BA-1-IR Block Animator Features:
- BA-1/BA-1-IR for controlling searchlight (2-lead or 3-lead bipolar LEDs) or 3-light (G,Y,R) LED-based signals wired with a common anode (positive) such as those from Tomar, NJ International, Oregon Rail Supply, and BLMA (#4025, 4030, 4031, 4035, 4036, 4037, 4038, 4039)
- “TrueLens” and selectable yellow hue for searchlight signals; TrueLens duplicates the prototype signal behavior of having the signal BRIEFLY show yellow when it transitions from Clear (green) to Stop (red).
- Current limiting resistors included
- Signal aspects sequenced prototypically based on direction of travel
- Yellow delay (i.e. when train leaves the “next block”) is selectable (10 or 30 seconds)
- Approach Lighting capable (signal is dark until train approaches!)
- Correct aspects will be shown even if a train covers a sensor and then backs up, or if a train stops between sensors.
- Requires no modification to track wiring or rolling stock
- Each sensor has its own sensitivity adjustment and the Block Animator provides a setup mode for making the adjustment process easier
- Photocell versions powered from AC or DC – draws about 60mA!
- Infrared versions (-IR) powered from 7-9V AC or 9-12V DC (such as our WT1A together with our 12VPSR); draws about 360mA (or more when used with bulb-type signals)
- Solid State Design (1 year limited warranty)
