Bristling with advanced control features, this unit delivers maximum railroading realism. For example, one of its key features is momentum control, sometimes referred to as flywheel action.
INPUT:120 VAC 60 Hz
OUTPUT: 23 VDC, 18.5 VAC
TOTAL OUTPUT: 20 VA
Here's how momentum works in Tech 7: When a real locomotive is given a throttle increase there is a lag time until the preselected speed is reached. Likewise, when braking a life-size, fast moving train it usually takes a mile or so before it stops. But because lightweight model trains won't mimic this delay on their own, we create the momentum or inertia electronically. When you increase throttle position on a momentum equipped train control, or operate the brake, a delay circuit slows the rate of track voltage change. This train control is equipped with a switch to bypass the delay circuitry for yard work or switching which require quick throttle reaction.
