Bachmann Other 36-557 E-Z Command 1 Amp 4 Func. 21 Pin DCC Decoder DC Compatible


DCC 21 Pin Decoder with Back EMF and DC compatible, 4 Amplified functions and 2 logic level functions.

This item is a direct replacement for 36-554 and has a higher specification as follows:

The 36-557 has been upgraded to include several new features. Produced for Bachmann by ESU, this decoder is an essential item to get any Branchline model with a 21 pin DCC decoder socket equipped and ready for running on DCC.

The impressive specification for this decoder is as follows:
Supports all NMRA programming modes
14, 28 and 128 speed steps
Adjustable Back EMF settings
Analogue (DC) operation
Short and Long addressing
0.9 Amp continuous motor load
Function outputs can be set to different effects
Function outputs: 4 powered outputs (250mA per output, 500mA total load)
2 logic level outputs
Railcom and Railcom+ equipped
Compatible with all NMRA compliant DCC controllers

For some Guagemaster Prodigy Controllers the EMF will need to be switched off to provide smooth running. This can be acheived by writing 16 to CV49 (this is factory set to 17).

We now only ship to the United Kingdom

Covid-19 is still causing long delays in shipping to destinations outside the UK and Brexit has added new complexities and additional local charges payable by the customer within the EU. Because of these issues we will reluctantly no longer be able to process orders for delivery outside of the UK. Although we will keep this under review it is not anticipated to change for the rest of 2021. For customers overseas with existing orders, we will contact you once your order is ready to be shipped to organise delivery to the address on your order.
