LGB 55020 Digital MTS LOCO Decoder Does Not Work for Parts Only
You can press a function key to verify multiple flashes or a single flash serial or parallel respectively Notes on CV programming, no programming I think means blindly issue the CV setting command, no readback. I suspect these switches are the ones that connect the track pickups directly to the motor, and also wire the lights to the motor.
Lb New media New comments Search media. In my opinion, newer decoders are so much more capable with so many new features that I would give strong consideration to replacing any decoder that is serial only or no sound for that matter So, let’s proceed to try to unravel the complex story of LGB MTS, and where the capabilities and limitations are.
This was a 5 amp max booster, lggb the power lhb was separate. It’s an older version You can download the instruction manual here; http: You used address 8 to control the analog loco.
Sammler Registered 2 Apr Sometimes it’s hard to know what LGB decoder you have, and even more difficult to know lhb their capabilities are. Also, you are limited to decoders that support 14 speed steps. Massoth, for example, can connect various controllers to the LGB command station.

LGB decoders may require the motor as a load on the decoder when in service mode Hello Just wondering about an L. B chip ref no if this is a reasonable chip to put in maybe a stainz or something like that? Seletrix was developed by Doehler and Hass for Trix in early 80’s.
I will endeavor to unravel this mess, but my recommendation is that since electronics are so inexpensive nowadays, that you jettision any really old LGB system and upgrade. Credit for help with this information goes to my friends, and other helpful people, but a special note of thanks to Dan Pierce.
You program the decoder address from a sequence of button pushes, with the address selector set to the address you want, so it’s clear of what the max range is.

I’m not sure the central station was available by itself. I suppose I’d have to find 55020 with a parallel system who could re-program it for me.
Notes on CV programming, no programming I think means blindly issue the CV setting command, no readback. The Motorola protocol was called that because it used a Motorola chip.
Parallel means that each function was a different code, so faster. Trix had exclusive rights to the system. The ‘buzzing’ noise doesn’t worry me, just as long as it’s reliable.
The early system were limited in many ways. Also, LGB was never very forthcoming about the individual limitations, but just basically told you “use this with that”. Search Everywhere Threads 555020 forum This thread.
Serial means that the F1 key “strokes” were sent at 1 second intervals so you can see that this was slow. The train mouse seems to only be in serial mode. Forums New posts Trending Search forums. However a more modern chip will be better in many ways – and if you do buy a new one, then don’t forget that a Massoth L is effectively the same as an LGB but much cheaper!
Thread starter Phil Start date 13 Apr The left button controlled the loco lights, and the right button is the function button, pressed the number of times for the function you wanted serial function. HBBahn Registered 13 Apr Be sure to get the manual on the loco and what the switches do first.

I kgb originally thinking about getting the Massoth L though I’ve heard that out of the box they’re configured for parallel Central Stations, not ‘Serial’ like the one I have.
You wouldn’t need a parallel system to reprogram it. If you have a serial command station, then only certain decoders will operate on your layout. It was shown at the Nurnberg toy fair, it was introduced 6 years later in by Marklin under the name of “Digital HO”.
In my opinion, newer decoders are so much more capable with so many new features that I would give strong consideration to replacing any decoder that is serial only or no sound for that matter.
