Now the biggest name is sound is also biggest name in value!  Econami is a full-featured line of digital sound decoders designed with value in mind.

Available in three formats to suit a variety of steam, diesel and electric locomotives, Econami provides high-quality 16-bit sound, Hyperlight lighting effects, and Hyperdrive2 advanced motor control for enhanced realism. New features include Flex-Map technology, an easy-to-use method for assigning any function to any function key.

The Econami line includes our smallest sound decoder, the ECO-100, measuring just 27mm x 10.5mm x 5mm, as well as the ECO-400 4-amp version for models requiring a little more “beef.” The 21-pin ECO-21P mates nicely to any model with the NMRA-supported 21-pin socket.

Steam and diesel versions include a selection of exhaust chuffs or prime movers, along with 16 whistles or airhorns to suit the most popular models. In addition, each decoder features multiple options for airpumps or compressors, bells, and couplers for even more customization. And finally, for the first time ever, each format is available in an electric version that includes a trolley bell, air whistles, generator, pantograph, pneumatic doors, and more!

Format

ECO-100

Our smallest sound decoder, this micro 1-amp, universal-style format is ideal for small models with minimal space. It includes an optional capacitor or can be wired to a CurrentKeeper (P.N. 810140) to maintain performance over dirty track and switches.
