LokPilot 5

The LokPilot 5 is the most important representative of the LokPilot family and is suitable for almost all questions in locomotives of gauge H0 and 0.

LokPilot 5 decoders are offered with all common interfaces.


The LokPilot 5 is a real multi-protocol decoder. He masters the data format DCC as well as Motorola®, Selectrix® and M4. In DCC format, 14 to 128 speed steps are as natural as 2 and 4-digit addresses and up to 32 functions. Thanks to RailComPlus®, the decoders log on to a suitable digital center fully automatically.

It masters all DCC programming modes and, thanks to RailCom®, the CV values ​​on the main track can be read out with suitable control centers. Auxiliary registers exist for control centers that can only program CVs from 1-255.

Motorola® users benefit from up to 28 speed steps with 255 addresses. Three additional Motorola® addresses enable the activation of 16 functions. A built-in programming mode also makes reprogramming possible with the venerable Control Unit 6021.

The M4 protocol enables automatic registration at mfx®-compatible control centers. All 32 possible function keys are offered here.

The LokPilot 5 decoder recognizes the Märklin® braking distances as well as ZIMO® HLU / ZACK commands or the Lenz® ABC system. Braking with DCC brake modules or with DC voltage is also possible. It also stops with a Selectrix® brake diode. An ABC automatic shuttle train enables automatic commuting between two stations.

The LokPilot 5 decoder can be used on analog DC and AC railways.The decoder switches between the operating modes fully automatically "on-the-fly". Usually nothing needs to be set.


We know that you want your locomotives to be as realistic as possible. Therefore, we packed the LokPilot 5 with function outputs. Depending on the interface version, each LokPilot 5 decoder offers at least 10 amplified function outputs with 250mA output current each. In the versions with PluX22 or 21MTC interface, 4 outputs are added to control servos or logic level outputs. All important lighting functions are available. The brightness of each output can be set separately. The decoder masters the automatic pressing and detaching when uncoupling for ROCO®, Krois® and Telex® couplings.

Motor control

The engine control of the LokPilot 5 has been fundamentally improved again. A variably adjustable PWM clock frequency from 10kHz to 50kHz ensures super quiet operation, especially with bell-armature motors - the typical "hum" is a thing of the past. The load control can now be adapted to difficult cases with up to 10 CVs. The unique "Autotune" function enables the decoder to be automatically calibrated to the motor. With up to 1.5A motor current, the LokPilot 5 decoder provides enough juice even for older motors.

Operational safety

On request, a PowerPack can be connected to the LokPilot 5 to bridge dirty rail sections.


Of course, all function outputs and the motor output are protected against overload. We want you to enjoy your decoder for as long as possible.


Possible under Selectrix® operation. Programming must be carried out in DCC mode. Programming with "pure" Selectrix® devices is not possible.
