with controller addressing circuit

Stand-Alone EDITS Pro
Not every user of the EEDTS Pro system needs to control his model trains using a PC. This article describes how the system can be used stand-alone and what is required. We also present a deluxe address programming circuit for your manual controllers.Even shortly after the introduction of EEDTS Pro, it was evident that some users needed to be able to control the system without using a PC. One of the most frequently asked questions was whether the earlier EEDTS keypad could also be adapted to be used with the system and whether a keypad control would be coming. Another question that arose with regard to stand-alone operation of the controller was whether the ‘fixed’ addresses of the manual controllers could be changed without having to use a PC.
