LokPilot micro V4.0 is a genuine power house. It drives the loco motor with a continuous load
capability of 0.75A and has significantly shrunk compared to its forerunner: the smallest member
of the LokPilot V4.0 family has now a size of only 10.5mm x 8.1mm x 2.8mm and should thus fit in
the smallest N-/TT-gauge locos.
LokPilot micro V4.0 decoders are available in all common plug and interface versions such
as 6-pin NEM651 (with or without cable harness), 8-pin NEM652 or the brand-new wirless Next18
LokPilot micro V4.0 commands Motorola® and Selectrix® as well as DCC through 14, 28 and
128 speed steps or can be used on analogue DC layouts. You can either use 2- or 3-digit (1
– 127) as well as 4-digit (1–9999) addresses or assign a consist
Motorola® protocol enables the decoder to run with Märklin® stations 6020®,
6021®, Delta®, mobile station® and Central Station®. The decoders can command
addresses 01 – 255. A second address allows to switch F5 to F8, if
the LokPilot V4.0 decoders also speaks Selectrix® it can be operated with this proven system
supports Lenz® LG 100 resp. Roco® braking sections as well as Zimo®’s HLU-
commands, or the braking in DC braking sections with reversed polarity, or the Märklin®
braking section (even for DCC). But also the new Lenz® ABC brake modules with an asymmetrical
DCC signal is supported.
course, our top-class decoder is able to calculate a constant braking distance to stop your locos
correctly in front of the red signal regardless of the speed. LokPilot V4.0 decoders can also be
used for analogue DC or AC layouts.
LokPilot micro V4.0 converts during operation fully automatically between all control modes
(Motorola®, DCC, DC, AC and Selectrix®). That is important if some parts of your layout
are operated in analogue mode (e.g. fiddle yards).
LokPilot decoder, you rightly expect an excellent motor management. With the LokPilot micro V4.0,
ESU introduces the once more improved fifth generation of load control.
standard frequency is adjusted adaptively to the speed with a basic frequency of 40 kHz. The
result is an even better slow driving performance. Your locos will crawl super slowly - thanks to
the 10 Bit A/D convertor.
Dynamic Drive Control (DDC) you can limit the influence of back EMF and glide smoothly around the
depot area and over turnouts; while on the main, when going uphill, the engine slows down
load control is well-prepared for all customary motor types, such as ROCO®, Fleischmann®,
Brawa®, Mehano®, Bemo®, Märklin®, Faulhaber® or Maxon® motors. 0.75A
steady load is more than the above-mentioned motos need and offers enough energy reserves, even
for longer block trains.
LokPilot micro 4.0 decoder can also be used for analogue DC locomotives. The motor control
function is teaching the motor »good manners«.
LokPilot mirco V4.0 decoder has 2 function outputs which achieve 150 mA load each. They can be
allocated individually to different functions. There are two further unamplified outputs which
can be also used for both light or special functions.
important light functions as available, such as flashing light, firebox flicker, strobe –
and double strobe, Ditch Light etc. The brightness of each output can be adjusted separatly. Of
course, the decoder is able to control the automatic decoupling move and push time and also
offers a high beam function as a new feature. The „LED mode" ensures that the light effects
are set correctly when using LEDs.
desired it is possible to connect a PowerPack (ESU 54670, see page 62) to the LokPilot micro
V4.0. This energy storage continues to supply the decoder with energy if the power consumption is
not isn‘t optimal due to dirty tracks.
RailComPlus® your locos will be recognised automatically by an appropriate digital command

course, all function outputs and the motor connection are overload and short-circuit
LokPilot decoders are firmware updatable. This means you are able to replace the internal
decoder software by a newer version, if needed. You only need an ESU LokProgrammer to do
