FCB021RG Turtle Deluxe (w FC, jumpers and SNAPS),
The Turtle Stall Motor Driver and Accessory Decoder
The Turtle Stall Motor Driver and Accessory Decoder - Run a Tortoise with a TVD Fascia Controller or DCC
Drives stall motors including TortoiseTM as well as SwitchMasterTM, MP1, MP5 Switch Motors, CobaltTM and almost any other 6-12V geared motor.
Speed/Torque Adjustment - This allows you to set the speed of stall motors like the Tortoise or to use just about any 6-12 voltage motor as a stall motor by lowering the voltage to the point where they just move and hold the points.
Local Control and Indication - The Turtle has a port for a Tam Valley Depot Fascia Controller (see below) or a Barrett Hill Touch Triggers (available from Barrett Hill). Power with DCC or with 12-18VDC.
Remote DCC Control - The Turtle can be activated by DCC switch/accessory commands. Setting the address is simple. Press the Address button and then issue the switch command you want it to respond to in the future.
Local Lock Out - You can use a DCC command to lock out the local fascia controller. This allows you to use the Turtle on CTC controlled layouts where a central operator can control the access to a turnout.
Feedback - The S pin on the controller can be used for 5v logic feedback.
Relays - Need more contacts or isolated contacts? Add our 5V relay to the controller port (see below).
Arduino - You can use the Turtle with an Arduino. Send a 100ms pulse to toggle the state. You can read the port back to determine the state.
