their decoders not due to scale (gauge) of the locomotives but due to
the electric load which is pulled by the loco motor and that can be managed
by the decoder circuit. So you have to make your choice following the
needs of your locomotive motor. Often a "N-scale" decoder does
well in a small H0-locomotive, simply because the motor gets along with
500mA. In the Lenz decoder chart (by
Jan 1st, 2005) all current decoders are listed. You may build all decoders
into your locomotive without loosing guarantee. In case you do not like
soldering or changing an older loco model, we can do that for you. Locomotives
with decoder interface (NEM651 or NEM652 plug) need only removal of the
blind plug, connecting the decoder plug instead, put the decoder in place
and you are ready to go.
If not marked
different, Lenz dedoders have: Adresses 1 - 9999 (short adresses [CV1]
and long adresses [CV17&CV18]) * programming of address, start voltage,
start- and slowdown delay and other features * adjusting of velocity curve
* Use with either 14, 27, 28 or 128 speed-steps * switchable drive-direction
independent power outlet * programmable function power outlets: dim, blink,
tie funtions to buttons of your steering device * Digital plus decoders
can also be used on conventional analogous layouts * change of settings
during the locomotive is running on the layout (PoM) * multitraction (multiple
locomotives possible to connect in one train with automatic adjusted speed.
information can be found in the Lenz catalogue and on the Internet in
german or in english language.
