Re: double slip switch lantern (point indicator)
- Hi, for my N stuff i did some research for point switching motors and found a good and cheap alternative. A Glö(oe)ckner Drive, which is based on a dubble relais with mechanical indicator.
Have a look here:
There´s a report in the MIBA Magazine about it.
I bought those Relais at an Austrian electronics discounter:
For my points i needed some 20 relais, but to see their position on my semi SIEMENS DrS60 tableau, i needed another 20 Relais to combine to the points´ relais.
When evrything will be installed i need to push the BFT pushbutton together with all point-pushbuttons to activate the road, also i can see on the display where the train´s been directed to. A bit "oldfashioned", but it is worth it.
