Question

Anyone using a Lenz controller with the Lenz silver 21 pin decoder in the MM 071/111 class loco's, or a Lenz 21 pin decoder.

I have them fitted in 082 & 112.

Functions F0, F1 & F2 are working fine.

F3 does not put the cab light on, but slows the loco down.

F4 not working.

F5 puts the cab light on radiator end. (not sure if that is end no 1 or 2)

All other functions do nothing.

Same for both loco's.

It's no big deal as the running lights work OK but what decoders are we to use in the 071/111 loco's to get the proper functions working.??

Thanks,

Wiggy.

That's correct as its only a 5 function decoder

F0,F1,F2,F3,F4 are your 5 functions

 

 

Ok so I learnt something there, but the other cab light does not work & what decoder does work the lights.

Bit confused on decoders as I would have thought that they all work the same just different amount of functions.:confused:

 

And if F0,F1,F2,F3,F4 are the 5 functions why dose F5 work the lights.?? still confused, decoders not my strong subject still trying to get my head around some of them.

Ok I will try and explain this as best I can if I'm wrong I stand corrected and I will have learnt something new today

 

As I said before the Lenz is a 5 function decoder

1st function is F0 side lights

2nd is F1 red tail lights on and off

3rd is F2 head lights these are directional

4th is F3 shunting speed

5th is F5 cab light #1 end

 

The reason f5 works the cab light is because that is probably the factory default. You could go into the CV settings and remap F5 to button 4. To get the cab light working on the other side I would assume you would need a six function decoder. The cheapest 21 pin 6 function is the TCS DECODER

Right so F3 is why it slows down.

Don't like messing in the CV's so I'll leave it as it is.

Don't see much use for shunting speed, it's all full ahead for me.

May be when I have more time next year I'll start to find out more on remaping and CV's.

Thanks, :cheers:

Can't help with the decoder, but the radiator end is no. 2 ;)
