DCC Specialties PSX-AR
PSX-AR “Double Reverse Mode” CVs
This is a new product n the PSX-AR series. It was requested by users who have back-to-back reverse loops so that just about any set of two auto-reversers will flip-flop each other at the transition from one loop to the next. The reverse-loop transition is jerky or sporadic and the locomotive may stall. The PSX-AR solves this problem. It has a provision in the software where a slave unit PSX-AR is enabled by a CV change. The slave unit has a programmable reversing time delay so that the units reverse in sequence. This new feature is called Double Reverse Mode™.
The new code uses CV55=0 to operate as the primary reverser (same as existing products). This is the default.
Setting CV55=1 enables the unit as the secondary reverser. It will defer to the primary in reversing situations.
CV65 controls the timing between the primary and secondary. Its default is 8, which seems to be fine.
IMPORTANT: The user should not use other values for CV65 unless directed specifically by us or by DCC Specialties. Mis-setting CV65 could cause your breaker to self-destruct if the delay is too long. Please call us if you have a question or concern, before a problem arises. We can help you set CV65 to fine tune things.
