#11115 G-Scale Remote Coupler (Body Mount Coupler Kit)

Patent Numbers 7,810,660 & 5,775,524

Designed for use with Freight & Passenger cars.
The Kit includes the necessary components to convert both ends of one car to Remote Couplers. The #11115 Coupler Kit includes a standard size servo (that will need to mounted inside the car where space allows) to operate the body mounted #906 couplers. The car can be setup to remotely operate a single coupler or both couplers simultaneously.

If #11215 Kadee® RC Hand-Held Transmitter (sold separately) is being used to operate Remote Coupler, the #11110 Receiver Kit (sold separately) is needed to allow the Hand-Held Transmitter to communicate with servo.


Kadee® RC Remote Couplers can be operated several ways including with your existing DCC Locomotive Controller.

Best: We recommend using the Kadee® RC Remote System (#11215 Kadee® RC Hand-Held Transmitter & #11110 Receiver Kit).

Good: Using the Kadee® RC #11130 Servo Controller (factory programed) to operate Kadee® RC Remote Couplers along with a DCC (Digital Command Control), AirWire, or other locomotive control decoders with auxiliary/function output.

OK: Using DCC Locomotive Controllers (decoder) (whether being DCC, AirWire, or some other means) that have built in a Servo Controller that meets Kadee® RC Remote Couplers operational requirements*.

There are Digital Command Control (DCC) decoders on the market with built in Servo Controller* & (DCC) Servo Decoders* can be used to operate Kadee® RC Remote Couplers. Radio Control Servo Controllers* also can operate Kadee® RC Remote Couplers as well. There will be limited technical support we can provide for Non Kadee products, you will need to contact the DCC decoder manufacturer.
*The Servo Controller must operate at an adjustable 90 degree servo rotation.

Note: Do to risk of coupler over rotation, any other means of operating the Kadee® RC Remote Couplers other than a Kadee® RC Remote System will void the remote coupler warranty.
