  1. Change Cv150 to value 1 using the Elite - Menu - loco - direct - cv - input 150, input value 1. all done on the programming track of course. All the rest of your fault diagnosis has no effect on motor control.
  2. Recent forum activity suggests that these more modern variant 0-4-0 locos may be fitted with a resistor to tame the motor. If this resistor is removed as part of the DCC conversion clean up then it is going to affect the basic running characteristics.
  3. Standard DCC motor output is 0%12v Dc PSM. Cv5 can be used on many decoders to limit V- max, but needs Cv6 to be adjusted to match - V-mid.
  4. As will the older R8216 noting as stated earlier this is a pulse only device and cannot be set to continuous output.
  5. Or even just reading the instructions that come with every TTS decoder.
  6. If the decoder is reading the address back as value 255 likely it was simply not reading the decoder for whatever reason.
  7. Adding to what Nigel has said. The 1-amp power supply protects in a fault condition by dropping its output voltage. This causes the Select to continually reboot - the screen will keep showing the startup sequence of numbers over and over while the fault is present. The 4-amp power supply relies upon the Select taking care of overloads and shorts, by way of what is commonly termed an internal self resetting fuse (Select). If using your 2.5-amp power then what protection does it have as you will not reach the Select self protect level. Even if you can connect your 10-amp unit
  8. Connecting a separate power supply to the track is likely to damage the controller, depending upon what that supply output is. Use the 4-amp power brick from the Elite if you need to run more locos from your Select. Folk often think a DCC Booster is adding more oomph to the existing track but it doesn’t. A DCC Booster is connected to an isolated power district powered by the booster module power supply. The DCC signal is passed from the one and only DCC controller to the Booster module which passes it to the second power district. If your controller has Boos
  9. I have used it to power a CDU to fire solenoids before on the test bench.
  10. Yes F18 for steam F25 for diesel.
  11. I think the TTS definition files in JMRI tell of the ID decodes. See main TTS topic in Sound section.
  12. Or you could use Train-Tech sensor signals, which self time out in sequence after a train has passed.
  13. The R965 controller has a 16vAC aux output so likely suitable for the task. The OP title mentions Railmaster so just power the LS150 up and pick it from the RM drop down list for programming.
  14. The usual fudge to produce a flicker is wire a flashing led in series with a steady other colour led and a suitable resistor of course. The varying intensities as they light and fade under control of the flasher will produce a fairly realistic effect. TTS as stated runs decoder function three output under control of key F25 on the blue and green wires. Output function should not be confused with sound outputs on key F3.
