Auto Reverse Module with feedback by DCC Specialties – #246-PSxARFB
Features of the PSX-ARFB
- Automatic Coordination of Auto Reverse and Circuit Breaker Tasks: It is both an auto reverser and a
circuit breaker. Fast, all solid state design with reliable quiet electronic reversing, no blinks, clicks or sparks!
- Adaptive Load Reset: Electronically senses if the overload is a real short or due to in-rush capacitance of sound decoders.
- Automates Reverse Loop Turnouts: Integrated stall motor or snap coil decoder, automatically lines up
switch machines when the polarity is reversed. Switch machine can also be controlled with standard DCC accessory commands or push buttons.
- Manual or Automatic Reset: Automatic reset of the breaker or a push button switch can manually reset.
- Outputs for LED Indicators: LEDs can be added to monitor input/output power and status.
- Wide Range of Current Trip Setting: Trip currents are adjusted by jumpers or CVs: 1.27 to 19.2 A
- System Reset: A single CV command sets all Addresses and CVs to original factory values.
- Output for Audio Alarm: An audible sounder can be added to the PSX-AR to alert you when there is a short.
- Booster Function for Low Current: Some boosters need help when resetting. Adding a jumper kick starts low Amp systems.
- Auto Stop with CV Reset: A photocell can detect a train in the reverse section and turn off power. A DCC command can then restore the power.
- Board size: is 5 3/4 by 3 3/4 inches, designed to fit standard Radio Shack enclosure.
- All of the above plus Feedback and Block Occupancy Feedback for Shorted and Occupancy Status to Digitrax LocoNet, Lenz ExpressNet and NCE CabBus
