Locomotive DCC Decoder

LokPilot DCC Decoder (No Sound)

Custom programmed for accurascale Locomotives, to take advantage of the full lighting suite and PowerPack.

Common Features:

  • 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

    A PowerPack can be connected to the LokPilot 5 to bridge dirty rail sections and is included in all accurascale locos as standard


    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.

Class 55 DCC

I finally got round to converting my Class 55 to DCC.
I didn’t go for sound this time. A removable roof section, genius.
The decoder fits in easily, and works like a dream.

The Computer in Your Locomotive.

ESU LokPilot V5. What is there to say?
For a start, absolutely loads of functionality with a possible 14 outputs. A programmable function table with 72 lines each consisting ten input CVs, three function CVs, three logic CVs and (believe it or not) one sound CV in a non sound decoder (four in the LokSound version). And that’s just the start, you only have to look at the ESU V5 manual to get some idea of what this unit can do. A word of warning, the manual contains several typographical errors and a few CVs in the wrong order (Random Functions Table). I could go on for ages.
Does all you’ll ever want in the Class 55 straight from the box as it’s set up to take care of everything the loco is designed for. Considering the LokPilot V5 retails elsewhere for £35+, this one at under £30 is a real bargain.
Having already fitted the sound version to my 55, this LokPilot is bound for a Bachmann Class 66 with upgraded lights boards plus a little reprogramming for ten outputs. This really is, The Computer in your Locomotive. Well done to Accurascale for making it available.

Upgrade for DCC

I purchased this decoder in preparation for my upgrade to DCC later this year.

The installation could not have been easier pop the cover off the roof of the class 55 pop out the blanking plate and replace the DCC decoder.

I am currently running the Class 55 on a DC layout but have installed the DCC Decoder the speed control is improved and the the cab lights now work on DC.

Overall simple installation and works on DC.
