Some hints and tips for model railway electronics
- Only use the controller to power your trains where possible.
- Use a separate power supply For model lighting and accessories.
- Use multiple track power feeds on large layouts.
- Do not use high frequency track cleaners on DCC layouts.
- Use insulated rail joints when connecting loops.
- Solder joints are better than push on rail joiners.
- Solenoid point motors work best from a CDU.
- When connecting an LED to a 12v power supply use a 1k resistor.
- When using a 12v lamp running it at 9v will prolong its life.
- Use an electronic circuit breaker to protect your controller
