71421 - Brown Sockets
Price: $ 1.67

Brown Sockets

A package comes with 10 pieces. These sockets can be used with the standard plugs and sockets from the 71400 assortment.

These plugs and sockets cannot be used with the earlier versions (package, item no. 7130). The sockets will fit as plugs with some limitations into the sockets on the older versions of control boxes. The control components and decoders in the current Marklin program have been changed to the new standard for plugs and sockets.

72020 - Current-Conducting Close Coupler that Can Be Uncoupled
Price: $ 6.89

Current-Conducting Close Coupler that Can Be Uncoupled

This coupler is for a close-coupled connection between cars with single-conductor current transmission. It can be used in the close coupler pocket for all modern 26.4 cm / 10-3/8” and 27 cm / 10-5/8” long Marklin H0 cars with a guide mechanism. This means that a single pickup shoe will be enough for a consist of lighted cars. In addition to two current-conducting close couplers, each set also has the hardware for current transmission through the guide mechanism as well as the terminal clips for the interior lighting wire for one car. Each package has 2 current-conducting close couplers and the hardware for the current transmission to convert a car. Installation instructions are included.

The 72020 current-conducting coupler, which can be uncoupled, is an alternative or conversion option for the current-conducting rigid coupler drawbars in the 7319 conversion set.

72442 - Braking Module
Price: $ 55.77

Braking Module

Signal mechanism with integrated circuits for controlled stopping of digital locomotives with high-efficiency propulsion. This module has connections for a two-aspect color light signal, for the 3 necessary lengths of track for controlled stopping of a locomotive. The braking module is operated either with a k 83 decoder or with a 7272/72720 conventional control box. Dimensions 100 x 54 x 22 mm / 3-15/16" x 2-1/8" x 7/8". The braking module requires 3 electrically isolated lengths of track in the signal area. The first part is a transition area, which corresponds to the length of a ski-shaped pickup shoe (approx. 70 - 90 mm / 3" – 4"). The second length of track is the actual braking area, in which the locomotive comes to a controlled stop. The length of the braking area is determined by the brake delay setting on the locomotive’s decoder. This second length of track should be at least 40 - 50 cm / 16" – 20". The third length of track is a safety section, in which the operating voltage is turned off as in standard signal blocks. This prevents the locomotive from “running through” the signal block unintentionally. The braking module can be used for color light and for semaphore signals. Locomotives with built-in digital or Delta electronic circuits without a control feature sometimes come to a stop in the braking section or even in the safety section. We cannot tell you exactly how each of these locomotives will behave. We therefore do not recommend using the 72442 braking module with locomotive decoders that do not have a control feature.

All of the connections use the new plugs. This brake module works the same as the 72441 brake module.
