Plug-In Throttles Add the Fun and Excitement of Walk-Around Throttles
XR-1300 Plug-In Throttle
The XR1300 plug-in throttle is our most economical throttle available.
Its rugged two-conductor phone-plug means it can handle many years of abuse without a complaint.
Controlling a locomotive is simple: plug in the throttle, key in the locomotive number and you're ready to roll.
The throttle plugs into the CVP fascia plate discribed below with a coiled cord that stretches to 20 feet.
When you are out of cord, simply unplug the throttle and move to another fascia plate.
The train will continue to run as you move between sockets.
The throttle does not require any batteries.
It is lightweight and comfortable even during long operating sessions.
Adding a plug-in throttle requires the installation of a throttle bus, also called a T-Bus.
A small circuit board, called an Extender, is connected to the Command Station with an included 7 foot modular cable.
Inexpensive TV coaxial cable connects the Extender to all of the Fascia Plates mounted on the front of the layout.
The throttle plugs into the fascia plate.
Each Extender can power up to 10 plug-in throttles.
Additional Extenders can be added to power more throttles or to drive additional runs of T-Bus cable to opposite ends of your layout.
