The LokSound 5 Fx Decoder detects ZIMO® HLU brake commands or the Lenz® ABC system. Also DCC brake sections or Brake on DC voltage. An ABC commuter train system allows automatic commuting between two stations.


The LokSound 5 Fx decoder can play up to 12 channels simultaneously. Each channel can be resolved with up to 16 bits / 31250 kHz and offers hi-fi quality on your system. A 3W amplifier drives the speakers, 4 to 32Ω impedance.

All individual sound effects can be adjusted individually in the volume.

  • All important lighting functions are available.
  • Brightness of each output can be set separately.


Although the LokSound 5 Fx itself does not have an motor output, it still "simulates" one. This is used for synchronization with the motor car, in operation this ensures that the brake squeak takes place at the same time or that the lamps also switch the direction of travel at the same time.
