Conventional or Command Control operators have chosen the Z-4000 transformer as their go-to transformer for nearly 20 years. The industry's most powerful UL listed transformer, the Z-4000 delivers 400 watts of continuous power at about a $1.00 per watt. There simply is no better, affordable power supply for AC model railroads than the M.T.H. Z-4000.
Equipped with two smooth-operating, wide-range 10amp throttles to let you power two different tracks, the Z-4000 lays down up to 22 volts AC onto each track it controls. Bright LED displays monitor voltage and amperage outputs for each channel while the fast-acting resettable circuit breakers protect your trains and accessories from damaging voltage spikes. A built-in cooling fan keeps the unit's internal circuits running at max capacity for hours of continous operation making the Z-4000 a great choice for club layouts, public displays and home layouts alike. Two separate accessory outputs are included making it easy to provide 10 - 14 volt continous AC output for trackside accessories, switches, lighting and more.
Conventional operators will love the built-in Proto-Sound programming features allowing operators to access original Proto-Sound locomotive functions without bell and whistle button sequencing. The built-in powerup features of the Z-4000 prevent an accidental power push to the layout. No more accidental train startups!
Why The UL Or CSA Listing?
To protect our customers and their trains, M.T.H. Electric Trains is committed to manufacturing safe, UL or CSA approved transformers and power supplies. By subjecting our transformers to the strenuous tests and requirements of Underwriters Laboratories and/or CSA, M.T.H. helps ensure that our products meet the same requirements as other consumer electronics sold today. When choosing a new transformer, model railroaders should only look for those that have received a UL or CSA listing.
