SPROG IIv4 - NEWEST VERSION!
Sprog IIv4 - The fourth generation of internal microcontroller hardware used, which now has faster processing, more capacity for features, and in the latest two series an inbuilt USB interface that eliminates a separate chip and a special USB driver.
Provides a one-stop source for setting up and running any DCC locomotives; ideal for off-layout programming and test set-ups.
- SPROG II has sufficient power to program sound decoders, even in large scales, so no power booster is necessary.
- SPROG II works with all those "difficult" decoders that don't seem to read back on other systems.
- SPROG II also includes the ability to test your locos, or run your layout, with on-screen computer control, and full DCC operation.
For full details read the SprogIIv3 UserGuide here.
SPROG II includes a 12V 1.25A regulated power supply and all needed cables and software.
The SPROG family of DCC devices
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.
