Here's a handy wire management solution for popular stall motor switch machines! This is John Plocher's CMRI-RJ45 board with an 8-Position Edge Card Connector mounted in the Molex Pads. There are pads on each line for a resistors (you must cut the shorting trace with a hobby knife or Cut off Wheel). This allows you to insert resistance in series with the Tortoise-by-Ciruitron switch machine to slow it down, or insert a limiting resistor in series with the switched leads on a contact for an LED switch position indicator. An optional 3.5mm or 0.100 terminal block can be installed to bring out the frog contacts, and the RJ45 can be used to bring the motor leads and one or both contacts back to a central location using CAT5 cables.
We offer this board either a bare board (panel of 6) or assembled with an RJ45 and 8 position Edge Connector. Please contact us if you need a custom configuration.
You can get the Cad Files from John's sp-coast website.
