Lenz LV Series Boosters

Power Station LV100

Three amp booster

LV101

5A booster

  • 8 user settable DCC track voltages allow for the user to customize the operation of the LV101 to their individual needs, a fault detection LED to assist the user in troubleshooting problems, and a RJ-45 plug-in I/O port. This I/O port is provided for use with Set-02 or for providing additional XpressNet power.
  • Opto-isolation to safely isolate your power station interface wiring from your track wiring. This eliminates any possibility for hidden ground loops through your power station.
  • Fail Safe runaway protection is provided by requiring a 7 volt signal on the DCC Control Bus (the C and D wires). This prevents the LV101 from accidentally sending out power to the track when the command station stops transmitting packets.

LV102

Five amp booster, supersedes previous models.

The LV102 uses the Opto-isolated (Current) Interface and consumes 10ma on the Power Station Interface.
