This is a receiver for controlling turnouts, signals, and uncoupler tracks. The m 83 supports the Motorola and DCC digital formats. The digital address can be set using the coding switches or by means of a programming track. The available address range in the Motorola format is up to address 320 and in the DCC format up to address 2040. The m 83 has 8 outputs, and each one can be controlled separately. The default setting is for up to 4 turnouts. Other functions are controlling lighting (dimmable) with a defined power-on behavior (example: street lighting) as well as controlling building lighting (houses, etc.). It is possible to have an outside power supply such as the 66361/66365/66367, only in conjunction with 60822. The 60831 and 60841 decoders can be arranged in any order desired. A 60821 accessory set per output is required for turnouts with turnout motors. Connections are done with set screw terminals. The maximum current load is 3 amps.
