RL1 Relay Controller
This is a twin channel Relay Controller which can switch high power loads using controls from track Sensors, Mimic Switches, Sensor Signals and DCC accessory commands.
Example applications include:
• Start a coal loading conveyor when the train is in position
• Remote control of models from the DCC controller
• Activate a turntable when a train passes a Track Sensor
• Boost Track Sensor outputs to control motors, solenoids, lamps etc.

The RL1 works on analogue or digital layouts and is powered directly by DCC or 12-16 Volts smooth DC. When on digital the relays can also be controlled by DCC accessory addresses which are easily set up using One-Touch DCC. Relays are a great way to switch on and off relatively high power devices such as motors and solenoids because they act like a switch contact and so are safely electrically isolated from other signals. The Relay Controller incorporates two separate relays, each with single pole changeover contacts which can switch up to 3 amps at 24 volts AC or DC, so can be used to control DC or AC models, including battery models, Faller kits, etc.
