Power Booster Solution? (Catch up 2)
Updated: Nov 3
The evening session commenced with a visit from David at DMG/electech to demonstrate how they could assist with boosting power to our O gauge layout and test track following loss of sound and intermittent running of Heljan diesel locomotives when using DCC. Our Powercab unit could not provide sufficient power probably due to multiple electrical joints and members expectations so we were looking for an easy solution. DMG's new 8amp power booster proved itself to be a very efficient unit compatible with Powercab at reasonable outlay.
David also brought along the one piece DCC and DC controller LD101 to look at.
Photos of the rest of the evening with members enjoying running on the test track. Three large Heljan diesels ran at one time on the O gauge circuit trialing the power booster until elderly operator confusion set in causing problems selecting correct buttons on our Powercab proving just too much!!!
