So the MX31 handheld could set a CV in the command station... weird... I'll have to look at an old manual...


I assume I can set serial on a loco by loco basis in my systems?

Serial implies 14 speed steps and the MX32 needs to set the decoder address to 14 steps, and if using a zimo decoder the decoder cv112 needs to have the value of 128 added. OF course if you have the original LGB serial only decoders (55020 for instance) then only the Zimo MX 32 (read any system handheld needs 14 speed steps assigned to the engine address).

So if I set my MX32 to 14 speed steps on a particular loco address, does it change the functions to serial?

I can tell you that a friend of mine with the NCE system does have to depress the F1 key and count presses for functions on the old version LGB Mikado. I worked on this engine and I believed I had to do the same but I do not remember if it was the MX1 or MX10 system that I used. 4 F1 presses will give F4 results. It is the SUSI sound unit that needs serial communication on this old Mikado and it was Klaus that installed the decoder many years ago.
