We are about to introduce a new range of Auxiliary Switch Units for use with
our lever frames.
These are supplied ready to fit and no adjustment is required. All are rated
There are five types:
Type ASR - functionally similar to our previous units - these sense levers
in the reverse position. Terminals - Com + one for each switch.
Type ASN - these sense levers in the normal position. Terminals - Com + one
for each switch.
Type ASNR - these have two switches for each lever to sense levers in both
normal and reverse positions. Terminal - Com + two for each lever.
Type ASTA - these directly drive Tortoise-type point/switch motors/machines.
These require a 6 to 9 V a.c. power supply. Terminal - power input (2),
Common + output for each lever (output is positive when lever is reversed,
negative when lever is normal).
Type ASTD - these are similar to type ASTA but use a split (+/0/-) 6 to 12 V
d.c. power supply.
Mounting Kits are supplied to suit any size of MODRATEC Lever Frame -
interlocked on non-interlocked. The mounting holes match those in existing
The new switch units will be available for purchase through The MODRATEC
Shop later next week. Please check the web site for introductory pricing
If you are within reach of Toowoomba (Southeast Queensland, Australia) this
weekend, please come and see us at the Toowoomba Model Train Exhibition. We
will have new Auxiliary Switch units to show you. Unfortunately, we have not
had time to make sufficient for selling yet, nor have we finalised pricing.)
And, as usual, you can "play" with our signal interlocking demonstration
