The LokPilot 5 micro DCC is the "twin" of the LokPilot 5 micro. With just 8.0mm x 7.0mm and a thickness of only 2.4mm (on the capacitor: 2.9mm), just so small that it can also be accommodated in very small locomotives of nominal sizes Z, N or TT, it is a pure DCC Decoder. This lack of flexibility is rewarded with a lower price.
LokPilot 5 micro DCC decoders are available with all common interfaces. The variants with Next18 or PluX16 interface are a bit larger with a base area of 13.0mm x 9.2mm, but have 2 additional function outputs.
The LokPilot 5 micro DCC is a "pure-bred" DCC decoder. 14 to 128 speed steps are as natural as 2- and 4-digit addresses. Up to 32 functions can be triggered. Thanks to Rail¬ComPlus®, the decoders log on to a suitable DCC System fully automatically.
It masters all DCC programming command stations. Auxiliary registers exist for DCC systems that can only program CVs from 1-255.
The LokPilot 5 micro DCC decoder recognizes 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.
The LokPilot 5 DCC decoder can be used on analog DC trains. The maximum speed can be set separately.
The decoder switches between the operating modes fully automatically "on-the-fly".
We know that you want your locomotives to be as realistic as possible. Therefore we have the LokPilot 5 micro DCC equipped with an amazing number of function outputs. The variants with 6-pin or 8-pin Wiring harnesses offer 4 amplified function outputs, each with 180mA output current and two logic level outputs. The versions with Next18 or PluX16 interface have a total of 6 amplified outputs and two logic level outputs available. All important lighting effects are available. The brightness of each output can be adjusted separately. The decoder masters automatic pushing and pulling when uncoupling for ROCO®, Krois® and Telex® couplings.
The motor control of the LokPilot 5 micro DCC has been fundamentally improved again. A variable adjustable PWM clock frequency from 10kHz to 50kHz ensures super quiet operation, especially with bell-armature motors- The typical “hum” is a thing of the past. The load control now has up to 10 CVs which can be adjusted for difficult cases. The unique "Autotune" function enables the automatic calibration of the decoder to the motor. The LokPilot 5 DCC decoder delivers up to .75A of motor current. Enough juice for most motors.
A PowerPack to bypass dirty track can be fitted to the LokPilot 5 micro.
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.
