Details

The NCE Cab06 is an eagerly awaited addition to their range of hand held controllers to provide an economy controller with the benefit of a simple LED display. The features are: LED Display showing loco number and direction in normal operating mode. Speed control knob using a digital encoder with adjustable ballistic tracking. Yard mode. Up to 28 Functions. Control of up to 2048 accessories. CAB06 version 1.0 Please Note: The Cab06 will operate properly with all Power Cabs, SB3 and SB3a Systems. If you have a PH Pro, PH10 or PowerHouse system, you need to have software MAR 1 2007 or newer for proper operation. Some early MAR 1 2007 systems may display the wrong Loco Address above 4095. If you encounter this problem, please contact NCE for new software. See Page 2 for more information.Page 2 Before you do Anything Else . . . The Cab 06 comes to you with its Cab Address set to 3. If you are using it as the additional Cab for a Power Cab, you’re all set. You don’t need to do anything. However, if you are using one of our other systems and you already have a Cab that is set to Cab Address 3, then you will need to change its number. Setting the Cab Address: 1) Turn on the DCC system. 2) Unplug your Cab06 from the cab bus. 3) Plug the cab back in while holding down the SELECT button. 4) Release the SELECT key. 5) The cab will now enter its internal setup program indicated by “Adxx” on the LED display where xx is the current cab bus address. 6) If you DO NOT wish to change the address just press SHIFT/ESC to exit. 7) If you wish to change the address type in the new address number. Addresses 1-63 are valid for all systems except the Power Cab (3) or the SB3a (2-5). Press the ENTER key. Pressing the “SHIFT/ESC” at any time will cancel the operation. If you enter Cab Address 00, the Cab06 will reset to its factory settings. 8) When you see: “nor” or “Ard” press the Shift/Esc key to exit setup mode. Make sure you have the right software With the Power Cab, SB3 or SB3a you have the right software. However, if you have a PH Pro, PH10, CS02 or PowerHouse, you need to check which software you have: • Using your ProCab or Power Cab. • With the system on, press the Prog/Esc key 5 times (Set CMD Station). Press the Enter key once. On the bottom line will be a date. The one you’re looking for is MAR 1 2007B. If you have an earlier version, call 585-265-0231 to place a chip order. Last Revised 14 June, 2011 © 2011 NCECorporationPage 3 To the right is an illustration of the CAB06 Intermediate Cab. Following is a description of the various controls and indicators. LED DISPLAY This 4 digit display normally indicates the current locomotive address and its forward/reverse status (decimal points above the “F” and “R”). SPEED KNOB This knob controls the speed of the locomotive. It turns a digital encoder inside the plastic case. If the cab is set to “yard” mode the knob is “center off”, turning it to the left goes faster in reverse, turning it to the right goes faster in forward. DIRECTION KEY Pressing the DIRECTION key will cause the loco to change direction. This button is disabled when the cab is in “yard” mode. SELECT This selects the locomotive/consist to operate. Type in the loco/consist number, then press ENTER. HORN This button is factory set to operate Function 2 for the horn/whistle feature of DCC sound systems. Unlike other keys which toggle functions on and off this key is momentary, activating the function only as long as the button is held down. If you want Function 2 to toggle on and off use the “2” button. This button also turns on the cab if it is radio equipped. Cab06 Operations ManualPage 4 SHIFT/ESC All of the buttons of the CAB06 have several different uses. For example, the SELECT button acts as Select Loco but it may also be used as Select Accessory if SHIFT is pressed before pressing SELECT. The SHIFT button selects the “shift level” of the other cab buttons. Pressing SHIFT once puts the cab at Shift Level 1. The decimal point above the “1” on the LED display will light indicating Shift Level 1. If SHIFT is pressed a second time the “2” will light (“1” turns off) indicating Shift Level 2. If SHIFT is pressed a third time both the “1” and “2” go out indicating Shift Level 0. The CAB can be set up to have 0, 1, 2 or 3 shift levels (level 3 has both the “1” and “2” lit). When the cab is waiting for you to enter numbers the SHIFT button acts as the ESC (escape) key. NUMBER KEYS The keys 0 through 9 serve two purposes. First, when operating a locomotive if a number key is pressed it toggles the corresponding function on the loco (if that function is connected and supported by the decoder). The second purpose is for entering numeric data that is required for selecting a locomotive or other device. Use the 0 key for Headlight and the 1 key for Bell if you have a sound system. HEADLIGHT The “0” button (the headlight is Function 0) toggles the Headlight on and off. ENTER Used to confirm numeric input. SETTING UP YOUR CAB06 Just as every locomotive has a separate number (address in DCC terms) each cab needs a separate address so the command station can distinguish one cab from another. Each CAB06 is shipped from the factory with the address of 3. If this is not your first CAB06 you will have to change the address before using the cab. Entering Setup mode for the CAB06: 1) Turn on the DCC system. 2) Unplug your Cab06 from the cab bus.Page 5 3) Plug the cab back in while holding down the SELECT button. 4) Release the SELECT key. 5) The cab will now enter its internal setup program indicated by “Adxx” on the LED display where xx is the current cab bus address. Setting the cab address (also reset to factory settings): 1) If you DO NOT wish to change the address just press ENTER to move on to the Yard/Normal option. 2) If you wish to change the address type in the new address. • If you are using the Cab06 with a Power Cab, the Cab06 address must be 3. • If you are using the Cab06 with an SB3, SB3a, SB5 or SB10 the Cab06 address must be in the range of 2-5. • All other systems can use the Cab06 in the 1-63 range. 3) If you enter cab address 00 the cab will reset to its factory settings. This finishes setting the cab address. Set Yard/Normal mode: If the cab is set to Yard mode, the knob is “center off” and turning it to the left will increase the speed in reverse while turning it to the right will increase the speed in forward. 1) The LED will display “Ard” if the cab is in Yard mode or “nor” if it is in Normal mode. 2) If you DO NOT wish to change this press ENTER to move on to the Ballistic Tracking Rate option. 3) If you wish to change the operating mode press 0 for Normal mode or 1 for Yard mode. Pressing “SHIFT/ESC” at any time will cancel the operation.Page 6 Set Ballistic Tracking Rate: Ballistic tracking provides a means where the speed will ramp up/ down quickly if the knob is turned fast and it will ramp up/down slowly if the knob is turned slowly. This gives you very fine control by turning the knob slowly yet allows quickly changing speed if you want by turning it fast. The factory setting is 3. Lower numbers will lower the sensitivity and higher numbers will increase the sensitivity to how fast the knob is turned. The valid range is 0 to 7. If you enter a number outside this range it will not be accepted and the cab will continue to wait for a number in the range of 0 to 7. 1) The LED will display “baLx” where x is the current tracking rate. 2) If you DO NOT wish to change this press ENTER to move on to the Shift Level. 3) Any digit between 0-7 is valid . Pressing “SHIFT/ESC” will cancel the operation. Set the Maximum number of shift levels: 1) The LED will display “SH x” where x is the current maximum “shift” level. 2) If you DO NOT wish to change this press ENTER to move on to the display cab software version number. 3) Any digit between 0-3 is valid. Pressing “SHIFT/ESC” cancels the operation. Show Cab Version Number This is an identifier that will show you which version of the cab is yours.
