Insulated Rail Relay Based Sensor

Correct.  Note that the two interconnecting wires carry DC voltage so polarity is important.  RTR12 makes this clear with his use of the Red wire for DC+ and Black wire for DC-.  On the ITSD side they go exactly as he shows.  The relay board presumably will be as pictured, but in any event the white label "VCC" gets positive or DC+ (Red).

Since you've already installed the relay, I suggest you simply leave it in place and attach the red and black wires under the board to the same two pads.  Your application is somewhat unique in that the external relay triggers/closes for at most 1/2 sec.  This is materially different than having both relays closing for many seconds or indefinitely if the train stops on the insulated rail section.

Depends on what you're switching.  For most locomotives it certainly should.  For post-war, you probably won't be switching multiple locomotives on the same track, so I don't see it being a problem.

Explain how this is not hijacking the thread?

Perhaps you should start your own thread.

GRJ- I will there were a few here that were looking for a heavier relay and just posted here, I figured they get the email and read the reply rather than missing it in a new forum post which I will be doing.

 

- Don't mean to walk on anyone's toes here. Just trying to help those looking for a heavier relay. My apologies for the brief hijack

and less $$ to boot.

To late I have already ordered 132102329553, I am sure10s max will be fine for what I want to do.
The board has shipped, delivery is in a couple weeks.
I'll rig it up and report back when I have it

as promised report when implemented.  It works great.

 

lights

this first picture shows how it is hooked up.  When I built the sensor board I did not populate the jumper header or the relay. These lights are running on 14V AC, on on the NC side, one on the NO side

This video shows it working with the lights.  you can see that the NC light stays on, with a quick switch to the NC as the sensor is triggered.

video shows house working perfectly

 

Thanks alot guys

Looks Great, I know down the road I will try something like that for me. You are right about one thing Stan is a great help here on the forum!

I just received some additional parts for the kits, so I have a few sets if anyone is still looking.  I was totally out of the first round of parts, had to wait a spell...
