Power Pro by NCE

The Power Pro is the only fully featured DCC system offered by NCE. It consists of the Pro Cab and a command station/booster.

The system was originally marketed as the Powerhouse Pro

This system is often confused with the Power Cab, whose throttle is similar in appearance. The difference is the Power Pro throttle offers more features as it is purely a throttle, with a standalone command station.
