The UWT-50 "Mini" Throttle is an intelligently-resized version of our UWT-100 Universal Wifi Throttle. Though designed with a smaller profile, smaller screen, and different button configuration, it retains the full functionality of it's larger counterpart. The throttle uses WiFi to communicate wirelessly with your Command Station to control your trains, trackside devices, and other connected systems. Like the UWT-100, this Mini-Throttle (UWT-50) is compatible with both LCC and the WiThrottle protocol, meaning you can use it like you would any smartphone controller - but there's so much more it can do!

The UWT-50 Universal WiFi Throttle from TCS is the new standard in utility WiFi control for model railroads. This throttle brings a new level of ergonomic comfort and operational convenience to a smaller, more affordable package than the UWT-100. Instead of spending time with your head in a manual trying to understand your throttle, the intuitive interface of the UWT-50 allows you to focus on the important things - operating and enjoying your trains!

Engineered to work with most current DCC systems, and increase adoption and use of LCC, this throttle relies on the robust and universal standard of WiFi communication and leaves outdated control systems behind. The UWT-50 can be conveniently updated from the comfort of your own home, meaning you'll always have access to the newest features and your handheld won't quickly pass out of date. We are confident that the UWT-50 will quickly become your favorite throttle to use.
