I've got around 10 locos (HO) fitted with Faulhaber decoders and I need some help on selecting decoders and cv values appropriate for this kind of motor. I understand they are susceptible to damage.

Any help would be welcome.

***Hello David. You can actually use any brand as long as it has high frequency drive (called silent drive etc etc). I use the TCS M-1 in my own coreless motor powered loco's - Some brands can be hard to tune for coreless motors (I find Lenz a real pain sometimes for example). After lots of testing , for sheer excellent running and ease of setup (most need no adjustment at all) I've settled on the TCS M-1 as its back-EMF works well with them out of the box and performance is superb. I use them in my own loco's as well as those of my customers.

thanks for the help. I'll get some of the TCS decoders and give them a go.

Zimo are another brand which makes a point of recommended drive frequency and back-EMF sampling settings for Faulhaber coreless types. Haven't tried this aspect myself, but have been most impressed with the range of control tweaks that Zimo include on their decoders.
