Our Three Way Switch Adapter is a small plug in unit that uses two Toggles to control the two switch machines installed on a three way switch in a logical manner. It will work with any of our control bases, so it will operate with just about any kind of turnout motors.
This new adapter manages the order of point movements to make the route selection clear, and prevent damage to both the switch and the trains. It operates the points in the right order so they don’t ever “clash” or contradict routes with each other.
This adapter can be used with any type of Toggle indication. Single light Toggles present two color changing dots, and two light red/green toggles show four dot locations, with the outer red dots indicating a turning situation.
Operation is quite intuitive. Tapping the left Touch Toggle will move the route to the left, and the right Touch Toggle moves the route to the right. Tapping twice on either left or right will always move the route all the way left or right. The indication is Red-Green for the left route, Green-Green for the center route, and Green-Red for the right route. (The Red-Red position that could possibly put a train on the ground, is never allowed.)
This adapter just plugs in, between the Toggles and the Base. Installation couldn’t be easier…
Note: If you look very closely at the Touch Toggle LEDs while connected to the Three Way Switch Adapter you will sometimes see the dark LED very dimly blinking. This is normal, a result of very short tests done to see if the Toggle has been touched. This effect is not visible through a diffuser or paper, but can be surprising if it is unexpected.
