Commonly used with analogue or DC control for point and isolating switches.
Breaking your layout down into a “London underground” style map so parts of the layout are easily identified with integrated switches, route indicator, track occupancy LED’s and controllers.
From basic ovals with passing loops to large complicated layouts with multi circuits and multiple points and isolating sections. I can undertake most applications and they can be built to your specifications to suit your layout and needs.
A recent panel I made up for a regular customer who had added a bit more to his layout and required a new bigger panel for his layout this will have all point and isolation switches down on the right side of the panel with the track plan covering 3/4 of the board to the left.
One recent panel this has LED's to show point postion and the layout is dual control both DCC and analog simple but effective.
Here is a basic control panel awaiting the track plan and switches to be added.
The panel itself measures only 2ft by 1ft with an intergrated controller
A more complex panel for a terminus station this has both isolating and point switches and incator LED's to show the position of the points.
This panel is fairly straight forward works on a DCC layout showing the track plan and point switches point incator LED's with track occupancy LED's in the hidden storage roads at the bottom of the plan.
I have recently been working on a small project to help those who find wiring switches for point motors and isolating sections a little difficult.
These control boxes are priced at £28 each (£30 inc post), they have basic wiring instructions included even so they are very easy to install.
Point control box
Isolating control box
The isolating control box does have a couple of uses, clearly track isolating is one, another is for lighting circuits but I'm sure you'll find lots of other uses. They have basic wiring instructions included even so they are very easy to install.
Capacitor Discharge Unit
I have working on a Capacitor Discharge Unit to use in conjunction with my Point control boxes these simply plug into the point control boxes replacing the power lead then connect power to the CDU then the return from the points and away you go. They have basic wiring instructions included even so they are very easy to install.
Priced at £30 each (£35 inc post)
Signal control boxes
For those who need switching for colour light signals Priced at £28 each (30 inc post)
They have basic wiring instructions included even so they are very easy to install.
