Setting it up couldn't be
easier. Simply connect the TT300 Digital Point Motor to the programming
track and assign a value to CV1. This is the point motor address. Then using
your DCC controller set up the point at that address in the usual way. You
can add the point to a route or switch it individually as required.
So how does this product stack
up against other available solutions?
A similar concept to the Traintronics TT300 Digital Point Motor
is the Viessmann 4554 switch
motor that also incorporates an accessory decoder and can be used on DC or DCC
layouts ( as well as Märklin / Motorola, NMRA-DCC und Märklin Systems). The Viessmann
4554 switch motor sits above the baseboards next to the point and would work with modern
layouts as it resembles a modern switch box. It wouldn't really work for
classic layouts unless you somehow hid the mechanism. The
manufacturer price for the Viessmann 4554 switch motor is £32.59.
And how does the price work
out with the built-in DCC decoder compared to conventional point motors and
an external accessory decoder?
The Tillig 86112 is a standard
point slow-action motor. The manufacturer price for the Tillig 86112 is £13.81.
The Lenz LS150 is a common DCC
decoder with 6 outputs. The manufacturer price for the
Lenz LS150 is £40.99.
So you may think that a
built-in decoder might me an expensive option. The table above shows that Traintronics TT300 Digital Point Motor
is a cheaper option even for 6 point motors, but it is much cheaper if you
only need a few points.
