Its been a busy summer for us with multiple devices (Servo Controller 12, Relay Driver, MultiPanel and Feedback Module) receiving software and documentation updates. We’ve also launched a new product – the Automatic Brake Control Generator for DCC systems and there’s progress on the JMRI PC integration. Here’s a summary of the changes over the […]
The shop now has DCC ABC generators in stock. See the shop pages for user guide and demonstration video. Available in single and 8 pack formats, this circuit will enable automatic braking on suitably equipped DCC locos. Can be interlocked with signals or track circuit for fully automatic operation.

This video shows a test track installation (N gauge) of infra red (optical) feedback detectors. I added white paper strips to the bottom of the wagon and loco to aid detection. Suitable for use on both analogue and digital installations. Video link here
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 shows a prototype optical sensor that will become integrated into our block detection and feedback system. Expected to become available in December 2017, this device features an additional ambient light sensor as well as the rolling stock sensor making the unit self calibrating, even in unstable light environments. The optical sensor is ideal […]
Part one shows the removal of the guts and installation of a servo (HobbyKing HK-5330). The unit is hooked up to a MegaPoints Servo Controller and tested. During installation the pushrod (piano wire) is replaced and we discuss installation factors. Part one
A demonstration showing how a block detector can be connected directly to a Servo Controller setting up a track circuit for a semaphore signal. Every time a locomotive enters the block the semaphore signal automatically drops to danger until it is clear. This sets up fully automatic signals on your layout. Video link – Track […]
