The Hornby R8247 Accessory decoder offers the ability to be able to change points and operate accessories with the minimum of wiring and fuss which is one of the main attractions of digital control. Wiring points up in the old analogue fashion can be quite a daunting exercise.

On some layouts which have numerous points this can mean that there are metres upon metres of cabling plus a whole bank of switches. Hours can be spent carefully wiring up the points only to find that there is a fault or an intermittent connection which means more hours of crawling about on the floor trying to locate the problem.

The Hornby R8247 Accessory/Point Decoder can be programmed to accommodate four point motors or solenoid operated accessories, plus other electrical accessories that require a constant or delayed current flow, for example a turntable.

Connection of the points or accessories to the Hornby Accessory/Point Decoder is straightforward. The four outputs are factory set for the operation of solenoid (point) motors, however, by adjusting the CV settings of each output a graduation of varying ‘bursts’ of current up to a constant current (turntable motor operation, lighting, etc.) can be obtained for each individual output.

Hornby R8247 Accessory Decoder

They dont respond as they should. Should have continued to operate points by hand. I programmed my devices separately but the points they are programmed for are not the ones that work. And one decoder has stopped working altogether. Very frustrating spending hours figuring out how to get them to work

Very versatile bit of kit. Have used for both point motors and colour light signals. Only thing is it has to be charged on the main track for a while before programming, or it wont read properly
