1  Discussion Boards / E-Z App / Dimensions (space) available above EZ App board (in shell) on: December 19, 2017, 02:36:31 PM
I'd like to get some EZ Apps. I have a question. Does anyone ever have their shell off and know how much space is available between the shell and the circuit board? 5mm? 10mm?  Do any EZ App locos have more headroom above the board than others? Or is there basically no overhead space on any of them?

The instructions for the turnout have a wiring diagram:

I think the idea is you power it using AC jacks on any power supply (like the Bachmann power supply).

Some MRC DC power supplies generate pulsed power spikes that manage to slip through the h-bridge in the EZ App board and can damage components.  The EZ App userguide recommends you avoid MRC power supplies to power the rails.  I would use a Bachmann power supply to be safe.
3  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Questions about EZ Command on: December 18, 2017, 03:33:34 PM
I am interested in EZ Command and have a couple of questions:

How many volts does the EZ Command put out?

Is the EZ Command used for HO and N? Or is there a second version for N?

Thank you.
4  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Understanding the power spec on the EZ Command on: November 03, 2017, 10:14:42 PM
I was curious about the exact spec of the DCC signal that comes out of the EZ Command, which from what I understand can be either connected to a track (to control 2 trains) or can be connected to a 5amp power booster.

It says 1 AMP. Is this 1 AMP peak or 1 AMP continuous?

Is it 14 volts?

Thank you.

Thanks. I'm referring to the DC Thomas (without sound)

Does anyone know what the max current draw is for Large Scale Thomas?
7  Discussion Boards / Large / Understanding wires to add a decoder to a Heisler on: August 30, 2017, 11:42:36 AM
A friend is trying to add a decoder to a Large Scale Bachmann Heisler. I have looked through the online parts/manuals and cannot locate a manual to understand the wiring. I will put a picture of the board below. Can someone please help me identify the wires to add a decoder and/or possibly find the manual online?  Also, does anyone know if this loco has LEDs or incandescent?  Thanks

8  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Can Bachmann DCC locos be programmed on the main? on: July 28, 2017, 04:43:50 PM
Can Bachmann DCC locos be programmed on the main? Or do they need to go on a programming track in Service Mode?

Thanks
10  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Will a Bachmann GP7 shell fit on a GP35 chassis? on: July 11, 2017, 01:29:14 PM
Can I take the shell from my Bachmann GP7 and put it on the chassis of a GP35 (EZ APP)?
11  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Round circuit board on the end of Toby's motor on: July 09, 2017, 04:24:20 PM
I posted this question in the Thomas section and got no replies.

I am modifying a G scale Toby to run with a BlueRail board. Inside Toby, a set of orange and brown wires lead to a small round circuit board on the end of the motor. It seems to have some resistors and a few capacitors. What does this circuit board do? Can I leave this circuit board in place? (BlueRail uses the same pulse-width-modulation to run motors that a decoder does to run motors).

13  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Do all Bachmann DCC SoundTraxx locos have keep alives? on: June 09, 2017, 02:48:36 PM
Are there keep alives in all Bachmann DCC SoundTraxx locos?
14  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Wiring a momentary circuit to trigger an EZ Track turnout on: May 25, 2017, 02:31:02 PM
Thanks. I'm using a BlueRail board. If anyone knows if my polarity reversal is cool feel free to chime in. Otherwise I'll just give it a shot.
15  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Wiring a momentary circuit to trigger an EZ Track turnout on: May 25, 2017, 11:49:51 AM
I have some leads that I can control wirelessly with a smartphone, and I am trying to utilize them to control an EZ Track turnout.  I have 1 common positive lead, and I have up to 4 negative leads. I am able to control each of these negative leads as a momentary switch (from my smart device).

I'm wondering if I can use them similar to the 3 wires typically used, except that the polarity is swapped (I would have a single positive lead, and 2 negative leads).
