Hi guys. I'm getting ready to buy some Ross switches as construction begins on the layout. I'm looking for some experiences on the DZ1000. I've never had nice swtiches like this with command control capabilities so I was hoping the OGR forum could tell me where this plan falls short. The speed of the throw and the clack isn't really of concern to me. The sound of the trains and the mills on the layout will probably drown that out.
My plan is to mount the machines under the table and connect them to some daisy chained MTH AIU's. Then I would like to use three tablets placed along the table (it's a long layout with a north, middle, and south yard) to control the switches with the DCS app. It seems too simple. Am I missing something for that part?
There are a lot of switches so I think toggles will end up crowding the layout. There are, however, two places that I would like to have the option to use a toggle switch mounted at the layout. Can I have my cake and eat it too? Can I use the AIU with the app on the tablet while also being wired to the toggle?
My other question is about the AIU. Do the accessory terminals work for switches too? The manual reads like that but I wanted to make sure.
