Signal Controllers for Dapol Semaphore Signals
Four different Signal Controllers for use with the Dapol Semaphore Signals
SC3 - For Original Dapol Semaphore Signals
The SC3 controls one or two Original Dual N or OO gauge motorised Dapol semaphore signals by DCC - it also incorporates a regulator so that no other power supply is required.
Very easy to set up, just choose the accessory address for the signal, press the Learn button on the SC3 and send a < or > command from the controller whichever one you want to set the semaphore in that position. Thats it! The SC3 is now programmed to that address and will always control the signal in the same way (unless you ever reprogram)
Each signal can be given a separate DCC address with their position controlled by the SC3 which also remembers that position.
Signals connect directly using the standard prefitted wires & no modification or separate power supply is required.
SC300 - For Original Dapol Semaphore Signals
SC300 - Dual Dapol + Track sensor & switch inputs
Like the SC3, the SC300 powers and controls Two Original Dapol semaphore signals directly from a DCC track or bus.
However, the SC300 has inputs for the new Track Sensors allowing Semaphore signals to operate automatically when Trains are sensed on the track!
SC4 - For New Dapol Servo Semaphore Signals
The SC4 is specifically designed to power and control the new Dapol Servo controlled signals which have three wire inputs for each signal. An SC4 can control one, two or a twin head (e.g. Bracket) servo signal and each can easily be assigned any DCC accessory address & run the two arms independently or together in Home-Distant pairs. It also incorporates a regulated power supply to provide a stable safe voltage for the signals from the standard DCC track supply.
Just connect the 2 power wires and 3 switch wires from the Dapol signal directly to the screw terminals of the controller and then 2 wires from the controller to the nearest piece of DCC powered track or the controller - thats it! No separate power supply or wiring required.
Substitute for Dapol 4A-001-002
Easy and quick to connect, use and setup using One-Touch DCC.
Note that it is very important to only connect Dapol Servo Signals control wires to 'volt free' controllers otherwise permanent damage may result. The SC4 and SC400 have been designed specifically to power and control the new Dapol Servo type OO bracket and O gauge semaphore signals and feature safe optically isolated volt free contacts and a regulated protected power output.
SC400 - For New Dapol Servo Semaphore Signals
SC400 - New Dapol Semaphore Dual Servo Signal Controller with Track sensor inputs
The SC400 is specifically designed to power and control the new Dapol Servo controlled signals which have three wire inputs for each signal. An SC400 can control one, two or a twin head (e.g. Bracket) servo signal and each can easily be assigned any DCC accessory address & run the two arms independently or together in Home-Distant pairs. It also incorporates a regulated power supply to provide a stable safe voltage for the signals from the standard DCC track supply. It has inputs for Track Sensors allowing the Semaphore Signals to operate automatically when trains are sensed on the track!
The SC400 is also Layout Link compatable and may be linked to Mimic Switches and Mimic Lights so that Dapol Semaphore signals can be controlled and monitored from a Mimic panel. The Track sensor and Mimic switch features can be used on analogue DC as well as digital DCC layouts.

New Dapol Motorised Water Tower
There are several Train-Tech products which are ideal for controlling the Dapol Motorised Water Tower. Each allow control by DCC accessory commands and some enable the tower to move automatically when a train goes over a Track Sensor. Each of these products has dual controllers so that you can also control one other device as well as the Water Tower.
