We made one more improvement to our Precision Detectors that I really appreciate. As many of you know, you can adjust the precise range of the sensor but turning the trim potentiometer screw can be a challenge. Leaning over the layout or trying to see what you are doing when the detector is facing the other way was difficult.
THE WAY IT WORKS:
Turn the range screw all the way to zero and then put the detector back into the bracket/holder.
Next, place any rail car on the track where you want the detection to take place. To set the range without the screwdriver, simply press and hold the pushbutton for about 8 seconds. That will activate a 10 second countdown timer. After 10 seconds, the board automatically takes a set of range measurements and sets the detect zone automatically.
If you want to adjust the range manual, simply move the screw adjustment away from zero to the setting you want.
