Servo motors from the radio control world are becoming popular to operate model railroad turnouts. The 9 to 11 gram sized servos are the popular size for this, with enough power and a great price point. Mounting the little servos is one of the trickiest parts of using them to run your railroad.
The updated design is the same only shorter than the one shown, and the servo arm is now mounted pointed pointed downward. This reduces the minimum installed height to about 2″ (46mm). The mounting pad is just about 1″ by 1-1/2″ (26mm by 36mm).
Our under-table style servo mounts let you install a 9 gram sized servo directly below the turnout throw rod. A stiff wire moves the turnout through a 3/8″ or larger hole in the track bed just like other popular switch machines.
The installation is entirely hidden. Mounting pads are small allowing close and compact installations.
Mounts are provided with a steel operator wire, servo mounting screws. Screws to attach the mount are left to the installer so they can be matched to your layouts construction. (#6 screws are about right.)
Our dirt clearing design prevents ballast and scenic materials from accumulating and fouling the mechanism.
Check out our Servo Well Mount for simple installing of a hidden mounting from above the table. No bending over!
Order any of our mounts individually or in a discounted 4 pack.
These mounts are perfect mates to our Servo Control Bases.
Important Note: Any servo motor MUST be operated by an electronic control signal (DC alone won’t do it). Servos can be easily and precisely controlled with our Servo Control Bases. The mounts will work with servos controlled by Arduinos, Tam Valley Depot systems, Iowa Scaled Engineering equipment, Digitrax, and others.
