Get the Gaugemaster CDU instead or any other make of CDU if you want to change more than one set of points at the same time. The Peco unit is a bit weak.

I found the Peco CDU to be useless, one set of points leaves it exhausted.

I have to agree its not one of the best CDUs

However as for the number, its really unlimited as you normally only operate one or two points at the same time and this is what the CDU feeds to and moves all others remain unused until their switches or levers are moved. :D
