LokSound 5 L is intended for use in all applications where the required power exceeds the limits of LokSound 5. Ideally, these are vehicles of gauge 0 and also smaller locomotives of gauge 1. Despite its compact dimensions of only 50.8 mm x 25.4 mm x 14 mm, it is equipped with a dual speaker output and an integrated PowerPack. The LokSound 5 is equipped with a multi-pole connector and is supplied ex-factory with an adapter board with soldering surfaces.

Operating mode:
As with all products in the LokSound family, the LokSound 5 L is a true multiprotocol decoder. It supports DCC as well as Motorola®, Selectrix® and M4. Naturally, it supports 14 to 128 speed steps, 2- and 4-digit addresses in DCC format and up to 32 functions. Thanks to RailComPlus®, the decoders register fully automatically with suitable central units. This decoder supports all DCC programming modes and thanks to RailCom® you can read the CV values on the mains, provided you have a central unit that supports RailCom®. There are auxiliary program registers for central units that only facilitate programming CVs from 1 to 255. Motorola® users benefit from up to 28 speed steps and 255 addresses. Three additional Motorola® addresses allow activation of 16 functions. An integral programming mode even allows programming with the good old Control Unit 6021. The M4 protocol supports automatic login to mfx®-compatible control units. The LokSound 5 L decoder supports Märklin® brake sections as well as ZIMO® HLU brake commands or the Lenz® ABC system. Braking with DCC brake generators or with DC is also possible. In addition, with a LokSound 5 L, the locomotive comes to a stop when a Selectrix® brake diode is switched into the circuit. The ABC push-pull function enables automatic shunting between two stations.

The LokSound 5 L decoder can output up to 10 channels simultaneously. Each channel offers up to 16 bit / 31250 kHz and thus we have finally achieved hi-fi sound quality on your layout. For all practical purposes, one cannot detect any difference from the original. A dual Class D audio amplifier with an output power of up to 2 times 3 W powers the speakers with an allowable impedance of 4 32 Ohms. The huge sound memory of 128 MBit provides sufficient storage capacity. The volume of all individual sound fragments can be adjusted individually. The extraordinarily flexible sound engine without rigid flow chart allows prototypical simulation of all conceivable railroad vehicles. Three individually adjustable braking functions and two alternative loading scenarios offer you maximum control over your vehicles.

each LokSound 5 L decoder features 11 amplified function outputs. In addition, there are 6 logic outputs, which can control two RC servos or SUSI expansion modules if desired. Of course, all major lighting functions are supported. The brightness of each output can be adjusted individually. The decoder supports the automatic push and pull movements the so-called torque roller required for the reliable operation of digital couplers such as those of ROCO® and Krois® and Telex® couplers. Four sensor inputs can be used to activate functions.

Motor control:
The motor control of the LokSound 5 L has been further improved. A variable PWM pulse frequency from 10 kHz to 50 kHz ensures perfect quiet operation, especially with coreless motors. The typical hum is thus a thing of the past. Load control can now be adjusted with up to 10 individual CVs and can thus handle even the most difficult cases. The unique Auto Tune function facilitates the automatic calibration of the decoder to perfectly match the engine. The LokSound 5 L decoder provides ample current for the motor, up to 3.0 A.

LokSound 5 L DCC:
The LokSound 5 L DCC is made for the North American and Australian markets. It’s a pure DCC decoder, supports RailComPlus and can also be used on DC tracks.The LokSound 5 L decoder is also suitable for analog DC and AC tracks.
