Analogue Servo Control ASB
There is much to do about the use of servos. And that is not entirely unjustified because a servo is not only cheap but also reliable and energy efficient. But to operate a servo you need electronics, and that is the problem for many model railroaders. Programming a servo decoder is cumbersome and with an OC32 you are stuck with software. And what if you want to operate a servo manually because you do not control the layout using a computer.
There are manual servo controllers on the market and self-build is also possible, but none of them has anything that makes the ASB so unique. Below are the benefits that make the controller so unique:
- No computer required.
- Two servos that are easy to adjust to middle position, left, right and speed.
- Each servo can use its maximum result.
- Each servo has a relay switch on its middle position.
- Each relay has two potential-free changeover contacts for polarization or feedback
- Each servo can be switched with a switch
- Each servo can be controlled digitally with a switching decoder
The ASB can thus be used to manually operate a switch or signal, but also via a dcc decoder. The principle is simple via two contacts. One contact sends a signal and when it comes back via a switch, the servo switches to the next position. if the signal disappears again, it will return.
No more hassle, therefore, with decoders to be set, programming via a multimaus or central, never having the maximum result available .....
