Function for Telex-Coupler !
Märklin has finally introduced a Delta Decoder with a function. The function is meant to be used with the
Telex-coupler only, since it is activated like the old mechanical direction-changers on Telex locomotives.
Like this :
|1.||click the directionchanger||Backwards||OFF|
|2.||click the directionchanger||Forward||ON|
|3.||click the directionchanger||Backwards||ON|
|4.||click the directionchanger||Forward||OFF|
Flicker-free Lights !
The 66031 features stabilized ground for flickerfree lamps !
So if you have locomotive with the new type of bulb-sockets, you have the ability
to have flickerfree lights.
What you do is : connect one lead from the lamp to the yellow(or gray) wire and one of the orange
wires to the other lead. - Simple !
If you don't have the new bulb-sockets, and therefore cannot connect the orange wires, you can always
use the normal way of removing flicker(as described on the "Digital 6080/90 Enhancements"- page).
Full 80-Address option !
At this point in time nobody has figured out how to control the lights using the "function"-key on the
control-Unit(6020/21). So the only "conversion" you can make is the full 80-address option.
As with the old Delta(6603) you can only chose between 15 addresses. with simple soldering you can
get ALL 80 addresses. The way to do the conversion is the same as for the old Delta, so read the about
the procedure there. The only thing that is different, is where you should solder - this can be seen here :
