8th August 2017: Coming Soon...

Coming Soon...

Two weeks ago, I introduced the new Points Master board, with the aim of having it ready for sale last week. At the moment, I have a small batch of these boards constructed and am waiting on the delivery of more components before completing another batch. The instructions, which will be much shorter than for the previous version due to the shallower learning curve with this model, are almost complete.

On the firmware side, there are just a few pieces of testing left to complete. Servo movement is very smooth thanks to an improved algorithm and I'm making sure that it works well for fast actions like signals and slower actions like level crossing gates. A redesigned power supply eliminates servo 'jitter' while reducing the power load on the DCC controller.

The new version will also feature 'programming on the main' functionality. This will allow for more convenient programming of CVs with the unit in situ on a layout and without having to reconnect wires. The angular range and speed will be configurable per servo output. The speed can also be configured for all servos simultaneously by writing to an additional CV.
