I want to use Tortoise switches with the Atlas non-derailing board. I made a mock up on a small piece of plywood with an Atlas switch, the non-derail board, a Tortoise switch motor, and the provided Atlas switch push button. I've wired up everything according to this schematic from Atlas, http://download.atlasrr.com/pdfs/TORTOISEREV1.pdf , using a 16 VAC transformer to power everything including the non derail board. The Tortoise switch motor throws both directions, both with the push button switch and running a box car over the insulated rails. The issue I have is an audible hum from the Tortoise that I would like to see if I can get rid of, as I imagine 20 plus of these would be annoying. A search came up with a possible solution of using a capacitor after the diode but I am unsure how to apply that. Link to that discussion also provided with a diagram near the bottom. Does anyone have any ideas with a possible simple solution to this?
Also, I want to use J2 on the non derail board to power the closure rails since I'm using J5 for the Tortoise. Is there anything that needs to be done or is that relay already active and activated from J1?
