I have   telephoned the Dynamis service number but I am just kept waiting for ever, I tried emailing them but it is only possible through a "form" on their web page and when I press the "send" a  window invariably appears "sorry your message could  not be sent at this time"
That is the reason I contacted Bachmann direct. I hope they forward my letter to the people in charge of Dynamis.

Brand New Bachmann Spectrum item number 36505 E-Z Command Dynamis Wireless Infrared DCC System.

Why does the left green LED start flashing every so often for no apparent reason? The manual says it indicates a short on the track so I checked with a multimeter and this is absolutely not so.
I suspect that the Peco turnouts motors I have draw so much that the infrared signal is weakened and is lost. I have noticed that just after sending the signal to activate a turnout motor the signal weakens to 0. When the signal returns a second later the motor is activated.
I also suspect that the Dynamis is defective because the infrared signal and the power to the track comes and goes erratically , sometimes it might stay on for a few minutes, then all works correctly, sometimes it will stay of for a few minutes and nothing works.
I tested the infrared  range of the Dynamis by pointing the hand set  straight at the receiver and increasing the distance by backing up slowly, I invariably lost the signal completely at 3 yards distance.

I am not just ready yet to give up on Dynamis.  It was not exactly cheap. As  my last resort I am going to connect the Digitrax D64 decoder controlling 4 peco motors directly to 12 v. Which is an option.
