NCE was a subcontractor to Wangrow Electronics, providing the software for their command stations and throttles.
The Powerhouse Pro was intended to be Wangrow's next DCC system, replacing the System One, but Wangrow declined. NCE decided to become a full DCC manufacturer and offered the system under their own name.
Early units shipped with a System One manual until an Powerhouse Pro specific edition was available. Later the name would be simplified to Power Pro.
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 CS02 command station/booster.
The system was orignally 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.
- 5 and 10A Command Station/Boosters
- Tethered or Wireless Throttles
- Expansion via Cab Bus
As this was intended to replace the System One, it has an RS-232 serial port for communication with a computer.
The system is supplied with one Universal Throttle Panel. Adding additinal UTP panels allows walkaround operation.
The CS02 command station supports up to 63 throttles (cabs).
The set can be purchased with optional radio capability, or this feature can be added later.
Additional Cab Bus accessories can add features. As the Cab Bus supports a maximum of 63 cabs, each additional device reduces the number of cabs supported.
A Control Bus allows connection of additional boosters.
The CS02 offers a programming track output for multifunction decoders. Older models (pre 2007) may require a programming track booster.
