SMARTSWITCH

 BY ANE

 INTELLIGENT, MODULAR, SERVO BASED, TURNOUT CONTROL SYSTEM

 

 

AN EVERYTHING INCLUDED METHOD OF EITHER OR BOTH SIMPLE AND SOPHISTICATED TURNOUT CONTROL

At the core of the SmartSwitch System is a feature-rich intelligent quad servo controller, yet which operates with its factory default settings straight of the box.

Even the basic controller can be operated by any of the users choice of a wide range of methods, including, manual toggle switches, manual push buttons, regular DCC and even be automatically triggered on detection of an incoming train from any direction.

In addition to the base unit, there is an optional economic , plug-and-play servo operation parameters re-programming tool, with a very simple and clear user interface and display.

 This one tool can be used to easily make and store individual adjustments of each servo's start, center and stop position, operating speed and point contact pressures, on any of the base units that the user has anywhere on the layout.  Just couple it up to the base unit to be customized and make your changes in seconds.

  

Adding the SMARTFROG option to a SMARTSWITCH SYSTEM coupled to any turnout will automatically power the frog to match the set direction of any passing through train, without requiring any operator intervention. And in combination with SMARTSWITCH a SMARTFROG may even be used to automatically re-throw the turnout to the correct trailing direction

 

Smart Switch is designed to be modular, so that the user can select a full set or just the operating method desired for the minmum cost. The standard sets and modules are:
