DB150 Command Station / Booster

  • Full LocoNet Capability
  • Up to 22 locomotives and 22 throttles in command station mode.
  • Can be used as an Intelligent Auto Reversing Booster
  • Use with any LocoNet throttle
  • Built in broadcast write only programmer
  • Five Amp Booster Rated
  • Many command station options are user customizable.
  • Over temperature & short circuit protection
  • Selectable multi-scale operation for N, HO, and large-scale layouts
  • Track Status indicator shows voltage and signal type
  • Stabilized Track Drive Output
  • Over Voltage Protected
  • Sync output configures DB150 Operating Mode & connects the DB150 to expansion boosters
  • High impedance balanced or unbalanced signal input receivers on the LocoNet Interface allow boosting of several different types of command control signals
  • Auto shutdown if command control drive signal is lost so that the layout will not convert to DC operation if a cable or connection is broken. The trains won't just "take-off" if they are not getting the DCC signal


  • Simple, cost effective throttles feature one large knob for speed control and a direction switch for direction control. Great add on throttle for all Digitrax Starter Sets, especially Zephyrs!
  • Locomotives are selected with dial switches, immediately see which loco motive is assigned to the throttle. Unique locomotive selection allows you to pick up running locomotives at their current speed.
  • Utility Throttles can control 4 functions. These throttles are perfect for casual users and for those who prefer a more "traditional" throttle.
  • The Utility Throttles are LocoNet Throttles, designed to operate on existing Digitrax LocoNet systems. These throttles can acquire & run one locomotive or consist (even the ones with four digit addresses). The user can control speed, direction, & functions for these units. By pressing Run/Stop, the user can stop the unit he is running but will not stop the whole layout.
  • 128 speed step operation
  • LED indicators, selection knobs and large speed control knob show throttle status at a glance & make operation easy.
  • Control F0, F1, F2 & F3 from the keypad. These functions can be used for lighting, sound, etc.
  • Easy access to two digit addresses 00-98.
  • Address 99 is set up so that you can use it to select locomotives with four digit addresses. Gives access to all DCC decoder addresses.
