The LokPilot 5 is
the most important representative of the LokPilot family and is suitable
for almost all questions in locomotives of gauge H0 and 0.
LokPilot 5 decoders are offered with all common interfaces.
The LokPilot 5 is a real multi-protocol decoder. He
masters the data format DCC as well as Motorola®, Selectrix® and M4. In
DCC format, 14 to 128 speed steps are as natural as 2 and 4-digit
addresses and up to 32 functions. Thanks to RailComPlus®, the decoders
log on to a suitable digital center fully automatically.
It masters all DCC programming modes and, thanks to
RailCom®, the CV values on the main track can be read out with
suitable control centers. Auxiliary registers exist for control centers
that can only program CVs from 1-255.
Motorola® users benefit from up to 28 speed steps
with 255 addresses. Three additional Motorola® addresses enable the
activation of 16 functions. A built-in programming mode also makes
reprogramming possible with the venerable Control Unit 6021.
The M4 protocol enables automatic registration at
mfx®-compatible control centers. All 32 possible function keys are
The LokPilot 5 decoder recognizes the Märklin®
braking distances as well as ZIMO® HLU / ZACK commands or the Lenz® ABC
system. Braking with DCC brake modules or with DC voltage is also
possible. It also stops with a Selectrix® brake diode. An ABC automatic
shuttle train enables automatic commuting between two stations.
The LokPilot 5 decoder can be used on analog DC and
AC railways.The decoder switches between the operating modes fully
automatically "on-the-fly". Usually nothing needs to be set.
We know that you want your locomotives to be as
realistic as possible. Therefore, we packed the LokPilot 5 with function
outputs. Depending on the interface version, each LokPilot 5 decoder
offers at least 10 amplified function outputs with 250mA output current
each. In the versions with PluX22 or 21MTC interface, 4 outputs are
added to control servos or logic level outputs. All important lighting
functions are available. The brightness of each output can be set
separately. The decoder masters the automatic pressing and detaching
when uncoupling for ROCO®, Krois® and Telex® couplings.
The engine control of the LokPilot 5 has been
fundamentally improved again. A variably adjustable PWM clock frequency
from 10kHz to 50kHz ensures super quiet operation, especially with
bell-armature motors - the typical "hum" is a thing of the past. The
load control can now be adapted to difficult cases with up to 10 CVs.
The unique "Autotune" function enables the decoder to be automatically
calibrated to the motor. With up to 1.5A motor current, the LokPilot 5
decoder provides enough juice even for older motors.
On request, a PowerPack can be connected to the LokPilot 5 to bridge dirty rail sections.
Of course, all function outputs and the motor output
are protected against overload. We want you to enjoy your decoder for
as long as possible.
