Block Signalling CDU4C-FC Fast Charge CDU

BLOCKsignalling capacitor discharge units store up electricity in a capacitor. The electrical charge is released, on throwing a switch, as a burst of a much larger current than the transformer can supply directly. The CDU will also protect point motors from being burnt out by a fault in the switching circuit.

This CDU has four capacitors and is suitable for larger layouts.

  • Provides a high current pulse to operate points
  • Prevent points motor burn-out by limiting subsequent current
  • Prevents voltage fluctuations on the rest of the layout
  • Fast charging for quicker recovery time
  • Indication leds built-in to show the status
  • Versions available with amounts of storage to suit all sizes of layout
  • Fitted with Ready light (versions available with remote Ready Light)
