LokSound L V4.0 for "O" Scale Locos:
The Brand New LokSound L V4.0 decoders are made to fill a huge void in the O scale DCC market. For years now many have been using a large scale non sound decoder for the motor and wasting an HO Scale DCC and Sound decoder to operate the sound as no High Amperage, High Quality sound decoder has been available that will fit comfortably into an O scale locomotive. The wait is finally over! The LokSound L V4.0 and LokSound L Select decoders will easily use the many respective ESU V4.0 and Select sound files already on the market as they are of course programmable with the famous ESU LokProgrammer hardware.
The LokSound L decoder is still a combination of driving decoder and sound module on one PCB. You can install it in nearly every loco in O scale locomotive with its dimensions of only 2 inches in length and 1 inch wide! Made to Plug and Play in to New Atlas (and others) O Scale Locomotives, the Decoders will also come with an interface board for hardwiring into whatever Brand Locomotive you have.
With a constant current of 3Amps continuous the decoderÂ’s load control will power all current O scale locomotives whether having 1 or 2 motors with ease. The decoderÂ’s hardware includes 9(!) function outputs, ability run 2 servos, and inputs for 3 hall sensors (commonly used for syncing Steam Chuffs). You can also add 2 speakers as there are 2 separate speaker outputs (one Channel). Additionally there is the ability to add an external volume control and external power pack. Add this to the powerful logic contained in the LokSound V4.0 and Select technology already on the market and this new decoder is a force to be reckoned with! Finally Â“O ScalersÂ” will have the Power, Sound and Motor Control they need, in a package that will fit in their locomotives!
