This page lists the numbers and names for all of the Configuration Variables as defined by the NMRA Standards used in TCS decoders. You can read the NMRA Standards for Configuration Variables (CV's) (Document No. S-9.2.2) for yourself on the NMRA website: NMRA Standards and Recommended Practices

NOTE: Not all CV's listed on this page are supported by TCS, and not all supported CV's are universally supported by all products. For example, RailCom configurations, lighting output assignment, and other features which require hardware support may not be applicable to your decoder. Pay special attention to the CV Addendums for your specific decoder. If you are unsure what your decoder is, you can read CV 249 the Decoder Hardware Model Identifier. If you are unsure if your decoder supports a feature, visit the specific product page for your decoder on TCS' Website for a full list of features.
