DCC Electrical Interface Connectors


 

Streamlined Backshop offers a wide variety of DCC decoders and installation components for sale.


These products are differentiated by many features.  One of the most critical features and criterion for decoder selection is the electrical interface.


The NMRA has developed a Recommend Practice document that is used by manufacturers to insure consistent application of the many decoder electrical interface connector types in use today.


There is no right or wrong connector, only the one that matches the locomotive installation or best meets the needs of your project.  



NMRA Recommended Practice 9.1.1
