remote control Jouef

This type of power supply was revolutionary (it was in the air time ...), at that time in the world of model trains. This is a new power supply system that allows a simplified wiring networks, cuts and additional feeders no longer necessary, and allows the independent control on the same track on several machines with different speeds or direction, and allows a constant lighting passenger coaches and locomotives even when stopped. Technically, it is a system transceiver. To the alternative voltage at 50 Hz, which allows for a constant supply of lights, it is added high frequencies electrical signals that correspond to our speed and direction of different locomotives. To each transmitter channel, there is a specific receiver installed in each corresponding locomotive. The signal is filtered by the HF frequency receiver and it is sent on the trigger of the thyristor, which allows adjusting the average voltage applied to the motor. Some locomotives were equipped with a Jouef-Matic receiver in factory.

If in the first generation of the system, there are only eight receivers and two transmitters, each transmitter may alternatively order to four receivers, and it will take until 1976/1977 for the eight commands truly independent. Both generation remain compatible with a specific coupler. Advances in Electronics can increase the system reliability but it will be not enough to enable a wide distribution of the sytem, receivers or transmitters prices were dissuasive and relatively closed to the price of an electric locomotive (BoBo 9288 SNCF) or diesel (BoBo 66150 SNCF/BoBo 67400 SNCF).
