The Tsunami2 TSU-PNP8

The TSU-PNP8 is a universal factory board replacement sound decoder suitable for use in many manufacturer‰۪s diesel models such as those made by Atlas, Athearn, and InterMountain Models. It is suitable for a wide variety of models from HO to S scale.

This decoder includes a connector to easily add aåÊCurrentKeeperåÊto maintain performance over dirty track and switches.

For added realism, you‰۪ll love our reactive Dynamic Digital Exhaust (DDE) feature. When your locomotive is traveling across flat terrain and simply maintaining speed, you will hear your locomotive chugging along. But, when the locomotive encounters a grade and the engineer applies more throttle to get the train up the hill, the engine sounds will automatically react and reflect the increase of power needed to crest the hill. DDE accomplishes this by calculating the changes in strain or load on the motor and adjusting the exhaust to appropriately simulate the work the engineer would be doing to the throttle of the engine. This gives Tsunami2 the ability to createåÊthe most realistic experience possible.

Our large selection of high quality sound effects include:åÊ

  • 10 Exhaust Chuffs
  • Up to 12 Prime Movers in each sound profileåÊ
  • Up to 12 BellsåÊ
  • 90 Whistles
  • 40+ Airhorns
  • Additional couplers, dynamos, cab chatter and more!

Additional realism can be simulated by adding functioning locomotive and train brakes, injectors, power reverse, firebox flicker and more.

The TSU-21PNEM8 simply plugs into models equipped with a 21-pin NEM connector.åÊ

The TSU-21PNEM8 can be wired to aåÊCurrentKeeper (P.N.åÊ810140åÊoråÊ810160) to maintain performance over dirty track and switches.
