NANO Precision Detector (under-track)



NANO Precision Detector  is the smallest, fastest, most reliable train detector available today AND it slides under the rails of N Scale and all other scales.  No need to dig up your track!

Watch the Video to see how the sensor IGNORS ambient lighting conditions.

The NANO PD has a 9″ twisted wire that allow you to place the sensor under the track and the Detection Controller under the layout.

The video below has both the announcement and the installation video.

Like all our other Precision Detectors this is NOT a reflective IR (Infrared) sensor.  Instead of measuring reflected light it measure the distance of an object in its viewport down to 1mm precision.  That means is works in any light condition and it doesn’t matter if the lighting is constantly changing.  The NANO PD allows you to set the sensing distance for N, HO and O/S with the push of a button.  You can also use the Auto Calibrate more to set the sensing range form 1 to 150mm so the sensor can be placed almost anywhere.

Like the other Precision Sensors you can adjust the timeout (time delay of sensor release) to immediate, 5, 10, 15, 30, 45 and 60 seconds.

The NANO also has auto calibrate so that you can set the sensor distance to anything between 5 and 150mm.

The NANO is available to order today and we will be shipping all order by November 15th.
