Econami™ Digital Sound Decoder

Available in five formats to suit a variety of steam, diesel, and electric locomotives, Econami provides high-quality 16-bit sound, Hyperlight lighting effects, and Hyperdrive2 advanced motor control for enhanced realism. New features include Flex-Map technology, an easy-to-use method for assigning any function to any function key.

The Econami line includes SoundTraxx’ smallest sound decoder, the ECO-100, measuring just 27mm x 10.5mm x 5mm; the new ECO-200 2-amp "Universal" style as well as the ECO-400 4-amp version for models requiring a little more “beef.” The 21-pin ECO-21P mates nicely to any model with the NMRA-supported 21-pin socket while the new ECO-PNP is similiar to the TSU-AT1000 in size.

All Econami™ models include a selection of the following:

  • Air compressors, airpumps, dynamos, couplers and brakes
  • Function-activated brake with synchronized sound effects
  • 40+ sound effects with a 7 band equalizer
  • Switching Mode – reduces throttle by 50% and inactivates all momentum CV setting – allows the decoder to instantly respond to throttle changes.
  • Support for easy CurrentKeeper installation to prevent momentary power losses during operation

Steam Features

  • 8 Exhaust chuff selections— light, medium, heavy, and geared (for 2-cylinder or articulated with wheel-slip settings)
  • 16 Whistles, 6 Bells, 4 Airpumps, 4 Dynamos, 3 couplers
  • Blower, Blowdown, Water Stop, Rod Clank
  • Function-activated cylinder cocks sound effect at any speed step
  • Drifting Mode: the exhaust volume will be reduced and side rod clank will play at an elevated level.

Diesel Features

  • 5 prime mover selections: EMD 567, EMD 645 Turbo, EMD 710 Turbo, GE FDL-16, ALCO 244
  • 16 Airhorns, 6 Bells, 2 Air Compressors, 4 Dynamos, 3 couplers
  • Auto-manual RPM-notching mode
  • Engine Startup, Shutdown and Exhaust (through 8 notches)

Tsunami™ DCC Mobile Decoders

SoundTraxx DCC Mobile Decoders provide high-performance operation and 14 Hyperlight™ lighting effects in a variety of easy-to-use formats for models that do not exceed a 1 amp stall current. Since they utilize Hyperdrive™ technology, these mobile decoders are easy to speed-match with Tsunami Digital Sound Decoders.

The 2-function MC1 Series DCC Mobile Decoders fit in many small N- and Z-scale models. The dual-mode MC2 Series DCC Mobile Decoders have four lighting outputs and support CVs 5 and 6 to allow for optional three-point speed curves.

SoundTraxx Adapters

JST-21PMEN Adapter

Here’s a neat idea from SoundTraxx® — the JST-21PMEN Adapter. This board gives you the ability to use the new 21-pin digital sound boards in locomotives not originally set up for them. It allows you to adapt TSU2 or ECONAMI 21-pin boards to 9-pin JST or NMRA 8-pin plug systems.

Plug the sound decoder into the board and then use either a 9-pin harness (STX part #810069) or 8-pin NMRA plug (STX part #810135) to adapt to your loco. Additionally, there are solder pads to attach additional wires for extra lighting functions; connecting a Current Keeper® and your speaker. When newer sound decoders are introduced it will be a snap to convert over. See the diagram below.

The adapter and wiring harnesses are in stock and ready to ship.
