Add To Comparison

10231 Lenz Standard Loco Decoder. Motor current 1amp continuous, 1.8 amp maximum, NEM 652 Plug Connection, 3 Function outputs, Dimensions 23mm length x 16.6mm wide x 3.5mm height. Load capacity 3 x 100mA.


Motor control

The decoder has a high-frequency control (23kHz) with Back EMF. To adapt it to the type of locomotive used, you can simply choose between different motor types. These individual motor types include parameter sets which have been specially adapted to the respective models. Moreover, it is also possible to carry out fine-tuning via various CVs. Of course you can switch off both the high-frequency control as well as the control system itself. The minimum, maximum and mid speed can be set; the decoder adapts the characteristic speed line dynamically to ensure a steady, smooth curve. Independently of this, it is also possible to program an individual characteristic speed line. You can use up to 128 running notches.


Lenz have defined the continuous or maximum current-carrying capacities of the decoder motor outputs. The continuous load is achieved without special installation of heat sinks or other cooling methods

Overload protection

The decoders are protected against overloading, short circuits and overheating.

Starting and braking delay

The starting and braking delays can be set independently of each other. These delays can be enabled and disabled via a function by pressing the key (default setting function 4) of the digital system once.

Shunting speed

The shunting speed can be set via a function; (default setting function 3) it halves the speed.

Function outputs

Three function outputs can be mapped to the functions of the digital system according to NMRA.

Lighting effects

Different lighting effects can be set at the four function outputs:

Setting the brightness (dimming), can be switched via a function as desired

Mars light

Gyra light

Strobe and double strobe

Different settings for random flickering (ideal for a steam locomotive fire box)
