Lenz LE200 decoder?
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, July 03, 2005 11:54 AM
I have a Lenz LE200 decoder. The instructions came in German,and I have enough problem with English. I've managed to get it hooked up for the track power and motor connections. I found the forward and reverse lights. My question is what are the other connections for?
I've contacted Lenz and the decoder has been out of prodution so long that they don't have any info on it.
If someone has one of these decoders and english instructions for it, I would appreciate a copy.

It's a G scale decoder. 14 step with out sound.

Are you sure it's a LE200? According to data I found through a simple Google search using the term "Lenz LE200", this is a 2.5 Amp decoder with no function outputs.

That means it's probably made for O gauge, not large scale. Most G scale decoders are rated at 10 to 15 Amps output.

Lenz made a companion booster called the LP200 that could be connected to the LE200 to double its current capacity to 5 Amps for use in locomotives with dual motors, so maybe the extra connections you have are for that purpose.

Yes, it is a LE200. You may be right about the other connections being for the booster. I ran across something about the booster some time ago.
I have the LE 200 in a very old Stainz G scale so the current shouldn't be a problem.
