I'm encouraged by those who have installed a PSX-1 AC in their track power circuit(s). I bought one, but haven't installed it yet because I'm figuring out how to "hide" it inside a trackside building.
To do that, I'll need to extend the LED indicators on the circuit board to an appropriate location on the trackside building within view of the control panel. I bought LEDs from TONY'S TRAINS; one is a steady ON to show that the device is ON, and the other one is a flashing red LED to show a short. I'll need a reset button too. I'll "pass" on the add-on buzzer.
I intend to install the PSX-1 AC in the track power circuit of my MTH Z1000 "brick," which has a built-in fast-acting circuit breaker; however, I want the extra layer protection for the onboard circuit boards inside a MTH Aerotrain loco.
Has anyone already done this "hidden PSX-1 AC" project? If so, your advice welcome! My e-mail address is in my OGR FORUM profile.
With thanks in advance,
