HO ALL Pro
is an HO Scale electronic controller featuring all the
basics of the Pro Series controllers. It is intended for
use with All HO cars. It features:
- 3 Range Adjustable Sensitivity. A 3 position
switch offers three different ranges to maximize the
Sensitivity adjustment. The Middle switch position is
intended for most HO cars. It provides a range that is
good for some Tjets through most SS magnet cars. The
Low (s) setting can be used to lower the Sensitivity
range down for Tjets, DASH, Johnny Lightning, Auto World
and some AFX/MT cars. When running hot magnet cars and
12V gravity cars the High (S) setting can be used.
- Adjustable Brakes. A 100 ohm brake pot
provides the best braking range for HO racing.
- Adjustable Coast. Coast is now set slower than
the previous version. This new range provides better
slow speed control where only a small amount of power is
applied to the car. This amount of power start way
below what is required to start a car moving or even
keep it moving but it works well in providing just
enough extra roll to counteracts strong magnetic
downforce on magnet cars. Since the Coast design is
not resistor-based it does not use the Coast pot to
dissipate heat. All heat is contained inside the
controller where it is safe to handle. All 3 Pots on
the ALL Pro will remain cool at all times (Assuming
proper track connection). Note: The previous version
was designed with Auto-Pilot racers in mind. This is
where the Coast power is used to navigate the turns and
the racer pulls the trigger on the straights. This is
harder on the controller and usually not the preferred
way to race. Since very few race this way anymore we
decided to change the range. If the old range is
desired we can easily construct one with the old range.
This unique design allows the Coast and Sensitivity to
be independent of each other. Set the Coast and then
set the Sensitivity WITHOUT having to go back and
readjust the Coast.
The RED Brake wire does not
have to be connected for Coast to function.
- Adjustable Choke to flatten out the response of
the controller. This allows the entire range of the
trigger to be used in controlling the car vice just a
small portion. The Choke is fully bypassed at the full
trigger pull. The RED Brake
wire does not have to be connected for Choke to
HO ALL Pro Controls
Sensitivity Selector Switch -
With the switch in the (s) position the Sensitivity
knobs adjusts the lowest Sensitivity Range. With the
switch in the (S) position the highest Sensitivity Range
is selected. With the switch in the middle the middle
and most useful range is selected.
Brake/-/Coast Selector Switch - With the Switch
in the "B" position Brakes are selected. In the "C"
position Coast is selected. With the Switch in the
middle position neither Brakes nor Coast is selected.
Sensitivity Knob - Fully CCW is the lowest
sensitivity for the slowest starting speed within the
selected Sensitivity Range. Fully CW is the highest
sensitivity for the highest starting speed within the
selected Sensitivity Range.
Choke Knob - Fully CCW provides the most choke,
the flattest response. Fully CW provides the lowest
choke or normal linear response.
Brake/Coast Knob - With the B/-/C switch in the B
position, Fully CCW yields Maximum brakes, 0 ohms, while
fully CW yields Minimum brakes, 100 ohms. Minimum
Brakes still provides some braking. To remove all
braking from the controller the RED
Brake wire needs to be removed. With the switch in the
C position, Fully CCW yields the Minimum Coast. Fully
CW yields the Maximum Coast. With the switch in the
middle position the knob has no effect.
