DCC Concepts

A simple to install, easy to understand, reliable and full feature decoder that will always deliver excellent performance at a price that represents great value.
Small low cost 3 pole motors, even from the better brands can start to show signs of “cogging” at ultra slow speeds... So we wanted to get rid of that. We also wanted our customers to have easy access to a way to reduce stalling over insulated frogs and minor track dirt area  with smaller, lighter locos as well as those with imperfect pickups.

DCC Concepts have created a small, easy to install add-on device called “Stay Alive”. Loco’s with Stay alive installed tend to run smoother at slow speeds and while we don’t guarantee a totally “stall free” result, its certainly reduced significantly for all but the worst performing locomotives.

Installing Stay Alive to our decoders has been made easy for novice and expert alike, as each decoder has two colour coded wires ready for it to be added.
