Description

A decoder used to control turnouts on the model railway.

One decoder can handle up to 5 servos and will also handle polarization of the crossing point of turnout.

Turnout can be controlled locally by buttons connected to the decoder or remotely from a panel or computer by the use of LocoNet.

All configurations are done with a mobile phone or a computer through LocoNet.

Very easy to handle but yet with a large set of available functionality.

Fully compatible with LocoNet and can be used together with other LocoNet compatible products on the market.

Power, 5 Volt, 1-2 A should be used and is not supplied with the decoder.
Power supply can be of type "mobile phone charger" and connects through an "USB micro"connection or through a "screw terminal".
Card can be connected together through the screw terminal" and use the same 5volt power supply.

Functions:

- controls 5 servos of the type used in radio controlled models.

- handles the polarization of turnout crossing.

- connections for buttons to change turnouts, either push buttons or switch buttons.

- adjustable speed of the servos, ie how fast the turnout is moving is adjustable to suit personal preference.

- Servo motions angles, direction, polarity, etc. are adjustable.

- Support for routes, ie one change order may set several turnouts to provide a path to eg the platform. 5 different routes with 6 switches per route can be set.
  A route will have its own address and can be controlled from local buttons and from remote panels etc.
  Turnouts in a route can be both internal to the decoder as well as external (from other decoders).

- dependence between turnouts can be added. An example of use could be two turnouts providing a transition between the sides on a double track, where changing one will automatically change the other.

- locking of switches, eg if you want to use  a physical key to allow switching.

- 5 inputs (1/0) for track status sensors (occupied track). This function uses the same inputs as for local buttons so these two functions can not be used simultaneously.

- direction dependent track status can be defined. This means a "sensor" that reports a train on the track coming only from a given direction.

- Advanced rule management for events at the model railway where the turnouts can be made to change based on occupied tracks, signals position, state of other turnouts, etc.
  With a few simple rules, one decoder can fully control an automatic loopback or a railroad crossing equipped with barriers!

- Etc.
