eMotion XLS Sound Decoder

The Massoth emotion XLS decoder is a powerful 4.0Amps driving, function, and sound decoder designed for installation in G scale locomotives equipped with 1 or 2 driving motors.

Part Number 8220051 - V51 Rügen / V52 DB diesel locomotive

The XLS features a 3.5Amps output stage for up to two motors, 3 light outputs, 8 function outputs, 4 contacts inputs, a Massoth-SUSI interface, and an integrated 3-watt high performance sound amplifier with 6 independent sound channels.

The XSL offers selectable 14/28/128 speed steps, analog and digital operation, digital and analog Back EMF, and overload-overheat protection for motor and function outputs.

The decoder holds a little over 3 minutes of high quality digital sound. It stores a locomotive's prototypical operating sounds as well as an array of additional sounds that may be configured to suit individual tastes. The integrated digital power amplifier reproduces all sounds and side noises of a locomotive authentically.

Operating the XLS decoder with an additional power buffer increases its dependability: brief track power disruptions are bridged in analog and digital operation and contaminated tracks and switch frogs are negotiated without any speed changes or interruptions.

The XLS decoder comes with an LGB® DCC interface cable to simplify installation in locomotives equipped with an LGB® DCC interface. An optional interface cable to simplify Installation in locomotives equipped with LGB® six-pin decoder interface is available (product # 8312061).

The eMOTION XLS sound decoder supports the full NMRA protocol, and is compatible with all generations of the LGB® MTS system.
