The LokSound 5 XL decoder is really a big "piece". It must be it, because it is intended for use in garden railways or track 1 locomotives. The integrated PowerPack, adapted to the power, ensures safe operation, even on dirty tracks.
The LokSound 5 XL is 51 mm x 40 mm in size and is supplied by us in two variants: in addition to a variant with robust screw terminals for retrofitting, even with older models, there is a version with pen caps. This decoder fits all locomotives in which an older LokSound XL decoder was installed.
Like all family members, the LokSound 5 XL is a true multi-protocol decoder. He masters the DCC data format as well as Motorola®, Selectrix® and M4. In the DCC format, 14 to 128 speed steps are as natural as 2 and 4-digit addresses and up to 32 functions. Thanks to RailComPlus®, the decoders log in fully automatically to a suitable digital exchange. The LGB® chain controller can correctly activate the function keys with older LGB® controllers.
The decoder controls all DCC programming modes and, thanks to RailCom®, the CV values on the main track can be read out with suitable control panels. There are auxiliary registers for panels that can only program CVs of 1-255.
Motorola® users benefit from a maximum of 28 speed steps with 255 addresses. Three additional Motorola® addresses enable the activation of 16 functions. A built-in programming mode also makes reprogramming possible with the venerable control unit 6021.
The M4 protocol allows automatic registration with mfx® compatible panels.
The LokSound 5 XL decoder recognizes the Märklin® braking distances as well as ZIMO® HLU braking commands or the Lenz® ABC system. Braking with DCC brake modules or DC voltage is also possible. It also stops with a Selectrix® brake diode. An automatic ABC shuttle makes automatic commuting between two stations possible.
The LokSound 5 XL decoder can be used on analog DC and AC tracks.
The LokSound 5 XL decoder can play up to 10 channels simultaneously. Each channel can be resolved with a maximum of 16 bit / 31250 kHz and finally offers hi-fi quality on your system. There is virtually no difference with the original that is more audible. A dual Class-D audio amplifier with a maximum of twice 6W output feeds the speakers, which can have an impedance of 4 ohms and 32 ohms. The volume can be adjusted separately with two optional potentiometers. The enormous 128 Mbit sound storage offers sufficient capacity.
All individual sounds can be adjusted individually in volume. The super-flexible Soundengine without a rigid scheme makes the prototypical simulation of all conceivable rail vehicles possible. Three separately adjustable braking functions and two alternative loading scenarios give you maximum control over your vehicles.
Each LokSound 5 XL decoder is equipped with 12 amplified function outputs. In addition, there are 7 extra outputs for the logic level that can also control (4) RC servos and SUSI expansion modules on request. All important lighting functions are available. The brightness of each output can be adjusted separately. The decoder takes care of switching disconnection on and off for ROCO®, Krois® and Telex® couplings. 3 sensor inputs can activate functions on request.
The engine management of the LokSound 5 XL has again been fundamentally improved. A variably adjustable PWM clock frequency from 10 kHz to 50 kHz ensures super quiet operation, especially in clock anchor motors - the typical "humming" is a thing of the past. The tax scheme can now be adapted to difficult cases with a maximum of 10 CVs. The unique "Autotune" function enables automatic decompression from the decoder to the motor. The LokSound 5 XL decoder offers up to 5.0A (continuous current: 4.0A) motor current enough power for PIKO® G-Spur locomotives, as well as twin-engine locomotives with Buhler® or Mabuchi® engines.
