I did tried to add ESU digital lighting 50708 in the CS3 but it fail to read the decoder.
When i switch the lighting on it´s start flicker.
I use DCC protocol and did also tested MM protocol.
With MM protocol it does not work anything at all.
Is there problem in the CS3 by use other competitors products?
When i did used Brawa locomotive it fails too by read decoder.
It always show up CV read fail.
DCC means Digital Command Control.

To read an address in either MM or DCC you must use the programming track of the CS3. Then read out address is workong

Goofy, is it on and off or flicker, flicker means it is continuously on but varies in strength, with DC it eliminates flicking, check your connections.

I don´t understand.
The CS3 system is set with mfx,MM and DCC.
When i did used MM there was no lighting.
With the DCC the lighting are flicker.

Hi Anders,

No fault with the CS3. Even with Lokprogrammeryou cannot read the CV values without first connecting a load to aux. See below from manual:

Programming with DCC systems The interior lighting strip knows all programming methods of the NMRA. Use either the Programming track or the main track programming („Programming on Main“). Note the relevant section in the manual of your Command Station. Connect to AUX1 a load of 60mA to 100mA , in order to read CVs!

I have installed a couple of these and works fine with no flickering. I have left the default address at 3.

Best Regards
Lasse

The product has various simulated lighting modes: "Various prototypical lighting effects such as soft dimming, fluorescent lamp effect, faulty fluorescent lamp, battery powered lighting and many others provide realistic results. " So could it be the flickering you see is part of a specific CV set mode the light has been programmed to emulate?

ESU digital lighting are set as standard and adress 3 with DCC/MM protocol.

I did tested ESU digital lighting with another digital system and there was no flickering. It seems Märklins CS3 is not working as it should do.

Maybe you should get a ESU controller to solve your problem.
Take care I like Marklin and will defend the worlds greatest model rail manufacturer.
