The Perfect operational companion to our Eckon or Berko colour light signals, this Block Signalling module is an upgrade on the ASP1, ASP1-NS & SEC1A-DC modules.
The SEC4A-DCC adds full DCC compatibility to the function list of the SEC1A-DC, with realistic breaking to a stop at a signal as well as keeping lights and sound operational while at a stop (depending on DCC system settings).
The BLOCK signalling Section Control Module is designed for DCC layouts, to protect a section of track to prevent more than one train entering that section at one time.
- Monitors trains entering and leaving a section of track
- Automatically sets the signal at the start of the section to danger (red)
- Switches a section of track from DCC to DC, so DCC equipped locos automatically decelerate to a standstill in front of the signal at danger
- Communicates to previous sections to ensure they show yellow (and double yellow) aspects when 3- and 4-aspect signals are used
- Last section can simulate returning back to green using timers to provide realistic operation when 3- and 4-aspect signals are used
- Points which are not set in the trains favour can force the signal to danger and switch the isolating section to DC
- Signal can be forced to danger by an external input (useful for starter signals)
- Suitable for 2-, 3-, and 4-aspect led signals (SEC4A-DCC for common-cathode and SEC4B-DCC for common-anode signals)
- Bidirectional running mode with 2-aspect signalling at each end of the line
- New: Additional Station Stop Modes
- New: Additional Dapol output
- Remembers whether the section is occupied after the power is removed and automatically restores the signals after power returns
- Simple to setup, but also fully configurable to provide the most realistic operation
- Requires a 12V DC Power Supply
