ESU 59229 LokPilot 5 Fx DCC Non Sound Decoder - 21 Pin

The LokPilot 5 Fx DCC is a “purebred” DCC decoder.


The LokPilot 5 Fx DCC is a function decoder without motor output and is therefore perfect for installation in control cars or function models. It shares the basic characteristics of all other LokPilot 5 decoders.


The LokPilot 5 Fx DCC decoder has a DCC & DC “Dual Mode” Operation, 2 or 4 Digit DCC Addressing, 14-28-128 Speed Steps, Locomotive Consisting and up to 32 Functions. It supports all DCC programming modes including POM (Programming on the Main) and also supports RailComPlus® that allows the decoders to register themselves automatically on suitable command stations. 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 5 DCC decoder recognises the Märklin® braking sections 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. Although this decoder does not have an engine output, this is also important for a function decoder in order to be able to synchronise control cars and motor cars.


We know that you want your locomotives to be as realistic as possible. Therefore, the LokPilot 5 Fx DCC is packed with function outputs. Depending on the interface version, each LokPilot offers at least 10 amplified function outputs with 250mA output current each. With the 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 LokPilot 5 Fx DCC is designed for interaction with the LokSound 5 and the LokPilot 5 decoders: for example, it is possible to equip the locomotive of a multiple unit with a LokSound 5 decoder and the control car with a LokPilot 5 Fx DCC. Provided the same address, both behave absolutely identically. The identical arrangement of the CVs facilitates the tuning of the two decoders.


A Stay Alive/PowerPack can be fitted to the LokPilot 5 Fx DCC decoder.


Of course, the motor output and the function outputs are against overload protected. We want you to enjoy your decoder for as long as possible.
