Smart Switch System
The SmartSwitch servo control system
is a recent addition to the Peco
range of electronic products, providing an alternative means of automated
operation for turnouts and semaphore signals.
Advantages of SmartSwitch.
The main advantages of using a servo to operate
a turnout or semaphore signal are that it allows precise
control over the pitch of the throw, is less noisy
than the "zap" of a solenoid and the speed of the
throwing action can be adjusted to suit. The physical
size of a servo assembly is also a lot smaller
than some of the popular types of slow-action
turnout motor, making it much more versatile and
suitable for confined spaces.
Full details of the system can be found here Peco Smart Switch Flyer in an article adapted from a recent copy of Railway Modeller.
