Decoders, Harnesses, Testers, Installation Supplies

  • Complete instruction manuals can be downloaded at no charge from the TCS website.
  • Sound samples are also available from the website
  • Autodetection of analog or DCC power source
  • Multiple Whistles / Airhorns / Bells

Decoders

  • Auto-adjusting BEMF (outstanding slow speed performance) plus Quiet Drive.
  • WOW™ Sound – both Steam and Diesel Sounds.
  • “LED” Decoders – onboard resistors for LEDs. The T Series and KAM Series onboard current limit resistors connected in series allow for LED installations with no external resistors for any of the lighting outputs (Use the standard (non-LED suffix) decoders if your locomotive already has series connected current limit resistors for LEDs).
  • KAT & KAM Series decoders with built in Keep-Alive™ technology.
  • Keep-Alive™ (KA) devices are used to supply power to decoders during times of power interruption due to dirty track or problematic track work. KA1 provides 2-5 seconds operation without power. KA2 provides 6-15 seconds operation without power
  • Extensive installation photos and video tutorials available for all products on the TCS Website.
