Digitrax is a well established company with a very wide range of products covering every aspect of DCC.
Digitrax has long been popular with Model Railroad Clubs. Partly this is because of the modular nature of their systems and their particular line of small walk-around throttles.
- LocoNet is sometimes called the "The Digitrax Difference." LocoNet is another reason for popularity with clubs.
- Interrupt driven throttles are one of Digitrax’ major competitive advantages. Part of the unique interrupt driven throttle network, called LocoNet. In addition to allowing ease of signaling and communication amongst all DCC entities on the net, LocoNet has a huge “fan club.” Many “third party” folks manufacture software and hardware for this inventive network. Digitrax takes the time to review these items and gives their “LocoNet Certification” to items they deem to meet the LocoNet specifications.
- Sound Decoders - Digitrax has introduced a new line of SoundFX decoders that bring a new dimension or realism to operations. The latest one amp mobile decoder in the FX line is based on proven decoder technology and adds downloadable sounds that will "blow your socks off". While the units are ready-to-run with preloaded sounds, they can also be customized from your own recordings. These SoundFX units are available for steam, diesel, ore electric locomotives.

In the June of 2020, Digitrax announced a new throttle series, the DT602.
It is available in a wired version (DT602) and a duplex radio version (DT602D). The DT602D requires at UR92 or UR93 (announced a few weeks later) radio base unit to utilize its radio features.
Early production units had an issue with the battery holder, where a terminal can twist and short out to the circuit board, resulting in SMOKE! Contact Digitrax for repair if you have one of these units.
Early customers are finding it hard to see battery polarity. I recommend a red dot on the bottom of the battery case where the positive terminals connect.
