    Very easy to install. Used it to convert my SD70 ace GHWB 4141 to DCC.

    Decoder review

    Posted by Luflorida on Jun 29th 2018

    The decoder is well suited for the locomotive. I used the identical type for my Kato GE AC 4400.
    With the BEMF having just a bit less than 100% compensation, the minor slowdown at the incline is just about perfect.

    The decoder installation into the GG1 required a minor mechanical modification of the decoder PC-board. The rounded T-section corners of the board did not fit into the casted GG1cavity. But a light stroke with fine file made it fit without effecting the printed circuitry.

    Not my best dcc install

    Well I followed the instructions to the letter & nothing happened. Usually lights blink if you have a short but nothing on this puppy. I sent it back to Digitrax and Im waiting to hear from them. My initial contact with Digitrax doesn't put too much faith in them we shall see.
