The Track Sensor incorporates an infrared sensor which detects a train going over it and the output can be used to control and display occupancy for other products in the Layout Link Family - this new Plus version also has additional outputs for direct connection to LEDs and other non-Layout Link items and is supplied with an LED and comprehensive instructions.
A Track Sensor is located next to the track and features a built in infrared sensor which senses a train passing and easily links to and controls a range of Layout Link products using just a single wire which plugs in - no soldering required.
Note: The original ST1 Track Sensor has been superseded by this ST10 which does all ST1 functions plus 4 additional outputs for LED train, occupancy, spark effects etc.
Although the ST10 is designed to just clip or wire into OO/HO track, it can also be used with N Gauge track. To achive this, a small piece of sleeper needs to be cut away from the track to allow the sensor to sit near the rails.
