Notes:

  • If any of these features are provided, then this CV is Mandatory
  • Not All Digital Decoders don’t implement all the CVs, but if the function is provided the relevant CV information must be adhered to.

 

Definitions

  • Mandatory (M)
    CVs identified at Mandatory must be present to conform to the standard

 

  • Recommended (R)
    Those marked Recommended the NMRA strongly encourages their implementation

 

  • Optional (O)
    Optional CVs can be included if the manufacturer wishes.

 

  • Read Only
    Indicates a CV that is set and cannot be altered.

 

  • Uniform Specification
    CVs are specific to the implementation and no uniform specification is needed. Others must be implemented in a uniform manner to maintain compatibility. If marked Yes, the CV must be implemented according to a common specification. If there is no Y in the column, the CV must be used for its designated purpose, but the actions taken by the decoder for a certain CV value can vary among decoder makers.

 

  • Dynamic
    These CVs are used for Unsolicited Decoder Initiated Transmission.
