One of the Arnold decoders was produced by Lenz. It is still produced
and available, the LE075. It is a two part construction, giving some
leeway for the tightest of installations.
The most recent version has improved speed tables. It is 14/27 speed
step, programmable for address, starting voltage, acceleration and
Another choice that is the same size as the Arnold is the New LE040,
which has it's Conformance Warrant Pending. It is 14/27/28 speed step
and has all advanced features such as extended addressing, Advanced
consisting, etc. Plus the added bonus of back EMF, for smoothest slow
speed switiching and yard work possible.
