    A guy I know has a real railroad crossing with a belle. He wants a sensor that will turn it on and off automaticilly. I know the belle operates on 12vdc. The question is: Does anyone know the amperage for one of these things? I could drive to his house and use an ampmeter, but that is a weekend project. I just can't do that because of time! :eek:

    Thanks for the help,

    Andy - I googled this at http://www.rtands.com/jun99/guide.html:
    So from this I would say about 1-1/2 amps, (unless its the electronic gizmo mentioned above, then its only 0.15 amps).

    Hope this helps.
