Power Cab as Throttle

A Power Cab Throttle can be used with another Power Cab. The second Power Cab must be connected using the cable meant for throttle only usage. The primary Power Cab functions as the command station and booster.

The same throttle only cable is used when using a Power Cab with a Power House / Pro Cab system.

In this situation the Power Cab will function as a Pro Cab.

Read the manuals, as there may be a cab address conflict. The Power Cab will not use its default address (2) in this mode, it will use another address (Ranging from 3 – 5) which may conflict with an existing Cab Bus device.

The NCE USB uses address "3".
