WiFiTrax WFD-30 Cab Bus WiFi Interface WiThrottle Server Power Cab & Pro. Here is the new WFD-31 fascia version.You can install this Wi-Fi/DCC NCE CAB Bus Interface on your layout to provide Wi-Fi Control of trains using your NCE DCC Equipment. Control Trains using popular apps such as WiThrottle on Apple, Engine Driver on Android or, if you don't like phones, the popular TCS UWT-100 Universal Wi-Fi Throttle. This NCE CAB Bus-Compatible product will work with any NCE Command Station such as Power Pro, Smart Booster and Power Cab. The unit acts as a WiThrottle server using Hoffman's WiThrottle protocol, just like JMRI, with optional loco roster and turnout list. If you want a more tactile driving experience, use the popular TCS UWT-100 Universal Wi-Fi Throttle. Of course you can also operate locomotives using WifiTrax Loco Operator version 3.5 on Windows or Android.
It translates all the WiThrottle commands to NCE Cab Bus commands. You can provide meaningful names for the function keys for each loco in your roster and set them to latch or not as required.
You can set WPA2-PSK Security on the device's direct Wi-Fi Access Point with your own password. You can connect more than one WFD-30 to an NCE command station so you can take your unit along to your club with your own roster - only those your authorize can access it and drive your locos.
It supports 4 connected throttles out of the box, BUT you can connect it to your home network so that the number of throttles is increased to 8. Last but certainly not least, you get a complete and detailed on-line manual on all aspects of operation, with clear instructions on using third-party apps with the WFD-30.Select the broadcast WiThrottle server, and drive trains by selecting a locomotive using its DCC address. But there's a great deal more. You can create a locomotive roster similar to JMRI, specify a name and DCC address for each entry, and customize the function keys for the decoder in each loco. Maybe you have diesel locos, where F2 should show "Horn" and steam locos where F2 should show "Whistle".
Similarly, some locos might have various lights that others do not. You can define a list of DCC accessory turnouts that will be loaded into WiThrottle or Engine Driver when you connect. With direct connection to the WFD-30 module, you can have up to 4 hand-held throttles, BUT you can connect the module to your home network which allows up to 8 throttles connected at any one time.So when there are many operators, you can have up to eight throttles without needing to install multiple WFD-30 modules and remember which one you should connect to. Also all your hand-helds are connected to your home net, so you can access the internet and use other apps at the same time as driving your trains and you don't have to connect to the unit's Wi-Fi each time. Configuration: Power Cab is acting as the command station, plugged into the left hand socket of the Power Cab panel using the flat NCE cable, and the WFD-30 is plugged into the right hand socket of the Power Cab Panel using the coiled cable. WFD-30 is set to Cab address 3 all DIP Switches set to off (zero). Symptoms: Using Engine Driver, WiThrottle or TCS UWT-100, you can connect to the WFD-30, select a loco and operate functions and speed. When you do this the LEDs on the WFD-30 flash but the loco does not move and none of its functions operate such as lights and sound. The loco can be driven from the Power Cab itself OK.
Solution: The problem occurs because the Power Cab has version 1.65 (or earlier) firmware. Note the B version or newer is required. Power Cab version 1.65 (without the B) had some big problems. The same version upgrade would also, we think, be needed in the SB3/5 Smart Booster, i.
