    BDL168 Block Detection

    Posted by Ken on Jun 29th 2018

    It's difficult to get the straight story on what this board is actually for. Some dealers will tell ya it's all ya need to get your signal block detection going. Once you have gone through the instructions and ya find someone who might know what it does, ya find out ya need the SE8C too. Oh, did you want the three aspect signals? I'm sorry but you will have to buy some other hardware to make that happen and good luck with figuring it out.
    Yeah, I never did get mine up and running. After a month of screwing around with this and a bit at a time discovering gotcha notes in the instructions, I quit and put mine on eBay.

    I Was Wrong

    Posted by Ken Meade on Jun 29th 2018

    In my previous review, I described the BDL168 as difficult to setup. After reviewing my work, I found that I had made an incorrect wire connection and failed to notice it after numerous checks in the troubleshooting steps.
    My apologies to Digitrax.

    Easy operations opening up!

    Posted by Michael Molloy on Jun 29th 2018

    With the help of a friend, and my son (doing the crawl around under the layout stuff) we had the BDL wired up in about 2 hrs. We now have detection for 16 sections on my layout, and it has opened up a whole new world of operational options. It was straightforward to install and I found the instructions to be comprehensive and fairly easy to follow.
