Re: NCE EB1 breakers

That puts the breaker at the half way point with 2' of wire either side. I can only suggest increasing the size of the wire between the EB1 and the booster if the wire can not be shortened.

Re: NCE EB1 breakers

The breakers will need to be near the booster. As stated above the problem is most likely due to a drop in track voltage at the input to the breakers. If the breaker is half way between the booster and the fault you will be seeing half track voltage at the input to the EB1(s) during a short which th...

Re: DCC Accessory Compatability

Digitrax feedback to JMRI will be via a Loconet interface on the JMRI computer (Locobuffer, PR3 etc). NCE feedback will be via an NCE cab bus interface (NCE USB) or possibly via an NCE command station with integrated serial interface. The NCE command station may be a requirement - I have not tried u...

How to get feedback of the state of the track. Both have existing NMRA standards for implementation, and there are...
