Select either a Potentiometer knob for a fixed starting and ending point, or the Encoder knob if you prefer infinite scrolling.
Large, Full-text Screen
1.42" x 0.92" LCD screen with blue-ish-white backlight. Brightness is entirely adjustable for a variety of operating conditions. The UWT-50 screen has an identical resolution compared to the UWT-100.
Two buttons on the face of the throttle, as well as two multi-position switches on the side can be reassigned to control many functions. Examples such as dynamic braking, manual notching, and higher-numbered functions are now a simple button press or switch flick away!
Battery Power That Won't Leave You High-and-dry
The UWT-50 is powered by two double a (AA) batteries, and support multiple chemistries including recharge-able, such as Alkaline, NiMH, LiPo, NiCd, and more! An easily-accessible battery compartment allows for quick, on-the-fly replacements so you're never stuck in a sticky situation waiting for your throttle to charge! (The yard master won't be happy to hear about that!) The UWT-50 lets you focus on what matters - running trains!
Multiple Connection Modes
You can connect to any DCC system using the WiThrottle protocol or a system-specific WiFi device, or communicate directly with your LCC network in LCC mode.
Consisting doesn’t have to be difficult, intimidating, or complicated. The UWT-50 features a simple consisting interface where users can make, modify, and break up consists in mere seconds.
Yard Mode is an innovative, TCS exclusive feature designed for switching operations and control. Perfect for spicing up repetitive yard moves!
Menus present all options in full words and phrases. No guess work or manuals needed!
Use the [?] button on the keypad in any menu to access help text for that menu item. The throttle will call up a relevant part of the manual or simple description of the selected operation. Help is always one button press away!
Update throttle software and add new features to your handheld from the comfort of your own home.
The UWT-50 unit comes equipped with two bright white LED's that can be activated at any time - handy for finding those dropped screws and lost detail parts, decoupling during nighttime operations, and ventures under dark, cavernous benchwork!
