KB334: DS51K1 - large scale?

This article was last updated on Jan. 18, 2012, 2:43 p.m. | Print Article | Leave Feedback

Can the DS51K1 be used with large scale DCC (22 volts)? What is the maximum DCC supply voltage for this decoder?

The DS51K1 is designed specifically to be used with Kato N-Scale Unitrack turnouts only.  It will not work for large scale turnouts. 

For use with bi-polar turnouts in large scale, the DS64 is a better choice.
