Four areas of concern:
To be absolutely clear, the wiring is to be run as follows:
1032 U to timer module
1032 B to Ac/DC CONVERTER module
independent of AC/DC converter module, B also attaches to outside rail and fixed voltage accessories
- should I run B to a terminal block and then run a line to the module and one or more to outside rails and accessories
From the timer module run line to center rail. the same wires go to power drops
Signal gates are connected to outer rail and both C & B from transformer
I understand the connections between the two modules and the 153irs
- DUH! I just realized their is no direct connection between the 153ir and the track itself (you told me, but a drawing is worth ....)
But, is the timer on the 153ir used? If so, One timer is set longer than the other?
it looks like I’m going to be using 16 gauge stranded wire for the lines that go to the tracks I also have 18 gauge solid wire which I could use if the connection to the timer module is too small I also have 18/2 solid core wire which would make less of a mess under the table (see pic). Any recommendation?
A friend who became aware of this project offered this unsolicited advice. He gave me the pictured AC Adapter (modified it seems) with instructions to attach the reds to the positive inputs on the boards and black to the negative. He suggested it would be easier. I don’t understand what the hook ups might be (yours I do, now). Its output is 12 volts (you said use 10). Would both plans work? Is there any reason to switch. Could I use the AC converter for any other purpose?
