrangements if payment is needed. Credit cards are handled via online invoices. Please note that NCE does not have an electronic notification system. You will not be notified when we have received your package. Contact the shipping company for that information. FYI- the backlog is 4 to 5 weeks from when the package arrives.
