Is this a stupid question?

I have a Lokprogrammer, which I use to read CV's on ESU chips.

 

However, I just needed to read from a friend's Lionheart O Gauge Pannier fitted with a Zimo sound chip.

 

Question is: Can I read CV's just using my NCE Powercab? I've searched the manual, but can't find out how.

 

Cheers

Bromsgrove's answer is the title of the section in the PowerCab manual.....

Well said, Richard! :)

 

The Power Cab is actually very good once you set it to programming track mode. It has enough oomph to read sound decoders as well. It will also readily program function only decoders without adding any resistances - however, I'm not sure if it will read those without some additional resistance in the line.
