DCS Commander Controller
Product Details

MTH’s Digital Command System (DCS) unlocks the full sound and operating potential of Proto-Sound 2.0* or later equipped locomotives. Insert a DCS Commander in the wires from your existing DCC system to the track and you can switch back and forth between DCC** and DCS with the push of a button. Or use the Commander alone with your own DC power supply.
Because many M.T.H. Proto-Sound 2.0** locomotives can operate on both AC or DC current, the DCS Commander may be the affordable DCS command control option you've been looking for. The DCS commander outputs up to 18 volts of DC power and includes a built-in 5amp resettable breaker making it a perfect solution for small M.T.H. O Gauge layouts exclusively running Proto-Sound 2.0** locomotives.

For HO operators, the DCS Commander Controller Set is a perfect power solution for almost any size HO layout. HO operators whose layouts are already outfitted with a DC power supply can choose the individual DCS Commander and plug their existing power supply right into the Commander's power inputs.

The DCS Commander offers intuitive control of multiple Proto-Sound engines; for each locomotive, more than 32 functions are available at the touch of a single, clearly-labeled button. In addition to the features available with DCC and analog DC, the DCS Commander unlocks a long list of Proto-Sound operating possibilities.
