Command Station

That portion of the DCC system that takes input from the control device (throttle or cab) and converts it to NMRA standard data packets ready to be sent to the track. May be a separate box, or a function built into another box, such as a booster / command station (system box) or a throttle (as the NCE PowerCab).
