ZIMO MX660 DCC Decoders offer the following features:
The MX660 is the universal board-style hardwire "micro model" for N scale sound in the ZIMO decoder range.
The MX660 is essentially the MX649 laid out flat with absolutely nothing on one side of the circuit board to allow mounting against any surface.
This revolutionary new format is perfectly suited for N scale narrow hood diesels and other applications where height and width are limiting factors.
The board-style format is only 9.5mm wide and 2.2mm thick and is blank on one side.
It features a robust 0.7A motor circuit, 1.1W amp, 6 normal function outputs with 1k ohm resistors on board, and connections for external energy storage, especially important for uninterrupted sound.
The large solder pads make it easy to terminate hardwire connections from the track pickup, motor, and lighting functions.
As with all ZIMO sound decoders, the MX660 features an on-board energy storage capacitor and direct connections for additional off-board energy storage capacitors for the sound processor to minimize interruptions in playback caused by poor power pickup.
Best of all, each function output includes a 1000 ohm resistor already installed on the board making it perfect for use with typical 3.2fV LED's.
The on-board capacitor and resistors eliminate the need for additional components that consume valuable space.
The MX660 is the perfect micro sound decoder for narrow hood diesels because it is the thinnest sound decoder on the market today, measuring just 2.2mm tall.
The footprint is so compact, it fits easily into almost any Kato, Athearn, Atlas, Intermountain, or other narrow hood N scale diesel.
The MX660 will be perfect for compact HO scale models as well.
