The BLOCK signalling 8-channel train detector is a cost-effective way to monitor the presence of trains on sections of track anywhere on your layout. Using the included photoelectric detectors the module detects trains and drives LED’s to indicate when trains are present.
The various settings on the module can easily be adjusted to tailor the operation to your own requirements. For instance, the LED’s can set to operate only when the train is immediately above the detector, useful for coupling and uncoupling operations or anywhere where a train needs to be positioned precisely.
Alternatively, the inputs can be used in pairs, with one channel triggering an led and the other channel resetting that led. For instance, this could be used on sections of track to detect a train entering and leaving.
