This article was last updated on April 8, 2014, 3:21 p.m. | Print Article | Leave Feedback

What are the different operational modes available in the PR3?

The PR3 is the combination of two previous Digitrax devices: the PR2 decoder programmer and the MS100 LocoNet to computer interface.

The PR3 can be configured through manual (control panel buttons) or automatically (software) means to perform any one of the following three operations:

a) The PR3 can be configured to function as a stand alone decoder programmer.

In this mode the PR3 can program the configuration variables of most DCC decoders and the sound effects of the Digitrax Sound FX sound decoders.


b) The PR3 can be configured to function as a computer to Digitrax command station controlled LocoNet interface.

In this mode the PR3 becomes the interface between a Digitrax command station controlled LocoNet and a computer USB communication port.


c) The PR3 can be configured to function as a stand alone computer to LocoNet interface.

In this mode the PR3 becomes the interface and termination device between a LocoNet without a connection to a Digitrax command station and a computer USB communication Port. For example, this mode allows you to use Digitrax signalling on a layout controlled by another manufacturer's DCC system.
