I am still trying to figure out this new Revo system and could use some help.
I have a aristo RS3 torn apart on my bench right now doing a remodel and repaint and I was thinking about adding in a Revo.
Without getting to technical on me...
I am using a Aristo TE with a Crest switching transformer that under the "G" setting puts out 23 volts 12 amps.
If I get the Revo and base station can I use this transformer?
Will the base station act like my TE in that I can run several trains at once on my RR but not with independent control unless I add a Revo receiver into each loco. Is that correct?
What if I setup one engine with a receiver but still want to run other engines without a receiver? What about at the same time?
Does the base unit put a constant voltage to the track and the onboard receiver picks up what it needs to run depending on what the transmitter tells it to?
I'm trying to wrap my head around this system but the websites that sell these all seem to have the same generic info.
1 Will the base station work with my Crest transformer?
2 Can I run several engines without receivers from the base unit knowing that the "emergency stop" shuts down everything on the track like it does with my TE?
3 Can I have one engine with a receiver installed and still run other engines without them?
