Servos

Servos can be used for point motor (or turnout) control, or for controlling semaphore signals. On my layout all of the points are operated by Servos.

These servo controllers require no programming, the servo angle or distance of travel is simply set with trimpots using a screwdriver and the direction can be reversed with a switch.

Servo 7 (2 Servos, 2 or 3 positions, with speed control)

Servos 7 will drive 2 Servos, each is set to 3 position. These are ideal for servos used driving semaphore signals, and other animations. Each position is able to be finely adjusted for the correct position using the Trimpots (blue Square). The centre Trimpot is used to adjust the centre position. The speed of the servo travel is also adjusted using Trimpots.

These controllers can also be set for very reduced travel allowing very fine adjustment and slower servo speed for more realistic operation of semaphore signals that often have very small travel to move the signal arm.

The Price for Servos 7 or Servo 7 for Boom Gates is $60

Servos 8 (4 Servos, 2 positions)

The Servos 8 will drive 4 Servos, each is set to 2 position, these are ideal for servos used as point motors or other simple animations. 

I also have a video showing how simple it is to setup.

For more information download these instructions.

The Price for Servos 8 is only $60 (this is $15 per servo)

Servos 8g Gates (4 Servos, 2 positions)

The Servos 8G will drive 4 Servos, each is set to 2 position, these are controlled with a single input, especially designed for crossing gates.

I also have a video showing how simple it is to setup.

The Price for the Servos 8G is $60

Servos 9 (3 Servos, 2 positions, with speed control)

The Servos 9 will drive 3 Servos, each is set to 2 position. These are ideal for servos used driving semaphore signals, other animations. Each position is able to be finely adjusted for the correct position. These controllers also drive the servo slower for more realistic operation.
