Locomotive Command Control Cruise Upgrade
The patented (#7,132,807) Cruise Commander with SMS* Technologytm is a breakthrough cruise control technology, unprecedented in 3-rail "O" Gauge. With the Cruise Commander you get ultra-slow, constant speed, operation of your locos without complicated installations.
While in operation, velocity information is monitored from the motor directly. If dual-motored, each motor is balanced to the other, synchronizing the motors for smooth operation. By using high current HEXFET drivers and operating at 20khz PWM on the motors, silent motor operation is attained. Additionally, lash-ups are possible when the locos are matched using the exclusive "nudge" feature.
