Panel and signal indication
« on: June 16, 2017, 02:21:36 pm »
 :confusedsign:

Hello everyone

You have probably seen questions about this before but I cannot for the life of me see the exact answer I am searching,
The problem is I am building n gauge layout which is DCC controlled for the trains
I have gauge master PM 10 points under surface mounted and requiring 3 wires to go into connection block, What I would like to do is a panel indication but do not know how to wire up something that sounds easy but to date is not,
Could this be achieved with Gauge master PM10 points,
Any help would be most appreciated
Chris

If you go to the block signalling website, he sells a PPI (point position indicator) which works with solenoid motors (3 wired ones).... comes with instructions and red/green leds to show point direction on a control panel

Depoending on how you plan to change the points.... using buttons or dcc

Hope that helps.

I've used both the block signalling PPI and the Microminatures one. Both work well and both have comprehensive instructions.

I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Whilst you are looking at Micro Minatures, have a look at their infra red control system, this not only changes the point motors by the hand set but also has connections for lights on a mimic board. Not cheap but very good. I damaged mine but the repair was turned around quickly and at a very reasonable cost.
