Title: Multiple crissoves
Post by: Jody821 on February 03, 2019, 07:08:48 AM
Can multiple crossovers and turn outs be daisy chained for power?

If what you're asking is if more than one crossover and/or turnout can by operated by one control, then the answer is yes. For EZ-Track turnouts and crossovers, with the built in control plut, it will some wire cutting and splicing to do this.

You can operate two at a time, as in a crossover, from most power supplies. More than that may cause problems unless you add a capacitor discharge unit to the circuit.

Switch motors are wired in parallel, so every one you add that is operated off the same control box is going to further decrease the power to them.

CDU's are the best for firing twin coil machines and not burning them out.
Last I knew, Gaugemaster, Peco and Circuitron Snapper are sold in the USA.

Trainman203;
I think multiple crissoves are like croissants, we're just supposed to eat them. :) :)
