Product Description

ESU 59029 LokPilot 5 Basic DCC, 21MTC

While LokPilot 5 decoders can undoubtedly meet all imaginable requirements of even the most demanding experts, many model railway eras are looking for a robust, high-quality DCC decoder for your standard requirements, which should also be affordable.

The LokPilot 5 Basic was developed with the aim of offering a modern decoder with a reasonable range of functions at a reasonable price.

The LokPilot 5 Basic comes in two versions: In addition to a version with an 8-pin NEM interface, a version with 21MTC interface is also available. This makes the LokPilot 5 Basic particularly suitable for use in track H0 vehicles.


The LokPilot 5 Basic is a "pure-bred" DCC decoder. 14 to 128 driving steps are as self-evident as 2- and 4-digit addresses. Up to 20 functions can be triggered. Thanks to RailComPlus®, the decoders log in fully automatically to a suitable digital center.

It masters all DCC programming modes and thanks to RailCom® the CV values can be read out on the main track with suitable control panels. Auxiliary registers exist for control panels that can only program the CVs from 1-255.

The LokPilot 5 Basic Decoder detects the Märklin® brake distances as well as the Lenz® ABC system. Braking with DCC brake blocks or dc voltage is also possible.The LokPilot 5 Basic Decoder can be used on analog DC webs. The maximum speed can be set separately.The decoder switches "on-the-fly" fully automatically between operating modes. Most of the time, nothing needs to be adjusted.


The LokPilot 5 Basic has 4 reinforced function outputs in each version. In the 21MTC interface, there are 8 logic-level outputs at the interface, two of which are also suitable for controlling servos. All important lighting functions are available. The brightness of each output can be set separately.


The motor control of the LokPilot 5 Basic delivers up to 0.9A continuous current. A variable PWM clock frequency from 10kHz to 50kHz ensures super-quiet operation, especially for bell anchor motors – The typical "hum" is a thing of the past. The load control can be adapted to difficult cases with up to 10 CVs. The unique "Autotune" function allows the decoder to be automatically measured against the motor.

Operational reliability

On request, a PowerPack can be connected to the LokPilot 5 Basic to bridge dirty rail cuts.


Of course, all function outputs as well as the motor output are protected against overload. We want you to enjoy your decoder for as long as possible.
