Overview of Cobalt Classic:
Cobalt Classic Ω is a very powerful analog motor, but it’s gentle on your turnouts. Available singly and in packs of six or twelve.
A moveable fulcrum allows easy adjustment of blade closure pressure and ensures that throw can be easily adjusted irrespective of scale, type of point-work or thickness of baseboards.
Cobalt Classic Ω has THREE on-board SPDT switches – one linked to the two power input wires is “diode controlled” and is perfect for panel lights or switching of signals, low current relay control or feedback/computer IO. The other two are tough 5 amp SPDT switches that you can use for frog power or any other form of switching/interlocking around the layout.
Cobalt Classic Ω is compatible with all common modelling gauges from Z to G scale, and can be used with 2 or 3 rail systems from any brand, whether the layout is AC, DC or DCC powered. Cobalt Classic Ω is easily and economically converted for DCC use with the addition of purpose designed AD-Series accessory decoders.
(If you are using DCC and already have solenoid accessory decoders, that’s okay too – You can power Cobalt Classic Omega Ω with accessory decoders designed for three wire solenoids if you also use our DCCconcepts SDC adapters.)
Cobalt Classic Ω draws very little current and is designed to be powered by any regulated DC power supply. We recommend 9v DC regulated…but because it includes a simple-to-use voltage range change switch, you can use any DC power supply between 7 and 18v.
With its low current draw (Varies with voltage but typically 20mA) big power supplies are not needed, so you can choose to use any appropriate sized “wall plug” type regulated DC power supply for a smaller layout.
For larger layouts, we strongly recommend our excellent PSU-2 power supply, which, because of its unique 9v+9v “split-rail” configuration, both supplies the perfect voltage and even further simplifies wiring!
We also offer a complete range of Cobalt accessories for Cobalt Classic Ω – switch packs with panel mount LEDS, foam mounting pads for even quieter operation, tie-bar stickers to disguise the mounting holes and accessory packs that even include the drills needed for installation.
Most importantly, all Cobalt Classic Ω point motors also are guaranteed for life, so as long as you own any Cobalt point motor, it is under warranty and in the rare event of a fault, we will, as needed, replace it or repair any problem that may arise… so you can be confident that when buying ANY Cobalt motor, it will indeed be the last point motors you ever need to buy!
