The Circuitron, Inc Wabbit can control two Tortoise slow motors, "A" and "B". Each Tortoise controls a turnout. The primary DCC address of each Tortoise is set in the Wabbit. When the DCC Base Station or Controller sends an accessory command to a primary address set in the Wabbit, the addressed Tortoise is moved to Clear or Thrown the turnout based on the accessory command. The DCC++ command for a turnout is <T ID, CLEAR or THROWN> This is translated to the appropriate DCC accessory command.


When several turnouts are needed to setup a given rout, a "Smart Rout' can be defined and programmed into the Wabbit. For example, to move from the head shunt to siding #2 both turnout need to be thrown. Each Smart Rout is assigned a DCC address and the Smart Rout is set into the Wabbit for Tortoise A or B to take the required action.


The table shows the three Smart Routs defined for Inglenook. Smart Rout 102 Clear (or Thrown) sets the turnouts to move from the head shunt to siding #2. Similarly Smart Rout 101 and 103 are for Siding #1 and Siding #3. Note that for Smart Rout #103 does not need the both turnouts.


Addresses 101 and 103 are over loaded with the primary address of the two turnouts.
