Misc Details


All that is needed is to open the tender, remove the standard Paragon 3 or 4 decoder and install the BLI P34 adapter board. All connections can be made exactly as before:

  1. The type and position of all plug connections is exactly like for the factory installed decoder. ...
  2. The locomotive itself does not need to be opened.
  3. The LokSound 5 decoder can communicate with the electronics built into the locomotive using a serial protocol and directly control all smoke and light functions.
  4. An integrated PowerPack ensures uninterrupted operation even on dirty rails.

Requires a LokSound 5 decoder with 21MTC interface. From firmware 5.9.159 this can speak the required protocol instead of SUSI. Appropriate preconfigured sound files will gradually be made available on ESU's website.
