Hi guys!

I am building a layout and I am very happy with my Cobalt SS motors.

While setting them up, I noticed there is an interference with the Walthers turntable that causes its main track to move, as if the selection of specific Cobalt turnout (in this case #14) meant the selection of a specific position in the turntable (in this case it corresponds to track position #11).

This problem does not occur when I select the turnouts controlled by  ESU's Switch Pilot Servo.

Is there a way to fix this anomaly? Any suggestions?
I am using Roco's black Z21 digital station.

Kind regards,

Pierre

Switch pilot servo is a servo controller, not a turnout controller.

Try changing the number of the turnout. Does it still happen? The offset of 3 in the number is also interesting - it says the TT is set up using a form of accessory decoder that is primarily EU compatible.

Cobalt is 100% standards compatible...

As another simple test also try changing track numbers allocated to the turntable... does it still happen or is it a problem only with specific TT addresses?

I will ask our guys to see if we can see the same issue. We have not previously seen it with the digital turntables we have but we can, when we can get time on a bench, set up the Heljan to try to mimic it becase AFAIK the walthers is made by Heljan.

Thank you for your fast reply.

I will follow your suggestion and change the track numbers in order to avoid all possible clashes.

I will need to digitaze all my turnouts first (so far 48 of them have been digitized and there are 20 left) and will eventually renumber the tracks.
I will definitely keep you posted.

By the way, do you know when the Cobalt SS will be available again? It has been a while since they were out of stock and many fellow modelers from Italy are looking for them.

Kind regards,

Pierre
