ESU V4.0 LokPilot Non Sound decoder programmed with the DCC Solutions Custom Project optimised to suit your locomotive's running abilities.
Decoders Available: LokPilot V4.0 DCC 21 Pin Interface
Suitable for Auscision, On Track Models, Southern Rail Models
The LokPilot V4.0 DCC Decoder has achieved an excellent reputation among model railroaders all around the world. The new LokPilot V4.0 DCC is much better in many respects based on the LokPilot family’s high standard performance.
The LokPilot V4.0 DCC decoder is a motor decoder with fully functioned light outputs. that you can install it in nearly every loco in H0 and 0 and so be able to control driving and lights.
LokPilot V4.0 DCC decoders are offered with all established plugs, including the 6-pin, 8-pin, which can be used in hardwired applications, and the wireless version 21 pin MTC interface, suitable for many new release Australian Locomotives.
The most robust and reliable decoder on the market that offers the user trouble free operations with all function outputs and the motor current output overload protected. ESU wants you to have fun with your decoder for as long as possible! A fully programmable decoder that supports all DCC programming modes including POM (Programming on the Main). Programming configuration variables (CV’s) is especially simple. It also allows updating the internal firmware making it future-proof. This means, the internal software on the decoder‘s memory can be replaced by new versions supplied by ESU when new features, improvements or bug fixes are released.
The LokPilot V4.0 DCC can be used in combination with all DCC systems on the market. It can also be used for DC operation and recognises operational modes automatically "on-the-fly". You can assign the decoders to 2-digit, 3-digit (1-127) or 4-digit (1-9999) addresses as well as a consist address.
From a LokPilot decoder, you rightly expect an excellent motor management. With the LokPilot V4.0 DCC, ESU introduces the once more improved fifth generation of load control. The standard frequency is adjusted adaptively to the speed with a basic frequency of 40 kHz. The result is an even better slow driving performance, ideal for older 3-pole or coreless motors. With this ESU sets a new standard and nowhere else will you find better motor control. Here at DCC Solutions we have tweaked and programmed the decoder to provide super slow speeds perfect for those who like their locos to move off slowly or like to operate shunting. So many motors will run even better and softer with the LokPilot V4.0 DCC
And of course, let’s no forget the 4 function outputs with the possibility of using constant current of a huge 250mA. They are separately dimmable and can be allocated individually to different light functions such as flashing light, firebox flicker, strobe – and double strobe, Ditch Light etc. Beyond that, the 21MTC connector version has two logical outputs which can be made to power LEDs using the DCC Solutions Power Amplifer transforming this decoder into 6 light functions.The LED Mode ensures that the light effects are set correctly when using LEDs.
Let us know the loco this decoder is intended for and will pre-program the motor settings and functions to suit that loco so that is runs the way it should.
