The LokPilot 5 Fx is a function decoder without motor output and therefore perfect for installation in control cars or function models. Because it talks DCC with RailCom® as well as Motorola® and Selectrix, it can be used with all common digital centers. He shares his flexible radio-onskey assignment and the manifold lighting effects with the other LokPilot 5 decoders from ESU.
The LokPilot 5 Fx is supplied in three variants: In addition to the “classic” version with 8-pin NEM 652 harness, a variant for the 21MTC interface and with PluX22 interface is also available.
The LokPilot 5 Fx is a multi-protocol decoder. It masters the DCC data format as well as Motorola® and Selectrix®. In DCC format, 14-128 driving steps are as natural as 2- and 4-digit addresses. Up to 28 functions can be triggered. Thanks to RailComPlus® the de-coders register fully automatically at a suitable digital center (e.g. ECoS).
It masters all DCC programming modes and can be used and programmed with all DCC-compatible digital centers: RailCom® also allows the CV values to be read out on the main track with suitable control panels. Auxiliary registers exist for control panels that can only program the CVs from 1-255 (e.g. ROCO® multi-mouse).
Motorola® users benefit from up to 28 driving steps at 255 addresses. Three additional Motorola® addresses enable the triggering of 16 functions. A built-in programming mode also makes reprogramming possible with the venerable Control Unit 6021.
The LokPilot 5 Fx Decoder erkennd ie Märklin®-Bremsstrecke n ee eensnso wie ZIMO®-HLU/ZACK-Brems- commands or the Lenz® ABC system. Braking with DCC brake blocks or with equal voltage is also possible. In addition, it also “stops” with a Selectrix® brake diode.An AUTOMATIC ABC commuter train allows automatic commuting between two stations. Although this decoder does not have an engine output, this is also important with a function decoder in order to be able to synchronize control cars and motor cars.
The LokPilot 5 FX decoder can be used on analog DC and AC webs.The decoder switches “on-the-fly” fully automatically between operating modes. Most of the time, nothing needs to be adjusted.
The LokPilot 5 Fx has been equipped with an astonishing number of function outputs. Depending on the cutting version, each LokPilot 5 Fx decoder offers at least 10 reinforced function outputs with 250mA output current each. In the versions with PluX22 or 21MTC interface, 4 outputs for controlling servos or logic level outputs are added. All important lighting functions are available. The brightness of each output can be set separately.
