Programming Kato Decoders for N700

Recommended Posts

ekeefe

Hello,

 

Does anyone know of a source for English language instructions for Kato DCC decoders?

 

I just purchased the following:

 

18 - FR11 (for interior lights)

3  - FL12 (for head and tail lights)

2  - EM13 (for train motor)

 

I am going to install them into my Kato N700. I have the complete 16 car train. I bought spares just in case.

 

I am trying to program the address of the FR11's starting at 100 and going through 116.

 

I am not sure if I am required to set a separate CV first, them the address.

 

I have the Japanese instructions for all 3 types but can't read them.

 

I have tried programming them with both an ESU ECoS system and an NCE Power Pro-R.

 

Any help would be great. Thank you in advance,

 

ED

Hello, and welcome to the board!!

 

With a tip of the hat to Kashirigi: he just recently found what you are looking for here:

On the FR11, you should just program the address as usual. The decoders are "write only" and as I recall, at least one of the models actually causes your programmer to return an error when programmed correctly! So don't trust the feedback you're getting from your programmer.

Also be aware that decoder 10-353 only allows for a 2 digit address
