CN Atlas RS3 Decoder Installation

This installation show the CN in the new 2008 version. However, this installation is the same for all previous version of the Atlas RS3.

The New Atlas RS3 is out, and the Classic N decoder is a perfect fit for this locomotive. The installation is exactly like the Classic N installation guide except for the motor isolation. We clipped the motor tabs (just like in the guide), then turned the clipped part so it is pointing towards the middle of the motor housing, and finally we wrapped it in a layer of kapton tape. A simple and effective way to prevent motor shorts during use.

Before the decoder installation

With a CN installed

After installing the CN with TCS exclusive auto-adjusting BEMF in the RS3 we enjoyed extremely slow speeds, and extremely realistic motor control.
