Select your LOCO Sound in the drop down menu at the top of the page. We cover nearly all loco sounds. We know you'll be impressed with the quality of our sound recorded onto ESU Loksound decoders from the humble class 08 to the mighty 9F. Think you've heard something similar before? Now listen to what we, (and the many satisfied customers we have) consider to be the best.
Many, many hours have been spent recording and then perfecting these sounds in miniature; we hope you enjoy the results! Our decoders have been programmed by our engineer. The sound files have been carefully matched and edited in order to produce a seamless transition through the various stages of running. The result adds another dimension to your system whether it be a shunting yard, engine depot or a complete layout.
All the settings have been optimised to provide you with the best of all driving conditions and should not need adjustment. Sound decoder supplied with speaker Please note - You may need to change the speaker to fit your Loco. Function Sheet is supplied with each decoder About ESU Sound Deocder. The LokSound 5 is the most important member of the.
Due to the combination of the digital decoder and the sound module on one circuit board we achieve the smallest possible dimensions of 30 mm x 15.5 mm. Therefore it fits into almost any H0 or 0 gauge locomotive. LokSound 5 decoders are available with all popular interface types and are supplied with a sugar cube speaker (11 mm x 15 mm) and a sound enclosure.Like all products of the LokSound family the LokSound 5 is a true multi protocol decoder. It supports DCC as well as Motorola®, Selectrix® and M4. Of course it supports 14 through to 128 speed steps as well as 2 and 4 digit addresses in DCC format and up to 32 functions. Thanks to RailComPlus® the decoders register themselves fully automatically on suitable command stations. This decoder supports all DCC programming modes and thanks to RailCom® you may read out the CV values on the main, provided you have a command station supporting RailCom®.
There are utility registers for command stations that only facilitate programming of CVs ranging from 1 to 255. Motorola® users benefit from up to 28 speed steps for 255 addresses. Three additional Motorola® addresses facilitate triggering of 16 functions. An integral programming mode even allows programming with the good old Central Unit 6021.
The M4 protocol supports the automatic registration on mfx® compatible central units. The LokSound 5 decoder supports the Märklin® braking sections just as well as the ZIMO® HLU braking commands or the Lenz® ABC system. Braking with DCC brake generators or with DC is also possible. Furthermore the locomotive with a LokSound will come to a halt when a Selectrix® braking diode is switched into the circuit.The ABC push-pull feature enables the automatic commuting between two stations. The LokSound 5 decoder is also suitable for analogue DC and AC!
The LokSound 5 decoder can reproduce up to 10 channels simultaneously. Each channel offers up to 16 Bit / 31250 kHz and thus we have finally achieved hi-fi sound quality on your layout. For all practical purposes one cannot detect any difference to the original. A class D audio power amplifier with up to 3W output power feeds the speakers with a permitted impedance of 4 - 32 Ohms.The huge 128 MBit sound memory assures sufficient storage capacity. The volume of all individual sound fragments may be adjusted separately. The outstandingly flexible sound engine without a rigid flow chart facilitates a prototypical simulation of all conceivable rail vehicles. Three separately adjustable braking functions and two alternative load scenarios provide you with maximum control of your vehicles. We are quite aware that you want your locomotives to be as realistic as possible. Therefore we have packed many function outputs into it. Subject to the type of interface every LokSound 5 has at least 10 amplified outputs. The decoders with PluX22 or 21MTC interface have an additional 4 outputs for controlling servos or as logic outputs.
Of course, all important lighting functions are supported. The brightness of each output may be adjusted separately. The decoder supports the automatic push and pull movements - known as the coupler waltz - required for reliable operation of digital couplers such as the ones by ROCO® and Krois® as well as Telex® couplers. Motor control of the LokSound 5 has been further improved.A variable PWM pulse frequency ranging from 10 kHz to 50 kHz assures perfect silent operation, particularly for coreless motors. Thus the typical hum is a thing of the past. Load control can now be adjusted with up to 10 separate CVs and thus will manage even the most difficult cases.
The unique "Auto Tune" function facilitates the automatic calibration of the decoder to perfectly match the motor. The LokSound 5 decoder supplies up to 1.5A motor current, which is quite sufficient even for older motor types. Each decoder is fitted with sound to customer requirement. Because of this, there will be a 3-4 delay on all orders while our sound engineer fits the required sound.
