decoders help many H0 model railroaders to operate their locos with
realistic sounds, something that friends of the smaller N and TT gauges
don´t need to do without. We even once more reduced the new LokSound
micro V4.0 decoder´s dimensions compared to its forerunner. With a size
of only 25mm x 10.6mm x 3.8mm it is the world´s smallest LokSound
Since there are also no more mechanical obstacles in
the way, it is a pleasure to enjoy all the decoder´s features: the
LokSound micro V4.0 incorporates a complete digital decoder, which,
besides DCC and Motorola®, also understands Selectrix®. Beside the two
light outputs we were even able to integrate a sound-section, equal to
that of its bigger brothers and two user selectable function outputs.
The LokSound micro V4.0 will be either shipped as
6-pin NEM651 or 8-pin NEM652 plug version. For the first time we also
offer the new wireless Next18 interface version. Every LokSound micro
V4.0 decoder comes with a new 16mmx25mm loudspeaker (0.6 x 1.0 inch)
plus sound chamber.
The LokSound micro V4.0 recognises DCC, Selectrix®
and the Motorola® protocol. It can be operated with 14, 28 or 128 drive
steps or on analogue DC layouts in DCC mode. You can assign the
decoders to 2-digit, 3-digit (1-127) or 4-digit (1-9999) addresses as
well as a consist address.
The Motorola®-protocol provides the operation of the
LokSound micro V4.0 decoders with Märklin® control stations 6020®,
6021®, delta®, mobile station® and central station®.
The decoders can be used with the addresses 01 – 255
on this mode. A second address provides the possibility to use the
function keys F5 to F8.
The Selectrix® protocol provides the possibility to use LokSound V4.0 decoders with this also established system.
All established DCC brake systems like the
well-known Lenz® LG100, but also the new Lenz® ABC brake units with
asymmetrical DCC signal are recognised as well as the braking on DC
(with switched polarity) or on Selectrix® diode brake systems.
Of course, our top decoder is able to determine a
constant braking distance, so that your locos stop in front of the red
signal, no matter what speed your loco is at.
The decoders can switch automatically between all
modes (Motorola®, DC, DCC, Selectrix®) during operation. This is
important if some parts of your layout work with analogue control (e.g.
From a LokPilot decoder, you rightly expect an
excellent motor management. With the LokPilot micro V4.0, ESU
introduces the once more improved fifth generation of load control.
The standard frequency is adjusted adaptively to the
speed with a basic frequency of 40 kHz. The result is an even better
slow driving performance. Your locos will crawl super slowly - thanks
to the 10 Bit A/D convertor.
With Dynamic Drive Control (DDC) you can limit the
influence of back EMF and glide smoothly around the depot area and over
turnouts; while on the main, when going uphill, the engine slows down
The load control is well-prepared for all customary
motor types, such as ROCO®, Fleischmann®, Brawa®, Mehano®, Bemo®,
Märklin®, Faulhaber® or Maxon® motors. 0.75A steady load is more than
the above-mentioned motos need and offers enough energy reserves, even
for longer block trains.
The most important element of the new LokSound micro
V4.0 decoder is the sound chip. This is why we have equipped the
decoder with an enormous memory of 32 MBit to save up to 276 seconds of
original sounds. The LokSound micro V4.0 works with 8 polyphonic
channels, i.e. that the decoder is able to play up to 8 different
sounds simultaneously, using the 16-Bit mixer and the nearly noiseless
So we can provide a much better monitoring of the
original locomotive´s complex elements as it is possible to combine
several channels. You will notice the difference immediatly! The sounds
will be amplified up to three times louder than before by using a new
digital „class D“ amplifier. The speakers haven´t been left unchanged,
We also changed from the old type of speakers to
speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms. Use our provided stock of new
All single sounds of the LokSound micro V4.0 can be mixed in volume individually on nearly every digital control station.
The new super flexible sound engine without static schedule provides a very prototypical simulation of all railroad vehicles.
LokSound micro V4.0 decoders can be used on DC
ayouts as well. The motor and the synchronisation of all driving-,
sound- and light functions will be controlled in analogue mode, too!
So, model railroaders without digital systems can enjoy the LokSounds, despite the sounds on function keys.
LokSound micro V4.0 decoders have 4 function outputs
with the possibility of using constant current of 150mA. These outputs
can be assigned individually. Apart from that, there are two more
non-amplified outputs with logic level. All important light functions
like Flash, Gyrolight, Mars light, fire box and so on are provided
including the individual adjustment of brightness for each function.
Of course, the decoders provide automatic coupling
and decoupling for couplers by Roco®, Krois® and Telex® and from now on
even a full beaming head light function.
The LED mode controls the right light effects when using LEDs.
If desired it is possible to connect a PowerPack
(ESU Art.No. 54670) to the LokSound micro V4.0, as to all other ESU
decoders of the 4th generation. This energy storage continues to supply
the decoder with energy if the power consumption is not optimal due to
A very important function of the LokSound micro V4.0 decoder is the integrated RailComPlus®
function. Your locos will be recognised automatically by an
appropriate digital command station fast as lightning and will receive,
if needed, a new address. Forget about the cumbersome typing and
Of course, all function outputs and the motor
current output are overload protected. We want you to have fun with
your decoder as long as possible!
You can update the firmware of the LokSound
decoders. This means, the internal software on the decoder‘s memory can
be replaced by new versions if necessary. You‘ll simply need the ESU
LokProgrammer and a PC.
ESU, as the technologic and market leader takes your
requirements for sound very seriously. There are already more than 200
sound variations available for the LokSound micro V4.0.
ESU is extending the sound library all the time and provides all sounds on our homepage for free download.
