 There are many methods to implement Toti, and what method is appropriate depends the purpose for which it is required, and on which traction system is used (DC, DCC, or else) -- note: not all methods work with all traction methods. ​ Detectors can use: mechanical switches; current detection (e.g. diode drop or coil); the transmission,​ reflection or interruption of light; magnetism; radio; ultrasound, or video. ​ The method might give simple occupancy information,​ or more extended information including train identification (e.g. RFID, RailCom, Transponding,​ barcodes, Lissy, video etc.). ​  See: [[glossary:​glossary_t#​train_detection|Train Detection]] There are many methods to implement Toti, and what method is appropriate depends the purpose for which it is required, and on which traction system is used (DC, DCC, or else) -- note: not all methods work with all traction methods. ​ Detectors can use: mechanical switches; current detection (e.g. diode drop or coil); the transmission,​ reflection or interruption of light; magnetism; radio; ultrasound, or video. ​ The method might give simple occupancy information,​ or more extended information including train identification (e.g. RFID, RailCom, Transponding,​ barcodes, Lissy, video etc.). ​  See: [[glossary:​glossary_t#​train_detection|Train Detection]]

 +A mechanical device fitted below a point or turnout used to transmit the movement of the motor or manual system to the switch blades of the point/​turnout. The Point Actuating and Locking Mechanism (PALM), a product of Ambis Engineering,​ is an example which may be seen toward the bottom of [[http://​www.ambisengineering.co.uk/​Products/​Products_Index.htm|this webpage]].
