      ESU LokSound 5 XL Sound Decoder Smoker Install

      For ESU 5 XL Decoder Experts - I'm installing my first ESU 5 XL into a person's LGB 2018D Mogul which is complete.  I've also installed an LED in the headlight and a Massoth Firebox Flickering Light Module.  Now I want to install a Massoth DCC Pulsed Smoke Unit.  I can't tell from reading the 5 XL Instruction Manual how to set up a pulse output that's pulses in sync with the locomotive's speed/chuff rate.  Can someone advise where to connect the two wires from the Massoth unit and the other adjustments needed on the 5 XL?

      I've installed several Massoth DCC Pulsed Smokers onto Massoth DCC Decoders.  If you're not familiar with the Massoth Pulsed Smokers, there are two ways for it to receive pulsed inputs:  From a DCC decoder, or, from a hall sensor.  If the 5 XL can't produce a pulse input to the smoker, I'll have to then install a hall sensor unit into the Mogul.

      Thanks
