Intermediate Tie Plate (V2)



BNM Hobbies Free-mo Intermediate Tie Plate Version 2 or ITP-2. (1 Piece)

These PCB parts were machined exclusively for us!

The parts create butt joints anywhere a track joint or removable section of track is needed. They are used in pairs, one on either side of the joint. They are ideal for use in Free-mo or FREMO Module construction.

There are two changes over the original ITP

The first change was adding a full tie space or trough on the end of the tie plate that goes away from the module end. This helps space the last tie on the flextrack or handlaid track the correct distance off the tie plate and gives it a more uniform look as it transitions between the two.

The second change was adding a half tie space or trough on the end of the tieplate that interfaces to another Intermediate Tie Plate Version 2(ITPv2) on the other side of the module gap. The idea being that you'd get a uniform tie spacing across the gap making it more visually appealing.

These two additional spacers, can be scored and snapped off if you don't want to use them and then you'll have the same size and shape tie plate as the original ITP was.

One further change was that I ordered these without the copper base to reduce the costs, but to prevent a shorting problem that was experienced based on the way some people where installing the tie plates.
