NEC BOOSTER 2 POWER DISTRICTS

Recommended Posts

Hi all im in the process of wiring a dcc layout approx 11 mtr x 3 mtr and have decided to supply power to both halves of the circuit via a NCE SB5 and DB5 both supplying 5 amps to each half of the circuit.

Have isolated both halves using plastic fish plates, unfortunately i have found my locos with pick ups on both axles shorting out when passing from one isolated section to the next, i know i should have realised this, apart from adding a loner isolated section does anyone have an ideas ?1367319469_rezisedwestonpark.png.2030878352d3806a1590944ba7626e08.png

The most likely cause of the short is that the track feed from one booster is not the same way round as the other. Try reversing the feeds on one booster.

You can also change most boosters to auto-reverse polarity and overcome the issues that you are having. I don't know if yours do, but worth checking
