Using sensors to detect model trains.

Choosing which sensor to use to detect trains on your railway. DETECTING THE TRAINS. I think it might be fair to say that all 'assisted' layouts (that is all layouts not relying 100% on the mark-1 eyeball) need some form of sensing to feed back information to the central control, local controllers, mimic panels, or whatever. There is not much you can reliably achieve without any feedback, even ...

Railroad Signals - Building Your Model Railroad

Setting Up a Simple System of Operating Model Railroad Signals. First you have to decide whether you want to use track circuit detection or position sensor detection. Position sensor detection is a little easier to set up and is great for smaller layouts. Also, you won’t have to block off sections of your track as you do with the track ...

Model Railroad Train Detection Archives - Signalogic ...

Our Model railroad train detection products provide the model railroader a variety of means to detect trains. We have optical type detectors that work excellent for detecting trains at specific locations as well as the more prototypically correct current-based detection used on most North American railroads and elsewhere in the world. Photocell technology is the most economical option for ...

How infra red train detection works - Heathcote Electronics

The tips of the emitter and sensor are positioned level with the bottom of the sleepers. The two photos below show the two sides of the IRDOT -1. The left hand image shows the component side of the IRDOT-1. The LED is shown in the position as supplied before being wired to the control panel. The right hand image shows the detection side of the IRDOT-1. This side is fixed to the underside of ...

Detecting obstacle with IR Sensor and Arduino

· IR Sensor FC-51 Pin map of the FC-51 sensor. The sensor used in our demo is model FC-51. It is a cheap sensor easily available on the internet for less than 2$ but unfortunately we didn’t find the datasheet. In any case we will explain the operation of the related electronic circuit and subsequently implement some demo to test its functioning.

My Model Railroad: Arduino Crossing Gate Controller Project

Welcome to My HO Model Railroad Blog. Arduino Crossing Gate Controller Project I found some very slick Arduino IR Detectors on eBay at a very good price and I figured that they would be worth the investment of 45¢ to play with, 10 for $ They turned out to be very good for under the track type obstacle detectors. So good I decided to give Geoff Bunza’s Crossing Gate Controller a shot ...

IR Train Detector - trainelectronics

The IR beam is projected across the track towards an open area. The IR emitter and detector are shielded from one another so that no IR can go directly from the emitter to the detector. The detector "sees" IR only when an object, like a train, passes close by and reflects IR back to the detector. Circuit Design

Model Railroad Crossing Gates

In either case, the circuit board can then be activated by one of the sensor units (photocell, infrared or magnetic reed switch) described in the page on train signals. When the sensor picks up the presence of a train approaching the railroad crossing, it activates the circuit board, which then causes the lights on the crossbuck to flash in an alternating manner. Operating crossbucks and ...

Per's model train identification system - Per's model railroad

Per's Model Train recognition system. Introduction I'm working on an infrared based model train recognition system. This system is intended to be used instead of the other available feedback methods. The main advantage with my IR based system is that it gives an individual identification of each train, which is useful on computer controlled layouts. I also believe this system will be very ...

Track Sensors | model railroad electronics

· However, the sensor is "active/on" only when something is in front of it. Once the train passed (or sensed the space between cars) the IR sensor is off. So one sensor controlling one relay will not work. However you could try 2 IR sensors for each turnout route and a "latching" DPDT relay like: PB1080CT-ND RELAY GEN PURPOSE DPDT 2A ...
