- SPROG III DCC Decoder Programmer
- USB A to USB B cable
The SPROG III DCC Decoder Programmer is the perfect tool for programming and testing DCC locomotives! The SPROG III even has enough power to run a small to medium sized layout, perfect for those who may want to have a small test layout at home or in the office. Simply connect the SPROG III to a 12-18V DC power supply capable of supplying 3A and connect the supplied USB cable to your computer running JMRI Decoder Pro (free download).
Featuring a greater available power output than the SPROG IIv4, the SPROG III could allow up to 10 locomotives to be operated simultaneously on a small to medium sized layout.
The SPROG III is compatible with all major brands of decoder, including sound decoders and has sufficient power to program large scale decoders.
