Lower cost than the TORTOISE™, but just as effective, and this device has a height profile about 50% of that of the The TORTOISE™,

Dimensions: 85mm (Wide) x 50mm (Deep) x 30mm (tall)

The product has been cunningly designed to use the blister pack as a dust cover for the motor once fitted!
The Fulgurex Slow Motion Point motor is a true motorised product, via a series of gears, the device moves the point blades in a slow, prototypical manner.

The motor is also provided with auxiliary switch contacts, both N/o and N/c for interconnection with signals and other devices (activate level crossing barriers, or start moving a crane??)

The Fulgurex motor provides constant point tension by nature of the constantly powered stall action and the spring wire transmitting the motion to the points.

Some brands of turnouts such as Peco have an internal over-centre spring which causes a snap action throw. Although this is desirable when used with twin-coil switch machines, it defeats the purpose of the slow, smooth action the Fulgurex is capable of.
In some cases, the tension of the turnout spring is greater than the force available from the stock motor wire, and although the motor will make a complete throw under the layout, nothing happens at the points.

If you experience this problem, one solution is to remove the spring from the Peco turnout. This is easily accomplished if the turnout is not yet mounted, but should be able to be achieved with a little more difficulty even if the turnout is fastened down. Once the motor is installed, the system should operate smoothly and provide positive spring tension at each end of the throw. If you do not want to modify your Peco turnouts, or if you have one mounted inside a tunnel or other inaccessible location, you can still use the motor by substituting a heavier gauge spring wire. (.032” diameter will usually work well). You will need to enlarge the wire hole in the throw arm. If the Peco spring is left intact, we do not recommend using the internal contacts on the motor to power the points and/or frog. Since the point movement will occur when the spring wire force exceeds the Peco spring force, it is not likely that the two will occur exactly at the centre point of the throw, and the possibility of a momentary short circuit then exists.
