The MiniPanel Processor is a simplified mimic panel controller for up to 12 channels and is available as a bare bones circuit board or starter kit including all LEDs, buttons, plugs and cables. Designed for smaller layouts, the MiniPanel can control servos for points or semaphore use; traditional solenoid points motors, Tortoise type stall motors […]
More on bi coloured LEDs (compound), how to hook them up to a MultiPanel and a demonstration of their use. There’s also an infra red sensor update and progress. Video link here.
This video illustrates the design constraints we are under when creating more compact and higher detailed mimic panels and how we’ve solved this with smaller button footprints. The second half of the video introduces inexpensive infra red detectors suitable for both analogue and digital systems and the changes we’ve made to incorporate them easily into […]
