MRC 112501 16 Bit Universal Heavy Steam HO DCC Sound Decoder
The MRC 16 Bit Universal Heavy Steam HO DCC Sound Decoder is a full featured DCC decoder with its small size specially designed to fit into the many tight configurations prevalent in HO scale steam locomotives. This Heavy steam locomotive decoder is for use with larger mainline types of steam locos, like Big Boys, Challengers, and F.E.F. Northerns. Includes a 9-pin JST wiring harness and a speaker socket for your MRC plug-in 8-Ohm speaker (sold separately).
Decoder has two bells and two whistles, along with two chuff types for articulated and non-articulated steam locomotives. Wheel arrangements not withstanding, steam locomotives fall into three types light, medium and heavy. These types are determined by the air compressor on the locomotive. Light locomotives use a single phase air compressor, medium and heavy locomotives use a cross-compound air compressor.
Equipped with adjustable back EMF, this new decoder provides fine tuning of the motor PID output frequency to ensure silent running and flexible torque output to give the locomotive better pulling power and finer speed control on uphill or downhill grades.
