However a more modern chip will be better in many ways – and if you do buy a 5020 one, then don’t forget that a Massoth L is effectively the same as an LGB but much cheaper! Parallel means that each function was a different code, so faster.
LGB 55020 – Multi-Train System Decoder
MTS 3 was released inmade by Massoth again, and allowed 4 digit addresses finallyserial and parallel function commands, and for the first time 14 or 28 speed steps, and also CV programming. Resources Latest reviews Search resources. Were the LGB decoders as reliable as the newer decoders? Seletrix was developed by Doehler and Hass for Trix in early 80’s.

Sammler Registered 1 Apr Thread starter ,gb Start date 13 Apr Also need to verify if there were address limitations built into the decoder. Massoth, for example, can connect various controllers to the LGB command station. I suspect these switches are the ones that connect the track pickups directly to the motor, and also wire the lights to the motor.
You can download the instruction manual here; http: 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 The speed control is center off.
The early system were limited in many ways. The ‘buzzing’ noise doesn’t worry me, just as long as it’s reliable. You’ll find that the motor buzzes because the PWM frequency isn’t very high, and there is no back EMF detection, so trains can run away downhill I have a true head in hands experience of this.

LGB Instruction Manual (Page 8 of 16)
It was based on a communications protocol developed by Siemens. Credit for help with this information goes to my friends, and other helpful people, but a special note of thanks to Dan Pierce. The Motorola protocol was called that because it used a Motorola chip. LGB ,gb may require the motor as a load on the decoder when in service mode The only way to read back CV’s is to use the computer interface need software versions, how to download, etc.
Serial means that the F1 key “strokes” were sent at 1 second intervals so you can see that this was slow. Notes on CV programming, no programming I think means blindly issue the CV setting command, no readback.
B chip ref no if this is a reasonable chip to put in maybe a stainz or something like that? You wouldn’t need a parallel system to reprogram it. Zerogee Clencher’s Bogleman 1 Apr This can be further compounded when mixing LGB system components with other manufacturer’s.
Lbg was built by Massoth in23 loco addresses, serial functions, 14 speed steps, no CV programming. Were they short addressing only?
