Provides the same programming and control features of the SPROG II, in the same compact package, but with a major increase in available power output.
The power increase is really useful for those wanting to run their layout from DCC, in the most economical way.
With up to 2.5A, the SPROG3 will enable you to run as many as 10 locomotives simultaneously
(typical operating load for N and modern HO locos is under 0.25A each, even for most sound locos!).
Note: Increased current is not generally required for CV programming, as this is specified by the NMRA not to exceed 250mA.
For full details about SPROG3 read the Sprog3 UserGuide and the SprogIIv3 UserGuide here.
SPROG 3 includes a 14V 3A regulated power supply and all needed cables and software.
Controlling model railroad operation increasingly uses DCC, and the SPROG DCC Programmer offers the ideal solution for programming and maintaining your fleet of DCC-equipped locomotives, in any scale from Z to G!
With the industry's most comprehensive support for decoders from all the leading manufacturers, the SPROG DCC family is now growing to meet the power needs to run your layouts.
SPROG II and SPROG3 are stand-alone DCC programmers and controllers, able to be used in a complementary manner to an existing DCC system, or on its own.
The SPROG II or SPROG3 is not an interface to a DCC system, but does the things a typical Command Station does, in an easy to use, computer-controlled manner.
A SPROG gives you the ability to program DCC decoders using your computer, without the need to move your computer to the railway room, or your existing DCC system to the computer room.
The SPROG accepts commands from the computer and formats them into DCC packets for programming of decoders or operating small layouts or DCC accessory systems.
No additional hardware is required for programming sound decoders, but note that only the DCC CVs may be programmed. The SPROG is not able to download new sound files to sound decoders, as each vendor has their own proprietary format.
There are several SPROG products now available, so which one is right for your needs?
All SPROG products are sold in the North American market with appropriate high-quality regulated power supply, power and USB computer cables and all software on CD with full instructions.
