Title: DCC Controller Configuration
Post by: RICMonster on January 03, 2018, 04:22:18 PM
I have a EZCommand controller, model #44901 and a DC controller, model #46605A.  I have the correct cable to connect the two and understand the 46605 is intended to work through DCC channel 10.

My question is: can I connect both transformers, model #AC1601000, to increase the current delivered to the rails and control more than the recommended two locomotives?

No, to increase the available amperage to a DCC layout you need what's called a 'booster'.

Bachmann sells one that's compatible with E-Z Command here:  http://shop.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=264_274&products_id=1823


With that connected you can run up to 12 locomotives at once.
