Deltang Rx6x Receiver End Of Availability
Deltang receivers have been responsible for a major growth in the
use of R/C for model railways.
Their breadth of application (N Gauge through Gauge 1) is unequalled
in the market. The use of standard DSM2/DSMX protocols and rich functionality
has enabled R/C in models that were previously thought impossible.
You may have seen an announcement on the Deltang
about obsolecence of the Rx6x series model rail receivers:
Rx60, Rx61, Rx62, Rx63, Rx65 and Rx66. The Rx47 is also affected.
This, understandably, will cause consternation among existing
Deltang users and those considering a step into model rail R/C.
The main reason for DT's decision is that one of the devices
used on these receivers (Cypress CYRF6936) has been obsolete for some time
and world-wide stocks are nearing exhaustion.
Unless Deltang can find a buyer for the business, production
of Rx6x will stop sometime around the end of 2020 and supply
from resellers will dry up early in 2021.
We want to reassure customers that there is a future and that your
investment in Deltang receivers and transmitters will not be wasted.
Micron is developing a range of receivers using a modern chip, one
that the manufacturer has committed to at least 20 years availability.
The new transmitters and receivers will be compatible with existing
Deltang installations: Micron transmitters will operate Deltang
receivers and new Micron receivers can be operated by existing
This work does take time and there is likely to be a gap between disappearance
of a Deltang receiver and release of the Micron equivalent. We are working
hard to make this gap as small as possible.
A Rx102 replacement is already available, the MR001.
Enhancements, including more extensive features,
are planned for later this year.
A replacement for Rx66 will be next, followed by a Rx65 replacement.
Replacements for Rx60, Rx63 and Rx47 will take longer.
