If a Jack Wabbit is going to be used with snap coils, a capacitor has been added to the board to provide extra energy to operate the coils. In this version, the Jack Wabbit will operate snap coil OR stall motor machine on an output by output basis. You set a CV for the snap coil outputs so the Jack Wabbit knows which is a snap or stall motor. This version is designed for machines like the NJI snap coils which take a lot of energy to operate and this configuration can only be used with snap coil switches.
If you are not using LocoNet, then order the version without LocoNet. All versions have discrete outputs which define the position of each switch output. These are designed for use with the NCE AIU. The AIU allows you to interface discrete inputs to the NCE cab bus. Unlike Digitrax, the NCE sytem does not have the ability to display switch position on the throttle other than to report the last movement. There are no throttle messages that allow the reporting of discretes on the throttle. Digitrax has specific LocoNet messages that report switch position on the throttle.
