DCCconcepts Cobalt Alpha is a digital encoder that turns any form of standard switch into a digital control device, making it possible to create complex control panels with simple wiring in fact you will need only one pair of wires between your panel and the layout. DCCconcepts Cobalt Alpha is equally usable by all modellers in all of the common scales, whether you drive the trains with AC, DC or DCC power. Cobalt Alpha is directly connectable to the command bus of all NCE DCC systems with a standard RJ12 cable.
Add the Cobalt “Alpha box” and AC and DC modellers can immediately take advantage of Cobalt Alpha to reduce their control panel complexity. (DCC brands with sniffer ports can use the Alpha box too if they wish). Multiple Alpha units can be connected in series or in parallel. Cobalt Alpha allows up to 2044 accessory numbers to be used, and can even set them all at once if you wish.
