Affordable

Econami is the most feature-packed decoder at its price-point. While it is lower in price, Econami provides more sounds, lighting effects, and advanced motor control features than comparable products. 

Available in three decoder formats this versatile Econami line includes 4 to 6 lighting outputs and 12 polyphonic channels that deliver 16-bit sound. 

Now sound is a viable option for new modellers, as well as those seeking a budget-friendly "DCC Solution" to bring more of their models to life.

Many of the features found in Tsunami 2 are also in the new Econami, including the F11 brake, 7-band equalizer, independent volume control, Hyperlight lighting effects, and more!

New Features

Econami includes exciting new features, such as the new Flex-Map technology for hassle-free function mapping of any effect to any F28 key, as well as to directional keys and the E-Stop button. Also incorporated are the 3-point speed curves, as well as Hyperdrive2 motor control for optimal slow-speed performance right out of the package
