1  Discussion Boards / Williams by Bachmann / Reverse board with AC motor on: January 11, 2016, 12:56:22 PM
I have a Lionel Rail Diesel Car equipped with a three-poll AC motor: with a solenoid activated reversing unit: and without a sound board.  I bought an W-by-B No. 00249 REVERSE BOARD with LOCKOUT so that I would not ever have to clean the E unit's rotating drum and it's contacts in future.  In your 2015 catalog you advertised "electronic sequence reversing for all locomotives".  I also bought a W-by-B No. 00252 GP 30 TRUE BLAST* PLUS sound board for my RDC engine.  When I received the instruction sheet for your reversing unit it stated that "This board is designed for use with DC motors..."  I do NOT have a DC motor.  Your catalog does NOT mention this requirement.  I have the following questions:
1. How can I get my new 00249 reverse board to work with my existing AC motor?
2. Can I successfully power my existing AC motor with DC current supplied with my new reverse board?
3. Can I power my existing AC motor's field windings with AC current and it's rotor windings with DC current supplied from my new reverse board?
4. If parts of my existing AC motor are supplied with DC current will the RDC car run at slower speeds?
5. Will my new True Blast Sound Board work off my existing AC current or does it have to be supplied with DC current from my new W-by-B Reverse board?
6.  Does W-by-B manufacture a REVERSE BOARD with LOCKOUT that is specifically made for AC powered motors?
7. Should I return the ordered reverse board and sound board for a refunds from Bachmann because they won't work with my equipment?
