Battery Powered Wireless DCC Control System For All Scales
In its simplest form, an AirWire900 system consists of a handheld controller, called a throttle, a locomotive mounted receiver/decoder and a modern, high-capacity Lithium battery to power the locomotive.
Safety First - Zero Voltage On The Rails
With an AirWire900 system, there is absolutely no electricity present on the rails.
The locomotive running power is tucked away safely inside the locomotive in the form of a high-capacity lithium battery.
This type of battery provides several hours of uninterrupted operation and features small size, light weight and high energy density.
Battery powered locomotives means never having to worry about electrical hazards and municipal electrical safety codes.
There is no fear of shock or other electrical hazards - an important consideration when children use or are around the railroad.
The AirWire900 throttles are simple to learn and easy to use.
Locomotive selection is quick - just key in the locomotive's cab number.
Speed control is with a standard and familiar knob.
Direction control is simple - push down on the speed knob.
When equipped with an AirWire locomotive decoder, many special effects are available at your finger tips.
A selection of special lighting effects is built into every locomotive decoder.
Smoke generators can be used to their fullest capacity since they can be turned on and off from the throttle.
If you forget to turn off the smoke generator, the decoder automatically shuts it off for you.
Switch to safe and reliable battery power.
Newer battery technologies provide reliable and long running time for long heavy trains and hilly layouts.
Freedom From Wiring Nightmares
Battery power means there is no complicated track wiring because all wiring is eliminated.
Gone are the wiring nightmares of reverse loops, wyes, junctions, blocks and storage yards.
There is no need to purchase expensive rail-clamps or spend hours digging trenches, running wires and soldering wires to rail - and that's assuming your track-plan never changes.
You'll save hundreds of hours of back-breaking labor not to mention hundreds of dollars.
Eliminate Tedious Track And Wheel Cleaning
Your trains will run smoothly and reliably without hesitation or jerky performance.
AirWire900 eliminates the need to clean the track and the locomotive wheels.
No power on the rails forever eliminating the nasty chore of cleaning tracks and wheels.

Effortless Changes To Track Plans
Changing your track plan is simple - just put down track and begin running.
No need to relocate track wiring.
Just connect the track, turn on the locomotive and motor away.
Feel free to change your mind at any time and without any hassle.
Multiple independently controlled trains are easy and fun.
Watching one train go around and around becomes boring after a short time.
AirWire900 allows multiple trains to share the same track without a complicated track powering scheme.
Each train can be under independent control and multiple operators can use the same track.
Expand Your Enjoyment
Add a couple of passing sidings to allow two trains to meet and pass each other.
Add some industrial areas with their own sidings and enjoy the fun task of delivering and picking up boxcars.
Add a passenger train or two and soon you'll have your own miniature transportation empire that is as much fun to watch as it is to operate.

Easy Installation Is Assured With The Drop-In Decoder
Installing an AirWire decoder into a locomotive is now much, much easier.
The Drop-In decoder uses all of the locomotive's existing wiring and lighting.
No extra wiring is necessary - just plug in the connectors to the matching sockets on the Drop-In decoder.
The full color, illustrated installation guides you from unpacking the locomotive, through finding the many and sometimes hidden mounting screws, to plugging in the matching connectors and mounting the battery.
Tips and hints from the pros ensures first time success.
Fine Tune Locomotive Performance
Built into the throttle is everything needed to fine tune your locomotive performance.
Everything from startup voltage to top speed can be set right from the throttle.
Since all of the setup information is stored inside the locomotive, any throttle will automatically obtain the exact same locomotive performance.
Slim, Comfortable One Handed Control
The sleek balanced case and intuitive front panel layout makes throttle operation comfortable and convenient for either right or left handed operators.

Use Any Brand Of DCC Sound Decoder
The G3 decoder is the generic workhorse decoder suitable for all locomotive types and brands, diesel or steam.
Since the G3 has a full 3 Amp DCC output, any DCC compatible decoder can be controlled directly from the throttle.
For really easy sound installation, the Phoenix P8 plugs right into the matching socket found on all Drop-In decoders.
Turnout Control Is Built In
Adding turnout control or other types of accessories is simple and straight forward.
The Linker scans all throttle frequencies listening for activation command.
Upon receipt, it formats the command sends it to the Activator.
The Activator controls up to 4 separate turnouts or other accessories.
Only two wires, shared by all Activators, connect them back to the Linker.
And just like locomotives, your accessories can be powered by safe batteries too.
