The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA has been specially developed for installation in track N vehicles of the Kato USA brand: Most diesel locomotives of this manufacturer are installed in the American model of these decoders instead of the analog board installed as standard. Finally, these models can also be easily retrofitted with a LokSound decoder.

The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA with its dimensions of 60.0mm x 10.1mm is a pure DCC decoder and comes without a loudspeaker.

Modes

The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA is a "pure-bred" DCC decoder. 14 to 128 driving steps are as self-evident as 2- and 4-digit addresses. Up to 32 functions can be triggered. Thanks to RailComPlus®, the decoders log in fully to a suitable digital center.It masters all DCC programming modes and thanks to RailCom® the CV values can be read out on the main track with suitable control panels. Auxiliary registers exist for control panels that can only program the CVs from 1-255.

The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA Decoder detects the Märklin® brake distances as well as ZIMO® HLU / ZACK commands or the Lenz® ABC system. Braking with DCC brake blocks or dc voltage is also possible. In addition, it also stops with a Selectrix® brake diode. An AUTOMATIC ABC commuter train allows automatic commuting between two stations.

The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA can be used on analog DC webs.The decoder switches "on-the-fly" fully automatically between operating modes. Most of the time, nothing needs to be adjusted.

Sound

The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA Decoder can play up to 12 channels simultaneously. Each channel can be resolved with up to 16 bits / 31250 kHz and offers hi-fi quality on its system. There is virtually no difference to the original audible anymore. A Class-D audio output with up to 3W output power controls the speakers, which can have between 4 ohms and 32 ohms impedance. A 128 Mbit sound memory provides enough capacity.

All individual noises can be adjusted individually in the volume. The super-flexible sound engine without a rigid schedule allows the exemplary simulation of all conceivable rail tracks.

Functions

Despite its compact dimensions, the LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA is equipped with an enormen number of function outputs. Two directly soldered SMD LEDs are designed for front and rear front and rear head lighting. For older models, two wired LEDs can alternatively be soldered and switched separately. Three further reinforced function outputs are also available. All important lighting functions are available. The brightness of each output can be set separately.

Motor

The motor control of the LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA has a variable PWM clock frequency from 10kHz to 50kHz, which ensures super-quiet operation, especially for bell anchor motors – the typical "hum" is a thing of the past. The load control can be adapted to difficult cases with up to 10 CVs. The unique "Autotune" function allows the decoder to be automatically measured against the motor. The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA decoder delivers up to 0.9A motor power.

Operational Reliability

A PowerPack can be connected to the LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct Kato USA on request to bridge dirty rail sections.

Protection

Of course, the outputs are protected against overload. We want you to enjoy your decoder for as long as possible.

  • 12 sound channels can be played simultaneously
  • Ex works with 11x15 mm "sugar cube" loudspeakers with customizable sound capsule set
  • PowerPack storage capacitor optionally connectable
  • Dimensions: 60.0 mm x 10.1 mm, height depends on interface
Interface
  • N Scale Drop-In for Kato USA Diesel frames using 928043A and 928053 DC circuit boards including:
    • N ES44AC
    • N AC4400
    • N C44-9W
    • N SD70MAC
    • N SD70 original version
    • N SD40/45 DCC friendly version
    • N SD40-2 early, snoot
    • N SD70ACe
    • N SD70M revised
    • N SD40-2 mid production
    • N U30C/C30-7 revised DCC version
There are many Kato models this board will fit.  We are aware of the two specific models noted previously.  The first is an older style and uses standard 3.5mm round LED’s.  This board type has been around since Kato released the C44-9W in the late 1990's.  It is still in current usage today.  The second is a later revision (possibly first used on the SD40-2 mid production) with surface mount LED’s.  
 
This list is not intended to be all-inclusive nor without exception.  Please review your project carefully to validate the application.
