With its unique design the LokSound 5 Direct DCC can easily replace boards that provide poor motor control, low volume, or generally inferior sound. Not only will the decoder work fine with most factory installed speakers, but it will sound even better with our new 11x15mm“sugar cube” speaker and sound enclosure kits.

Modes

The LokSound 5 DCC is made for the North American and Australian markets. It is a pure DCC Decoder, which supports RailComPlus and can also be used on DC layouts. With its size of 0.67x2.72inch/17x69mmThe V5 Direct DCC will fit in almost all of the popular North American and Australian HO manufacturers locomotives.

In the DCC format, 14 to 128 speed steps are as natural as 2- and4-digit addresses and up to 32 functions. Thanks to RailComPlus®, the decoders log on fully automatically to a suitable digital central unit.

It masters all DCC programming modes and, thanks to RailCom®, theCV values on the main track can be read out with suitable control panels. For panels that can only program the CVs from 1-255, there are auxiliary registers.

Braking with DCC brake modules or DC voltage is also possible. Aautomatic ABC shuttle allows automatic commuting between two stations.

The LokSound 5 decoder can also be used on analog DC tracks.

Sound

The LokSound 5 decoder can play up to 10 channels simultaneously.Each channel can be resolved with up to 16 bit / 31250 kHz and finallyoffers hi-fi quality on your system. There is virtually no difference tothe original more audible. A Class D audio power amplifier with upto 3W output powers the speakers, which may have between 4 ohmsand 32 ohms impedance. The huge 128 Mbit sound storage providesenough capacity.

All individual sounds can be individually adjusted in volume. The super flexible Sound engine without rigid schedule allows the prototypical simulation of all imaginable locomotives. Three separately adjustable braking functions and two alternative load scenarios give you the maximum control over your Locos.

Features

We know that you want your locomotives to be as realistic as possible.That’s why we packed the LokSound 5 with function outputs.Depending on the interface version, each LokSound 5 decoder offers at least 8 amplified function outputs. Of course tons of lighting effects are also available. The brightness of each output can be set separately.The decoder handles the automatic on and off during uncoupling forROCO®, Krois® and Telex® couplings. In order to keep compatible with the thousands of LokSound Selects and LokSound V4 decoders already on the market we made sure to add many of the most popular features of that Generation! This Includes the Full Throttle features, including the Famous Drive Hold!

Motor Control

The engine control of the LokSound 5 has again been fundamentally improved. A variably adjustable PWM clock frequency of 10kHzto 50kHz ensures especially in bell armature motors for a super quiet operation - The typical “humming” 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 allows the automatic decompression ofthe decoder to the motor.

The LokSound 5 decoder delivers up to 1.5A motor current enoughj uice for older engines.


DC ANALOG SYSTEMS
DC Analog is a control system standard to most starter sets which allows the user to control the track (and not the locomotive). This means that two or more trains on the same track will move, speed up, slow down and stop at the same time.
DCC DIGTIAL SYSTEMS
DCC Digital stands for ‘Digital Command Control’. DCC Digital systems allow individual locomotives and accessories to be independently controlled from the controller. Other functions, such as lighting and sound (if equipped), can also be independently controlled.

DCC READY (Standard DC)

This means the locomotive, train set or equipment is fitted with a socket that is ready to accept a DCC decoder.  The most common and readily available types of decoders here in the US are: 6 pin, 8 pin, next 18, and 21 pin.  Prior to buying a  decoder for your locomotive, verify which of the previous you will need.  This information is usually found on the manufacturers site or instruction booklet.

The locomotive requires a DCC decoder to be fitted to the socket in order for it to work on a DCC controlled layout. It can however still be used on the conventional DC (analog) layout. 

 

DCC EQUIPPED

This indicates that the locomotive, train set or equipment is fitted with a decoder that has been pre-installed at the factory. 

This means that the locomotive is ready to run and operate on a DCC controlled layout and can now be called up by request from a Digital Controller. Additional features, such as lighting and sound (if equipped), can also be independently controlled (only if the locomotive is fitted with these accessories).

Some DCC equipped locomotives can also be run on DC layouts (see note below). Some accessories may continue to work automatically, such as lighting and sound (if equipped), however, the user will not have independent control of these under DC operation. It is important to note that manufacturer's decoders who support sound playback on DC operation will only provide a selection of sounds when the locomotive is detected to be moving or stopping (such as chuffing, coasting and braking sounds).  

*Some manufacturers may issue a warning that they do not recommend a DCC fitted locomotive to be operated on a DC (analog) layout, and may void any warranties. Check your locomotive's manual for more information. Not all sound decoders enable sound playback on DC operation, and this information is provided with your decoder manual.
