Hi Everyone, Has anyone wired a DCC Concepts Analogue Point Motor with a ESU Switch Pilot before, i'm sure someone has [1f642]

Could you tell me how you did this?


Cheers

Ian

(Option 1)
Follow ESU's instructions for the CV settings (it needs to have a long throw time), and set it up it as a stall motor as per the ESU instructions. 

You will also need our SDC adapters - these connect directly to the standard 3-wire solenoid connections. (They convert the output to a reversing DC)

(Option 2)
ALTERNATELY you will need to use the ESU switch pilot extensions and wire them ad per the switchpilot manual page 12 part 6.6.2

(Option 3)
Far better of course -  to control them with an AD series accessory decoder designed to do the job properly..


It is designed for use with this type of motor, whereas the ESU is not. It will give you easy, direct connections, It will be more more economical, It has more features, is much easier to set up and it will work better than using an ESU decoder which is fundamentally designed for solenoid use.

You will also have access to far better local help, backup and customer service.

Hmm, i may as well throw the Analogue Point Motor in the Bin and buy a DIP version, i was trying to use existing stock to find a solution to  a space constraint.

Steve,

Thanks that looks exactly what i want/need to do 🙂 i have been searching the forums for this but couldn't find it. Standardisation is what this hobby needs.

The AD series I mentioned are the latest decoders with added features - BUT If its only one or two - for space issues etc... look at the AD1-HP

https://www.dccconcepts.com/product/cobalt-ip-dcc-decoder-stall-motor-drive-type-1-outputhigh-power/

Its dead cheap at 8.95 and easy to use. It fits into the side of the motor recess with double sided tape, effectively making it a digital motor.
