Use the APTC to Automate a train display and/or just use it on your track powered layout as a manual speed control with automated station stops. This versatile 10 amp controller will control trains any way you want to.
Many of you use our Battery Conversion Modules to charge your battery pack in place, in the train. There may be occasions when you need to charge one or more packs on the bench. Perhaps you will need to battery swap during an exceptionally long operating session or open house.
We use a charging cable adapter in-house for that purpose, and it occurred to us that many of your may have the same need.
Standardize your battery connections using our Battery Connectors. We always put the male connector on the battery and the female on the Battery Conversion Module battery input. To charge on the bench, plug your charger into the jack on the adapter cable, and the battery pack into the other end.
This semi-automated controller is used by many for Back 'n Forth Trolley operations. (The only one of its kind for battery power, that we know of anyway). To make the control flexible for all users, one track magnet would cause an automated station stop, and two magnets in a row would cause a change of direction after the stop.
We have now added a user programmable option to run Back 'n Forth Trolleys, with no intermediate station stops, using just one track magnet at each end of the track.
And you can still trigger sounds via a switch contact or just loop the sound clip continuously if you like.
Now, yet another way to activate your Sound Clip Module. Keep it quite until a visitor approaches your scene. We now have a little motion detector, only 1/2" in diameter, that can be hidden behind a building window, or mounted wherever convenient.
