Welcome MRH Readers!
Block Detection - A Brief Introduction
sense the presence of a locomotive or other rolling stock on a section
of track. They are used as inputs to signal systems and control panels, and
to indicate occupancy on hidden track and staging yards. Our easy-to-install DCC Block Detector
senses the current drawn by a locomotive, lighted car, or resistor
equipped wheel set. Simply run the track feeder wire through the hole
in the current sensor - no electrical connection to the track is
required. Connect the output, provide power, and adjust the sensitivity
- now you're ready to go! An advanced digital design makes sensitivity
adjustment easy and reliable for years of trouble-free operation.
Signals Made Easy
for an easy way to add Automatic Block Signaling (ABS) to your layout?
Involved in Free-Mo or another modular group and want to add signals to
your module? The Modular Signal System (MSS) is the answer. Defined as
a plug-and-play signal system, MSS allows you to add realistic
signaling with no programming required! Our cost-effective MSS modules come complete with everything you need: block detectors (DCC and optical), pre-programmed control logic, LED signal drivers, and a rugged and reliable MSS bus interface.
