The complete DCC starter package for the railway modeller. PRODIGY ADVANCE2 contains the three essential components you need to control your model railway layout.
- POWER PACK transforms the power from your mains socket ready for the Base Unit.
- BASE UNIT - the brains behind the operation containing all the technology you need to send DCC commands to your locomotives and accessories.
- WALKAROUND CONTROLLER - a convenient, hand held controller that plugs straight into the Base Unit, putting the control of every locomotive and accessory at your fingertips.
The WALKAROUND is an ergonomically designed hand-held controller that is used to send your control commands to the Base Unit, which in turn sends them on to the relevant decoders on your layout; either installed in your locomotives, or connected to your accessories such as signals & points. The speed and direction of your locomotives is controlled from here.
Why choose Prodigy Advance DCC?
One of the key benefits of DCC operation is that each of your locomotives has a numeric address which you select as and when you want to run that particular locomotive. This allows you to run it anywhere on your layout, even on the same stretch of track, at the same time as other trains are moving, something that is virtually impossible to achieve on a traditional analogue layout. You can operate points (individually or an entire group or route set) and signals from the Walkaround controller too. Programming decoders is also quick and easy with the Prodigy system, enabling you to programme your decoders to replicate the running characteristics of your locomotives, or even introduce a speed clock that allows you to run a realistic, 24 hour timetable within one operating session.
There are almost limitless possibilities with DCC control and with locomotives becoming available with factory-fitted decoders as standard, it's never been easier to get started with DCC. Plus with the range of retro-fit DCC Decoders such as the DCC26, you can also retro-fit your older locomotives with decoders too.
The Prodigy Advance 2 Walkaround handset in this pack is fitted with a clear and bright blue backlit display, ideal for users operating a railway in less than ideal lighting conditions, such as sheds, lofts & basements.
