A model railway point and signal actuator system with unique features - a very small motor driven actuator, automatic self calibration of point throw range, and an alarm if there is a fault or obstruction. Signal movement has variable bounce. Very simple to use and set up within seconds.

Designed in the UK by a railway modeller, the Minx system has some some unique features. The motor driven actuator is ideally mounted on top of the baseboard, being prototypical size in O Gauge and the size of a large UK postage stamp. The auto calibration of point throw range is done in seconds by pushing one button on the controller, which also contains remote switching and two relays for live frog and an auxiliary. an alarm sounds if the point fails to operate over the calibrated range and the relays also lock out, allowing interlocking of point and signal operation. Signal movement is set between the two arm positions, with a variable bounce facility.
The website has a demonstration video showing how to install the system and photos of how the actuator can be mounted underneath a signal, facilitating removal as a unit to avoid damage. There are also photos of customers installations and you can use a credit or debit card to order the system via PayPal. If you operate DCC, we sell our own decoder that simply plugs into the Minx controller.
We have sold this system worldwide for nearly 3 years and have over 1000 customers, who keep on coming back for more!
