Circuits4Tracks :: All Scales :: Electronics

The Traverser

MSRP: $43.99

Circuits4Tracks is releasing a new product, The Traverser, on May 12, 2014. The Traverser is a circuit that will automatically operate a DC locomotive back and forth over a stretch of track, with a user-configurable stop at each end. One use for this is to operate a trolley line in a town on a larger layout. The Traverser requires the track to be divided into at least four blocks with detection on two blocks on each end of the line. Block detection inputs need an active low source, such as the Quad Occupancy Detector from Circuits4Tracks. The Traverser is priced at $43.99 as a ready-to-use unit, or for $26.99 as a board and parts kit that you assemble yourself. A pre-release ordering special will be announced around May 1.
