BDL168 BDL168 LocoNet Occupancy Detector

The BDL168 is a cost effective LocoNet Occupancy Detector for 16 detection sections.

Lets you know when detection sections of your layout are occupied.

When used in conjunction with one or two RX4 transponder detectors it operates up to 8 transponding zones and operations mode read back.

Features

  • Occupancy detection for 16 sections
  • Outputs for LEDs to indicate local detection section occupancy and zone power status on a panel mount display
  • 3 Amp capacity per detection section
  • Transits Occupancy information over LocoNet
  • Supports SuperSonic decoder operations
  • Detects any powered locomotive
  • Detects any un-powered rolling stock equipped with resistor wheel sets
  • Plug 'N Play with Digitrax DCC
  • Configurable with most other DCC systems
  • Automatically checks layout status when used in conjunction with a computer
  • Improved Rail Sync Sampling for reliable operation
  • Transponding with the addition of one or two RX4 allows for 8 transponding sections
  • Transponding decoders are detected by the RX4s and the information is fed back to LocoNet
  • Transponding allows you to read back CV values of decoders equipped with transponders

For Use With:

  • RD2 Remote Sensing Diodes to set up remote sensing locations
  • RX4s to add transponding

Note: External power supply is needed. PS14 (sold separately) or equivalent is recommended. Multiple BDL16 series detectors can be powered from the same power supply as long as 100mA is provided for each BDL16 series detector.

BD4 BD4 Occupancy Detector

When used in conjunction with the DS64 or SE8C the BD4 provides LocoNet detection for 4 occupancy detection sections.

BD4 lets you know which detection sections of your layout are occupied by locos and rolling stock.

Features

  • Cost Effective occupancy detection for 4 detection sections
  • Outputs for panel mounted LEDs to display occupancy
  • Detects any powered locomotive
  • Detects un-powered rolling stock equipped with resistor wheel sets
  • Transmits occupancy information to your LocoNet System using DS64 or SE8C (sold separately)
  • Connects to LocoNet via your DS64 or SE8C stationary decoders to transmit occupancy information to your LocoNet system (also works with DS54s (discontinued))
  • Anti-Chatter Filter for Reliable occupancy detection
  • 5 Amps Peak, 3 Amp continuous capacity per detection section

For Use With:

  • DS64 OR SE8C

Current Rating-Motor:

  • 3.0 Amps continuous (5.0 Amps peak)

NOTE: Not recommended for layouts using "supersonic" decoders unless the "supersonic" feature is turned off in all decoders.

RD2 RD2 Remote Sensing Diodes

RD2 Remote Sensing Diodes for BDL16 series occupancy detectors.

Remote sensing of 2 detection sections. Eliminates the need for long runs of heavy gauge wire between the BDL168, BDL16 & BDL162 and remotely located track sections.

For Use With:

  • BDL168 and other BDL16 series detectors

RX4 RX4 4-Zone Transponding Receiver

The RX4 is a 4 zone transponder detector for use with Digitrax occupancy detection systems. The RX4 enables you to not only see what blocks are occupied but also identifies what is there.

Features

  • Know the layout zone location of transponder-equipped locos and rolling rolling stock
  • Each RX4 handles 4 transponding zones
  • Low current pulses wont interfere with DCC decoders or other track signals
  • Can be used in conjunction with other means of occupancy detection to customize your layout's feedback system
  • Works with most DCC compatible systems
  • Can be adapted to work with other command control systems as well
  • Location and identification information is updated continuously on LocoNet
  • Location Information can be configured to be displayed on a track diagram
  • No modification of existing equipment required, just add the transponding components and you're ready to go
  • More features than any other method of "bi-directional" communication

Note: RX4s must be used in conjunction with a Digitrax BDL16 series occupancy detector to function.
