Loco and adapter boards suitble for large scale decoders
 

MX695, ..96, ..97    Großbahn-Decoder

 

ZIMO offers a large variety of large scale decoders (4 families with 12 types) and loco boards (8 types) that provide about 30 variants or combinations. This way, many requirements can be met:

  • different dimensions, especially broad variants (MX695: 40mm) and slim ones (MX696: 29mm)
  • different connection variations for the loco wiringm see below
  • different number of function outputs (8 or 14) - all "complete" (2A in groups) - either complete servo connections (3-pole with 5V supply each) or just connections for servo control wires (5V must be provided externally)
  • up to 3 low voltage sources for loco equipment, especially 5V, and adjustable low voltage 1.5V and higher

*) the function outputs of ZIMO large scale decoders are equipped in groups of 4 each with overcurrent protection, which limits the total current of these 4 outputs to 2A each.


Except for these variations, all decoders and combinations are equipped alike and complete: from a synchronous rectifier for high performance without much heat productions to a 10 Watt audio amplifier. The small difference in the permitted motor and total current (6A if based on MX695, 4A if based on MX696) in reality does not have much impact.

Types of connections:   

Soldering wires to pads
and inserting the decoder
in the board's sockets

Connecting wires with
Crimp connectors in the
pin connectors of the loco board

Connecting ribbon cables to
mullion connectors on
double-breasted pin connectors

Connecting single wires
to screw terminals
