DCC Solutions - Plug and Go! DCC Decoders

DCC Decoders specifically setup and pre-programmed for Australian Model Locomotives by DCC Solutions.

Simply Plug and Go!

Nothing more for you to do!

To make purchasing the right decoder, we have selected a number of Australian HO Models from our local manufacturers and have pre-programmed a robust, high quality DCC decoder from ESU to suit that model with the correct decoder settings and your own DCC Loco Call-Up ID Number to make it run just right and this will make your purchase and installation easy.

To help find the right decoder for your model easier, we have split the selection into 3 groups: 1-NSW locos, 2-VIC locos and 3-OTHER locos
There are a couple of models listed which are not DCC Ready for a simple Plug & Go! install but the decoders are pre-program ready for installation.

Here at DCC Solutions we have taken the guess work out of choosing the right decoder for your model.

Decoder Function Mapping and Decoder Settings

The function mapping and decoder settings for the Plug & Go! decoders are setup to suit each individual model and designed to work with other sound and non-sound ESU decoders from DCC Solutions, enabling you to mix and match decoders amongst your collection and still be able to run them in the same way together. But don't forget, that the functions can be remapped to suit your own personal preference or if your DCC System is restricted to 12 functions or less.
To learn more about how to use the functions beyond F9 see the Info & Help page.
