Servo Points Actuator


Servo Points Actuator
Servos for model making can also be used for completely different purposes besides model airplanes, boats and cars. As an example, here a servo is used to operate a set of points for a model railway system. The points are directly actuated by a length of steel wire connected to the servo arm, and they move quietly and smoothly, so the illusion is no longer spoiled by that irritating click-clack sound. The voltage on the point tongues and nose is also switched over by the servo.
