This article was last updated on May 14, 2012, 7:29 p.m. | Print Article | Leave Feedback

Some users prefer to “dispatch” or release all addresses active in their system before shutting down.

This can prevent unexpected results when you power up the layout again.

1. Turn track power off:

Press the PWR Key followed by the N - Key , the Track Power Indicator on the DT400 and the Track Status Indicator on your command station will go off.

2. Move the command station’s “MODE” switch to the “SLEEP” position.

3. Turn off the power supply to the system.

The power to the command station can be left on all the time if desired. In “sleep” mode, the command station consumes very little energy.

In this state the command station provides keep alive power to all throttles that are connected to LocoNet.
