TCS has been on quite the adventure over the last 20 years. Decoders have always been our specialty, especially HO-scale WOWSound, but we don't want to "get comfortable" and stay on the path we've always traveled. As we've continued to innovate in this space and make improvements to our high-quality decoders, an increasing number of customers have expressed their concern and frustration about the lack of new technology from DCC systems and throttle producers. We've even endured the occasional earful about "how I would do things differently if I could make the decisions."  After years of research and development, of creative collaboration, of identifying the good and replacing the bad - we're proud to announce that we've finally developed our own handheld throttle device that is quite unlike any other before it. 

Every detail of this handheld has been rigorously researched and thoroughly tested. Soft, smooth buttons are laid out in an intuitive way to promote heads-up, eyes-free locomotive operation. Buttons also operate silently and showcase easily-recognizable printed symbols. 8 of the buttons are programmable and be assigned any function. The large, brightly backlit, and transflective LCD screen displays menu options in "plain English" and at a large font size for easy reading.
