Make sure you have a charged battery installed in your DT402D.  The DT402D is attempting to power on the RF24 radio in the throttle and register with the UR92.  Without a battery it cannot draw enough power from LocoNet to complete this procedure.

By first throttle will display “StealZap” meaning it has ...

KB1039 How do I practically use the 400 slots available in the DCS240? How do my throttles access the slots?

The DCS240 offers 400 locomotive slots and can support up to 400 throttles.  These slots can be broken down in to standard slots and expanded slots.  There are 120 standard slots in the DCS240, these slots are accessible using any Digitrax throttle.  There are an additional 280 expanded slots available to DT402 R2 (tethered and Duplex) and later throttles.  The DCS240 identifies the throttle type being used and assigns and adjusts the slots accordingly.  Expanded capability throttles are given the Expanded slots first, leaving the standard slots available for legacy throttles.  All this is done in the background and will ...
