Front Mount and Back Mount Fascia Controllers

Front Mount – New Design!

Front Mount Fascia Controller

The new Front Mount Fascia Controller uses a controller board mounted on the back of a bezel. The bezel mounts flat and the controller board fits inside a hole in the panel. The bezel provides a clean appearance, a wide viewing angle for the LEDs, and recesses the button.

Front Mount Fascia Controller Features

Designed for simple mounting on the front of your control panel. Comes fully assembled with on-board pushbutton, Green-Red LEDs and drive electronics.

Square – 13/16″ on a side and mounts with #2 screws (included). Drill five 1/16″ pilot holes then enlarge the center hole to 9/16″ to clear the components. Use the available Drill Template (see below) for fast installs.

Round – 3/4″ diameter and mounts with caulk or glue. Drill one 9/16″ hole to clear the components.

Available in Black or White to blend with your control panel.

Configured for Dual Green-Red LEDs out of the box. Change to dual Green-only LEDs with two trace cuts. Change to a single Green-Red LED for crossovers with two trace cuts. See table below.

Includes a 12″ cable for connection to a QuadLN_S I/O port. Add servo extension cables as needed for longer distances. Parallel multiple Fascia Controllers using Y cables.

Back Mount – CLOSEOUT!

Back Mount Fascia Controller

Back Mount Fascia Controller
The Back Mount Fascia Controller uses a controller board mounted onto a carrier board. This approach causes the controller board to be inserted into the hole in the panel. The result is easier access to the pushbutton, a wider viewing angle for the LEDs, and a cleaner overall appearance. The vertical screw hole spacing has been increased slightly to help prevent breakthrough into the center hole.

Two sets of mounting holes provide vertical hole alignment for both righthand and lefthand turnouts. When required for close spacing, the unused, overlapping corners can be clipped off.

Back Mount Fascia Controller Features

Designed for simple mounting on the back of your control panel. Comes fully assembled with on-board pushbutton, Green-Red LEDs and drive electronics.

Two sets of mounting holes ensure mounting screws are always aligned vertically whether used for a righthand or a lefthand turnouts.

The rear carrier board inserts fascia controller board 0.060″ into the hole in the panel. This results in easier access to the pushbutton, a wider viewing angle for the LEDs, and a cleaner overall appearance.

Just 0.65″ x 1″ in size which permits close spacing when required. Trim the unused mounting locations with diagonal cutters for even tighter spacing when adjacent turnouts face opposite directions.

Configured for Dual Green-Red LEDs out of the box. Change to dual Green-only LEDs with two trace cuts. Change to a single Green-Red LED for crossovers with two trace cuts. See table below.

Available in Black or White to blend with your control panel.

Easy to install. Drill three 3/32″ pilot holes on 7/16″ spacing, then enlarge the center hole to 9/16″ for the components. Use the available Drill Template (see below) for fast installs.

Includes a 12″ cable for connection to a QuadLN_S I/O port. Add servo extension cables as needed for longer distances. Parallel multiple Fascia Controllers using Y cables.

Configuring Front Mount and Back Mount Fascia Controllers

Easily configure the Fascia Controllers via trace cuts to match the trackwork or to best fit the color-vision abilities of the operators. The trace cuts are on the back of the board: GREEN trace cuts at the bottom left and top right, and RED trace cuts at the bottom right and top left. Here is a table showing three configurations.
