The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct has been specially developed for installation in Spur N vehicles of the Atlas and Intermountain brands: it can be inserted directly instead of the analog board installed there as standard. However, the decoder can also be used for similar models from other manufacturers at your own discretion.
The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct with its dimensions of 66.0mm x 8.2mm is a pure DCC decoder and comes without a loudspeaker.
The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct 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 automatically 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 Decoder detects the Marklin 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 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.
The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct 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 your system. There is virtually no difference to the original audible anymore. A Class-D audio output stage with up to 3W output power controls the speakers, which 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.
The LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct has 10 directly soldered LEDs. Two of them are intended for front and rear head lighting, two more are connected to the aux3 and AUX4 outputs to switch e.g. number boards. A further 6 LEDs on the bottom are intended for ditch lights, but can also be used for other lighting purposes on request. All important lighting functions are available. The brightness of each output can be set separately.
The motor control of the LokSound 5 micro DCC Direct has a variable PWM clock frequency from 10kHz to 50kHz, which ensures super-quiet operation, especially for bell anchor motors - the hitherto 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 Decoder delivers up to 0.9A motor power.
