Non-Sound Decoder
• Autodetection of digital or analog operation
• Suitable for any Digital Command Control (DCC) system, including: Digitrax®, NCE, MRC® DCC, Atlas® commander®, Bachmann® E-Z command®, Lenz® digital plus®, Zimo®, LGB® MTS®, ROCO®, Fleischmann® Twin-Center®
• Suitable for AC-, DC- and coreless motors
• Super silent running due to pulse frequency of 40 kHz
• Load compensation for optimal running especially on uphill or downhill gradients; exceptional slow running characteristics
• Load control can be adapted to any motor by means of 3 CVs
• Dynamic Drive Control (DDC) - Back EMF active at low speeds for smooth slow running operation with reduced influence at high speeds
• Back EMF also active in conventional AC or DC mode - User has full control of motor and acceleration
• Acceleration and deceleration can be switched with function button
• Switcher mode (half speed) can be activated with function button
• Up to 4 auxiliary function outputs suitable for smoke units, interior lighting, automatic couplers, for raising and lowering pantographs, ditch lights or lighting the fire box
• Individually adjustable brightness of lighting
• Special lighting effects such as blinking, fire box, Mars light, Gyra light etc. can be set for each function individually
• Function mapping. All functions can be allocated to any of 12 function buttons. Multiple allocations are possible allowing for the combination of sound and functions e.g. the sound of shoveling coal and light flickering in the firebox
• Short circuit protection for motor and function outputs
