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.
