is a cost effective LocoNet Occupancy Detector for 16 detection
know when detection sections of your layout are occupied.
in conjunction with one or two RX4 transponder detectors it
operates up to 8 transponding zones and operations mode read
is where on your layout!
BDL16 was released in 2000 and was replaced by BDL162 in 2002.
An update kit was available from BDL16 to BDL162. BDL162 was
replaced by BDL168 in 2004. No update kit was offerred because
the circuit board was completely re-engineered.
detection for 16 sections
•Outputs for LEDs to indicate local detection section occupancy
and zone power status on a panel mount display
•3 Amp capacity per detection section
•Transits Occupancy information over LocoNet
•Supports SuperSonic decoder operations
•Detects any powered locomotive
•Detects any un-powered rolling stock equipped with resistor
•Plug 'N Play with Digitrax DCC
•Configurable with most other DCC systems
•Automatically checks layout status when used in conjunction
with a computer
•Improved Rail Sync Sampling for reliable operation
•Transponding with the addition of one or two RX4 allows for
8 transponding sections
•Transponding decoders are detected by the RX4s and the information
is fed back to LocoNet
•Transponding allows you to read back CV values of decoders
equipped with transponders
Note: External power supply is needed. PS14 (sold separately)
or equivalent is recommended. Multiple BDL16 series detectors
can be powered from the same power supply as long as 100mA is
provided for each BDL16 series detector.
