DiMAX 1210Z


The DiMAX 1210Z Digital Central Station is a favorable alternative since it is built on the same technical properties as the DiMAX 1200Z. Up to 12 Amps driving current without an integrated transformer allows using the 1210Z for all scales from Z to G. Input Voltage: 16 to 24 Volts DC. The current output can be adjusted to 4, 7, or 12 Amps. This option is desirable for smaller scales.

The 1210Z features a voltage limitation of 22 V which is the optimum for garden layouts which often suffer of voltage drops. This should not be a problem for decoders that are in compliance with the NMRA standard. This standard requires decoders to be able to handle voltages up to 27 V. Decoders of Massoth® and LGB® are tested for max 30V to be able to guarantee a stable and consistent operation.

A separate programming track outlet, booster connection and a user friendly PC Programming interface are integrated as well. The 1210Z provides a connector for LGB® or DiMAX boosters on the back of the unit. Other NMRA compatible boosters may be used.

  • Up to 12 Amps track current
  • Adjustable max track current: 4 Amps, 7 Amps, or 12 Amps ;according to the needs of the layout
