I want to control my turnouts from a MODRATEC frame using Wire-in-Tube - so far so good.

But I need to control just a couple of turnouts electrically, because I don't want to run WiT across a baseboard join. Can I do this with the optional MODRATEC switches? Usually I would control electric point motors with an electric pencil or a passing contact switch and a CDU.

Any ideas would be welcome!

AnrewIC, have a look at the following article on the MODRATEC web site:

Also note that by using the MODRATEC point-wit, it is quite practical to run mechanical links across baseboard joins. Check out:

Useful circuits, thanks very much.
