The LokPilot 5 DCC is the ‘twin brother’ of the LokPilot 5. The two share almost all characteristics, however, the LokPilot 5 DCC is a pure DCC decoder and cannot be used on analog AC systems. This lack of flexibility comes with a less expensive price.

LokPilot 5 decoders are offered with all common interfaces. 

Modes

The LokPilot 5 DCC is a ‘pure-bred’ DCC decoder. 14 to 128 speed steps are as natural as 2- and 4-digit addresses. Up to 32 functions can be triggered. Thanks to RailComPlus the decoders register automatically with a suitable DCC system like the ESU CabControl.

The decoder accepts all DCC programming modes and thanks to RailCom the CV values ​​can be read on the main track with RailCom equipped DCC systems. For command stations that only program the CVs from 1-255 auxiliary CV registers exist.

The LokPilot 5 DCC decoder recognizes the Marklin braking sections as well as the ZIMO HLU / ZACK Commands or the Lenz ABC system. Also braking with DCC brake modules or with DC voltages possible. It also stops with a Selectrix brake diode. An ABC automatic shuttle train enables automatic commuting between two train stations.

The LokPilot 5 DCC decoder can be used on analog DC trains. The top speed can be set separately.

The decoder switches between the operating modes fully automatically ‘on-the-fly’.

Features

We know that you want your locomotives to be as realistic as possible. Therefore, we have the LokPilot 5 DCC packed with function outputs. Depending on the interface version, each LokPilot offers 5 DCC Decoder at least 10 amplified function outputs with 250mA output current each. In the executions with PluX22 or 21MTC interface there are 4 outputs to control servos or Logic level outputs added. All-important lighting functions are available. The brightness of each output can be set separately. The decoder masters automatic pushing and pulling when uncoupling for ROCO, Krois and Telex couplings.

Motor control

The engine control of the LokPilot 5 DCC has been fundamentally improved again. A variably adjustable PWM clock frequency from 10kHz to 50kHz ensures super quiet operation, especially with bell-armature motors. Operation - The typical ‘hum’ is a thing of the past. The load control now has up to 10 CVs which can be adjusted for difficult cases. The unique ‘Autotune’ function enables the automatic calibration of the decoder to the motor. The LokPilot 5 DCC decoder delivers up to 1.5A of motor current. Enough juice even for older motors.

Operational safety

On request, a PowerPack can be fitted to the LokPilot 5 DCC to bridge dirty rail sections.

Protection

Of course, all function outputs as well as the motor output are protected against overload. We want you to enjoy the features of our decoders for as long as possible!

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.
