The final face plates, with lettering engraved, arrived Friday and all the assembled ProtoThrottle circuit boards came in last week. Nathan and I also spent a fun weekend building all the receiver boards we need (and more). With that, everything is in place to begin final assembly of the throttles, testing, packaging, and yes, eventually, shipping!
A progression of face plates… Bare aluminum after milling (left). Anodized (middle). Engraved (right).
Receiver boards after assembly… Lenz / Cab Bus on the left, XBee boards for the ESU/JMRI/Digitrax receiver on the right.
