PR4 Interface

The Digitrax PR4 is a USB to LocoNet Interface with Decoder Programmer. This can be used to establish a connection between your Digitrax system LocoNet and a computer running JMRI.

From Digitrax: "The PR4 makes decoder programming and interfacing your layout and computer easier than ever. The PR4 seamlessly switches between computer interface and decoder programming modes automatically without having to press any buttons. The PR4 is electrically isolated between USB and LocoNet for added stability and protection. Packaged in a smaller footprint the PR4 offers all the same great features as the PR3 it replaces."

PR3/PR3XTRA Interface

The Digitrax PR4 is a USB to LocoNet Interface with Decoder Programmer. Though the PR3 and PR3XTRA devices have been replaced by the PR4 interface from Digitrax, they can still be used to establish a connection between your Digitrax system LocoNet and a computer running JMRI, and are compatible with the UWT-100 for WiFi control.

From Digitrax: "The PR3 lets SoundFX users download new Project sound files and even reflash the sound decoder's firmware for latest updates. It also acts as a computer interface and LocoNet Translator for your PC. The PR3 is the most economical computer Interface we offer, it has all the functionality of a PR2 and a MS100 combined in one. Finally it functions on the more modern USB 2.0 interface making it easier to connect and more friendly to newer PCs."
