Next is the Digitrax UP6Z, a 3 Amp Z Scale Voltage Reducer and Universal Panel.  The UP6Z is designed to be used with your Digitrax Command Stations and Boosters to lower the output voltage to a level that will not damage Z scale motors and shells. The UP6Z is simply hooked up in line with the outputs from your Command Station or Booster and can be used to drop the voltage to the track by either 4 volts or 6 volts.  Additionally, the UP6Z can be used as a LocoNet Universal Panel and once connected to an existing LocoNet, it can be used to plug in additional LocoNet devices.
