Q: Can I use Other Brands of Boosters on my Digitrax System?

Yes, but they must be connected in very specific ways. Only the Uhlenbrock Intellibox systems can be directly connected over the Loconet. Any other system will require you to make special cables to connect the other boosters.

You can use a booster from Lenz, the directions for connecting it are on their website in the LV101 manual. #1. It's also possible to drive a Digitrax booster using a Lenz command station

Q: Digitrax PR4 Drivers

Drivers may be required for your computer to recognize a Digitrax PR3 or PR4/PR4 Xtra.

Windows 10 and 11 should recognize the device and automatically install the correct driver.

  • The driver will say Microsoft
    • Installing drivers from Digitrax will say Digitrax, but are essentially the same.

They will work under MacOS when using software such as JMRI without the need to install additional drivers.
