We are pleased to introduce our New SILVER+ Series decoders that incorporate the highest performance possible with Silent /Back emf capability, RailCom, unparalleled short and overload protection. Ultra-thin for tight places, the one-sided SILVER+ decoder introduces a radical change in both performance and economical price. The SILER + decoder is currently shipping.

Add to this all the high end DCC features common in Lenz Decoders, plus a broad array of advanced lighting features and function mapping capabilities.  SILVER+ decoders have 2 (mini) or 5 built- in functions, which can be configured to one or more of the 29 NMRA defined DCC functionsThe decoder operation (such as switching speed and braking delay) can also be configured by up to 3 additional function inputs.

All the SILVER and SILVER+ decoders come with our leading 10 year warranty and can have their software upgraded using the Digital Plus decoder programmer even after the decoder is installed in the locomotive.

         

RailCom introduces a whole new generation of capabilities for DCC by providing for the first time the ability of a DCC decoder to communicate performance information back to the command station.

  • Fast locomotive identification 
  • Decoder initiated information
  • Track train location
  • Fast read back of CV values while programming on the main
  • DCC command acknowledgement

Asymmetrical DCC allows your layout to come alive even if you only have one operator.  You can also use asymmetrical DCC to enforce speed control through important sections of your layout or to stop a train in a siding, in the station, or before an occupied rail crossing. In order to achieve the operation you want with Asymmetric DCC, check out the different levels of block management.

 

Features include:

*Note: the SILVER+ Direct and MP version decoder is suitable for motors that have very high (6 amps and more) stall currents but do not peak over 1.8 amps
