Gaugemaster DCC02 Prodigy Advance2 Starter Package
Product code: AA6540
PRODIGY ADVANCE2 consists of three elements.
The POWER PACK transforms the power from your mains socket ready for the
Base Unit. The BASE UNIT is the brains behind the operation. It contains
all the technology you need to send DCC commands to your trains and
accessories. However, short of turning the power on and off, you'll find
your closest companion is the Walkaround controller which plugs straight
into the Base Unit.
The WALKAROUND is a hand-held controller
that you use to send your commands to the Base Unit, which then sends
them on to the relevant decoder on your layout. You control the speed
and direction of your trains from here. One of the key features of DCC
operation is that each of your locomotives has a numeric address which
you select as and when you want to run that locomotive.
DCC allows you to run it anywhere on your
railway at the same time as other trains are moving as well. You can
operate points (individually or route set) and signals from the
Walkaround. You can use it to programme your decoders to replicate the
running characteristics of your locomotives, or even introduce a speed
clock that allows you to run a 24 hour timetable within one operating
The possibilities are almost endless with
DCC and with locomotives becoming available with factory-fitted decoders
as standard, we are entering an exciting new era. Of course, you can
also retro-fit your older locomotives with decoders if you wish.
Stuck where to put your DCC Controller? you
can now attach it to your layout using the DCC66 Prodigy Controller
Caddy. This unit has been designed to screw directly to your baseboard
and will fit most DCC Controllers and even mobile phones.
