The Austrian manufacturer's new device captures the speed of model trains, ideal for the setting of prototypical speeds on DCC-fitted locomotives.

Halling Modelle has developed a model speed meter for modellers. Designed to be placed lineside on an HO scale (3.5mm:1ft) layout, the MTS-100 device converts a linear speed into a scale reading in km/h. The reading can be used to set the V-max (top speed) of DCC locomotives to their accurate prototypical top speed, or speed match locomotives when running in a consist (double-headed).

The new model speed meter from Halling Modelle is small and wireless, and allows precise measurements, whether at home, at a club, or at exhibitions. Select the scale of the model, and device will directly convert the measured speed into 'real' km/h.

Halling Modelle commented, "The simple and mobile measuring device allows precise measurements. Just select the scale of the model, and the MTS-100 will directly convert the measured speed to scale km/h."
