Description & specifications

LokSound 5 Fx DCC/MM/SX/M4 »empty decoder«, 21MTC NEM660, with speaker 11x15mm, gauge: H0, 0

The LokSound 5 Fx is a special feature within the LokSound family: It has no motor output and is specially designed for use in control cars or power cars that require a sound but do not have a model drive themselves. By omitting the motor part, it can still offer all the sound features of the other LokSound 5 members at a size of only 21.5mm x 15.5mm.

operating modes
Like all family members, the LokSound 5 Fx is a real multi-protocol decoder. It can handle the DCC data format just like Motorola®, Selectrix® and M4. In the DCC format, 14 to 128 speed steps are just as natural as 2 and 4-digit addresses and up to 32 functions. With the help of RailComPlus technology, the decoders register fully automatically with a suitable digital center.

It masters all DCC programming modes and can be both driven and programmed with compatible digital command stations: Thanks to RailCom®, the CV values on the main track can be read out with suitable command stations. Auxiliary registers exist for command stations that can only program CVs from 1-255.

Motorola® users benefit from up to 28 speed steps with 255 addresses. Three additional Motorola® addresses enable 16 functions to be triggered. A built-in programming mode also makes reprogramming possible with the venerable Control Unit 6021.

The M4 protocol permits automatic registration with mfx®-compatible control panels. The LokSound 5 Fx decoder recognizes the Märklin® braking sections as well as ZIMO® HLU braking commands or the Lenz® ABC system. "Braking" with DCC braking modules or with DC voltage is also possible. In addition, it also stops with a Selectrix® brake diode. An ABC automatic shuttle train enables automatic commuting between two stations.

The LokSound 5 decoder can be used on analogue DC and AC railways.

The decoder switches between the operating modes fully automatically "on-the-fly". Usually nothing has to be adjusted.

The LokSound 5 Fx decoder can play back up to 12 channels simultaneously. Each channel can be resolved with up to 16 bits / 31250 kHz and offers hi-fi quality on your system. There is practically no difference to the original that can be heard. A Class-D audio power amplifier with an output power of up to 3W controls the loudspeakers, which can have an impedance between 4 ohms and 32 ohms. A 128 Mbit sound memory ensures sufficient capacity.

All individual sounds can be individually adjusted in volume. The super-flexible sound engine without a rigid schedule allows for the prototypical simulation of all conceivable rail vehicles. Therefore we have equipped the LokSound 5 Fx with 6 amplified function outputs. In the version with 21MTC interface, there are 6 additional outputs for controlling servos or logic level outputs. All important light functions are available. The brightness of each output can be adjusted separately.

engine control
Although the LokSound 5 Fx itself does not have a motor output, it still "simulates" one. This serves to synchronize with the motor vehicle, where ideally a "full" LokSound 5 decoder does its job. In the train set, this ensures that the brakes squeal at the same time or that the lamps switch the direction of travel at the same time.
