Product Description

(1) Plugs Directly on to Tortoise™, simplifies wiring, reduces failures. Just use two convenient screw terminals to connect to track power and you're up and running. All other connections are also made through screw terminals.

(2) Auto Throw™ feature automatically throws points when a train is approaching against the points. This eliminates derailments, layout shorts, loco and scenery damage and is ideal for difficult to reach turnouts and hidden staging.

"The Hare is an enormous value for the money. Our layout is currently under electrical construction. We etch our own boards for switch machine control and position indication. Computer operation is also involved. Mega labor is involved. Now, I know most modelers don't go to this length, but they don't get the reliability I get either. The Hare has cut my install time in half and increased my operational functionality, without losing any reliability. Thanks for your time. Keep up the good work. I look forward to the reporting feature of the Hare in the future.
Bob M."

(3) Smart Route™ feature sets up to 13 routes by simple address programming in addition to the primary decoder address. Each Smart Route can control an unlimited number of turnouts. The Smart Route eliminates complicated programming, the need for computer operation or system macros required by other stationary decoders.

"By the way the HARE is a great product. Programming these with an MRC Prodigy Advanced was a snap. Smart routes are so easy just enter the route number, the switch(s) address and whether it is clear or thrown. That is it. No individual CVs to enter. Operating with these has really been enjoyable."
- Ray C.

(4) Smart Default Ops™ allows all Hare™ controlled turnouts to move to a predetermined position when layout is powered up or remain as last thrown. When you power-up your layout this eliminates possible fouling the mainline.

(5) Operates LED Turnout Signals or remote Panel LED Indicators.

(6) Manual Push Button option for Control Panel Operations.

(7) System Reset by simple CV programming. Resets to factory defaults.

(8) Digitrax LocoNet, NCE Cab Bus and Lenz Express Net feedback and position reporting options are supported in Version II

(9) Automates Reverse Loop Turnouts using Smart Throw feature

(10) Compatible with all DCC Systems that support Accessory operations.

"I've just received my Hare™ I ordered (#6 in all). I love it, programming has been easy. This is a BIG plus for any DCC layout."

There are two Versions of the Hare™: [top]

Version I:

Includes features 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10 above, does not support feedback, see Version II.

MSRP $29.95

We understand that the Hare™ costs more than other stationary decoders but it has many unique important features that provide for better operations. A considerable portion of the cost is due to the convenience afforded by the Tortoise™ Connector and screw terminals that eliminate multiple solder terminations. Also, many Tortoise™ users are purchasing Tortoise™ compatible connectors anyway, this should be considered when evaluating the “Hare™
