LUX-Modellbau 9310 N Wheel Cleaning Flush Mounted Unit
N Scale/ 1:160
Wheel cleaning systems for all N track and control systems analogue and digital.
Built-in appliances (Part No. 9310 and 9310.7) and table-top appliances (Part No. 9315 and 9315.7) with Faulhaber motor.
- Available as built-in or Desktop unit
- Cleans driven and non-driven wheels of rail-bound model railway vehicles
- Removes oil and dirt residues on the wheels
- Clean wheel treads of the locomotives and wagons
- De-oiled traction tires
- Functional reliability of the model railway vehicles
The N-wheel cleaning system, supplied with driving voltage (analogue and digital) and therefore passable, cleans driven and non-driven wheels of rail-bound model railway vehicles of oil and dirt residues. The device is equally suitable for locomotives and wagons and can be integrated in model rail-cars of complete trains.
The wheel cleaning technique powered by a 12 Volt DC motor (Faulhaber 1 ) causes two polishing rods to oscillate below the locomotive and cartwheel. Thus, a cleaning effect on the wheel tread of locomotives and cars sets. The rolling on the 183 mm long cleaning bars wheel tread is thus completely cleaned even with larger wheel diameters.
When a low driving voltage is fed in, the wheels then turn when the locomotive is stationary. Non-driven wheels (eg carriage wheels) are cleaned by rolling the wheel tread (locomotion) on the oscillating polishing rods. For this purpose, the car is moved manually or by the pulling or pushing locomotive. A manually time-consuming cleaning of the wheel treads is eliminated. Your locomotives and cars get clean wheel treads for optimal contact between rail and wheel.
The engine of the wheel cleaning system is operated with a regulated DC voltage of 0-12 volts (DC). A corresponding supply voltage is provided by standard model railway transformers. In digital mode, the engine is preceded by a locomotive decoder with high-frequency motor control.
With the built-in and table unit, the cleaning surfaces are identical. While the built-in unit is integrated into the model railway layout, we deliver the table unit ready for use mounted on an acrylic glass base. For digital activation, the wheel cleaning system is supplied with a system-compatible decoder (can also be retrofitted). Control-specific decoder (possibly for a surcharge) we build as desired. Please specify when ordering.
The wheel cleaning system for installation should be installed at an easily accessible location, preferably in a side-rail of the model railway layout. For installation, a rectangular track cut-out length of 300 mm, width 40 mm and height 55 mm (from the upper edge of the roadway) is required.
- The wheel cleaning system was designed in accordance with the standards of European Model Railways and is protected by patent.
- The power supply of the drive motor of the wheel cleaning system must not be effected with half-wave and pulse width control.
- Power supply 0-12 volts (DC)
- Power supply digital Multiprotocol decoder (Motorola DCC Selectrix format)
- Current consumption approx. 100 mA
- Maximum motor voltage at the cleaning drive 12 Volt DC
