QUOTE (wiggy25 @ 11 Feb 2007, 22:09) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I use the NCE Powercab pro which will allow me to set routes, with sending just 1 address.

So the need to connect multiple points together is not required.

If your controller can't set routes then you can use the SMD82 8 way point decoder.
If your controller can program CV's then you can configure this decoder to set a route.
This is quite easy, when you've read the instructions a few times!!
It does work very well, it has an onboard CDU, the only thing is, it takes about 1 sec to fire each point as it's waiting for the CDU to 'recharge'

Manual here:-



I am another convert to the SMD82, with the CDU onboard it even allows pairs of points to be switched at the same time, from one output
. I have just bought it, so I am learning. I am moving points off Lenz 150 accessory decoders to this unit. It takes power from my main bus, out of a ZTC 550 booster, and control is from a ZTC 511. No more PSU for decoders, great!
The basics didn't didn't take long to learn. So far it seems to beat allcomers!
