Class 071 Locomotive DCC Decoder
by Murphy Models & ESU
LokPilot DCC Decoder (No Sound)
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.
