KB325: DCS100 - Track Status Indicator

This article was last updated on Jan. 18, 2012, 2:23 p.m. | Print Article | Leave Feedback

The TRACK STATUS indicator shows that there is voltage on RAIL A & RAIL B terminals.

The color indicates the type of signal:
 

  • If it is orange the track is getting DCC signals with no analog zero stretching.
     
  • If the color is green or red then a stretched zero signal is being used to operate a conventional locomotive.

    When zero stretching is present, the DCC decoder equipped locomotives will read their digital commands normally and perform as commanded.
  • If the Track Status LED is not lit there is no voltage on the track, the track power to the DCS100 may be OFF.
