A 16-bit combination microprocessor 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.

Easy Hook-up: Just connect red wire to + (+24) and black wire to the plus minus (-) (Gnd) terminals on your decoder.
Easy Placement: The control circuit and capacitor are separated to allow flexible placement where other power buffers just don't fit. This photo shows a typical loco with no room to fit an LGB power buffer but the Shourt Line SL-APB-3300 fits easily. Notice the control circuit is in the center of the photo to the right of the Massoth XLS sound decoder and the power buffers capacitor fits nicely in the area to the right.
