LokSound Decoder:5 Sound & DCC Control Decoder
The LokSound 5 Sound and DCC Control Decoder by ESU is a great choice for HO, S and O Scale locomotive models. LokSound 5 is a true multi-protocol decoder. It supports DCC as well as Motorola, Selectrix and M4 systems. It offers a choice of 14 through to 128 speed steps, two and four-digit addresses in DCC format and up to 32 functions. On RailComPlus(R) systems the decoders register themselves automatically on command stations equipped with the feature.
This decoder supports all DCC programming modes and with RailCom you can read CV values on the main. Utility registers for command stations facilitate programming of CVs 1 to 255.
Motorola users can use up to 28 speed steps for 255 addresses as well as three addresses for 16 additional functions. The decoder can even be programmed on the old Marklin Central Unit 6021. The M4 protocol supports the automatic registration on Marklin mfx-compatible central units. The decoder has 10 amplified outputs, all of which can be adjusted separately, as well as support for digital couplers.
This decoder supports the Marklin, Zimo HLU and Lenz ABC braking commands. Braking with DCC brake generators or with DC is also possible.
The LokSound 5 decoder can be used on analogue DC and AC layouts.
The LokSound 5 decoder can reproduce up to 10 channels simultaneously. Each channel offers up to 16 Bit - 31250 kHz for true hi-fi sound quality. A class D audio power amplifier with up to 3W output power feeds speakers (sold separately) with a permitted impedance of 4 to 32 Ohms. A huge 128 MBit sound memory assures sufficient storage capacity. In addition, the volume of all individual sounds may be adjusted separately.
Motor control features a variable PWM pulse frequency ranging from 10 kHz to 50 kHz assures perfect silent operation, particularly for coreless motors. Load control is adjustable with up to 10 CVs and the "Auto Tune" f
