    Description

    The UWT-50 Universal WiFi Throttle from TCS is the new standard in utility WiFi control for model railroads. This throttle brings a new level of ergonomic comfort and operational convenience to a smaller, more affordable package than the UWT-100. Instead of spending time with your head in a manual trying to understand your throttle, the intuitive interface of the UWT-50 allows you to focus on the important things - operating and enjoying your trains!

    Engineered to work with most current DCC systems, and increase adoption and use of LCC, this throttle relies on the robust and universal standard of WiFi communication and leaves outdated control systems behind. The UWT-50 can be conveniently updated from the comfort of your own home, meaning you'll always have access to the newest features and your handheld won't quickly pass out of date. We are confident that the UWT-50 will quickly become your favorite throttle to use!

    Analogue Potentiometer (UWT-50P)
    Potentiometer knob control offers a "traditional" feel with a fixed starting and ending point. Intelligent software control ensures that you never experience "runaways" when changing locos.

    Package includes two inter-change-able knob wheels for "Right-handed" and "Left-handed" throttle operation.

    Large, Full-text Screen
    1.42" x 0.92" LCD screen with white backlight. Brightness is entirely adjustable for a variety of operating conditions.

    Programmable Buttons
    Two buttons on the face of the throttle, as well as two multi-position switches on the side (8 total) can be reassigned to control many functions. Examples include dynamic braking, manual notching, and more! Higher-numbered functions are now a simple button press or switch flick away!

    Battery Power
    The UWT-50 is powered by two double a (AA) batteries, and support multiple chemistries including recharge-able, such as Alkaline, NiMH, LiPo, NiCd, and more! An easily-accessible battery compartment allows for quick, on-the-fly replacements so you're never stuck in a sticky situation waiting for your throttle to charge! (The yard master won't be happy to hear about that!) The UWT-50 lets you focus on what matters - running trains!

    Multiple Connection Modes
    You can connect to any DCC system using the WiThrottle protocol or a system-specific WiFi device, or communicate directly with your LCC network in LCC mode.

    In-Throttle Consisting
    Consisting doesn’t have to be difficult, intimidating, or complicated. The UWT-50 features a simple consisting interface where users can make, modify, and break up consists in mere seconds.

    Yard Mode
    Yard Mode is an innovative, TCS exclusive feature designed for switching operations and control. Perfect for spicing up repetitive yard moves!

    Full-Text Menus
    Menus present all options in full words and phrases. No guess work or manuals needed!

    Help Text
    Use the [?] button on the keypad in any menu to access help text for that menu item. The throttle will call up a relevant part of the manual or simple description of the selected operation. Help is always one button press away!

    Easily Update-able
    Update throttle software and add new features to your handheld from the comfort of your own home.

    Flashlight
    The UWT-50 unit comes equipped with two bright white LED's that can be activated at any time - handy for finding those dropped screws and lost detail parts, decoupling during nighttime operations, and ventures under dark, cavernous benchwork!
