Hornby R7322 HM7000-21TXS: Bluetooth? & DCC Sound Decoder (21-pin)
Part of the innovative new HM7000 range, this 21-pin Bluetooth? and DCC sound decoder is ready to plug into locomotives featuring a 21-pin (NEM660) socket. You'll find the 8 pin socket in Hornby locos and many other locomotives in OO, HO and some smaller scale locomotives.
The decoder is designed to supply 1000mA continuous load to the main motor and a peak demand of 1500mA. Making it highly suitable for most 00 and HO scale locos.
This decoder also has sound capabilities and comes with a high quality 'sugar-cube' miniature speaker. This is quickly and easily plugged into a socket on the decoder.
Also included are assorted 'speaker enclosures'. When installing the speaker inside your locomotive, picking the largest enclosure which will fit inside the loco body will give the best sound reproduction from your speaker.
Download your first set of sounds and install them via the HM7000 app - you can download different sound packs and change those on your decoder later if you wish.
An R7377 Power Bank can be purchased separately and added to this decoder. We recommend for ease you do this during the first install. The Power Bank will keep the loco operating during short power outages when running over dirty track or complex points - keeping the sounds operating and the loco moving.
1 Decoder, 1 Sugar-cube Speaker, 1 set of assorted speaker enclosures.
