Gaugemaster SS1 shuttle unit
« on: July 10, 2019, 04:04:02 PM »
Have one of these unit connected as per instructions to a dedicated shuttle track on my layout.
Diodes and rail breaks again as per instructions.
Problem is that loco will travel right to left, stop when past diode at that end, starts after time interval and heads left to right. It does not stop when passing diode at right end and hits the buffers.
When tested with conventional controller, loco stops when past diode at both left and right hand ends.
Same happens with spare SS1 shuttle unit as well.
What's going on?

Further to the above, a rummage in the 'useful bits' box turned up a Heathcote SA1 shuttle module and two kits to make up the MERG Hector optical train detector as possible replacement for the SS1. The SA1 uses IRDOT-1 to provide train detection at the end of the track. Can the Hector units be substituted?
