2019 is a very special year for ESU. Just about 20 years ago, during the Nürnberg toy fair back in 1999, the first LokSound Decoder was introduced to the Public. For the first time ever, a multi-protocol digital decoder with an integrated,  flash memory based, user rewriteable sound module was born. Right from the start, we also had  the LokProgrammer that offers a comfortable, hassle free, PC based programming solution for ESU decoders. Over the years, many things have happened and our company has grown from a startup to an important company within the model train industry. We would like to thank you for all your support and loyalty since from the beginning. Although the product range has extended very much since our very beginning, we have never forgotten about our very first and still most important product: LokSound Digital Sound Decoders! For that reason, now in our 20th year, we are happy to announce the 5th Generation of these groundbreaking decoders!

Our 5th generation of LokSound has been developed from scratch. Thanks to a high performance, 32-Bit micro controller, we have been able to improve all key features again: LokSound 5 decoders will support up to 10 simultaneous sound channels. Each channel will reach HiFi-Quality level thanks to 16 Bit Resolution and 31250 Hz sample frequency. LokSound 5 decoders will bring your model trains to the next level and sound almost like the original. A 128 Mbit flash memory chip allows for enough capacity to hold the sounds

LokSound 5 decoders offer an advanced B-EMF load control that runs with up to 50 kHz base frequency and is optimized for low-noise operation. This is important for coreless motors such as Faulhaber or Maxon and also for Large scale locomotives.  Every LokSound 5 decoder comes with plenty of function outputs and can control servos or SUSI-modules if needed. Even better, every LokSound 5 decoder could also be used with Analog DC (even the small N scale decoder!).

Based on the command station, up to 32 function buttons are supported that can be mapped to any output due to our superior ESU function mapping. Three brake functions and a two-stage load simulation will let you enjoy your model railroad even more. Compatibility with is ensured with our LokSound 4 and Select product lines as well as we have continued to incorporate our “Full Throttle” features, like Drive Hold! Even more impressive is that all the V4 sound files already created (Over 100!) will be automatically converted in a new version of our famous LokProgrammer software so on Day 1 we will have a full library of sounds to be able to choose from!

Please note:

LokSound V5 DCC In the North American and Australian Market will be providing DCC ONLY protocol called the V5 DCC. This will only speak the DCC Language (along with Analog DC of course)
LokSound V5 For Marklin Users, and those needing more options, we will also be providing a Multi-protocol V5 version. This will speak, DCC, Motorola, Selectrix, and MFX/M4 (along with Analog AC/DC of course)



LokSound 5 L is intended for use in all applications where the required power exceeds the limits of LokSound 5.  Ideally these are 0 gauge vehicles and also smaller 1 gauge locomotives. Despite its compact dimensions of only 50.8 mm x 25.4 mm x 14 mm it is equipped with a dual speaker output and integral PowerPack.

The LokSound 5 is equipped with a multi-pin connector and is supplied ex works with an adapter board featuring solder pads. 

Operating modes

Like all products of the LokSound family the LokSound 5 L 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 and 255 addresses. Three additional Motorola® addresses facilitate triggering of 16 functions. An integral programming mode even allows programming with the good old Control Unit 6021.

The M4 protocol supports the automatic registration on mfx® compatible central units.

The LokSound 5 L decoder supports 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 5 L will come to a halt when a Selectrix® braking diode is switched into the circuit. The ABC push-pull feature enables automatic commuting between two stations.

The LokSound 5 L decoder is also suitable for analogue DC and AC layouts.

Sound

The LokSound 5 L 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 dual class D audio power amplifier with up to 2-times 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.

Functions

Every LokSound 5 L decoder has 11 amplified function outputs. On top of that there are another 6 logic outputs, which can, if so desired, control two RC servos or SUSI extension modules. 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 the reliable function of digital couplers such as the ones by ROCO® and Krois® as well as Telex® couplers. 4 sensor inputs may be employed in order to trigger functions.

Motor control

Motor control of the LokSound 5 L 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 L decoder supplies ample current for the motor, namely up to 3.0 A.
