Massoth supplies a wide range of decoders for the large scale market. Their decoder range is named “eMOTION” and offers both driving decoders with and without sound. Naming policy: M to XXL for size, an S is added if the decoder is equipped with sound.

Which one do I need?

The decoder you need depends on the current consumption of your locomotive. For a locomotive with 1 motor, the M and L decoders are recommended. Locomotives with two motors require the XL 3A decoder. Is the current consumption close or above 3 Amps? The XXL is for you.
