The LZV200 is currently in development and testing, along with the version 4 software.

Scheduled release date is early 2012























































New Command Station LZV200

We have been consistently working on new developments and integrating them into our system in the form of updates. Now, we take the next step and present the new version of the well known command station/amplifier combination LZV100:

The LZV200


Update to version 4 for LZV100, LH100 and LH90

Of course, the new features of the LZV200 (listed below) will also be available as an update for the LZV100. For the update, the LZV100 must be sent to Lenz. What makes this update so special, apart from its new features, is that all future updates can be carried out at home! An update will also be available for the LH100 und LH90 controllers. This update will, for example, facilitate the reading out of CVs via RailCom
while programming in operational mode. Detailed information will be published later.

Overview of the main features of the LZV200

New features as compared to the LZV100 are highlighted in bold-italic

Locomotive Addresses The range of locomotive addresses is 1 to 9999.
Address "0" for control of one analog engine.
Locomotive Names The LZV200 can store locomotive names (up to 8 characters).
Locomotive Up to 29 features are avaliable for each locomotive address.
Features and Configuration Features 1 to 28 can be set separately to momentary or permanent operation. This setting is saved with the locomotive address.
Function Names The LZV200 can store function names (e.g.: bell, whistle etc.). The name can be up to eight characters long.
Speed Steps Speed steps 28 to 128 are supported.
The speed step can be set separately for each locomotive address.
Double and Multiple Unit Consists Two or more locomotives can be combined and controlled jointly. To manage a double or multiple units, the LZV00 has an internal database of information stating whether a locomotive is part of a double or multiple unit and, if so, which one.
This database can be queried and altered by all XpressNet participants.
RailCom Integrated global RailCom detector.
Programming in Operational mode (PoM) Programming of locomotive decoder functions while the locomotive is located somewhere on the layout. Through the built-in global RailCom detector, the content of CVs can also be read and displayed. (if the locomotive decoder that is addressed supports the RailCom function)
Programming on the Programming Track The LZV200 supports all three NMRA compliant types of programming: CV programming, register programming and page mode programming.
Accessory Decoders The address range for Accessory Decoders is 1 to 2048. Real point feedback is available in the range 1 to 256.
AUTO Mode This mode ensures that the locomotives are again provided with the stored data when the system is activated. If this mode is enabled, the control commands for the locomotive addresses are stored and sent when the system is activated.
The information of functions F0 to F4 is also sent.
XpressNet Communication to the input devices is established through the XpressNet connection.
LZV200 supports XpressNet devices from version 3.Extension of the XpressNet to up to 128 connectable devices possible.
Output Current The output current of the built-in amplifier is rated at a maximum of 5A.
Protection Functions Thermal overload and external voltage protection.
Housing Metal
Dimensions W 120 mm x H 55 mm x D 120 mm
