Infrared Detectors

These devices are simple infrared sensors that make detection of locomotives or rolling stock easy and reliable.  Just place the sensor where its invisible light beam will reflect off the object of interest and you're done - no time-consuming or frustrating adjustments!  Based on modern silicon technology, this sensor is tolerant of ambient (background) lighting conditions, be it completely dark or under full lights, with no false triggering.  Combined with a discrete under-track installation, this low-profile sensor solves many of the challenges that plague other optical detector products.

DCC Decoder Shield for Arduino

This board is an optoisolated interface shield for connecting an Arduino (as a decoder) to a model railroad DCC control system.  The board has provisions for sending a DCC ACK pulse, connecting I2C accessories and general purpose I/O lines, as well as optionally powering the Arduino from DCC power and providing up to 400mA of 5VDC to connected circuitry.
