This GOLD kit contains all our most popular DCC Turntable products into one order with a new Screen Controller – providing you with means to index your turntable from DCC or directly with the controller. Can be used with OO or N gauge Model Railways. This kit features a direct mount plate which mounts directly below the TurnTable using 40mm stand-offs with PCB mounting holes.
The GOLD kit contains a 1.8 deg stepper motor and a TMC2208 Super Silent Stepper Driver combined to give 3200 steps per revolution providing much finer positioning of the bridge to the index tracks and incredibly silent operation. The fine controlled movement is ideal for N gauge where the track is much smaller.
The Turntable Indexing is controlled using the New Screen and rotary Encoder , PLUS from your DCC Command Station as a DCC Accessory addresses. The screen allows you to control and CONFIGURE in real time allowing easy setup and control. Configuration is stored on an external eeprom included in the kit. The configuration can also be easily configured via an SD Card – amend the configuration on your home PC, pop the card back in the controller and reset for the updated index configuration to be applied. Its Easy and Fast.
The screen is enclosed in a FREE 3d printed enclosure ( may appear slightly different to images ) and upon request can be made in any colour* ( We do not charge for the case )
The Kit is built to order so please allow up to 21 days from ordering to dispatch.
