Re: Atlas Switches

I've been using a capacitive discharge unit for 10 years and haven't had anyone burn up one of my switch machines since I started using it. It's just a fancy name for a circuit/board that sits between the switches and the solenoids and fires a quick burst of voltage when the switch is pressed. It then removes voltage and won't "fire" again until the switch is released and pressed again. You can build your own for less than $10 or buy one for under $40. One CDU will operate many solenoids so you don't have to buy/build one for each turnout.
Hope this helps!
