This throttle can operate wirelessly using infrared light in simplex mode. For infrared operations, a compatible infrared receiver such as the UR90, UR91, or UR92 attached to the LocoNet throttle network is required. When operating wireless, the cord can be detached.

Among the many improvements over the UT4 throttle is how it's powered when operating wirelessly. Previous generates used a 9V battery non-rechargable battery, and the throttle had no power switch. This version is powered by AA batteries, or using Digitrax BP600MH battery back that is rechargeable. There is a power on/off switch, so no more flipping batteries around to save battery life.

The addition of the display screen additional features and better confirmation of status.

For duplex radio operations, see UT6D. Radio is required is for wireless outdoor operations because infrared will not work outdoors in the daytime.
