eMotion XLS Sound Decoder

The Massoth emotion XLS decoder is a powerful 4.0Amps driving, function, and sound decoder designed for installation in G scale locomotives equipped with 1 or 2 driving motors.

The XLS features a 3.5Amps output stage for up to two motors, 3 light outputs, 8 function outputs, 4 contacts inputs, a Massoth-SUSI interface, and an integrated 3-watt high performance sound amplifier with 6 independent sound channels.

The XSL offers selectable 14/28/128 speed steps, analog and digital operation, digital and analog Back EMF, and overload-overheat protection for motor and function outputs.

The decoder holds a little over 3 minutes of high quality digital sound. It stores a locomotive's prototypical operating sounds as well as an array of additional sounds that may be configured to suit individual tastes. The integrated digital power amplifier reproduces all sounds and side noises of a locomotive authentically.

Operating the XLS decoder with an additional power buffer increases its dependability: brief track power disruptions are bridged in analog and digital operation and contaminated tracks and switch frogs are negotiated without any speed changes or interruptions.

The XLS decoder comes with an LGB® DCC interface cable to simplify installation in locomotives equipped with an LGB® DCC interface. An optional interface cable to simplify Installation in locomotives equipped with LGB® six-pin decoder interface is available (product # 8312061).

The eMOTION XLS sound decoder supports the full NMRA protocol, and is compatible with all generations of the LGB® MTS system.

Features for Mallets, Rack Rail locomotives, and Dual Powered Locomotives: (1) The XLS Decoder has 2 separate inputs for synchronizing chuffs to wheel rotation in locomotives with two steam pistons like Mallets or steam rack rail Locomotives. (2) Starting with version 2.5, you can use CV 170 to define a function key which, when pressed, will activate/deactivate the rack noise on a steam rack rail engine, or switch the sound from electric to diesel and vice versa on a dual powered locomotive.

Massoth eMOTION XLS Decoder sound options

The XLS decoders are programmed at the factory with one of the locomotive sounds listed below. At any given time, we may not have in stock a factory programmed decoder with the sound you want. We can re-program any XLS decoder we have in stock with the specific sound you want, at no extra charge.

To view the sound data sheet for a specific decoder, click on the corresponding reference number. To view the picture of the prototype locomotive, click on the locomotive's name. To listen to a sample of how the decoder reproduces the sounds of a specific locomotive, click on the corresponding speaker icon.

The music you hear in the background of the sample is for copy protection only; you will not hear it when listening to an actual decoder.
