Board Kit only (no speaker, reed switches, battery, magnets)
Includes PB11 board, volume switch, programming jack, manual)
BigSoundTM PB11 Features:
16-bit Sound Reproduction
A 16-bit combintation microprocesssor and digital signal processor is used to produce museum-quality sound that cannot be matched by an 8-bit solution
3 Watts Power
Strong 3 Watt amplifier produces more than sufficient volume for out-of-doors use, capable of handling loads down to 4 ohms.
3-Volt Low-speed Operation
Most sound units do a poor job at low power settings - meaning at low run speeds. Not so with the PB11, it is fully operational at power settings as low as 3 Volts. There is usually some voltage loss from the track through the wheels and contacts to the board, so the track voltage may have to be 5 or 6 volts for continuous operation in order to keep the battery fully charged.
5 triggers for external control
5 different inputs provide flexibility for attaching external controls such as reed switches or remote control trigger outputs.
Twice the memory of the 2K2
The memory size of the PB11 means we have added and will be adding still more sounds, effects and features. Just as you asked for. Look for new and improved sounds as well.
Advanced Circuit Protection
Not likely that you'll blow up a board from making a minor installation error.
BigBoostTM is on the board
No need to purchase a separate, slow-speed booster, it is on the board at no extra price.
The board is 2.54 " x 0.87" x 0.50" -- smaller than the BigSoundTM 2K2 board and the same footprint as the BigSoundTM PB9.
NiMH Battery (sold separately)
The PB11 uses a 3.6V 2/3AAA NiMH battery pack - 53% the size of the 3.6V 2/3AA Ni-Cad 2K2 battery.
Built-in Battery Charger
No need to purchase an external battery charger. The battery is charged automatically by the PB11.
DCC Sound Decoder Built-In
It isn't necessary to purchase a separate DCC function decoder to control sounds like the whistle and bell on a PB11 - a DCC sound decoder is built-in. NMRA Compliant.
