The LokPilot V4.0 Decoder comes either as a fully-equipped multiprotocol decoder (DCC, Motorola(R) and Selectrix(R)) or as DCC version only.
The LokPilot Basic V1.0 supports the worldwide recognised DCC protocol. In this mode it can be utilized with 14, 28 or 128 speed steps, or on Analog DC layouts. It supports Lenz, LG 100 resp. Roco braking sections as well as braking in DC sections with reverse polarity. You can use addresses 1 – 119. During operation, the LokPilot Basic V1.0 converses fully automatically between operational modes (DC, DCC). That is important in case you run parts of your layout (fiddle yard) in analog mode.
All popular DC – or coreless motors regardless whether from Roco, Fleischmann, Brawa, Mehano, Liliput, Bachmann, Kato, Bemo, Faulhaber, or Maxon will be driven by the 0.75A continuous-current last stage of the LokPilot Basic V1.0 decoder. The 31kHz High frequency load control takes care of silky smooth, absolutely quiet motor operation and lets your engines crawl slowly on the layout. The load control can be optimized via 3 CVs for the motor in use. Thanks to mass-simulation the loco will not jerk, even with only 14 speed steps.
The LokPilot Basic V1.0 works also with no problems on Analog DC layouts, which means in spite of the club you belong to being analog; you can still run your locos.
The LokPilot Basic V1.0 offers three 180 mA steadycurrent outputs, dimmable together in 7 steps. Therefore you can wire up the cab illumination or a smoke generator besides the two standard reversing head lights. The built-in switching speed mode and the option to switch off the acceleration and deceleration rate with the touch of a key, helps you to glide smoothly around the depot area.
All programmable adjustments are done electronically. It’s not necessary to open up the loco anymore. Since the LokPilot Basic V1.0 knows all DCC programming modes, and all values are inserted with two digits, programming with all known central stations is a cinch. Especially comfortable is the programming of parameters for owners of our ECoS command station: all modifications are displayed on the large screen in plain language, and can be changed most easily.
All function outputs and the motor connection are protected against overload and short-circuit. We want you to enjoy your LokPilot Basic V1.0 decoder as long as possible.
