English Manual


The new ESU PowerPack Mini can be wired to all fourth and fifth generation ESU decoders. It reliably supplies energy to your locomotive when traversing dirty track or long turnout ladders.

With its Huge energy storage, this 1 Farad, 2.7v Supercapacitor (Goldcap) with integrated electronics supplies power to all light and motor functions as well as to the sound module. Discharge time is subject to the energy consumption of your model.

The PowerPack Mini incorporates an integral charging circuit controlled by the decoder. Therefore it may be connected even during programming. In order to avoid an undue load on the booster in case there are several models in the same booster sector, the charging current is limited.

The buffer time can be adjusted by means of a CV. This may be useful to assure the correct stopping position ahead of signals showing the “Stop” aspect (red signal).

Although it is considerably smaller than its predecessor, the space requirements of the PowerPack Mini of about 15.7 mm x 9.7 mm x 13 mm must be taken into account when installing this unit.

A three-pole wire harness connects the PowerPack Mini to the decoder. The wires tails are already soldered to the PowerPack Mini.

All v5 decoders now supplied by SWD will have the extra wire tails for the Powerpack pre soldered, making it easy for you to connect  together.

Note: If the Powerpack is not required the decoder unused tails must be insulated.

Please note that the PowerPack cannot operate in analogue mode due to technical reasons: Buffering is therefore not possible in analogue mode.
