The Mtroniks digiSound modules are 100% waterproof, plug-n-play sound module designed to take the hassle out of giving your model a realistic sound. Primarily designed for R/C boats, the sounds are also appropriate for small diesel rail locomotives.
The sound module has an input voltage range of 6V - 12V and requires NO programming or set up. It comes with a realistic sound pre-installed leaving just the installation to complete before you can get under way. The unit comes complete with built in amplifier, wiring loom and a 80.0mm diameter waterproof speaker (83mm sq mounting plate). You simply install the unit in your model and go.
Micron stocks 4 versions of the digiSound module and you can hear a sample of the sound by clicking on the link:
The module has inputs for start/stop of the engine sound and for sounding a horn - both of these are simple short-to-ground type inputs so can be easily switched using Micron MR603 receiver 'F' outputs. An external FET switch will be required for other receivers as the digiSound trigger input draws too much current for 'P' outputs.
Dimensions: 40mm x 35mm x 15mm. The connectors are on the top of the module and this increases the height to approx 30mm with the supplied plug and wiring harness. The overall height can be reduced to approx 20mm by carefully bending the header pins on the module through 90°.
The included 80mm speaker is dust and water proof so it is safe to use outside. However , it is too large for most railway scales, we have a selection of smaller speakers that can be used singly or in combination to fit the space available in a loco or trailing van/coach.
You should always install your speaker into a suitable enclosure to ensure the best power handling, frequency and bass response. The sound volume can be adjusted using a small screwdriver. The digiSound instruction manual contains helpful information on installation and use.
MyLocoSound Large Scale Sound Module
A low cost sound module for the larger scale railways: O Gauge, SM32, Gauge 1 & 3 and G Scale. Highly adjustable to suit a wide variety of UK, European and USA locomotives.
Premium versions of Steam, Diesel and Light Industrial now available. . Premium is MyLocoSound's 4th generation of their sound card. It features more recorded sounds instead of synthesized:
To achieve great realism, MyLocoSound Universal uses a blend of recorded sounds from actual locos with the adjustability of synthesised sound. A handheld remote control is used to make all adjustments and to configure the sound module from outside the locomotive. This remote control is available separatley as only one is needed to work with any number of MyLocoSound modules.
There are 8 versions of the sound module for british steam, universal steam, british diesel, universal diesel, electric, light industrial, tram/railcar and railbus.
Dimensions: 55mm x 32mm x 12mm. Working voltage: 9V - 24V, 24V is an absolute maximum.
Whilst ideal for use with a Micron receiver (e.g. MR603), the MyLocoSound Large Scale Sound Module also works well with simple track powered model railways. On these, the sounds can be triggered in three ways:
Full setup and usage information can be found in the PDF copy of the premium British steam (ver 21K), premium universal steam (ver 21B), premium British diesel (ver 20C), premium universal diesel (ver 20F), premium light industrial (ver 20G), electric (ver 19A) or railbus (ver 19B) instructions.
