While our LokPilot V4.0
decoder without doubt meets the most extravagant requirements even of
the most sophisticated experts, many modellers are looking for a robust,
high quality DCC decoder for their standard requirements, which should
also be easily affordable.
You may stop searching right now: our new
LokPilot Standard has been developed from scratch with the objective to
provide an up-to-date decoder that meets most of the required
functionality on the one hand while going easy on your wallet.
supply the LokPilot Standard in three versions: besides the version with
the 8-pole NEM interface and the one with the 21MTC plug, the decoder
will also be supplied as a particularly compact type with the PluX12
interface, if required. Thus the LokPilot Standard is not only suitable
for H0 vehicles but also for locomotives in TT or N gauge.
modern technology globally available has been built into the LokPilot
Standard. Based on a 32 Bit CPU the LokPilot Standard is convincing due
to its newly developed, excellent load control with high tact frequency
and very good low speed characteristics, sensible configuration and
outstanding value for money.
The LokPilot Standard is a first class DCC decoder.
14 - 128 speed steps simply go without saying as well as 2 and 4 digit
addresses. Thanks to RailComPlus® the decoder automatically registers
at a suitable command station (e.g. ECoS). It supports all DCC
programming modes and can be operated and programmed with all DCC
compatible digital command stations: thanks to RailCom® one can also
read out CV values on the main with a suitable command station.
Programming is particularly comfortable with the ESU LokProgrammer where
see all parameters in plain text on your PC monitor.
The output stage of the LokPilot Standard decoder
generates 0.9A continuous current and easily handles all commonly
available DC motors as well as coreless motors; regardless if the motor
is by ROCO®, Fleischmann®, Tillig®, Piko®, Brawa®, Bemo®, Faulhaber® or
Maxon®. Load control with 20 kHz PWM frequency assures quiet running and
lets your locomotives crawl slowly over your layout if you wish them to
do so. Load control can be adapted optimally to the particular type of
motor by means of three CVs. Due to the simulated inertia the locomotive
will not jerk, not even in 14 speed step mode.
The LokPilot Standard can also be used on analogue
DC layouts. Therefore the operational area of your locomotives may well
be extended to “non-digital” layouts without any problems.
The LokPilot Standard decoder has four function
outputs. The decoder with the 21MTC plug has two additional outputs
without end stage, which can be utilised for controlling lighting and
other functions in conjunction with a suitable adapter board (e.g. ESU
51968). All important lighting functions (e.g. blinking lights, Mars
light, flashing light) are available and can be set just like the
brightness of each output. The integral shunting mode assists you in
delicate shunting manoeuvres in the yard, which is also enhanced by the
option to turn off acceleration and deceleration with a function button.
Thanks to a simplified method for “function mapping” similar to the
method described in the NMRA standard all function outputs can easily
be assigned to any function button (F0 to F20) according to your
Of course, all function outputs as well as the motor
output are protected against overload. We want you to enjoy the
features of our decoders for as long as possible!
The LokPilot Standard can be updated and, if
necessary, new operating software can be uploaded with the aid of the
ESU LokProgrammer. Thus your decoder always stays up to date, even after
