Cab05



MODELS COVERED (in picture order): CAB05 / CAB05R

PART NUMBERS:
CAB05:    BUTTON CAB
CAB05R:  BUTTON CAB with radio (and toggle switch)


CAB HISTORY/DESCRIPTION:
CAB05 has evolved over time.  Radio was added along with a toggle switch in later models that allowed the Cab05 to control two trains with a flick of the switch.

Radio was supported and when it was installed, added a R suffix after the CAB05 name.

The Status LED gives you status information about the state of the keyboard and button press action.

1) When the LED was off, the keypad was being used as a function control keypad.  Each key number was a function number.
2) When the LED was on, the keypad was setup for data entry of something like a engine number or a macro number.
3) The LED would always blink when a button was pressed.  It did not matter if the LED was ON or OFF.   This gave you physical verification that your button was pressed.

PRODUCTION STATUS:

All in current production.
