I have a Canadian Pacific postwar celebration series passenger set that draws A LOT of power. It consists of an F3 ABBA totalling 4 AC motors, 2 Railsounds units and about 10 cars. I keep triggering the fold-back protection on my ZW-L as this train hits the 180 watt ceiling for a single throttle.
Is it possible to splice (dovetail) two output terminals on the ZW-L to achieve a combined 360 watts? Would I run the risk of damaging components like FET's with backflow if the throttle outputs aren't equalized?
I'm sure there are layouts out there with multiple loops powered by separate throttles. I'm also fairly certain that some of these people have trains crossing between blocks where there would be at least some momentary "bridging" between blocks when roller sets cross an insulated joint? What happens in this instance? Is a momentary bridging between outputs acceptable, but not a longer-term connection?
