KB771 DT402 & DT400 Series Throttles L (Left) & R (Right) Throttle Knobs

Digitgrax refers to the throttle knob on the left side as the L Throttle and the throttle knob on the right side as the R Throttle. This corresponds to the L & R that appears on the throttle. The throttle knobs on the DT400 use “encoders.” They give very smooth, fine speed control. In 128 speed step mode it takes four complete rotations of the knob to go from stop to full speed. When you select a locomotive that is already moving on either throttle knob, that throttle will continue to run the locomotive at the same speed and in the ...

With ballistic tracking, the faster you increase or decrease turning the throttle knob, the faster the data changes in the throttle. When ballistic tracking is enabled, so are typematic keys. With typematic keys, when you press and hold the Y +or N - Keys, the values will continue to increase or decrease without having to do a separate key press for each increment.With straight line tracking each movement of the throttle knob causes a fixed rate of change.

KB510 DT400 Series - Throttle Clicks

Q: I have a Digitrax DT400 throttle. The left speed knob accelerates the locos at one speed unit per "click". However the right knob accelerates at three speed units per "click". How can I change the right knob to one unit per click? Each rotation of a throttle knob on the DT400 series throttle generates 24 clicks.  Digitrax supports 14, 28 and 128 speed step operation in decoders; each click on a DT400 series throttle knob is related proportianally to the number of speed steps used by the decoder. So, for a 128 speed step decoder each click is approxiamtely 5.33 speed steps.Perceived throttle ...
