Remote Tortoise Mount

The CIRCUITRON Remote Tortoise™
Mount consists of a molded base mechanism to which the Tortoise™ (not included) is mounted.  An adjustable lever arm is fastened onto the Tortoise™ output and drives a stainless steel wire inside a flexible teflon tube, much like a sub-miniature choke cable.  This thin wire attaches to a compact actuator mechanism and is mounted beneath the turnout.  It includes a spring wire and brass tube to transmit the motion to the points above.  The mounting bracket (with Tortoise™) may be secured in any position and up to 18” away from the turnout points—even above the layout inside a structure, if desired.  The points actuating mechanism requires 1/2” clearance under the turnout sub-roadbed.  The RTM is fully adjustable for all scales and brands of turnouts.
