Up A Level

Ideal for yards, sidings and anywhere else you don't need a motor- driven turnout controller. These are small and very easy to install. Attach them to the benchwork under the turnout, then use our FLEX LINK  system to connect the Blue Point™ to the fascia knob. The Blue Point™ includes two sets of electrical contacts-rated at 5 amps.

We've also had a number of questions about using the Blue Points under 2" thick foam. The simple answer is yes, they work great. The tension and throw adjustment slider provides more than enough range to handle long runs of spring wire. We include .032" diameter spring steel wire with the product, which is quite rigid. You can also slip a brass tube over wire that extends through the foam to provide more power at the throw bar, if needed.

Blue Point™ Turnout Control is designed to operate turnouts in scales from N through O. The electrical contacts are double pole, double throw (DPDT) rated at 5 amps, so they have plenty of capacity to power a frog or just about anything else you'll want to drive.

DPDT Switch Diagram

The picture on the right has two diagrams. The left diagram shows the numbering of the contacts (viewed from below), while the right diagram shows how these contacts are arranged electrically. When the switch is in one position, contact 5 is connected to contact 4, and contact 2 is connected to contact 1. Move the switch to the other position and now 5 is connected to 6 and 2 is connected to 3.

Typical DCC-Friendly Turnout Wiring

And finally, here is a typical wiring diagram for a powered frog found on DCC-friendly turnouts:

Note: This is a view from above, which is why the numbers are in a different order from the diagrams above (they are views of the bottom).

There are a number of different designs for tunouts, with the wiring being a little different for some of the tunouts. You can find a lot more information about the different turnouts at this link: Wiring Turnouts.
