Massoth has announced a new switch drive called “EVO-S”, which is focused on delivering both analog and digital operation in a small form factor.
Having digital capabilities built-in is a unique selling point compared to switch drives from other brands, as they require a separate digital decoder to be attached.

The Massoth EVO-S will be available in May, and can be ordered under article number 8444000. The MSRP is at € 54,95.
To illustrate the small form factor, Massoth provided the image below comparing the EVO-S (right) to a PIKO switch drive (left) and LGB switch drive (middle).
