    I'm looking for the wiring schematics for the old " GB Electronics " turn out motor control board. It has 16 tabs for the connections ! Any help would certainly be appreciated ! [​IMG]

    Hi Straight-track,

    Welcome to The Gauge!

    I am not entirely sure if I know what you are talking about... Is this the turnout controller with 2 buttons for each turnout? Comes in 4, 8, or 16?

    If yes, you wire the common (usually black, in Atlas solenoid switch-machine terms) to the centre "rail", and then wire the red to one button, and the green to the matching button. What this board amounts to is a much neater set of momentary contact switches. More compact than the corresponding set of Atlas switches.

    Mason Jar, The GB electronics controller board in question measures 2 " x 3 3/4 " with a small motor mounted on it that pushes & pulls a sliding smaller board of contacts changing the connections of the side mounted 2 sets of 8 terminals. Thanks for the resonse though. I think these go back a few years.

    Straight,

    Can you put up a picture or a link? There are some real electronics gurus here who might be able to answer your question...
