ESU 59325 LokPilot DCC Decoder.png

ESU 58219 LokSound 5Fx Sound-only DCC/DC Sound Decoder with 21MTC Connector.  No motor output, designed to use with locomotive, train cars to produce any sound downloaded from the ESU 5 Series Sound Library.  Although the LokSound 5 Fx itself does not have a motor output, it still "simulates" one. This is used for synchronization with the locomotive or motor car where ideally a "full-fledged" LokSound 5 decoder does its job. In the train set, this ensures that the brakes squeal occur at the same time or that the lamps switch the direction of travel at the same time.These DCC decoders can be used with LGB locomotives in DCC or DC Analog power (Max 28 volts input).  Note: ESU PowerPacks do not work on ESU decoders in DC Analog current, and there are no solder pad terminals for connecting a volume control board on these very small decoders.

Requires use of the 21MTC Adapter Board listed above.Comes with a 11 x 15mm sugar cube loudspeaker.
Size:  5.15mm x 5.5mm.

ESu ECoS DCC Command Station.GIF

As a multi-protocol command station, ECoS supports DCC, Märklin® Motorola®, Selectrix® and the M4 data protocol. M4 drives and controls locomotives equipped with mfx® decoders without any restrictions. M4 is completely compatible. You can even continue to use almost all of your present loco decoders. ECoS is therefore the only digital command station worldwide that unifies 4 data protocols.  Features:  Two Output Terminals, one for the  Track Layout & another for the Programming Track; RailcomPlus automatically reads decoders with RailcomPlus and populates the command station - No need to assign a locomotive address (CV1).  

With an ECoS you can run locos: via two integrated cabs with large, easy-grasp motor driven throttle knobs and nine precise click-function keys you control your locos. In combination with the touch screen, you can control up to 20 functions per engine.

ECoS controls turnouts and magnetic accessories: a large, graphical control panel provides you access for up to 1420 turnouts (DCC or Motorola® protocol).

With ECoS you can plan and control routes: simply put turnouts and magnetic accessories graphically in groups and switch them together. Routes will be activated either by feedback contacts or by key. You can even use s88 occupancy detectors or ECoSDetector feedback modules.

With ECoS you can operate shuttle trains very easily: put a rail contact at both ends of the track and ECoS will do the rest.  The ECoS built-in booster has so much power that, in most cases, you don‘t need additional ones.

Comes with an ESU 7 Amp 21 Volts DC Power Supply

For wireless use, you must purchase the ESU Mobile Controller II shown below.

MSRP $799.90;  Your Price $675 - Non- Stocked - Special Order Required

 

SPECIAL NOTE:   Want 12 Amps to your entire track layout, you can use a Massoth 8135501 DiMax 1202B 12 Amp Digital Booster ($550) and a Massoth 8312066 Booster CAN-Bus Cable ($30) to connect to the ESU CabControl or ECOS Digital Command Station.  Requires a separate DC Power Supply for the Massoth Booster  such as the Massoth 8135604 12 Amps 22 volts DC Switching Power Supply ($170) - Total for all three items $750.   See the details in the Massoth DCC Decoders & Components page.

Massoth Pulse Smoker Rectangular.png

Massoth 8413502 Digital Pulse Smoke Generator Rectangular.  The pulsed high-performance smoke generator (New Item 2022) can be used autonomously in steam or diesel operation mode. Due to the direct track reception and integrated software decoder, control by digital address via the digital system is possible at any time, a separate decoder is no longer required. The integrated decoder takes over all necessary evaluations, a SUSI interface is therefore no longer available. By means of clock generator and bus connection for MASSOTH/LGB, the smoke generator can be integrated into many existing locomotives, if the required installation space is available. The filling quantity of the tank should be 4cm³ or maximum 6cm³ (best dosed with a pipette).

Measuring PWM Voltage - Manufacturer's Technical Response

 

The RRampmeter should accurately measure a PWM waveform.   After all, DCC is a form of PWM. However, the RRampmeter reads the TOTAL RMS value of the waveform, DC + AC. Your Fluke set to read AC blocks DC and is only measuring the AC component. Since the lights and smoke unit are going to respond to the DC value of the PWM (and I assume the PWM is on/off, so there is a DC component), you should measure these outputs with the Fluke meter set to DC.  One other thing to keep in mind is that the RRampmeter is designed to power itself from the input, so on a low power circuit such as a light output, the added load may affect the reading.   Make sure you are using the battery for power and not the input signal. Even with the battery, the RRampmeter will load the circuit more than the Fluke (25.4K vs 10 Meg). For this reason, the Fluke set to read DC might be the better choice.
