This looks interesting

I have a use for it, l believe.
Imagine an 'X', running 2 railcars as if [1] branch to platform to main line, [2] main to bay  to branch, their services crossing in the station, so on a continuous shuttle service. This is fully achievable on Buchshee, leaving the operator to shunt the yard, without interrupting the passenger service.
Fully automated using an ABC module, Zen Black decoders in the railcars, and Irdots on the 4 legs to change the points appropriately.
Computer was down yesterday [mega-reboot by Microsoft], so it was 3a.m. before l could order online.
Mick, l reckon it's the absolute ticket!!
Am impatient, so many ideas!!!
Ahjay,
I reckon that it's a winner.
Congrats to you all at Settle.

Yep... A really good application that will work well. In fact something similar is in part 2 of the REX newsletter - due to be released in a week or so

A very good piece of kit there im sure many will make use of. Looking at the newsletter i assume from what i am reading the unit is split in 2 does that mean that the 2 sets of terminals each side work in unison and are not independently switched? Therefore if say 2 servos were connected to each of the terminals on one side  they would operate the same when that side of the unit was switched i assume by dcc address?

Rex can work as one unit with 4x SDPDT contact sets OR as or two independent devices, each with 2x SPDT contact sets. The two sets of contacts on each side work in unison...

Switching is, as explained in the newsletter, done via the 3 switching terminals. It can be NO or NC, It can also be on/off or pulse on, pulse off (toggled). REX itself is not a DCC device although it can of course be switched by a DCC accessory decoder or similar.

Hi Settle,
I am planning on using basic TCRT5000 ir detector components (no PCb or resistors supplied).
What is the best circuit solution for my route  X, please? (Mick has track plan).
As recommended, a 5v feed will be supplied.
I feel that Rex will render the Heatcote (or similar) irdot circuitry superfluous.
Thanks in advance,
Pete

I think its not that simple Pete. 

You still need something to decide relative sensitivity and trigger point between transmitter and receiver of the IR pair.

take a look here for some interesting circuits. Have fun
