DT402 & DT400 Series Throttle - Locomotive Speed Control



To control the speed of a locomotive:

1. Select the loco address on either throttle

2. Turn the throttle knob clockwise to increase speed and counterclockwise to decrease speed

 or

3. Use the Y + & N- Keys to increase and decrease speed.

The % of full speed will be displayed in the text line of the display on the L or R side depending on which throttle is controlling the loco. The % of full speed will also be displayed on the bar graph above the text area in the display.

If a loco address is part of a consist and is not the “TOP” (or controlling locomotive) and you try to change its speed the LCD screen will show “cn” in the text area where % speed would normally appear. The “cn” lets you know that the loco you have selected is part of a consist and that you cannot change the speed or direction of this loco independently of the consist.
