The LokPilot 5 Fx micro and its "twin" LokPilot 5 Fx micro DCC are versatile decoders with a Next18 interface on a footprint of 13.0mm x 9.2mm. They are used in all vehicles of nominal sizes N to H0, which do not have an engine output, but should still be able to switch light effects.

  • Modes

The LokPilot 5 Fx micro is a multi-protocol decoder. It masters the DCC data format as well as Motorola® and Selectrix®. In DCC format, 14 to 128 driving steps are as self-evident as 2- and 4-digit addresses and up to 32 functions. With the help of RailComPlus® technology, the de-coders register fully automatically at a suitable digital center.It masters all DCC programming modes and can be both driven and programmed with compatible digital centres: Thanks to RailCom®, it is possible to read out the CV values on the main track with suitable control panels. Auxiliary registers exist for control panels that can only program the CVs from 1-255.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 micro DCC speaks "only" the DCC protocol, but can also be automatically registered with RailComPlus at appropriate control centers.The Lok Pilot 5 Fx micro decoder detects the Märklin® brake distances as well as ZIMO HLU / ZACK 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 pen train allows 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 synchronize control cars and motor cars.The LokPilot 5 Fx micro decoder can be used on analog DC and ac current webs; the LokPilot 5 Fx micro DCC on analog DC webs.The decoder switches "on-the-fly" fully automatically between operating modes. Most of the time, nothing needs to be adjusted.

  • Functions

The LokPilot 5 Fx micro or LokPilot 5 Fx micro DCC has been equipped with an astonishing number of function outputs. Thus, 6 reinforced function outputs with 180mA output current each as well as two logic level outputs for servos or Susi are available. The brightness of each output can be set separately.

  • Interaction

LokPilot 5 Fx micro are 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 micro decoder and the control car with a LokPilot 5 Fx micro. Provided the same address, both are absolutely identical. The identical arrangement of the CVs facilitates the tuning of the two decoders.

  • Operational reliability

On request, a Power Pack can be connected to the Lok Pilot 5 Fx micro and Lok Pilot 5 Fx micro DCC for overbreeding dirty rail sections.
