Z-2500 Switch Machine Control, Accessory Control and Signal Driver

The basic PCB control board has many inherent applications as detailed below.  These have been used with both the Z-2500 & Z-2500 switch machines, external controls inputs and to drive various signals.

Z-2500 Control

This PCB controller mounts below the control panel or train table to support many applications including operating signal lights, automated accessories, and LED indicators and will interface directly with the Z-Stuff 2500 switch machine. Further with the addition of a switch and two LEDs can provide panel indicator/control for Z-2500. External trigger can operate relay & Tomar dwarf signals based on AC/DC signal. Extensive capabilities and examples provided in the instruction manual.

Z-2500 Remote Control & Signal Driver

The more extensive kit supports up to three sets of LED indicators with the on board supply. An external supply can also be used with the relay for loads up to 2 Amps. Tomar Dwarf signals & Switch sold separately.  Or buy the complete kit with controller, two Dwarf signals and control panel items (see third option below).

Accessory Controller

With different trigger inputs this unit may also control motorized accessories, bulb driven signals, or LED driven signals/lighting.  Trigger inputs can come from photo electric devices, isolated track, AC or DC signals.  Details of connections are provided in the instruction manual.

Description

The control trigger may be provided by a Z-2500 switch machine, Z-1000 switch machine, a digital 1 or 0 (TTL 5 volt hi/lo), positive/negative DC, presence of AC signal, and grounded signal.  The change in trigger level controls the position of the DPDT relay and also direct outuputs for a Tomar Dwarf signal.   The relay supports up to 2 Amps of AC or DC.  The top center three terminals are designed to directly drive the Red/Green signals of the Tomar Dwarf Signal (yes, we sell those too!).  Accessory voltage is used to drive the controller and may be the same as the Z2500 or accessory/signal being controlled.  The relay outputs may be used to drive 2 additional sets of LEDs with the onboard supply, or an external supply for larger loads such as bulbs or accessories.
