Latching Reed Switch If you bring one pole of a permanent magnet near the reed switch the contacts within the glass tube come together and current flows.  If you carefully remove the magnet the contacts will stay together and your LEDs or whatever is connected to the switch will stay on.  To turn the switch off turn the magnet over and bring the other pole near the switch.  The contacts will relax and separate breaking the circuit..  £3.00

DC Power Distribution Board. There is a set of Input Terminals and a set of extension terminals for the next Distribution Board. The output consists of 18 Positive terminals and 18 negative terminals. The board has a Power ON indicator, & 6 fixing positions (M3). Each board has a position to record the voltage, and the board No. The boards can be used for any voltage up to 230vAC, and up to 15 Amps per Input terminal.  

Length: 106mm


Width; 40mm


Height: 12mm

Normally Open Reed Switch

£1.50

SWITCHABLE DISTRIBUTION BOARD. The Input is via a 2.5mm DC socket or screw terminal block and can be any DC voltage up to 48v or a DCC voltage. There is a Main ON/OFF switch behind the Input terminal Block which isolates both the Positive and Negative Input feeds. The Input then passes through a 5 Amp fuse to feed the outputs and light the 'ON' LED. The ON Led is Tricolour so will indicate that the input is +- DC (Green), if connected the wrong way around -+ (Red) or DCC (Orange). This LED is after the fuse so will go out if the fuse blows.

The board has 6 individually switched outputs, each output can accept a load of up to 3 Amps and has an ON LED indicator.

Each Output has an ON/OFF switch which isolates both the Positive & Negative lines or in the case of DCC both lines. The LED is Green for ON or not illuminated for OFF.

The output at the far right of the board is a switched output directly from the main switch.

The Board has 4 fixing holes of 4mm so will accept screws or plastic PCB pillars.


This Distribution Board can be used for controlling individual lighting circuits on your layout, or controlling power to sections of the layout.

Board Dimensions:

Length:120mm x Width: 32mm x Height: 26mm


Price: £18.50

6 x 3way Screw Terminal Junction Board

This is an 18 way terminal block which can be broken down into multiples of 3.

Each 3 way section has 3 IN screw terminals, and 3 OUT terminals. The terminals and the board are rated at 10 Amps, so will take wires from lighting circuits that draw very little current to points via a CDU which draw large amounts of current.

They can be used as a bank of 18 ways or snapped off so you have a 3 way terminal for point motors or signals, and so on

There are 4 fixing holes for each 3 way section.  Price:  £4.50
