MTB Switchmotor

MTB plans a new, very interesting switchmotor for model railroad.
The size is excellent and also there are a few very interesting details and solutions unknown on any similar commercial products.
Look at this video:

Not only you, I have also almost all 50 servos in my boxes and few of them already on layout.......

Too late for MTB..

BTW: I do not know why I do not see the video here ( just hear the sound).... :-)

Some pictures showing the size of the switch motor compared to Tortoise and Hoffman.
Works with voltage from 8 to 15 V. It does not matter if AC or DC.

... and has it has also one hidden, but excellent feature: The internal motor is running always in the same direction, therefore no polarity change is required ( not like all competitors) so it is extremely easy to control in AC or in DC circuits, only connect to the corresponding input the power and the motors turns to the next position.
Perfect idea!

WOW. That's awesome. Mark, is Sazmodel going to stock them?

That is really cool, but how do you know?
I guess I have to postpone my project or alter my timeline just for these motors. For me, it looks like the Holy Grail!!!
Please Mark from Sazmodel bring it to North America. If the price is right, this is a legit alternative.

It has been developed in cooperation with Prague model train club. One of the members who also works for MTB explained its function. Because of this feature, you cannot select any random travel distance (like on Tillig's switch motor). You can chose only 3, 6, or 9 mm. 3 mm should be OK for TT scale switches. (setting the travel distance is shown in the video).
The fixed travel distances should not cause any problem. Any other travel distance can be obtained mechanically if needed.
If the price and reliability is right, and if it gets some marketing, it has a chance for success much higher than any MTB's model.

I'd modify your wish (if I may) to: Mark please bring it to Canada and Rob please bring it to Europe and USA. :lol:

What is the advantage here over a three dollar airplane model servo motor?

Its ready made design for model trains. You do not need to convert the servo rotation to linear movement, you do not need to design your switches for frog polarisation, or feedback. You do not need an extra driver circuitry for servos, or do not need to open the airplane servos and remove the internal electronics. :-)
