This article was last updated on Jan. 18, 2012, 9:41 a.m. | Print Article | Leave Feedback

The DN163M0 is set up at the factory to control six functions.

The unit is prewired with one golden-white LED (shown in figure below) for the headlight and set up as Function 0 (F0F-forward).

Function outputs F0F/Yellow, F1/Green, F2/Violet, F3/Brown and F4/White/Yellow are available on the decoder and can be used by soldering wires from the pads indicated to the lights (or other functions) you wish to control.


When adding function wires, be very careful that the wires you add do not come into contact with any other pads or components on the board where they might create a short circuit.

All six function outputs can be set up with Digitrax FX3 lighting effects or as standard on/off functions.

All function outputs can be qualified based on:

Forward or Reverse direction of travel, or

Whether F0 is on or off, or

Both direction of travel and whether F0 is on or off, or

Whether the locomotive is stopped or moving.
