Setting up DS54 for Standard Turnout Reporting
The creation of a feedback circuit for standard turnout reporting is simple.
Connect a normally open set of contracts attached to the switch machine, a normally open set of contacts of a micro switch monitoring the turnout throw arm, or the normally open contacts of a relay monitoring the switch machine to the common (green) and switch (red) wires to the desired DS54 output circuit.
The following two diagrams indicated the two most common switch machine configurations plus the contact configuration for turnout reporting.
Note: The location and type of contacts available for the switch input may vary in type and location. The following chart indicates the operating criteria and the CV Settings for standard turnout reporting.
