This system is designed to integrate with your stall motor switch machines, most notably the Tortoise, Walthers (depending on use of the Auxiliary control), Rapido Railcrew and Cobalt switch machines, without soldering wires, to provide signals to the oncoming locomotives.
It comes in either HO or N scale.
Customers have stated this is the simplest system to install in the market.
The complete system consists of:
- 3 HO Dwarf or Tall signals with 2 pairs of ~2ft of 1mm fiber each
- 1 HO Signal Controller unit
- 2 Quick Splice Connectors - Suitcase style
You can purchase the signals separately or as part of the kit, likewise the controller.
HO Dwarf signal: 14.9mm tall and 6.7mm wide, stub is 12mm, uses 1mm fiber.
HO Tall Signal: 70mm tall and 6.7mm wide, stub is 12mm, uses 1mm fiber
No power supply is needed, it takes a small current from the supply to the switch machine.
This is especially helpful for operating sessions where it is very useful to see which way the dispatcher has a switch set.
Here are the instructions for use.
This will not work with the Coil switches such as Atlas, Kato or other such turnout controllers.
