Sophisticated operation on layouts on DC power usually needs more than one throttle. Each block section of track can connect to more than one throttle, and your locomotives are no longer limited to one-at-a-time movements.
Cab Selectors let Touch Toggles choose power from 2 or 4 sources to a block. All block selections are exclusive, with only one cab controller showing green at any time, and while disconnected sources show red.
Our two output Cab Selector can be operated using 2 or 3 Touch Toggles. Selectors can show A and B; or A, B, and off.
Our four output Cab selector connect up to 4 Touch Toggles and 4 outputs. Touching an active cab selector toggle will turn all cabs off, and show an all four lights red indication. Of course four output Cab selectors can operate with only three cabs as well, and the fourth location can be used to represent “Off”, or simply not have a fourth Toggle.
The typical installation connects a Cab Selector directly to a two or four output Real-Switch Relay Base. The power supplies are connected, after any direction controls, to a common rail block wiring arrangement. Two rail isolation systems can be used, but requires more equipment.
