Sample signals controlled by SC1s

North American signals

Signalist SC1

The Signalist SC1 signal mast controller comes with built in configurations for most North American railroads and can be easily configured for any specific location. Simple to set up you can be up and running in minutes with just a single CV to configure the mast type and simple wiring direct to the signal LEDs and DCC track supply. With built in aspect tables and flashing the SC1 offloads much of the processing that would normally be done by your control system and logic.

Brightness and searchlight colour can be adjusted by changing CV settings with 65 thousand shades of yellow and 16 million shades of Lunar White possible. Once set colour and brightness will remain fixed regardless of power supply voltage.

The SC1 will connect to wires as thin as 38SWG so there is no problem hiding the wiring within the signal mast and with current control on board the SC1, series current limiting resistors are eliminated making wiring even simpler.

Powered by the DCC track supply makes wiring the SC1 as straightforward as possible and the SC1 is small enough to be positioned under the baseboard adjacent to the signal.

While it is possible to connect any LED based signals to the SC1 and standard head definitions are predefined, the following North American railroads have specific mast configurations defined to make use of the SC1 as easy as possible for aspect signalling on multi-head signal masts:-

Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe (-1995)
Baltimore and Ohio
BNSF (1996-)
Burlington Northern (-1995)
Canada (CROR rules)
Chesapeake and Ohio
Norfolk Southern
Norfolk & Western (position lights and searchlights)
Seaboard System
Union Pacific

In addition a generic NORAC definition is provided for other NORAC member railroads which follow the NORAC rulebook.
