71800 - Energy buffer/Stay alive unit for all usual H0 Decoders Reliably bridges small power interruptions Characteristics 71 800 • Ideal for two and three axle vehicles • With its own intelligence it is suitable for almost all of the usual locomotive decoders • Prevent jerky running with dirty rails • Reliably brings small vehicles across long turnout routes • Buffers the Sound in vehicles with poor power pick-up • Intelligent charging circuit • Programming with a DCC or Motorola Digital centre • Does not inhibit programming of the locomotive decoders • Microprocessor controlled charging circuit booster overloading • Simple connection with four wires Description The IntelliDrive-Energy Buffer reliably bridges small power supply interruptions. Jerky running on dirty tracks and across long turnout routes will no longer happen. Even the Sound will no longer have dropouts. Because of its in-built intelligence the Energy Buffer can be used with all the common locomotive decoders. Connection is made with four wires and is very simple. Two wires are connected to the vehicle’s power pick-up, two wires are connected to the decoder. The Energy Buffer has a microprocessor-controlled charging circuit. Programming of locomotive decoders, even with an installed Energy Buffer, is possible without difficulty because the charging circuit is switched off during programming. This special charging circuit prevents overloading of boosters even when many vehicles have Energy Buffers fitted. The variable changing concept allows a delay (start-up time) to be programmed into the Energy Buffer, which it then uses to delay the charging of the Gold cap after the power is first switched on. The Energy Buffer decodes the speed step in DCC operation. If the locomotive’s speed step is 0 the Goldcap is randomly charged. If the speed step is larger than 0, the Goldcap is continuously charged. Various parameters are programmable with CV-Programming (see CV Table). Installing the Energy Buffer 71 800 Mount the Energy Buffer into the vehicle so that no electrical connection is made between the Energy Buffer and other conducting parts of the vehicle. A short circuit will result in destruction of the component and may also damage other components in the vehicle. Ensure that the Energy Buffer is firmly seated and cannot move while the vehicle is driving. Connecting the cables Connections on the wires to the locomotive decoder should only be made by experienced specialists. It requires the appropriate tools, like a soldering station with the finest soldering tip, as well as technical competence. When an Energy Buffer is installed into a vehicle, the red wire is connected to the right pick-up (or pick-up shoe) and the black wire to the left pick-up (or chassis, wheels). The brown wire is connected to the decoder earth (GND) and the blue wire either to the +20 V of the locomotive decoder, or, when only the Sound from a Sound decoder is used, with the +15V

The IntelliDrive-Energy Buffer reliably bridges small power supply interruptions.  Jerky running on dirty tracks and across long turnout routes will no longer happen. Even the Sound will no longer have dropouts. Because of its in-built intelligence the Energy Buffer can be used with all the common locomotive decoders.


Connection is made with four wires and is very simple. Two wires are connected to the vehicle’s power pick-up, two wires are connected to the decoder.


The Energy Buffer has a microprocessor-controlled charging circuit. Programming of locomotive decoders, even with an installed Energy Buffer, is possible without difficulty because the charging circuit is switched off during programming. This special charging circuit prevents overloading of boosters even when many vehicles have Energy Buffers fitted.  The variable changing concept allows a delay (start-up time) to be programmed into the Energy Buffer, which it then uses to delay the charging of the Goldcap after the power is first switched on.
