The PluX interface has been adopted by a number of European manufacturers - Roco, Fleischmann, Piko and Tillig to name a few.  In 2012 Dapol has begun installing PluX22 intefaces into their new OO models.  One main feature is that the decoder can only be installed one way so you do not have the problems you have with 6 and 8 pin decoders being installed 180 degrees out.  (Please check what decoder interface a loco has fitted - the details should be on the box and in the manual - if in doubt check with the retailer)

The PluX interface has been developed to allow up to 9 separate operable functions to be controlled by a locomotive decoder.  Manufacturers and digital installers are now building in such functions as smoke generators, cab lighting , digital uncoupling, firebox glow, operating pantographes and PluX gives them the ability to combine a number of these in one model. Plux is an interchangable system that allows a PluX22 socket to accept decoders with PluX22, PluX16, PluX12 or PluX8 plugs to be installed depending on your needs.
