    Has anyone seen this yet or had any hands on?

    I just happened to be going through their new catalog this morning and saw this page. No other information on their website yet.


    I am wondering if the cost will be a lot less then the ACC-D. Have an email into some of my vendors to try and find pricing...

    First I've heard of it.
    I'm sure the pricing will be way less than the ACC.
    Looks like it should be competitive with WM's SL 2-wire.

    I see that they are showing the DBR-6 600 volt splices with the decoders. I was recently told that the 600 v splices should be used on the 2-wire systems due to the higher voltages that they use.
    I've also always understood that the pre-filled wire nut type connectors should not be used on 2-wire systems because they interfere with the communications, although that info was back in the day of the first Hit Logic 2-wire systems.

    My only guess is RB decoders will cost 3x as much as the Hunters.

    But they'll probably be 3x more reliable as they are made in Switzerland or Denmark or some European country (I can't remember which) as opposed to Hunter's that are contract manufactured in China. :dancing:

    Denmark is where the decoders are made.

    I had the new RB two wire priced out today and it was about $800 for the base unit and about $75 for single station decoders
