Lenz Silver 10321-01 21 Pin Decoder
Lenz Silver 21 Pin Decoder
The SILVER 21 + is like the Silver +, but equipped with a 21 pin interface plug located on the circuit board and even more space saving due to its 2.5 mm shorter design.
The DIGITAL plus SILVER 21 locomotive decoder has a built in NMRA 21 pin
plug and is suitable for all DC locomotives with continuous current draw of 1.0
Amp. or less. For OO/HO models with 21MTC decoder plug
When the Lenz Silver 21 pin decoder is out of stock its usually because of availability in the uk, a suitable alternative is the ESU Lokpilot 5 21 Pin decoder which can be viewed by clicking this link
Some information on Lenz Decoders well worth noting if you are considering which decoder to buy, over the years we have only experienced 1 genuine failure on a Lenz decoder and 1 failure on a controller despite having sold many hundreds. One of the main reasons for this is that accross the range of lenz decoders they are protected by good quality thermal overload circuits. A short circuit is detected but also when a long overload causing similar thermal damage occurs the drive circuit is shut down and fully protected. This means that instead of simply blowing when under conditions of short or overload like many US based decoders with inferior circuitry, they will simply cut out and allow you to reset either by thermal reset or overall reset. Essentially it is very difficult to lose a Lenz decoder through short circuit so you get a second chance instead of a puff of smoke. They are more expensive but they are worth it
