DECODER DIGITAL LOCO HO
R8249 Locomotive Decoder
The R8249 NMRA Certificated decoder is capable of ‘picking up’ the control signals from the ‘Select’ and the ‘Elite’ or any other digital system and converting them into actions which includes moving forward and reversing at a determined speed, stopping and starting and in some instances if fitted, switching the locomotive’s lights on and off.
The Hornby R8249 decoder is also capable of keeping the locomotive running at a set speed no matter what gradients the model encounters.
Many newly designed locomotives have a socket positioned internally to accommodate the decoder, however, some do not and the basic instructions are included with the ‘Select’ as well as the ‘Elite’ and go someway to illustrate how to fit the decoder to those locomotives that do not have a decoder socket.
