1  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Wiring a turnout switch on: December 17, 2018, 02:40:39 PM
Ok well as I wait for that "new" product a new situation has occurred. I used a wall wart, DC powered output, 12 volts - 1 amp....   now my DCC locomotives won't stop when signaled to do so...They slow to a crawl but keep going..Did I screw up the locomotives digital coding?
They were working fine prior to wiring the new switches..  I should note I have four turnouts, two are DCC controlled and the two new ones are wired switches  (wall wart)
Thanks for bearing with me on this...

Great info, Once I posted the question I realized I would have to cut the end of the wall wart... One thing, the gentleman at the hobby store said only power my turnouts with AC not DC as they will eventually burn the switch out...thoughts?

The gentleman at the hobby store told me to use only AC on turnout switches not DC...is this true?

As a relatively new model railroader, I bought what I thought would be a nice fit for me. DCC,  I'm not sure I care for it but that's the controller I now have..I want to wire a few turnouts that are not DCC. My EZ command controller has no accessory port for non DCC turnouts.  Question, Can I power the turnout using the rerailer? I notice it has two power ports on each side of the rerailer...I understand that DCC sends full time power to the track, is this AC or DC current?
If that is not an option what is next step to wire these turnouts if I can"t use my controller or rerailer...
Im guessing a separate power supply? Transformer? how many volts would that have to be..Recommendations appreciated..
The ends of the red wire have flat terminals the other end has the standard plug type that goes to the switch....A wall wart does not have the proper set up for this red wire

Set up a Echo Valley train set DCC EZ controller..Everything works fine and seems to be a great starter set ecept for one issue. The locomotive sometimes will not stop when controller is hard over to stop..Train keeps crawling.  Other times it will stop when directed to..frustrating..Return set to Amazon or get help here.....
