PROCEDURE #1: Note: If you have a DT400 or DT402 throttle plugged into your Zephyr or Zephyr Xtra DCC system, you do not need to use this procedure. Instead, use the procedure described in Procedure #2 below.
1. Put your locomotive on the main track (with the rails connected to RAIL A and RAIL B) and verify that you have control of it on DCC. All brand new locomotives out of the box are set to address 3. Control means that you can activate the horn, bell, lights, make it move, etc. If you don't have control or can't determine the address, reset the locomotive by programming CV 8 to 8. Then test run the locomotive on DCC using the main track and DCC address 3.
2. Turn Option Switch 7 "ON" to use Digitrax's Blast Mode programming feature:
--a. Press the PROG key on your Zephyr or Zephyr Xtra DCC system
--b. Press the SWITCH key
--c. Type 07, which is the number of the Option Switch that you need to turn on
--d. Press the c/- key to turn Option Switch 07 "On"
--e. Press the EXIT key when you are finished setting Option Switch 7
3. If you took the locomotive to be programmed off the main track, put it back on the main track. If DCC track power is off, turn it back on using the POWER key on the Zephyr or Zephyr Xtra. Make sure that the locomotive to be programmed still runs on DCC using address 3 (or whatever other address you have programmed it to).
4. Press the PROG key until you see PAGE on the Zephyr's or Zephyr Xtra's display.
5. Press the LOCO key until you see AD4 on the Zephyr's or Zephyr Xtra's display.
6. Type the 4-digit address that you wish to program, valid numbers are between 128 and 9983
7. Press the CV-WR key to write this number to the decoder. The locomotive may or may not jump forward when the programming is taking place.
8. Press the EXIT key on your Zephyr or Zephyr Xtra.
9. Now verify that the locomotive is now set to your desired address. Press the LOCO key, enter the address that you typed in step 6, and press the LOCO key again.
10. Test the lights, sound (if applicable), and locomotive movement. If all is good, skip to step 12 below.11. If the locomotive did not respond in Step 10 using the new address:
12. Turn off Blast Mode programming by changing the setting of Option Switch 07 to "OFF"
--a. Press the PROG key and then press the SWITCH key.
--b. Type 07, which is the number of the Option Switch that you need to turn off.
--c. Press the t/+ key to turn Option Switch 07 "Off."
--d. Press the EXIT key when you are finished resetting Option Switch 7.
First, operate the locomotive on the main line using its current DCC address, all brand new locomotives are factory programmed to address 3.
1. If you are not able to get the locomotive to operate, place the locomotive on your program track, and reset the LokSound Select decoder in your locomotive by setting CV 8 to 8. After the reset, place the locomotive back on the main line and make sure that the locomotive can be operated with the default DCC address 3.
2. Follow the procedure in your DCC system manual for programming a new address using Operations Mode programming on the main line. After you have programmed the 4-digit address, make sure that your DCC system has activated this address, for example it has set CV29 to 34, 38, or 46. In particular, if you have a Digitrax DCC system that has a DT400 or DT402 throttle, be certain to press the "Y+" key IMMEDIATELY after you see "Ad4on?=y" displayed on the throttle screen.
3. Change your DCC system from its configuration for Operations Mode programming to its configuration for running a locomotive on the main line (if your DCC system doesn’t perform this reconfiguration automatically). For most systems this is done by pressing the ESC or Exit key.
4. Verify that the locomotive can operate on the main line using its new 4-digit address.
"4-Digit Address", "Long Address", "Extended Address" all mean any address between 128-9999 (128-9983 for Digitrax systems).
"2-Digit Address", "Short Address", "Primary Address" all mean any address between 1-127.
