KB392: DS64 - Example of a Yard Ladder and RR Crossing Blinking Signal

This article was last updated on Sept. 13, 2011, 6:43 p.m. | Print Article | Leave Feedback


This example is a small yard with a crossing signal at its entrance.

We will use independent turnout addresses to demonstrate the flexibility that the DS64 offers.

Here, route (track) 2 3 and 4 will activate the blinking light when set and the deactivation is done by resetting to route 1, the main line. The advantage of this setup is that you can easily do operating RR Crossing lights without the need for additional equipment for block detection.

The turnout output utilized for the RR crossing operation is simply integrated into the route setup.

In addition to the route setup, we will set OpSw 20 and 3 to closed to enable the “Blinking” effect for output 4 which we programmed to switch number 35 in the example above.
